Default Worst Card Set over the last five years?

What do you think has been the worst card set recently, for design and value. Mine would be Topps Lineage.

Chicle make the conversation? 1 and done. I personally didn't think it was THAT bad but seems to have been a failed product

It would be foolish not to include Upper Deck's "2012 SP Signature Edition", the largest sticker dump in history.

2008 Upper Deck Documentary was the worst product I've ever seen. You can buy full hobby boxes for $15. That's how bad it is.

This also has my vote - just a worthless product.

Another vote for 2012 SP. Yet I've still picked up a couple cheap boxes here and there. One earned me a Griffey Jr. auto. The other had a bunch of washed out players who MIGHT have had a cup of coffee at the show.

A lot of Panini sets tie for 2nd.

My one box of Lineage from Cyber Monday got me a McCutchen auto. Plus I like the set well enough on it's own.

The cut of 2010 Topps Chrome. Brutal!

Things like Razor, Leaf and Sportkings don't count. They aren't real cards!

It's not like I should put "Cards I made for my 5 year old nephew" as one of the worst card sets!

Agreed with these, and anything Panini baseball is pretty much worthless and designs are pretty bad, and upper deck is a joke making things like sp signature, topps has some bad ones to, bowman sterling is overpriced ugly garbage, topps tier one is a $100 box that should be $25 bucks, topps pro debut is pretty ugly, topps unique was a pretty bad product price and design wise, triple threads is usually pretty ugly and very overpriced, chicle is a pretty bad product design and price wise, t206 was a pretty ugly card,

Topps does put out some nice ones to though, I think Museum even though overpriced is a really sharp set, Topps Archives at closeout prices is a awesome set, Heritage and Gypsy Queen are both sharp looking sets and are reasonably priced, Tribute and Five Star are very nice just overpriced if it was around $150 to $175 for tribute and around $225 for five star that would be great, and you can never go wrong with base topps always a nice product, if they would just put on card autographs back into it and get rid of the stickers it would be a homerun!!

Design - hands down 2012 UD Signature

Value - Tie between 2013 Museum Collection and 2013 Tier One

Personally from the breaks I've seen and the one box I did this year, worst product for the price point seems to be 2013 Topps Five Star. I saw a case get broken this weekend and just when you thought you had seen the worst box ever, the next box in the case took that crown. If Topps ever puts out another high-end set with autographs numbered over 300 I'll be avoiding it like the plague.

Stupid comment.

Of course they are real cards, and that is a fact.

Funny thing is, other manufacturers were mentioned in this thread before these three.

2008 Upper Deck X

These cards sell well, but they were designed for kids.

Do kids like cruddy card designs & Cruddy parallel sets with cheesy jersey swatches?

My other least favorite set is 2008 Topps Cosigners.

Badly designed sticker autos, most of the times it was a high numbered dual of a 2 scrubs. Only 2 autos/box.

2012 Upper Deck SP Stickerdump. I'd rather buy signed index cards.
