On Card Autograph or Officially Licensed?

What's more important to you as a collector? I posted this as a poll on Twitter yesterday and was a bit surprised at the results. Take the simple poll yourself and see for yourself. What's your reaction to the results. How did you vote and why? Take the poll now.

Great poll. This is definitely a situation of picking the lesser of two evils. I ended up going with the officially licensed sticker auto, because 99% of the time I can't stand logo-less photos. And I'm only bothered by sticker autographs 98% of the time.

It's not the logo I care about. It's the player and the card. A sticker defaces a card in my opinion. How long are they going to stick too? Will they curl? It's like autos on material pieces... how long before they bleed? I prefer a hard-signed autograph... a picture of the player is necessary but the logo is just a bonus.

50%/50% is exactly the results I would have guessed. I personally would take anything over a stupid sticker autograph. I told Playoff that was the biggest mistake they were ever making when they made the very first sticker (return address labels) on 2001 Score Select FB RC autographs. They did this ONLY to save them time and money.
But card companies have pushed and pushed stickers so hard on collectors that they followed the leader and they now don't mind stickers. Those sheep will one day be very sorry they didn't force card companies to stick with ON CARD autographs! How many of you called the card companies (Hobby Relations Manager- never Customer Service) to complain about stickers? 5%??? That why they keep making them!!!
