If you had $25 to blow on an autograph:


The reason I ask is that although Emmitt is a Hall of Famer, his final Cardinal years were sad.  Are we seeing the same thing with LaDanian? Will his Jets years be better than Emmitts Cardinal years?  LaDanian in a Hall of Famer himself. So basically it comes down to taste.  For me, it LaDanian all the way, even if the Emmitt is worth more.

    Mary Anne for sure.
    Um… er… the Emmitt for me.

    Personally, although I hate the Cowboys with all the hatred one could fathom for a football team… if you’re talking about the two examples above, I’d spend my $25 on the Emmit Smith. Not only would it be worth more, I just think it’s a nicer looking auto than LT’s in this instance…

    Gotta take the Emmitt. On card > sticker, especially since the auto goes off of the sticker. The whole layout of the Emmitt is better…good picture, less fluff.

  4. In this particular case…

    Emmitt over LT. Because:

    1. The Emmitt is an on-card auto
    2. The LT auto goes off the sticker so some of it is missing and it is really noticeable. For me, asthetics in a PC are paramount.
    3. Emmitt is a current HOFer (LT is most certainly in down the road) but let’s be honest, you aren’t likely to go to a memorabilia/card show and see Emmitt signing for $25. Maybe 10X that if you are lucky.
    4. Although it appears there is a bit of a ding in the corner of the Emmitt, the 97 Leaf cards look much nicer than the recycled Upper Deck design we have all seen a million times.
    **side note – – I hate Emmitt Smith. Well maybe not hate but strongly dislike. And I would still pick the Smith card because of the preceeding comments.

    Sticker auto awfulness aside, those ’97 Leaf autos are all on 8×10 large sized cards that look really really good in person. I’d drop the $25 on that in a heartbeat.

    L.T. because he can still take over the top running back spot for the Jets. I belive he is in better physical shape than Emmit Smith at the time of changing teams.
