Default 2012 autos getting worse with each product?

Anyone else think that with each product released the autos just keep getting worse?

I've noticed it on a couple of the players, but to me the most noticeable, maybe because I see a lot of his since I'm collecting him, but Joe Adams auto is getting bad.

The first few products, he had a great auto, spelled out his full name and it was a really sharp signature. Now half of his have a "J" with scratch after it and then a bad "A" with more scribbles after it.

Is this normal every year for them to get worse or is it because of the crazy high numbered hits that Topps is putting out which is making these guys sign that many more times that they're just getting sloppy?

It's probably a case of sloppiness due to far too many autos. Of course a lot of these guys had pretty bland to bad autographs to begin with. Egnew's is horrid.

Joe's College autos are great looking.

If I'm signing the thousands that these companies are requesting, I'd probably shorten it up also.

Is Joe Adams hurt or just benched for the fumbles?

"Benched for fumbles" but the real reason is because Ron Rivera is a freaking dip$hit with a stick up his butt.

The fans aren't happy about him not dressing anymore, guy was a rookie who made a couple fumbles, that's no reason to just disregard a mod round draft pick with lots of potential when the rest of the team sucks as well.

Give the kid a chance to show what he can do, we're not going to the playoffs anyways, Rivera is a joke and needs to be fired yesterday

I haven't looked at enough players to give input, but in my opinion the Topps Chrome autographs of Chris Rainey are his nicest to date (they couldn't have got much worse though).

Luke's has gotten sloppier with the more products that come out.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.
