Default Need suggestion - $125 to spend on Star Wars.

I just sold my digital Star Wars collection and want to grab some physical cards. I did a few boxes of Galaxy in the past. Any suggestion on how to spend $125 today? Boxes or individual cards? I don't do ebay, but I do have money in PayPal.

Curious, how did you sell your digital collection? I started out strong and kind of fizzled out, not sure whether to keep going or if someone would actually buy my collection

Thanks, been looking there.

I sold through a Facebook group I was a part of. I had every insert except vintage, hoth, and Nightbrothers.

Find a few talented artists that you like, and commission them for sketches of characters or scenes you want

Buy a box of Empire Strikes illustrated out at the end of the month, or pre-order a box of chrome 2 if you don't mind waiting longer.

It depends on what you want. If you want the enjoyment of opening boxes, go that route. Otherwise, you'll likely get more for your $$ buying singles you want.

I don't collect Star Wars, but if I did, I'd go for the 1977 Topps series.

Decent choice, I have opened 4 boxes of that and felt that 3 of them I got more value than I paid.
