    I would have sent something like these in if I knew the sticker auto was going to be such a hang-up for people (Soler /99, Polanco /100):

    Without bias, I choose the Swihart over the Tejada. If anyone wants a scan of the back, I can take one and post it.

    We will be doing more rounds on autos for sure. Stickers are a reality in the hobby. FWIW all cards are submitted before I publish anything so no one (other than me) knows what people have sent in. (And, I pick my card before I open the tournament for submissions.) Anyway, as said before, I went with Blake b/c I like the pose and coloring. Too each their own. Just keep the subs coming in for other tournaments!

    I love blue refractors truly but on card always trumps stickers like a lot of folks.

    Tejada for me.

    I vote Tejada. It's kind of hard to find an older veteran auto /100. Usually they are lower serial numbered, or really high numbered in the cases of the first auto cards. I had a feeling newer rookie autos would dominate this bracket. I'm not a sticker hater, so that didn't really play into it. The Donruss Signature Series cards were kind of a historic set too - first per pack auto.

    No brainer, Tejeda for the win.

    Chrome is bad enough then they add a sticker to the card

    Tejada. Anything /100 or less from the '90's deserves a boost, plus a clean auto that is on card certainly helps.

    I can't see the pics (can in the bracket, but not as separate), just an FYI if others are having trouble seeing.

    Although I have much higher end autos I could have chosen for this bracket, I chose to use my 2005 Upper Deck Ultimate Bob Gibson/Lou Brock Signs of October on card Autograph 55/100 for a few reasons:

    They both have naturally beautiful autographs and seeing them on the same card makes them look even better.

    Gibson is seen with his game face sweaty look and Brock simply looks natural with the bat on his shoulder.

    Because this is the Signs of October set it celebrates their World Series victories and success going over the years of 1964, 1967 and 1968.

    Gibson was the MVP for the 1964 and 1967 World Series as well as NL MVP in 1967. Highlights also include his famous 17Ks against the Dodgers in game 1 of the 1967 W.S. And he won the Cy Young in 1968 as well. He pitched a total of 9 games with 7 of those being wins. I could go on and on about his incredible stats but will stop short there.

    Lou Brock in the World Series alone hit .391 with 34 hits including 4 HRs and 13 RBIs in all three series. To save space I will stop short there as well.

    To me this is a beautiful card with some history behind it. Many players don't take the time to sign as these two did and although this isn't the highest value card it speaks volumes from both a hobby standpoint and a history of baseball standpoint.

    Tough decision on this one. I'm going to vote for the dual. Beautiful card, beautiful signatures and an iconic set. Very close call, this will be a good matchup

    Love Brock, love Gibson , love the on card. But love the 1996 Leaf Sig set as one I the best there is, so I'll say Jeter on this one.
