New York Yankees fans have plenty to 👎 about this season — and Steiner Sports is on it.
The New Rochelle, N.Y.-based company revealed on Wednesday that it’s offering three “Thumbs Down” autographed baseballs to go with the team’s sarcastic trend that has it pushing toward a possible World Series appearance.

To say that the baseball card landscape has changed in the last decade might be an understatement, but there’s been one prospecting brand that has delivered many of the biggest names early and often and delivered a good amount of ink, too, thanks to Hot Boxes.
It’s packed a number of surprise inclusions, a tremendous rainbow of serial-numbered parallel autos and even some pretty good bargains as many collectors have their established habits elsewhere. In recent years, it’s also given us a teaser of younger USA Baseball players, too.
This mainstay — and arguably a simultaneous sleeper — is Elite Extra Edition.
