call me crazy, but all these releases, serial #'d or not, there are so many serial #'d auto cards, that the signature itself becomes more common with each release. Just my opinion. cool cards for sure, but I think there are just way to many releases, sets, etc. Which looking back in history for any hobby, when they start making every and anything cranking it out, yes the manufacturers make money here and now, but then the market is flooded with all these autographs. am I crazy?

Beautiful cards, but I find it ironic that even in Topps' pictures, they're chipped.

Any suggestions to stop the chipping? Black border cards that are hand signed and packed out are very hard to prevent chipping on.

maybe if they had them in penny sleeves inside the packs like Benchwarmers used to do with Kiss cards back in the day, so that the lipstick didn't smear hah

That way they wouldn't undergo so much wear from the handling of the product.

It could work in something like Sterling, but in regular bowman people would be able to search the packs if one card is sleeved.
