Adding boxers to their ’08 Co-Signers product was a great way to attract fans of the endangered sport (like me!) but looking at some of the cards already popping up on eBay, it’s clear they took the cheapskate route. Joan Guzman? Chad Dawson? Andre Ward? Fine, you included Larry Holmes but what about today’s stars? Wladimir Klitschko is unstopable at Heavyweight, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the pound for pound best fighter in the world, Miguel Cotto is an undefeated menace, and what about the most popular boxer since Muhammad Ali, “Iron” Mike Tyson?
If you are going to include boxing with your product, why not do it right instead of half-assin’ it once again? Mike Tyson is poor & lonely, and putting in autographs of the youngest Heavyweight champion of all-time could not only help your product but would have possibly revived Mike Tyson’s name in the sport he carried and ultimately destroyed in 1997 when he bit off Evander Holyfield’s ear.
This is what Mike Tyson looks like without boxing. How much could it have possibly cost to get him to sign 300 Topps stickers?
