I think it was mentioned on Beckett in the past too... an overseas seller wanted a US seller to sale some auto cards from this set.. sounded too fishy, so the US seller, which is a member of Beckett said no..
I do not understand why Skybox would emboss the same card or any of their cards a different way than the majority of them were embossed.. they should of all been embossed the same way.. from the front of the card.. I do not know how skybox would emboss 10's of thousands of cards in a timely manner, but I would think that the cards were signed when still attached to card sheets & then embossed... then cut down to correct size & packaged for us box breakers...
I have seen a few cards with the embossed logo was done on the back of the card.. I didn't think much of it.. cards were over my spending limit, so I passed them up & overlooked them..
Embossed stamps are very easy to recreate. I had a local company in San Diego, Ca recreate embossed stamps for the military by looking at a sheet of paper that was embossed with the logo. they recreated it to the exact characteristics & font for under $100.. these were embossing stamps that were not supposed to be recreated.. somebody could of done the same think with the skybox embossed stamps.. or they could of bought originals from skybox that somebody let slip out of the vault..
I wish skybox was back!!

As this was the early days of autographed cards, all signing sessions were filmed and attended in person by a Fleer Skybox representative to gurantee authenticity.
