Maybe it is all the same seller. I know people that use friends and family members accounts from all over the US. They do it to get the free listings.

I looked and there is a huge variety of retired and current players for sale. Have you looked for more info over on BO? They are way better at this modern stuff.

Not sure what to make of the Ted Williams. I don't know if there's possibly any sticker signatures left of his hat the card companies hold maybe for future releases. Obviously he's not making any on card sigs these days. But the Trout card I posted before was a sticker auto. I just am not sure if any unused sticker auto Ted Williams exist or not?

Or maybe intended to be cut and used as the front of a card including a cut sig?

Starting to look like a production problem where the signed cards were used normally, or some regular cards were run through the setup to print the auto info. Is it part of the overall printing or an overprint?

It's part of the card not printed or stamped on top. The print is seamless with rest of image.

You are right, that card does make no sense at all.

I can't remember any sticker autos of Ted's existing. I don't think the card companies have an issue I can remember them on prior to 2002.

Yea, that card is so weird that I'd think if these cards were totally counterfeit, which I can't see being the case, but if they were any counterfeiter with half a brain should know enough not to make an autograph error like this of Ted Williams in 2017!

Makes me think something weird happened at Topps factory. But again, I really have no clue with these at all!

I find it strange that not a single person on BO has pulled one. Some of those guys bust crazy amounts of wax. Plus there are a few players showing up that there is no way to even have a autographed sticker for let alone on card autos.

This would make sense back in the late 80's/early90's when error cards were popular. Most younger collectors now see them as complete trash. So I find it hard to believe Topps would be doing it on purpose.

I did find the bridge post funny.

Maybe these particular cards were configured on a sheet in such a way as to have accidentally received the autograph notation, with no intention of having any signed versions (Clemente & Williams as subjects all but confirm that thought). Seems like a printing error to me.
