Topps only listed a base, blue /250, orange /25 and red /10 and plates.

From the looks of the first two getting a "10" auto grade might be tough on these.

Default Maybe...

A retail only parallel. They do like purple in retail.

Well maybe not if they came from a Jumbo case. Just posted at the same time as that info. < My edit

Just a guess,

I do not think it is retail. I think all the retail autos are stickers and the Harpers are redemptions in retail.

I have a Harper auto and these are ugly and rushed, I'd imagine if there is a crop that are cleaner and look nice the prices will be much higher. Look at the one from Topps' own stock photo vs. the 3 that are live. He traditionally signs with the 34 too

dab282 - good point, these do look rushed..kind of the like the IP autos you get on a card while the player is rushing into the locker room or team bus. Sucks to see that though and your right if there is another crop where harper sat down and took his time and added in the #34 those are going to bing a hugeeee premium

Harper's Retail sticker autos will probably get a nicer auto grade compared to these crappy on card autos

The retail autos will be identical to the hobby base autos. There's no difference between the retail and hobby except the hobby versions are live, not redemptions.

the redemptions will be stickers........ and probably a nicer signature because he will have time to sign instead of rushing to get enough on-card signatures.

Source? A separate retail version isn't on any of the checklists I've seen.
