Bryce Harper‘s autograph is one that’s been obsessed about quite a bit in the last few years, but next week it gets even crazier with the arrival of the high-end Topps Five Star brand.

Why?

Bryce Harper inscriptions. The NL Rookie of the Year finalist not only signed a selection of cards for the $500-per-pack product but he also added some extra notations that will be pulled by collectors.

Here’s an early peek at the cards … after the jump.

    I agree Steve. That’s the first thing I noticed too. He clearly wrote “there” initially.
    I would have loved to have been the person standing over his shoulder saying “Hey Bryce, it’s ‘t.h.e.i.r.'”
    I’m a big Bryce fan but this is too funny.

    Interesting that these have the RC logo. Topps has been very liberal with the use of that this year, such as in Update with the rookie debut cards of players who had RCs in series 1.

    Sorry! Used to buy baseball cards, but not anymore. It’s just too and i mean waaaaaaaay too over-inflated prices on a pack of cards now. With the economy the way it is you should give a homeless person or poor person $495 for every $500 pack of cards you buy. It’s know wonder the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. This disgusts me. The old days were best. Only one type of card(topps) with your bubblegum and paying 50 cents per pack. Way overpriced.
