Razor Cut Signature Edition 2008
Nobody here seems to have opened any of this. With all the controversy of this product, I thought I'd try a couple anyway.

I snagged a couple decent ones:

The Celtics Great, Bob Cousy and the equally wonderful Bob Barker!!!

Isn't that like $2000 per pack, 1 card per pack!?!?!?

It's between $100-$120 a box from what I have seen.Still pretty expensive for one card.

The $2000 a pack set is not out yet. With that you are guaranteed a cut or dual cut from a former president of the united states.

I like the concept but not the execution. They should have incorporated the cut into a card like Donruss did with Celebrity Cuts. I'm glad you posted pictures as I had no idea this was just slabbed signatures.

I agree, these are more like large documents with a cardboard border around them, I'm not sure I would like them as cards, in the traditional sense.

These really aren't that much different from any of the other cut autographs that have been created over the years. Cut autographs are essentially as you described, documents (either a sticker or some piece of paper media, slabbed in a card size format.

I think these are very neat. There's a variety of media pieces that these are coming from (checks, photos, cards, ticket stubs, etc...), so most cards will be very unique. I think they look pretty good.

Most of the cut signature cards I've seen from other companies (Donruss, Rittenhouse) at least have a picture of the signee on the card somewhere. That's what I don't like about these cards, no image of the signer.

I don't think anybody has put out more cut signature cards than Upper Deck and most of theirs do not have pictures on them. Look up 'mystery cut auto*' in the search field of that auction site and you'll see tonnes of cut signature cards selling for several hundred dollars. So I think photoless cut cards are more popular than most people think.
