How much are you looking to spend?
I enjoy the lower end cards, mostly budget based
Score is my favourite bang for the back
You can get boxs for $30-$35
Other memebrs here can give you more information on the more expensive stuff

upper deck products hold their value the best, just go all out and buy a box of the cup..$500+ ..j/k
sp authentic $115-$200 per, o-pee-chee \$30-$100, crown royale $100 per....these are what i prefer.
take a look at ebay and see what look you like first before you commit to buying a box. my .02

On the lower end I enjoy 11/12 Pinnacle and 10/11 Donruss the most, especially if you just want some fun and maybe to start some sets instead of making a big profit. Moving up a bit towards the $70-$100 range I like UD Series 1 or 2 in most recent years. Past a hundred bucks I don't know, I never drop that much on a single hobby box.

So many choices. A lot of it will depend on how much you want to spend on a box. Are you looking for resale value? Check auction sites and see what some of the cards look like and take it from there.
I just started collecting again this year and tried a little bit of everything except the high end stuff. I personally like the Parkhurst, Crown Royale and ITG Captain C.

I refuse to answer ur question until I know what type of collector you are! do you want to build sets? collect autos? jerseys? team collect? That's gunna be what determines what box you should get.

It is hard to say unless your preferences are known and a rough budget.
