Joe Likey

When is the last time you saw a good autograph card? Not a Braves player. One that has actual value.
I saw this one:
2004 SP Authentic
SP Chirography Silver Duo Toned
07 / 30

and had to get it. It has a good overall design. The colors work well. It's kind of hard to mess up Black and White. But throw in a dash of Reds and you have an award winner. Simple. Yet effective. A large enough area for an on card signature with the players name faded. I like that. But when was the last time you saw an inscription? Besides the nickname sets I can't really remember any. And that is what makes this card not an average, shiny card. I have yet to figure out what the 27 RBI and 5 / 03 mean but it must be good if Upper Deck wanted it on there.
Don't get me wrong. I like sticker autos as well. Just not enough rom on most for the signature and something like this.
