If sticker autos are necessary, then all that I ask is that they be done in blue ink. They just look so purdy.
Case in point, these three Luke Hochevar autos (that I've not yet shown off).
First, a 2007 Bowman's Best Prospect auto.
And the back.
I also own this 2006 Bowman Sterling Prospect Refractor auto, which is serial numbered 15/199.
I'm pretty sure that the seller failed to list this card as a "Refractor" because I remember getting it for a non-refractor price.
The final blue sharpie autograph that I want to show off is a 2009 Topps Series 1 Career Best autograph.
The above stats are for Luke's only season in the majors. Of course those numbers will be his career best. How could they not? He has no other season to compare these too. Like I said, I like the design of the card a lot, I just don't like the concept.
So, I like my autographed cards to be done in blue. (Although I admit that I much prefer black autographs on baseballs).
Do you have a preference on the color of your autographs?
