Sorry to those who were looking forward to a video box break, it’s been canceled. Trust me when I tell you that not much was missed. Topps Co-Signers was the first box I opened in 2007 after a 10-year absence and much like last year’s box, this one was also a dud. Don’t get me wrong, the cards are beautiful and sometimes the sticker autographs work but the player checklist is a little weak yet again.
Design – B
This year’s Co-Signers’ design I believe is a step back from 2007 but like I said earlier, the sticker autographs are not the worst-looking cards I have seen. The parallels (12 per box) are thick, colorful, and provide much needed eye candy.
Price – A+
I am sorry but for $100 you get 12 #’d parallels, including one #’d to 25 and 4 autographs (one is a dual). You also get some nice-looking cards of all your favorite players. If this box was priced at $80 it would be the product of the year!
Pulls – C
Okay, got most of the stars in the base set and the parallels were of decent players but the three autographs were pretty lousy, again. Bronson’s auto’s consistently sell for under $10, Freddy Sanchez is, well…Freddy Sanchez, and I have no idea who the boxer is but he is 26-0 so maybe there is a nice pricey card in the making, but I doubt it.
Overall – B-
Well, it is an improvement over last year’s product but not by much. If this box ever goes for under $90 I will be first in line for a second and maybe even third box but in the meantime I will save my pennies for a late box of ’08 Topps Finest.
