My autograph collection of mid-to-low level stars has recently added these Graig Nettles and Ron Kittle autographs from the 2004 Topps set. They are currently in an official Topps case with an "Uncirculated" sticker on the top. The cases are a bit scratched up which bugs me but I would really just be changing one plastic prison for another.
Does the "Uncirculated" nature of the cards actually help things? I can't imagine it really matters all that much. With the exception of some of the SportKings cards, do any other companies still produce cards encased like this?
