They really don't get it. What I especially can't stand is pulling sticker autos of bench players out of products. I'd be just as happy not pulling any auto, paying a little less and possibly having the company spend more time focusing on getting those cards hard signed.
You HAVE to love how the twitpic ending for the one picture is /YUCKK
Honestly I think they purposely make certain products have sticker autos even though they know that people can't stand them. They do this so that products without the sticker auto have added value because they are rare. Also, there are some card stocks where the sharpie ink doesn't properly absorb, so a stick becomes necessary.
I'd believe that if Topps actually included on-card autographs in their higher end products, but that's usually all stickers as well.
I used to not care if it was a sticker or not... Now I don't really care either way as it's not my bag anymore, but.. I want on card if I decide to return to that part of collecting. Just like jerseys/bats/gloves/et al MUST be game used and guaranteed as such... Unlike Topps' new Tribute faux pas.Makes going after older product (or other companies like ITG) a lot easier for me. Back then stuff was more often hard signed, and in the case of GU, some cards SHOWED the jersey/bat/etc that it came from.
