I've searched the forum for a while but haven't been able to find a thread where this has been addressed. Forgive me if it has. I just broke a 2012 Topps Pro Debut box yesterday & my 2 auto cards have badly smugded autos. I carefully placed them in toploaders anyway but i'm wondering if 1. This has happened to any of you, 2. What, if anything did you do about it, and 3. I assume the answer is yes but does a smudged auto greatly de-value a card? Planning on talking to my local shop where i made the purchase & give Topps a ring but just wanted some info from anyone who's experienced this. Thanks guys.
