Default Aflac Autos?

Why are some te have certified auto on them not signed? How can you tell if they are IP signed or pack pulled? Like this years class Correa & Virant etc. are they in any products yet? I didn't think thy we're but seen numerous. Thanks.

Correa isn't in any product yet, the ones on ebay were probably signed at the Perfect Game (formerly Aflac) All American Classic game.

The pack pulled cards will be numbered. Bryce Harper pack pulled are numbered to /230 but there are always a lot of IP that aren't numbered on ebay.

Theres about 5-10 Correa floating around on Ebay that are fake. One guy sold a bunch right after the draft and now they have been floating....I asked the seller how he obtained them and he told me his friend knew correa agent but declined to give any more details... I asked a dif seller and he had the same story so makes me think same seller dif accounts.

To make the waters murkier, Topps forgot to number the Aflac cards in 2011 BDPP so there really is no way to tell which were pack pulled and which were signed in person.

Ok thanks for the input guys appreciate it. So was Austin Hedges in 2011? Have his #d to 240. Also anyone know if hunter virant was in 2011 too? Thanks again!
I think it's VERY stupid Topps gives them out NON autoed with the Topps Certified Auto stamp on them. Doesn't make much sense when there isn't an auto on them and then people can get them signed IP and claim they are pack pulled/from Topps.

Over the summer I won this one of Joey Gallo from the Bowman Facebook page...

I'm keeping the message and packaging as proof that it is real in case i ever sell it



This one is extremely rare because they only gave away 5 and they aren't in packs...There is one on ebay in black but it states that it was in person.. one has also sold for 100$ that looks like mine

And then they "fixed" the problem by having PSA grade/authenticate the cards, but there was no way for PSA to know which were pack-pulled and which were IP so not sure how that helped. They also had a small window for getting them graded for free which has closed already, so there are a ton of ungraded/unauthenticated ones out there that are 100% legit

They will be in packs soon and the ones in the packs will be numbered.
