I like Platinum and Topps Prime. With Platinum, every card looks like an insert Smile Plus, you can usually get blasters of each at Target. Rookies and Stars is cool too..JMO!

If we trade, please respect me by shipping out BEFORE my end arrives!

Score and Topps are the most low-end you can go. Topps Jumbo wouldn't be bad either. A lot of base but also an auto/gu thrown in there with nice some short prints and a few nice reprint designs.

I say Topps Prime, it's reasonably priced and have seen some great hits! I like the photography on the cards also.

Thanks. Went out and got a few packs of 2012 Topps this afternoon. Got a few inserts/parallels. I think my favorite is the Ed Reed throwback design mini-tall boy.

I'll have to consider that. I just got regular Topps. I did pull a Paramount Pair Dez Bryant/Justin Blackmon. Thanks for the advice.

Don't forget to check your commons for the SPs too.

Currently trying to build 2010 Gridiron Kings
I collect Steve Young, Manny Lawson, Roger Craig and most things Niners.

Well does it matter the year? If not go with score inscriptions or there's a few from last year. You are more likely to get some better hits from 2011 than 2012 because this years class is ehhh

My choice for the prices that Prime and Platinum go for would be Certified. I'm not sold on the redesign this year but it has been great since 2010.
If you want to try some last years stuff out, Absolute prices have dropped to around $100.
2012 Finest mini boxes have an auto in each and you get a shot at die cut inserts and refractor parallels.

I'd say stay away from Absolute, or anything else with limited packs. Jdetter is right, you want to find something decent go with Score inscriptions, the only hits are autos, quite a few low $ cards and a healthy mix of vets and rcs.
