    My vote was yes, as I look at the chance to get an autograph that I might not otherwise be able to get for my collection. Prefer on card, but "You Can't Always Get What You Want" (Rolling Stones taught me that many years ago)

    Not a fan of stickers in the first but I look at two things 1 if they truly want to be part of the set they will sign the card and 2 sticker Autos means more Autos they may be able to just take a sheet of stickers and go with it on card means more time which usually means less Autos

    I'd have to see the design to decide. In general, I am less of a fan of stickers, but they can serve a purpose, when needed. I guess if manufacturers had foreseen the need/acceptance/demand and stocked up on signatures of aging greats, they could have included them in sets for years to come. That might not have been a bad idea for fans of those players, but not they way they did Musial! On card autographs will almost always, if not always, look better though.

    Since this is such an old thread, I'll just say that fans of "anything" is a stupid idea for a set in my opinion. Those "fans of the game" cards they did in baseball back in the 2000s, thought the same about those. If that is the only way to get a signature, then I guess we do what we need to do to fill a gap, but I'd rather see that person highlighted on their own. I could care less if they are fans of Ali, Rocky or The Rock!

    On a somewhat unrelated subject, I wish someone would have done an extensive autograph issue from Magnum PI. I am going back and trying to find signatures of many of the key and reoccurring characters and many are unusually hard, although several were not big name stars and a few died younger.

    Yea man. Do the sticker route. I don't mind them anyways, but to improve the auto checklist, its a slam dunk.

    By a spammer, no less. That thing's signature is all about stickers and nameplates.

    After 7 years of meditating under a tree I decided to vote no. Only 1 more vote and we are tied! He will be forced to go out and burn all the sticker autos!?!

    The topic is still relevant, even if the thread was old. Is it a bad thing to get people talking about a subject, even if the original thread is old?
