The description of Sound Off is "to voice one's opinions freely and vigorously." That's what we intend to do with this part of our blog; something we hope will become a regular feature. So, here is our first ever "Sports Card Sound Off."
We hear all the time about how much collectors frown upon Sticker Autos and Redemptions. Yet, collectors seem to like cut autos as long as they are done well and they certainly don't mind waiting extra time past a release date to get the cards they want. So why isn't an autograph an autograph? What is the problem with having a card sent to you, at a company's expense, through a redemption program? Maybe you have no problem with this and maybe you have a big problem with this.
More than knowing how you feel about this issue, we are really interested in why you feel like you do. So, using the comments below, tell us WHY you either like or don't like sticker autos and redemptions. Leaving a comment like "because they suck" doesn't really help us here because it doesn't lead to much of a response other than "Yeah... they suck" or "They don't suck." So, try to share with us the reasoning behind your opinion. And, please do your best to keep it clean so that people of all ages can participate too.
