Default Picked up some Rackrs blank auto cards

I grabbed some Rackrs blank cards for baseball autos off Ebay and I'm waiting for them to arrive. Does anyone have any experience with sending these out? They're a bit pricey at 50 for $15(plus shipping) so I don't want to waste many of them. They are cheaper than the "Autograph Card" brand. Preferably I'd find a way to print my own, has anyone tried that?

I think rackrs cards are better looking than the autograph card brand, but the autograph card has cards that rackrs does not.

Yeah but if you check out Racks website, they have a lot of different styles and sports. sample packs too that have a few of each.

I just got some of these last week and am taking them with me to Spring Training. I love the feel of them in that they are paper and not a glossy feel. Very similar to heritage cards which is perfect for autos.

The only downside to these is how many players refuse to sign them.

Usually the response is "they tell us not to sign those (blank items)" or something along those lines...same reason a lot of guys don't sign index cards. I think it has something to do with identity theft, or at least that's one of the common guesses.

I know but the autograph card brand has a outstanding American card and a Olympic card. I buy cards from both and they both have great cards.

I got them in the mail today and holy smokes, these cards are awesome! They're a thicker stock than your normal card, but they're still cut to perfection. Every single card would get a PSA 10 straight out of the box. I emailed Rackrs asking about adding basketball auto cards to the shipment before they sent it out. They replied that they'd just throw a few in for free. They threw in twenty free basketball blanks and a 5 extra baseball blanks (different styles)! Rackrs has themselves a customer for life.

and that is why I really like Rackrs! Every time I have ordered stuff from them they have put extras in the package. Got a sampler pack one time that had 3 or 4 of each of their designs. I like the card stock they use as well...even after sending them for TTM autos, they come back in excellent condition.

Ive had rackrs cards before and they are a great customer service oriented company for sure.
dont know if you guys have checked out "rookies" app for iOS? I will post a new thread for these, but compared to rackers, they are a little less in cost and you can customize them however you want inside of their template
