Default So my wife says to me...

"I was reading the new Baseball Beckett in the bathroom, and I saw that thing about those Cut Autos of Pope John Paul II and George Washington...I wanna pull a cut auto of someone who's dead. How do we get one of those?"

So, being the accomodating husband that I am, I am looking for a product that has the best chance at a cut auto for the most reasonable price. What should I be looking at? Doesn't have to be 2007 product. Thanks in advance.

Not to beat a dead horse, no pun intended, but 2007 Razor Poker has cut autos of long time gone Presidents such as Lincoln, JQ Adams, US Grant, etc. along with Jack Ruby. Only 300 cases were made and from what I gather, the majority of the cuts have yet to be pulled. The cases can currently be purchased for $800 through Blowout. Not sure what a box would cost you.

Sounds like a decent chance to me.

There are 11 "different" cut autos with some of them having more than 1 of each. I think between 25 and 30 in all. Almost one per 10 cases I believe, but don't quote me on that.

You could go with a case of Sweet Spot Classic. Each case has 1 auto from a deceased baseball player (cut baseball leather) and there's the shot at the Mystery Cut Redemption.

I pulled a Jake Wade Distinguished Serivce Cut(dead guy) 1/1 auto, out of a box of Topps Series 2 HTA.(thanks, blowout) The odds are much higher for the HTA boxes and I have only seen 2 ever on ebay. There are 59 in the set. Minus mine of course. I just thought the price point might make this a cheaper try.
