Each Autograph is available in the following parallels.

  • Refractor (serial-numbered to 25 copies)
  • Printing Plates (set of four for each card)


  • Each Autograph comes encased in a plastic holder similar what the eTopps cards came packaged in; however, over the years some collectors have cracked open the plastic holder in order to get the cards professionally graded.
  • Topps announced the production runs for each Group A (25 copies), Group B (50 copies), and Group C (75 copies) Autograph -- although these cards are NOT serial-numbered. The specific odds of finding a autograph and calculated production runs are as follows.

GROUP A: 1:675/packs, announced to 25 copies
GROUP B: 1:338/packs, announced to 50 copies
GROUP C: 1:82/packs, announced to 75 copies
GROUP D: 1:25/packs, 225 copies
GROUP E: 1:8/packs, 468 copies
GROUP F: 1:46/packs, 1465 copies
GROUP G: 1:2/packs, 1350 copies
GROUP H: 1:33/packs, 2100 copies
