Alright you hockey folks out there, recommend me a box to break!!!
I'm feeling froggy, got some extra $$$ and I just want to break a box, not just any box but a HOCKEY box, maybe it's due to the NHL Lockout, maybe it's due to the increase play time of NHL13, I just miss hockey... Thing is I've never broken a hockey box before and I pretty much know nothing when it comes to hockey cards.
I've been looking around and I REALLY like the FOREVER RIVALS box, been looking at some of the cards on eBay and I like the way they look, the price isn't cheap yet it's not insanely expensive and for the amount of hits in one box I feel you get what you pay for, I also like the fact that it has a small base set the ONLY problem is I'm neither a fan of the Canadiens or the Leafs...
So basically I am looking for something along the same price range that offers and equal amount of hits but is not limited to just 2 teams, any recommendations?

Another one is Luxury Suite from 10/11...from what I hear the resell value isn't good, but you can pull some really cool auto's and patches from it. A lot of people don't like this product though.

However, if you want something similar, I'd say stick to non-2012/13 products outside of 12/13 Artifacts. If you don't mind parallels, Artifacts is a good buy. However, Luxury Suite (Around $90), Contenders (at anything below $70 is an insane deal). My personal favourite in this price range of $100 would be 11/12 Certified. I liked it. However it is all personal preference. Go through the box break forums and see if there is anything you like :)

Contenders would be my choice.
Just did 4 boxes this weekend and got 2 patches /100 and 11 hardsigned cards among other things most fun i had breaking for awhile.

Well I have appreciated all the input, I was browsing around looking at ITG because I really love how the Forever Rivals set looks and came across their 2011-12 Enforcer product. I love the way it looks and the idea and creativity of it, not to mention 7 hits for 55 bucks s definitely worth the price. I now have a box on the way and I am excited!
