Default Your choice for Worst Product of the Year

You can use whatever reasoning you want. Mine is Radiance. Total crap IMO. Too high a price point. A hodgepodge of leftovers. Sticker graphs. Another high-end UD basketball product that doesn't work. Second place, which I think will be first on many lists, is Topps Signature. I had high hopes for this stuff, and it would have been better if they hadn't numbered everything. Still, it was nice to get some oldtimers autos for a reasonable price.

For those of you that have been posting Radiance and Ultimate, have you even opened any of this product?

I have opened every product this year from both Upper Deck and Topps. I can honestly say that Topps Signature is the worst product!

The re-sell value on the cards is terrible and the autographed acrds are numbered in the 5000's.

For those that think Ultimate or Radiance is the worst product please open a few cases or buy a few singles before you make your judgement.

Sounds as if you're judging them before you "know" if they opened any. Perhaps they have opened as much as you, and still think the UD products are worse.

Just a thought.

Trust me, most of them have not opened as much as me, and I highly doubt they have spent as much on singles as i have.

There isnt a Topps product in the history of Topps that could compete with this years Ultimate Collection.

Look at some of these singles....and remember they were pulled by somebody, including a few by myself







Three cards of players that you will NEVER find in a Topps product!

Still, out of 100s of cases busted very very few got anything that was even considered good.

Honestly for the price it sucks

That Lebron is sick but still man, price doesnt justify.

I bet if you were to bust another case of Ultimate you would understand hehe

They loaded the product with tooo many multiple patches etc, the cards looks too crammed

Yah, I know what you are saying, a bad case here and there sucks, but I paid the same price for my Ultimate case as I did the Topps Signature case.

The entire Signature case did not have a re-sell value of more than $150 and I pulled two Bill Russell auto and three Dwight Howard autos. My Ultimate case I had five cards that I sold for $150+ each!

I have to agree with several others. Topps Signature was horrid with massive amounts of multiple autos (6000+ print run?). This reminds me of the flood years when they made inserts numbered to 10000!

At least with ultimate theres a chance for a ridiculously nice card. Topps signature, not so much.

If all you care about is resale, then of course Topps Signature would suck. But who says everyone here is a dealer or in it "for the money" to which, I once again will say, there are better ways to make money than selling cards!

I wouldn't call the Rodman auto, Baylor auto and Pierce auto I got out of a $85 box a waste of money. But I'd sure be pissed to spend that same $85 on a PACK of Radiance and get manybe one of those three guys above, more likely some crapbag rookie. And I won't bash Ultimate until I try some.

They limit Ultimate hocket b/c it does not have as many collectors, the base are not numbered to /499 like basketball.
