I disagree that is the position people are taking here. No one expects the artist's best effort on every sketch.
And to use your analogy, if I did the equivalent of this sketch in my job, I'd expect to get chewed out for it. Which I think is sort of what is going on here.
Topps does have some blame, but so do the artists. If they didn't produce the sketches like this one to begin with, they would not get into the packs.
I don't understand why there can't be more than one point of failure that allowed this sketch to get packed out.
