Default What are your top 10 hobby boxes

Just want to see what your top 5 (more if you have) hobby boxes are that you buy now or whish you had bought . I have not been collecting for that long, so I am still getting my head around what is out there and what they have to offer.
My list is as follows: Alias S1, 2010 Panini Americana I Century Collection, 2011 Panini Americana,Celebrity Movie Posters Collector Cards, Topps American Heritage, Topps Indiana Jones - Masterpieces, Topps Lord of the Rings LOTR Masterpieces. Thanks

Expect to see a lot of the Walking Dead S1

I'd probably go with 2007 Marvel Masterpieces, Iron Man 1 Movie, Avengers Assemble and Garbage Pail Kids Flashback 1. No specific order... just boxes I would buy if I could get them anywhere near MSRP.

Are you talking about investment opportunities that were missed?

If so, there are many Star Trek releases that did nothing but rise in value from the Skybox Original Series seasons to Star Trek 2009...

Hmmm, along this same line of thought, what are the best boxes for high profile autos?

Ex.
Tomb Raider - Jolie
Willy Wonka - Depp
Iron Man 1 - Downey, Bridges
X-men Origins Wolverine - Jackman, Reynolds
Indiana Jones Heritage - Ford

I think its your personal top 5 for whatever you do with cards. I'm primarily a collector, so I picked boxes I wish I bought (or bought more of) when they were affordable. If you are mostly a seller then probably your list will be missed opportunities.

Honestly

1. Twilight-purely for the fact that these boxes are like gold now and could easily buy me whatever I want lol

2. Supernatural boxes-would have been nice to complete the master sets for these when they came out as its my favorite show but now adays all the puzzle pieces are just too expensive.

3. Star Trek 2009- great product and one of the funniest breaks I've done. 2 autos a box pretty much guaranteed main cast auto.

4-Razor Ink Archives & vault-these dried up fast and gave you so much variety from inkworks leftover stock. Too bad they never did a box with the pieceworks as I'm sure they had plenty leftover to do a release for them.

5. Avengers Assemble- Just got too expensive too fast as the auto lineup and amount of costumes cards gave you a good bang for your buck.

Not specifically investment opportunities, just boxes that you missed out on or realized they were a great buy after the fact or even, as in my case, never bought due to what ever reason. (Mine, I only just started collecting a few years ago and have missed a lot of boxes that I would have loved to have bought.)
