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.

7) Redemptions that expire.

8) Don West.

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

Dare to Tear cards (Zenith oversized cards with cards inside)

Cards in packages of hot dogs and beef jerky touching the meat

Redemption cards

Cards issued by one company, with cut autos signed on cards from a different company

Draw your own sketch cards

Stupid Allen & Ginter relics of mythical creatures

Dog paw print cards

Bowman Chrome deciding we needed several variants of colors, backgrounds, and SP auto's..

Topps Now and their creation of a daily card for when a player does something.. Maybe they will have a team card for when there is a rainout.. ::facepalm::

Wrong? Wrong? I'm not wrong you're wwwrrrooong! In fact, you're fired. You're the puppet!

I know a lot about wind.

Puerto Rico is an island surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water.
Bigly water. Dangerous stuff really. I think you can’t drink it if I understand correctly. Too much sodium
