I've often wondered this, but never really looked into it. Does anyone know what the athletes get paid by UD, Topps, etc... for each auto they sign?

If you do, please provide some examples of different levels of players and what they make.

Just curious.

Thanks,
John

It is a trade secret - this is from Chris Carlin from Upper Deck!

What is the most Upper Deck has paid for any living signer? (price per signature)

Unfortunately I cannot disclose that. I can share that if I got paid what even the low-end guys get paid for their signature, you would have a hard time getting the sharpie out of my hand.
