Good box choices?
Naturally, as a kid, we make lists for the holidays and whatnot.
Since my list was reasonably small, perse, the prices of things could be a bit higher.
As for hockey cards, this is what I asked for-
11-12 Ultimate Box
12-13 Artifacts (2 boxes)
12-12 Series 1
Good choices? Bad?
I'm an Artifacts fanatic, so of course I had to ask for some.

Not bad if that is what you like! Also depends on who is buying you cards - anyone not in the hobby usually craps a kitten when I tell them how much stuff costs, so I usually just ask them to go by Target and get me a $10 blaster or something...LF these ITG Decades 1980's Autos: Tony Esposito SP, Mario Lemieux SP, Mark Messier EDM SP, Mark Messier CAN SP, Patrick Roy SP, Vladislav Tretiak SP. Also may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs; need Lindbergh Decades Trophy Winner Black. PC includes Sakic, Vaive, Salming, Lafleur, Shutt and anyone named Stastny except Yan. Also buying Tokarski rookie year cards if priced right.

Im 16. I usually ask for money because when I tell them that I want $90 box of cards I get a look that my dog gives me. I then give my mom the money and buy a box of cards I want on D&A on her credit card.
If your family does buy you boxes I would advise staying away from ultimate. I always wanted to get a box of that and pulled the trigger last year and it hurt. I would advise you getting 2 boxes of contenders at $53 a box on atlanta sports cards. Artifacts is very choice. 12-13 series 1 is not agood choice with no big rookies to hit its not worth it. Id advise 11-12 spx 11-12 certfied both around same price!
Good Luck!Bucket: Hidden Content

Luckily my brother (VanekSnipes) used to collect cards, so my dad understands from his explaining why the prices are what they are.
