SPX isnt a bad box, but pricey. The more and more I see icons I'm tempted to buy a box!

I've had nothing but good luck with Icons. Nice to get a couple lettermen patches on top of your 3 guaranteed hits. Makes you feel like you're getting more for your money hah.

Sage Autograph if you don't mind the fact that's its Sage. 12 autographs per box for less then 100 bucks (less then 90 now I think).

Avoid SAGE and Finest. Chrome is a big hit for $60 or less and Absolute Memorobilia has very nice looking cards but a little more $$. My Threads experience this year was bad but at least they are cheap. Good luck either way

I like Playoff Contenders !!! They will have the late season player or rookie autos in their set.

Icons is new this year. Good mix of rookies and vets. Big part to it is the 2 letterman per box (asst numbering with some being auto'd)

Icons is a decent break but most of the letterman don't sell as well as you would think...unless you get an auto'd version. The Mccain/Obama and Favre letterman redemptions are still selling at decent prices. The low #'d die cut inserts sold real well out of the gate.

Absolute Memorobilia. By far the best boxes I've opened this year.

My favorite is certified, there is a wide range of stuff you can get and it's a pretty decent price.
