    I don't mind sticker autos aesthetically on some cards, but when they just slap a sig on an existing card, it sucks.

    Stole these images from a couple of eBay auctions, so they'll likely moof before too long.

    Yup. I don't like stickers. However, a lot of the time there is not an alternative. The only Hawkins auto of him in a Titans jersey I have ever seen is a sticker auto (I have one). It's all about how they are done, and where they stick them.

    That is just about the worst I've ever seen.

    I couldn't resist the $9.99 BIN price. These have been selling for $15ish and after last night that's bound to go up.

    I bought a few packs of Stadium Club today. I pulled a Limas Sweed auto like the CJ above. Although from the scans they look like straight sticker autos, they're actually cuts. The cards are cut and the sticker placed beneath (so it has it's own little window). Better than a straight sticker, but still not too great.

    I also pulled a VY jersey and a Torry Holt 1/1... nice break :)

    ** annoying note - The Sweed autos have been selling for $25-$30, while the CJ's have been going for $15-$20
