2008-09 Topps Signature
Had an Amazon gift card, so got a box of Topps Signature.
Going in, I knew that I was at least getting one of their "Group A" signatures, so there was about an 80% chance I was getting something super-sweet...I wouldn't have been so stoked with a Vince Carter, Brandon Roy, or OJ Mayo...but a chance at a Bill Russell, Shaq, or Larry Bird? Count me in.
It was heavy on vet & retired player autos, which I love
So, eight packs, eight autos (any marks are from scanner), and the parallels are pretty sweet. Got 6 red and two black auto facsimiles (highlights were a Bill Russell black and the Westbrook red RC below), a few rookies, and the below spoils:
Derrick Rose RC #1608/2325:
Russell Westbrook RC red parallel #446/869:
Jo Jo White #408/989
Maurice Lucas #510/999
Nick Young #4030/6225
Reggie Theus #446/940
Ricky Pierce #670/999
Spencer Hawes #756/999
My Group A auto was a home run, except that I hit two Group A autos! I was stoked with the first, but the second was huge.
Dwyane Wade #223/649
Jerry West #619/649

Great pulls! This set was widely panned when it came out, but it sure seems a lot better now compared to Panini's overindulgent rookie autograph releases these days.SW MO resident/proud Thunder fan since they came close to me in '08!

Excellent break, Wade/West Autos plus Rose and Westbrook RCs! I think the 2 RCs are better than my entire box when I broke this stuff!
-BenCollecting LeBron James, ANYTHING and EVERTYTHING. Emphasis on RCs!
Also LF: Irving, Varejao, Ilgauskas, Gibson, Waiters, Zeller and Thompson in that order.
I trade by BDV (Ben Denham Value). I will use BV and SV as a starting point, but in the end it is all about what it is worth to me!
