Default Toughest NBA autograph to obtain?

I'm not really into autos, but I'm guessing that the toughest one is Barkley from what I have read?? As far as living players, who else doesn't sign them very often?

Ewing is notoriously tough. But then again, Bill Russell from the Celtics was once the same way and now his autograph is at least available now. Maybe Pat will go broke and need to make some money down the road?

ITs just a matter of time before Barkley, Ewing and maybe even Wallace start to sign.

Toughest autos are of guys that held out on signing and have since past.

Ewing has an estimated net worth of 85 mil

Sheed has an estimated net worth of 75 mil

If these guys ever start signing cards, it won't be for the money.

When Sheed gets a technical, Stern should make him sign cards instead of fining him.

If anybody has a Sheed auto, PM me, I'm in the market.

I agree with Rasheed. Funny thing about Barkley is he willingly signs in person if you're nice about it.

Garnett, Sheed, and Ewing are the only three who are truly impossible in-person. Harrison Barnes may be going down the same road, tho.

Im always suprised Barkley doesnt sign, I just think that he would love some extra gambling money.

I'd say Garnett and Ewing. I have a few buddies who got Sheed IP in the last few years and Chuck signed three for me at one time (granted that was a triple dip). I also got Phil in his last year with LA. All those guys are tough but Pat and KG are impossible. The Heat starters and Kobe are mostly bad too.

Barkley, Ewing and Rasheed Wallace are tough signs. Phil Jackson is also really tough. Karl Malone is kind of tough too.

I tried to get sheed IP when he played for the pistons and he acted like a complete jerk.

Sheed is not too bad if you don't mind the college autos from those off brands, I was able to pick this one up a while back

Chris Webber seems like another tough signer at least certified cards wise. Not sure how he is in person.

Does look like Raheed signed a ton of those scoreboard, signature rookies, classic cards ect when he got drafted. Finding those certs cheap is pretty easy.

Did Leaf ever say who the big name tough signer they had a deal with. They teased it on twitter awhile back.
I do wonder why Barkley hasn't signed a mega deal with someone soon to crank out the autos for them.. We all know he likes to gamble and have heard stories of how much he has lost. Seems like easy mad money for him to do some signings. I bet we se it soon with him. I hope he is Leaf signer they were talking about.

If you just look at just certified pack autos. Who has signed the fewest of guys mentioned so far?
Is Barkley just in the 2 years of autographics and a sp in both?
Phil Jackson has only been in a couple Panini products I think. What is highest serial # auto he has. What prices has he sold for.
Ewing has signed for UD.

I went to a Heat preason game against the Hawks and D-Wade and Bosh were pretty cool about signing autos. King James did not come out to sign but I didn't expect him too. I would put him on the list of most difficult signers.

How about John Stockton? I heard that he is great for TTM, but tough IP signer.
Unless they have changed their signing habits in recent years, I heard that Hakeem Olajuwon, Alonzo Mourning and Scottie Pippen are tough as well.

Ewing, by far... but my Dad recently met Barkley and said he was the nicest guy in the world and that his wife actually gets annoyed bc he loves being so social with the guests (at the resort)... I can't believe he doesn't sign?

Speaking of Barkley, I actually heard that, except for some occasions, he generally doesn't sign anything that shows his face on it (at least for IP autographs). Does it still hold true now?
