Default what to do with cut auto's ?

I have some cut autos ive had since i was a kid..these guys were guest speakers for season end dinners (little league baseball, midget football,etc) and i saved them...
new york knicks great - Jerry Lucas
n.y. yankess - Paul Blair
brooklyn dodgers/yankess - ralph branca ("shot heard around the world pitcher
and a few others...............

Not sure what to do with em ..?? thought about printing 8x10 pics, and add auto into frames... does anyone buy cut autos just plain ?? didnt know which forum would be best..

Do you mean autographed index cards?

A 'cut auto' is one that has been cut out and inserted into a card (in the same way that a jersey is cut up and inserted into a card). Cut autos are a modern phenomena in the trading card industry.

Having said that, and assuming you mean index cards, I like your idea of framing them next to a high quality photo of the player in question.

My advice would be to keep the autographs and treasure them rather than trying to sell them. Without PSA/DNA authentication, you'd really struggle to sell the autographs on eBay since people will assume they are fake. Meanwhile, if you got them as a kid, then they must hold sentimental value to you, so I recommend keeping them for life.

Hence, framing them sounds like the right way to go

If framing them, be sure to invest in a high quality frame/glass that blocks light so that the autographs don't fade.

That Jerry Lucas auto is nice. Big, bold and fits the card perfectly.

The only problem (from a sale point of view) is that Jerry Lucas autographed cards are relatively easy to get hold of and therefore don't hold a high value. So I'd either keep them stashed away in a folder that you can easily flick through, or I'd frame them.
