I have 150 year old books I can read, and CDs I bought 20 years ago that have bit rot.

Yeah, there are so many cuts this time. . .

Kilmer surprises me since he already has a bunch of autograph cards.

I liked their random in person autographs (Leaf Limited Inscriptions) a lot better than these cuts. . . I have been tempted on a couple, but haven't pulled the trigger.

I think there is only one autograph I'm going to chase this year. . . if I see good deals on a few others I might pick them up.

Not a bad release, but not much I have to have. . . and I still wish they would drop the chrome/metal and go back to the classic stock.

I also find it kind of unprofessional that one of Michelle Johnson's cards is a photo of Amy Jo Johnson and Leaf isn't going to fix it. . .

That's sort of the argument. I collect cards, not autographed books or cds. However, I personally do not like it when the auto comes from those items. Some card companies take previously signed cards and use those, and it drives me crazy.

The only exceptions (again, for me) are things like personal checks or letters, that sort of stuff.

Cuts -- as with most things it comes down to how well it is implemented. . .

The Hillary / Chelsea Clinton cuts are horrible IMHO. I haven't seen the full item before it was cut, but I assume nearly all of Hillary's last name was hacked off to make the card. . .

Most of them appear to have come from signed books, which is easy for Leaf to order dozens of for cuts.

Yeah, but there is an issue with signed books because sometimes what you get is an autopen signature and you don't realize it until you see other copies. Celebrities often see no difference between hand signed and any other kind of signed, or at least they pretend not to know the difference. So let's hope that Leaf picked up the right signed books.

Having all the autographs serial numbered is an interesting tactic. . . I definitely paid more for an autograph today than I would have if it wasn't numbered only because I know how few exist (at least in this release).

So many different colored parallels and not being sure if every color was signed by every celebrity makes things a bit confusing. My best guess for Ricci is around 200 to 250 total signatures.
