Good point, I was in Atlanta 4 years ago, and the Steelers came out of thier hotel room downtown, to get on the teams bus. People were lined up with things to get auto`d some guys would have card books with rookie cards, dozens for each player. And would hound each player to sign multiple cards not just one. I understand its a living for some card shop owners, but as a player i would personalize each auto. Just ask thier name, and write " To *****, Big Ben." You arent gonna make much off a personalized auto/
