A strong no from me, I see it as great for the collector who wants that done, but imo it still ruins the card, plus i'm guessing it would be very difficult to prove it's authentic unless there's a COA with it.

I think signing it ruins that MOC for other collectors who may want it in future.

Personally, I would not get a moc autographed or think its value is higher than a non-autographed version.

I also believe some would find it de-values the moc itself like a child whose has ticked the card back or other writing.

I can see why some think it is a good idea but not for me sorry.

I wouldn't either myself I feel it ruins the moc. I like having a carded figure the way it left the factory untampered with. If I was into autographs I would get a picture signed.

I wouldn’t get one signed but I would buy a signed one (although I wouldn’t pay a premium for the signature)

I wouldn’t get aMOC signed, as Yoda said, I like mine as they left the factory.
I personally wouldn’t buy a signed card either, I think that it devalues the item, and oh, yes, it looks shit... :lol:
If you want something signed get it on a photo.

I have a modern 4-LOM signed for my Zuckuss focus but definitely wouldn't want to see it on a vintage card.

Definitely a no. I don't even really associate the actors with the figures. Especially pointless with non human characters where you can't even see their faces. Could literally be anyone in that Klaatu outfit

No def not on vintage

My son bought a repro fett card and bubble ( :shock: few years ago) but he put a vintage fett in it for the sole purpose of getting JB to sight it...does look pretty cool. The back of the card clearly states reproduction as well.
