I have my sql as below:

SELECT
Case
When Product_ID = 'A' Then 'Active'
When Product_ID = 'B' Then 'Obselete'
End As Description
Case
When Product_ID = 'A' Then 'Good'
When Product_ID = 'B' Then 'Bad'
End As Condition
FROM Table_A


Since the two Case condition is the same, is there possible to make it into one?

Eg. Case When Product_ID = 'A' THEN 'Active' As Description, 'Good' As Condition

Nope. CASE is not a control flow statement but its just a conditional expression.
if you really need to do it you need this

SELECT 'Active' AS Description,'Good' AS Condition
FROM Table_A
WHERE Product_ID = 'A'
UNION ALL
SELECT 'Obselete','Bad'
FROM Table_A
WHERE Product_ID = 'B'
