|2011 SP Legendary Cuts Traynor cut signature|
Tonight while trolling the Upper Deck blog I read the story about the recently released 2011 SP Legendary Cuts product and the Pie Traynor cut signature caught my attention. I am just amazed at the ability that someone was able to hack in to this signature with a chainsaw and still be able to make a card out of it.

Compare the 2011 version to a 2005 version, there is no question as to which card most collectors would want. I realize that companies put out big money to purchase authentic autographs to use in these sets but when a signature is going to be mangled to make it work maybe the best decision is to remove the player from the set all together.
Back in 2008 Upper Deck put a mangled up Jackie Robinson cut signature in the 2008 SP Legendary Cuts product so this is an on-going problem. I know collectors like pulling big name/high dollar cuts but this is just ugly. Don't collectors deserve better?
