A sticker auto is just that: an autograph on a sticker. A hard-signed or on-card auto is one that is signed on the card and not on a sticker.

Congrats on pulling an Auto, who did you get? The 'hard signed' Auto is also known as an 'on-card' where the player actually signed that card, and is pretty neat because the player actually had the card in his hand! The sticker auto is just what it sounds like, the player signs a bunch of stickers and sends them back to the manufacturer who applies the sticker to the card. Welcome to the Hobby and good luck pulling future Auto's

Most collectors (including myself) prefer the on-card autographs to the sticker autographs. On-card usually have much better eye appeal and the card will have been actually handled by the person signing it.

The difference between both is that hard-signed autos are much nicer and the player touched the card. And of course $$$$$!

Yeah you did great. Honestly, the difference between the two isn't very much. If you get a Hall sticker auto and a Hall hard signed, it's not going to matter THAT much except to certain people. An autograph is an autograph in my eyes. It's either they sign it all at once, or they sign the card itself. But from what I can tell, you did great with your box breaks. Good luck collecting in the future!

You're just a kid? Don't sell yourself short. I'm guessing you're what...14? That's a young man.

Congrats on your pulls so far in this hobby. I hope your streak continues.

To me it doesn't really make THAT much of a difference, but there definitely are some big ones. Hard signed ones are usually bigger, clearer, and often more detailed. As someone mentioned its gratifying to know the player actually held the card, which is cool. And from a value standpoint, it's (apparently) harder for companies to have athletes hard sign cards. Whereas they can knock out sheets and sheets of stickers in no time. SO since they're harder to get, they carry a premium. In the end, Hard signed ones just look cleaner and better all round.

its in production
Lazy and cheap way is Sticker (like when Fleer sends one sheet of clear stickers and has one sign all the clear stickers on that one sheet.
More expensive way is Hand signed/on card (like Upper Deck producing a Card first including printed #'d 50 of 50. sends all say 50 produced cards to one to sign each card
I would much rather have the hand signed card or on card
