and further, that also goes for ANY parallel, auto or not

I saw a guy pull a "1/1" babe ruth auto from a pack and try to sell it for 6k. You can buy a babe ruth cut auto for way less than that. so what im saying is a CUT AUTO IS SIMPLY A CUT AUTO. Just because a card manufacturer decides to put that cut auto in a case and say its a 1/1 how does that make it anymore valuable or different than any other cut auto???

whats the difference between a sticker auto and a cut auto
Nothing at all except a sticker auto is signed on a sticker and a cut auto is signed on a piece of paper or index card. thats pretty obvious

either one os slapped onto a card (or into)_, and variations are thusly produced
if cut autos are not worth more, because they are all just cut autos, the same goes for sticker autos

The cut auto is a piece of history that a company bought and crammed into a cardboard holder, most of them look mighty nice. I suppose I understand the feable premise that "all autos are 1/1" I dont buy it but I understand it, its the cut auto and the cardboard holder that it is so gently crammed into that create a combination that is rare or unique and causes such clammor for them. If you dont like it, dont pay 6k for one, sit back and laugh at the rest of us who get it, and spend your 6k on unnumbered items that go for $10 a pop and see how great your collection is.
