In this particular box, I didn't have favorites, therefore my 5 cards from the box are all cards of players showing you their ass. I feel like this is what Topps did to me so it's payback. On that note, is there a set out there that features so many pictures of players asses as they're batting and pitching? Let me know so I can stay away from that as well.

THE BOX BREAK
GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR?
Score: 1 In no way, shape, or form is this box worth what you'll pay. In the event that you find a box for $10, let me know. I'll call you a moron for buying it. Obviously, reviews are personal opinion. You can attempt to be as professional as possible but it all boils down to "was it worth it?" In my review, in my opinion, the answer is no. The base set is hideous, the parallels are as confusing as they come, and the sticker autos don't look good on this product. Would my opinion be different if I had pulled some high value cards? Probably not. With the exception of pulling something that I could sell to get my money back, the value of this box is not worth the price. I'll be posting the entire contents to eBay soon. I'll update with what was cleared selling off the pieces.
HITS WORTH THE HYPE?
Score: 1 I told you, I'm trying to be honest. The answer is no. Not in my box anyway. Last year I pulled an astronaut auto that cleared about $75 on NAXCOM. This year, nothing. Maybe you'll buy a box and hit the lottery. I'll be holding my breath.
CLASSIC OR EASILY FORGOTTEN?
Score: 1The set does nothing that last year's set didn't do. The base design is not much different, positive or negative. The parallels are what drive this product into the ground. It's one thing to have 10 variations of a card in a set. It's another to try to figure out which variation you have. With the exception of Moments and Milestones, I don't think there is a more frustrating variation lineup in any product around. Co-Signers will be fade into obscurity like Stars, Laser, and Gallery.
Score: 1 Not in a million years.
Score: 1 out of 5What can I say that hasn't already been said? Mindless variations, weak base design, poor collation of inserts, and lackluster autographs make this a horrible set. Buy a box if you want, you might prove me wrong. I can't justify it and I'll be forced to say I told you so if your box does what mine did. Stay away from Co-Signers. It is a waste of your money.
I suppose my viewpoint would change somewhat if Topps didn't charge so much for this product. I guess all those Boxer Autos were expensive to acquire.
Hope you guys enjoyed it. I appreciate your feedback on the product and look forward to bringing you more of my reviews in the future.
Points are determined on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 5 being the highest.) The average of the four categories will be the overall score.
