    Thoughts on autographed baseballs?

    Came across this. Pretty interesting because it was signed Devin's rookie year and has the topps hologram. They are limited to around 100 also. I'm not sure what I think.

    That is odd. I would rather have his auto on a basketball, then a baseball. Because, afterall, he is a basketball player not a baseball player.

    I don't like it. I was going to pick up a box of 06-07 sweet shot basketball, but the hit is signed on a baseball. It's a little weird. No thanks.

    I think it is a cool idea, makes a collector's item. It depends from the standpoint of the person who's collecting the player, I think.

    If you are not sure, i would not spend the money on it. Probably plenty of other items you could buy that you would be more comfortable with

    I saw him at a Brewers/Astros game in beer town a few years back.
    We was signing some baseball, when all of a sudden a lady come up to him
    and said stop just as he was going to sign one for me. I think it was his handler
    or someone, because she said you can't do that. Might have been some contractual thing.
    I think it is ok for another sport player to sign a baseball.

    i think the sweet spot baseball autos are really cool...but that is coming from a baseball card collector who played baseball and basketball in college. I feel like it's just kinda a cool little oddball thing as someone mentioned.

    I say no to the ball and I also say no to the sweet spot autos of basketball players.I have seen a few of these and always felt it was kinda unnecessary. Why not just include a piece of basketball leather in the card?I don't think I would like it very much if the baseball sweetspot autos were on a basketball surface.Or a football surface either.The sport should eb on the designated ball for that sport.

    But to each their own I suppose.

    The only one that ever made any sense was the Jordan.
