Default High End Box to Open?

I know everyone says singles, and I know more than likely I won't break even. However for the thrill iIm my 1st box or 2 of high end. I was wondering what you guys would recommend as the less risky to go for? Noir, NT, Immac?

My vote is NT because you get more cards per box than Immaculate and the RPA sells better.

Wait for this years NT and bust it, won’t be out until the summer tho. Probably best to preorder it. Hopefully you get an RPA.

I’ll take immaculate over NT or flawless. NT still has too many sticker autos but from what I’ve seen most of the autos from immaculate are on card and I don’t buy the hype of flawless with gems or whatever it is included on my cards. For that price I want on card autos with sweet patches or better

If you just wanna dip your toe in and get the feel of opening high end i'd suggest 16-17 Collegiate Basketball. It's pretty cheap and at current prices can be a fun break. $144 box

If college doesn't do it for you i'd go Noir or Impeccable. To me the odds are a bit better of getting a nice card.

Thanks for the input! Whats National Treasures presale price per box normally? I see even 2016/17 is above 700 with the bad rookie class

National Treasures ,but be prepared for weak patches unless Panini has a trick up their sleeve.

I don't have any inside information on this but I'd guess May. You've got Select coming out in March and then Optic in April. Last year NT came out at the first of May.
