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 and proud Thunder fan ever since they came close to my area 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!
