    Worst card company ideas

    What are some of the worst ideas thought up by the companies?

    Here's a few of mine:

    Topps Co Signers boxing autos.
    This product was LOADED with common boxing autos......a Baseball product.....with boxing autos.

    Allen & Ginter 1/1 hidden in the box lid.
    Truly, the most epic fail and if it wasn't for Brent and becca tweet, the hobby wouldn't have known for nearly a week.

    Fleer Ultra going high end to like $20 a pack in the mid 2000s.

    Upper Deck Game Dated Moments.
    Sure, why not use the exact same words on the base cards and totally confuse collectors.

    Fractal Matrix. Seriously, I STILL don't understand it fully.

    I'll never have a complete 2013 A&G run because of that stupid box lid thing. Frank is long gone I'm sure.

    1) Topps Monopoly.

    2) Topps Monopoly.

    3) Topps Monopoly.

    4) Pacific Card Supials.

    5) Redemptions the company has no interest to fulfill.

    6) Redemptions the company has no ability to fulfill.

    7) Redemptions that expire.

    8) Don West.

    9) Vintagesnowmobiles.

    10) Vegas Dave.

    8-10 aren't really card company ideas, but they would not exist without card companies

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.
