    Is it always beneficial to get auto's?

    I am looking at sending in some of my 60's topps cards for autos. Is it always more beneficial to have a card that has an auto on it?

    Are you thinking about sending these cards out for TTM autos?

    Yes. What is the difference between using TTM and other means?

    What other means? TTM is sending to the player with a return envelope,the card or whatever your sending a letter of request and sometimes a donation.

    Then yes I will be using TTM to get autos.

    would getting autos for players always be beneficial when trying to sell them? Or do most people want a raw card?

    or is it only worth while to get HOF and rookie cards signed?

    It depends on the person.A rookie card of a HOFer,or a HOF signed card could bring a
    higher price to the right person.There are also a number of people that try to put signed sets together,so there are tougher signed cards that will bring a good price,again,to the right person.

    In 99% of the time it would be beneficial to get an autograph. The only time I think it would hurt is if you had a perfect card that would get a PSA 10 or something. That would be more valuable to the card collecting community to have a rare vintage card get a perfect 10 than to have one autographed since it will bring down the grade. You can get any type of condition card autographed so use a good one but one that isn't mint.

    Best stuff to get signed are rookie cards, record or milestone event showcase cards.

    Why would a signed PSA 10 bring the grade lower if it is an authentic signature? I mean if i had a PSA 10 Mickey mantle rookie AND it is signed.... I would expect that to command an even higher price?

    but if one is trying to sell these autographed cards, i was under the impression that most, if not all people are hesitant to buy them due to authenticity. I have always been told that it hurts the value of the card to have a signature on it that was not authentically proven by PSA, or some other authenticators.

    isnt it your word over theirs whether an auto is in fact a true auto, not someone forging one for a sale
