Dual Autos (No, Not Those Kind) - Part 1/2

Yeah, this ain't about super-sick mojo hitz with two autos on one card. I don't actually have any of those. This is about comparing in-person autos to 'official' autos. I suppose that over many years one gets tired of signing his name and just scribbles whatever he pleases. There are 17 players in my collection represented by both an in-person and an 'official' auto. They should be the same, right? Right? Well, not so much. Let's roll.

Kyle Lotzkar. Similarity Grade: A

Brett Tomko. Similarity Grade: C- (you even had a facsimile to reference, Brett!)

Sean Watson. Similarity Grade: A

Aaron Boone. Similarity Grade: D (points deducted for smudging)

Bill Bray. Similarity Grade: C+ (side note - these two cards together make me feel weird)

Jeff Shaw: Similarity Grade: A deducted to C (due to using lipstick)

Juan Carlos Sulbaran. Similarity Grade: D+

B.J. Szymanski. Similarity Grade: D

Ryan Wagner. Similarity Grade: C (bonus for signing a card of yourself signing a hat)

Part 2 tomorrow. Go Reds.
