Along with being a baseball & boxing addict, I am what you’d call a pop culture “buff”. In reality, that’s a nice word for a couch potato. I love movies, television, music you name it. While I have never ventured into the entertainment trading card world on a personal level, I do enjoy a good celebrity autograph once in a while.
While doing an eBay search I came across some cards by a company called Inkworks who in the past did all their autographs on-card. Unfortunately, like every other trading card company not named Razor, they have switched over to stickers. The problem? They happen to be the ugliest sticker autographs I have ever seen and they take away from the overall design of each card it is used in.
Just check out what is perhaps Inkworks’ Holy Grail, a 2001 on-card autograph trading card of Angelina Jolie. Now that is a great celebrity trading card autograph done right! As for the Samuel L. Jackson and David Duchovny certified autographs below, I would have to file them under ‘Hall of Shame’ simply because of the sticker autograph.
Sometimes they work… other times they fail miserably.
