While not every sketch will be a full color detailed masterpiece there should be some minimal level of quality.
This was bad for everyone, except TOPPS. Collectors that ordered at full price before knowing how bad it would be, sellers that were stuck with cases that were rapidly plummeting in value.

There is no reasonable defense for a set like this, cases were like $360 or so (8 box cases) and it was a pathetic effort from TOPPS as a pure cash grab.
you are talking about the set with the best nonsports autograph line-up in existence. anyways you should be mad at trading card company for putting out the product if you dont like what comes in it, and not the artist.
