    Need help deciding what box to get...

    I'm looking to buy of box of '06. I think I've narrowed it down to one of these:

    Playoff Contenders
    SP Authentic
    Hot Prospects

    Other than what I've read in Beckett, I haven't paid too much attention to what's out there. Anyone have any ideas on any of those three? Anyone have any luck with them? Any help is appreciated.

    out of those, id choose contenders because of the 4 autos. but i havent opened any to tell, just seen breaks on here. this is what i have learned about them from watching:

    contenders: usually at lest one good guy, but always the possibility of pulling no-namers

    sp authentic: if you dont hit the auto/patch it sucks, get some no-name regular autos

    hot-prospects- havent seen any breaks of this, but dont you get one rookie auto materials card per box? that seems nice.

    but these are just what i have seen, id say its between hp and contenders.
