In addition, the following "certified" autographed cards/sets MUST also go through the JSA/BGS authentication process:

  • 1993 -94 Hoops Magic/Bird Auto
  • Fleer Autographs with questionable embossments (1992-93 Scottie Pippin, Tony Gwynn, Steve Young, etc.)
  • Fleer Autographs missing factory serial numbering (because of the influx of unsigned blank auto cards due to the Fleer bankruptcy sale)

    Many others at the discretion of BGS
