Mine would have to be Elite 12-13

It's Mid end, you can buy a box for around or under $100. It has 20 packs with 6 cards in each. So it's enough if you want to start collecting a base set yet there's not tonnes of cards to sort through such as a Hobby box of Hoops 13-14 which has 500 cards. The foil base cards look really good, probably the best base card design I've seen. There are some good inserts and some sweet autos with Rookie Inscriptions on a acetate, clear card. The on card autos like below which I just pulled look especially sweet.

I also like how the Throwback Threads is just based on the legends and is a patch/jersey card.

At the moment I like Intrigue because it's had a price drop to just over $100 and I've had pretty good luck with it so far. A few really nice low numbered patches so far. It's been the only product i've busted lately that has actually paid for itself. I can't afford the really high end stuff.

Nice dude, Intrigue looks sweet.

I hear ya with the high end stuff. Buying a box recently of Gold 12-13 was expensive for me but I can't afford the high end stuff like Immaculate and Exquisite either.

Busting mid/high end products doesnt really make sense right now, so for me its all about the cheap sub $50 products. My favourite would have to be Innovation since the chances of hitting a nice auto is the same as 100+ products, but the set does have a lot of nice designs:

I busted a half case of elite back in May and have the base set completed now. My Favourite would still have to be 12-13 select. The prizm refractors really make the cards pop, then add the green and gold parallels and you got some big bucks in there. I'm currently working on completing the In Flight Selections(Prizm's) insert set #/25 from it... 11 down, 14 to go!

I love Crusade, simple cars with a nice white background and a great selection of legends and current player in the sub sets
