Default Just bought this..

2012 Brett Lawrie Topps Chrome Blue Ref Auto Autograph RC 199 Blue Jays | eBay

The best Lawrie auto I've ever seen..centering and corners seem perfect..sending to Beckett as soon as I get it..and I think it's possible that he will be great next year..bit of a gamble..what do you think?

Nice card, congrats on your pickup. Looks like it will grade well IMO.

Nice card and good centering, only thing is the auto might get a 9 because the streak in the beginning of his last name. Nice pick up either way!

Assuming the edges are fine, I see nothing wrong with the card. Best of luck!

I think you will get a 9 Auto. I wouldn't bother sending myself.

Also, just for your reference, heres what Lawrie's signature looked like last year (his 2011 bowman chrome autos should probably be the best you have seen)

2011 Bowman Chrome Brett Lawrie Blue Refractor Chrome Auto 150 Blue Jays | eBay

Nice card, good luck with your grading

Wow, that's very different than his crap autos this year in Topps Chrome..alsmost all of them are extremely streaky and sloppy. You think 50 was too much to pay for this card? I've seen them go for 30 in auction, but they did not look this good by any means.

Its all about how much you wanted it, and I dont think you overpayed by a crazy amount. Lawrie should be a solid player and thats a nice colored rc auto. That being said, his earlier autos, including even some of the 2012 gypsy queens from what I saw, were great signatures, he has certainly changed how he signs.
