If were up to me I would wait until when for the 2013s to come out and then you can get a nice selection in the Topps or the Heritage. I say this cause in 2006 I was thinking the same and then I saw the previews for the Heritage I knew then I was sold on them just by what they were offering in them. Thats my pick on your case is wait it out for the 2013s."Any ballplayer that doesn't sign Autographs for little kids Ain't an American. He is a Communist"-Rogers Hornsby on Signing an Autograph as a Manager in 1942 with the St. Louis Browns.

Why do you want a case? What do you collect? Sets? Players? Teams? Are you hoping to rip a case and sell? I love ripping packs as much as the next guy and used to buy Heritage and Topps Chrome by the case every year...that was when I collected the sets. I no longer collect sets (although thinking about 2013 Heritage) and instead of buying cases I participate in group breaks and purchase a lot of higher end PC stuff for a fraction of what the box or case would have cost me.
Keep in mind that in most cases are piles and piles of base that can be difficult to move...
A little more info about what you collect or expect to get from a case would help people offer suggestions. Good Luck! Rob
