I just sent in 26 cards and 22 of them were autographs, some cards dating back to 1993 (so they are not all thicker cards) and they ALL had the autograph grade on the back of the label.
Think I like it better the old way.

I was simply stating what the BGS Grading Director told me via email.

This is a Chronology (which is a thicker card so the grade is on the back, but its an auto grade 0)
