Help w/ Card: 1995 Classic AU
I collect Steve Kelly. It doesn't matter who he is, I do. Anyway, as far as I know, this
is his only autographed card. But then I go on eBay and see this:
Beckett has no listing of a serial numbered card that I can find and I've never seen one before. Is this a thing, or did someone randomly number a card? Any help is appreciated.

Classic sure knew how to mix up collectors back in the day. You have the regular 1995 Auto in your collection. However, Classic must have had a bunch left over as they chose to place them in their 1995/96 product and numbered them out of 225 on top of that. The one on Ebay is a legitimate pack pull and you can tell by the special embossing in the lowering right corner. I hope that helps.

I'm thinking I do. I didn't notice the embossment (thanks) and my copy doesn't have that.
Thanks! That helped.

Beckett doesn't list these for some reason but if you search on COMC for these 1995 Classic 5 Sport autographs some are numbered and some aren't. Those that are numbered have the numbering and a embossed stamp in the corner. So they are legit but I don't know if they were in the original product or maybe a later one by Classic that filled it up with buybacks and past issues. Beckett is awful on a lot of the Classic releases so it isn't shocking that they don't have any information about it.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content
