    What is the best box to get?

    What do you guys prefer? I really like strata and certified but Ive already had 3 boxes of certified. I'm thinking about getting a box of momentum. What do you guys suggest? I can't really afford the really expensive boxes like sterling or exquisite.

    Momentum has 10 hits, which is nice. But I found them to be lower end autos in the box I bought. Everyone seems to love chrome, me as well. But you only get one hit per hobby box. I have to say I have purchased two blaster boxes of Chrome from Target and both had an auto. I wouldn't say that is not the norm for blasters though.

    Am always looking for Mizzou players! Even Michael Egnew.
    Vikings, Kurt Warner and Dan Marino are an option as well!

    Yea take the money you were going to use and buy Chrome blasters and rack packs. No guarenteed hits but I've had so much better success with those then I did any hobby boxes I've bought. lol

    I'm a big Chrome guy, so I always suggest Chrome when people ask.

    A lot of numbered refractors you will pull from Chrome, not even considered "hits" will sell or trade for more than junky game used/relic cards from other products. Not to mention that if you do pull an auto, it's likely to be on-card. If you go the hobby box route, you're guaranteed an auto.

    I opened 72 packs of Chrome retail this year and ended up with 2 autos, 3 camo refractors, 3 pink, 1 purple, 2 black and 1 blue (I think that was it...10 total anyway). Great fun to open.

    You gonna make me buy some Topps Chrome. What I miss in Topps base is on-card signature. Thanks.
