Just out of curiosity, which hobby box brand / sub- brand do you all prefer that has the biggest bang for your buck? I am looking to resell, eventually, any hits i get. Whats the best value in your opinion?

None. Buying boxes to resell the hits is a gamble and like gambling usually the house wins. There is no box that guarantees you are going to get your money back, sometimes you will, most of the other times you won't. Some products offer a better chance, but still there is no guarantee. I haven't bought any football recently, so I will defer to those who have as to which boxes have been better for this year's rookies or last year's.

As Brian said it is a gamble and getting your money back is rare, even more so in the long run you pretty much won't break even or even close to it. It is a Hobby, much better ways to invest your money if you looking for a return on investment. Also a very volatile Hobby at that as values can change in a hurry, haven't busted much Football myself either in long time, maybe someone here can give you ones they like. But like everything else in the world there are different points of view as to each their own, hence why there is so many different products and price ranges.
