RECOMMENDATIONS for boxes
Going to Vegas in a couple of weeks and looking to buy 2 boxes to break out by the pool. Other than collecting Manning rookies, I have little to no knowledge and familiarity with which recent (2010-2011) boxes are popular or favorites...

Any advice or recommendations is greatly appreciated... Would like to keep the budget under $325 for 2 boxes. Thanks!

very respectfully,
Courey M.

RE: RECOMMENDATIONS for boxes
I dont recommend any 2011. If anything, you should get some 2011 score. At around $30 a box, its inexpensive and a fun break.

RE: RECOMMENDATIONS for boxes
I would also steer clear of 2011 for now. In 2010, I enjoyed Panini Plates & Patches, Panini Certified & UD SP Authentic (college uniforms but nice hits to be found)

RE: RECOMMENDATIONS for boxes
Yeah I like busting lots of packs usually but I like the look of plates & patches. For when I get eager to do some pack busting I would get 2010 gridiron gear or 2010 sp authentic.

RE: RECOMMENDATIONS for boxes
LOL I had the worst luck with Panini products in 2010 but pretty good luck with Topps Chrome, Platinum and Magic, which were also fun to open because of the various refractors, inserts, minis, etc. I would agree with everyone else about staying away from 2011, but if it were me I would get 1 box of a 2010 Panini Product (like Gridiron Gear), 1 box of a 2010 Topps product, and 1 box of an UD product (SP Authentic.) Good luck with whatever you choose!

Collecting Raiders cards, esp. Tatum, Lester Hayes, Al Davis, Janikowski, Darren McFadden & Jacoby Ford. Also collect boxing.

2010 Topps Chrome is a cheap and fun one. That would leave enough cash in the budget for a box of 2010 Contenders. Although Contenders is kind of weak if you ask me. I'd just get like 6 boxes of chrome!

Topps Chrome, topps magic, sp authentic, classics, threads, platinum. All from 2010 or prior. they can all be had still, at a pretty reasonable price, from blowout.com etc. for 345, you could get more than two, and have that much more of a fun break.

RE: RECOMMENDATIONS for boxes
I like the idea of picking one from each company for 2010. Approximate prices listed on right:

Topps--2010 Topps Magic--unique, "old school" feel, fun inserts, at least 3 autos/box--$85
Panini--2010 Crown Royale--beautiful card design, usually 2 autos/box plus a couple jerseys--$70
Upper Deck--2010 SP Authentic--lots of packs, great hits, simple,elegant design--$100

Looking for QB autos & New York Giants
