2010 Razor Cut Signature Edition

Razor Collectibles is coming pretty serious with another release in August 2010 Cut Signature Edition. Like the 2010 Razor Sports Icons, the Cut Signature Edition will include amazing cut signatures but this time the focus is on celebrities.

Scheduled Release Date: July 2010
Box Configuration: 1 card per pack, 1 pack per box
SRP: $60 per pack/box

Box Break:
1 Cut Signature per pack

About 2 weeks ago I posted a preview of the 2010 Razor Sports Icons set scheduled to be released next month. I really liked the set; it included a huge checklist including some very limited signatures. Well, I actually feel that the 2010 Cut Signature release tops the Sports Icons set. Of course there are differences with Sports Icons being sports related and Cut Signature Edition focusing on famous personalities like celebrities and politicians.

This an amazing checklist with well over 600 current, retired and deceased personalities from many walks of life including politicians, actors, sports heroes and musicians. Each card is limited with many signatures limited to only 1 with the highest numbered to #/30 and the multi-signature cards limited to #/11 or less. With only 299 cases produced, there are 12 boxes per case and that means there are only 3,588 total cards in the seriously limited set.

The checklist includes some amazing autographs like Abraham Lincoln (Above Left), Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Lindberg, Bernie Mac, Michael Landon, Snoop Dogg, Mark Twain (Above Right) and Will Smith. The multi-signature cards have some expected matches like Cheech/Chong and Jimmy Carter/Walter Mondale but Razor obviously went out of the way to create some multi-signature cards that many would not expect to ever see like George H.W. Bush/Saddam Hussein. One of the cards I find more humorous is the Dick York/Dick Sargent multi-signature card. The ultimate pulls in the set, besides Abraham Lincoln, would be the quad-signature containing all 4 members of the Sex Pistols (Rotten, Vicious, Jones & Cook) or the quad-signature containing all 4 members of Queen (Mercury, May, Taylor & Deacon).

One suggestion I would make would be to include the name of the personality on the front of the card because some of the autographs can be difficult to decipher without checking the back.

My Thoughts:
This is a set that I definitely will hunt down. At $60 a box you have the chance to pull an amazing signature, the checklist justifies the cost. Like I said with the previous post, I am normally not a fan of cut signature unless it is from a deceased personality or one unable to still sign but I will overlook that with this set because the checklist is so amazing.
