  • Question for collectors of autographed cards

    Is a autograph that runs off of a sticker considered less desirable to you ? If you ended up with one from say Ebay where a stock photo is posted and multiple cards are available would you ask for a return and refund ? Just wondering others opinions

    I think that if the stock photo showed the auto completely within the borders of the sticker - then yes I would try to get it exchanged.

    There are some player autos that I have seen that have letter tops clipped due to the flair of the signer.

    To answer your question - Clipped autos are not necessarily less desirable to me. But I would tend to look at other autos by the same person to judge the availability of non-clipped examples.

    Let's face it signing stickers on a sheet or a roll has got to be more tedious than signing a stack of cards...little stickers, big hands and avoiding smearing of autos - - - just the thought makes my hands cramp.

        I asked the seller for a partial refund and he was nice about it -- the signer Cameron Sutton does appear to have quite a few clipped autos so far -- thanks for your insight

            thats why i try to avoid sticker autos if its possible,depending on the player im after,if its for a draft pick,then id bite the bullet,as that might be the only type of auto for said player available
