Stuck In The Wrong Place

Authentication stickers are one of the best things in the hobby because it gives you SOME comfort knowing that the autograph has been inspected.  Usually I don’t mind where a company places the sticker on a baseball, football, basketball, or hockey puck.  But when I saw this autographed buyback from 2009 Upper Deck Goudey, I had to shake my head for a moment.  Its good that Upper Deck used PSA/DNA to authenticate the autograph, but why do they need to place a sticker directly on the card?  I wonder what would happen if someone wanted to send these in for grading?  Would that sticker hurt the card’s grade, or would they leave it alone since it came from a 2009 product?  Usually PSA/DNA authenticated cards come in a slabbed holder.  But I guess this was the only choice for 2009 UD Goudey.

  1. Ohhh I would be sooo pissed. They could have done something different.

  2. It might have been a better idea to slab these & insert redemption cards in the packs.

    As little as authentication seems to mean today, I would still want the PSA/DNA sticker on my autographed buyback.
