How misleading is it for Topps to call a printed dragon footprint card an autograph card?

Honestly, I don't think it's misleading at all. What did you expect from a Dragon's autograph. Here's how it was solicited:

quote:
Inserts
(10) Riders License - A funny take on drivers licenses of the dragon riders
(5) Punch Out Constructible
(10) Foil Character Cards
(10) Location Cards - See where the dragons live
(10) Temporary Tattoos
(20) Sticker Cards
(5) Dragon "Autographs" - Footprints of the most popular dragons


Autographs in quotes and a description of what they intended.

Now, I've not see the packaging for this one, but they didn't sell it as having autographs.

And, autographs in a $2 pack are practically unheard of anymore.

You mean compared to UD doing a mocked up ScarJo autograph card in pre-release and then never having made it for the product?

Not even close to misleading. Big Grin

Not being a dealer I did not get the solicitation. They could have called the bonus card dragon footprint card but knowing how collectors have an obsession with pack pulled autographs it was a marketing move to call it that. I thought it was strange that there was one in every 24 packs.
