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 this ITG Decades 1980's Autograph: AMM2 - Mark Messier CAN SP. Also need many Emblems and Numbers from ITG Decades 1980's and may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs from that set.
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!
