Hottest Unopened Sports Card Boxes on eBay

Times have changed since kids walked to the corner store and grabbed a pack off the shelf, knowing there would be only one brand of trading cards to choose from.  These days, you can expect more than 15 different products for each sport issued throughout the year by the manufacturers.  The most watched sports card boxes can change at a 2014 Bowman Football boxmoment’s notice as word spreads about which products are offering the best cards for the money.

Sometimes it’s the $300-500 per pack boxes that rank among the hottest trading cards, but other times collectors gravitate toward products they can afford that still surrender a few solid hits or have a great autograph checklist.  The annual Topps baseball flagship sets are always popular, just as they’ve been since 1952.  However, some newer programs like Panini Immaculate Basketball or Upper Deck The Cup Hockey are in the watchful eyes of collectors who like to chase autographed patch cards and are willing to spend good money to do it.

However, the exploding vintage unopened market means old, unopened boxes are hot, too.
