I haven't bought any of these, but I looked through the links for what seems appealing. The Baylor Briefs one is by far your best bet.

 

TheForensicFile one looks overpriced for what it says it includes, but idk.

The BigSkyDebate one says it has Richard Nixon Negatives? What does that even mean? I would not recommend.

West Coast Publishing looks like decent stuff, but 250 is a lot and it's the same kind of evidence you'd get out of OpenEv. They do have a sample on that site if you wanna check it out.

The Paradigm Debate looks good since it sells it in separate files. It might be a good idea to grab some of those Ks DAs, or CPs since they would be applicable year-round and an interesting Aff file if you want to.

I would totally get the Baylor Briefs ones. 10 Affs with case Negs, 7 disads. 1500 cards for 35 bucks isn't too shabby if you're going to be buying.

Then there's the Kritik Killer and the Negative casebooks. I definitely think those are your best bet.

Baylor has some great stuff that they give out at the end of each year. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend buying evidence useless you know the company through someone else or personally: The evidence might be in common circulation or related to some completely different topic.

I'd probably wait to buy until camp ev comes out. 

 

That "really cool and unique" aff you spent money on thinking that nobody would have answers to it, might very well be the most common aff on open ev.
