Out of those 3, I would go with SP Authentic. Anthology was meh and contenders is a bunch of autos with about 2 decent stars. $80? I'd go with singles on feeBay.
My list;

12-13 Certified
11-12 Certified
11-12 Donruss Elite
11-12 Limited
11-12 Parkhurst
11-12 Ultimate, if you are willing to toss in another 5 bucks total
11-12 Spx
10-11 Luxury Suite

Of those listed above ^.... Personally would go with 10-11 Luxury Suite, 11-12 Limited or 11-12 Certified. Ultimate if you want to throw in couple extra dollars.
