    1996 Leaf Collector's Edition Autographs

    Looks like this forum doesn't get much action but I might as well post this, you never know.

    I recently picked up one of these sets as part of a collection and it came with a Leaf Gold Rookies Marvin Harrison card that I assumed was signed TTM or at a show or something. It was a cool bonus but nothing to write home about. Turns out these were inserted into the factory issued sets at one-per. There's ten different players. But after looking online, it seems like most (all?) of the other Harrisons I've seen are either 1. missing the autograph altogether or 2. were missing the autograph until little Jimmy figured he'd do it himself.

    My questions, if anyone knows:

    1. Are these rare (authentically autographed)?

    2. Any idea how much of the assumed print run escaped without a signature?

    Thanks

    I should probably add pictures. The cool thing about it is he signed it #8, which obviously wasn't a number he stuck with for long.

    Is this a jumbo card? I know that Leaf had some ill received jumbo autograph cards in that era. It may have been player selection as much as size, but the non standard size (2.5" x 3.5") is almost always a death sentence for a collectible in the modern era.

    No, regular card size. The two words to the top-left and top-right of his name are Authentic Signature and the factory sets of Collector's Edition mention an autograph included so these are legit, from the factory autograph inserts.

    Looks like a regular card size to me.
