2011 Card Countdown - Number 7

Some people don't like cut autos. I don't mind them if they are done right.

2004 Fleer Greats of the Game - Joe Cronin Cut Auto

This is an example of a well done cut auto card. The picture of Cronin is a tad small, but overall I think the card is well designed. The color of the card compliments the background colors of the auto portion and the overall design is understated, forswearing the over-the-top glitz that a lot of card companies seemed to feel was necessary.

Coming on Monday: A Hall of Famer and an rare variation card all in one.
