Ok this guy has 0 feedback, and I was just cruising the bay looking for iginla items, and I checked out an 8x10. It was probably the worst looking iginla auto I've ever seen. I looked at some other, and they didn't really look that legit either. Some I saw looked good, but others screamed fake to me. Wasn't planning on bidding on anything, but take a look for yourself and tell me what you think.

I don't know, the Sid autos look fake. I really want the Kane WC AU, but don't know if it's worth the risk...

I never like the idea of "nothing but stars".

I'd be suspicious

Thats what had me thinking. Every player is a high caliber player. I agree the Sid autos looked pretty bad. I have 30 or 40 iginla autos and not one looks as bad as the two he has for sale. Wasn't planning on bidding, thats for sure, was thinking about calling him out.

Some of those auto's look pathetic IMO. I'd say stay away from those, maybe even report that seller, those are SCREAMING fake

I agree, this seller is sketchy at best...

However, on the whole, a lot of sellers that sell authentic 8x10 autographs obtain these at airports, hotels etc... for these reasons the autographs are often not as appealing as sports card autographs where the athlete signs sitting down at a table on a hard surface... these are signed quickly in the air etc., thus sometimes varying from what we are used to seeing.

its risky to buy those types of in person autos, I'd stick to the UD or other brand name collectables.
this reminds me of a guy that was selling in person autos of the masterpiece set, he was in Nova Scotia and he had almost every player that was alive signed the cards in all the same blue pen, I asked him where and how did he get all those stars in the same place at the same time to sign all those cards after the set was just released after a month. never got a response, but all is cards where being bidded on and he also had a 0 rating.
