2012 UD Signature is complete trash. But its influence has turned super fans of cards into garage staffed card companies with that trash like Hits out there.

Lineage gives you 2 autos and a relic, with a strong chance that at least one of the autos is someone from the '52 Topps set (and on-card) plus a boxtopper and several popular insert sets. It's a good break at half of original retail price.
SP Stickerdump doesn't sell at 25% of original retail price, because all the cards are is stickers without pictures.

Topps T-206 in 2010 was so bad.

Off centered cuts, awful artwork terrible mini inserts and really bad photography, all around junk.

I must be in the minority of people who liked 2012 SP Signature. Only when the price was below $90 though. I was impressed that UD could at least get Bryce Harper to sign his full name and with no streaking like on most of the Topps autos where he just does initials. Also liked the super low number WS tribute cards from SP Signature as they included some of my favourite blue jays from the 92-93 seasons, though I wasn't lucky enough to pull any.

SP signature is just disgusting. Hard to look at. I promised myself two things, that as long as I collect I will never buy an SP signature card, or an Arod auto/relic.

Badly designed sticker autos, most of the times it was a high numbered dual of a 2 scrubs. Only 2 autos/box.
yeah these two sets are really bad, cosigners is really ugly, topps milestones is another bad one they made 1/1 cards worthless in that set.

I agree was a bit stunned the OP thought it was easiest their worst card set. I'd put Lineage in my top 5 from the last few years of boxes I wouldn't mind buying again and again

My bottom 5 lowlights:

1) 2012 SP Signature Edition: if UD just sold the stickers, I could stick 'em on an 8x10 photo and not be embarrassed to display it. Heck, I could stick 'em on an ugly 1981 Fleer card, and it would still look better, 'cause at least there's a picture of somebody on it.

2) 2008 UD Documentary: Topps Total idea to a ridiculous extreme. Every time I saw someone open a pack, I kept thinking of the Simpsons episode where Bart picks a grape and drops it in a bucket, it pans out to show the whole vineyard, and the French guy tells him, "now do that a MILLION more times!" Anyone ever crazy enough to complete the entire gold parallel set?

3) 2010 Topps Chrome: ))))))))))at least all the cards bend in the same direction))))))))

4) 2013 Topps Tier One: Topps is great with magic. Abracadabra, they can turn your $100 bill into 3 99-cent cards, just like that!

5) 2013 Topps Tribute World Baseball Classic Edition: a super-premium product with a super-premium price, and you fill it with international scrubs? Yuck.

Sweet Ryan auto, super rare. I pulled the same thing earlier in the year when I bought 3 packs from my LCS. Here's what it'll look like in case you're wondering:

True, but I have had some amazing hits out of Lineage - for the price it is a crazy good break.

Lineage does have some crappy autos, but there are some great autos too.

I think the 1952 reprint auto set may be the greatest under-appreciated set in the last 10 years. It really is awesome.
