There is currently a John Elway Leaf Certified FOTG Century card on ebay that is serial numbered to 21. However, the serial number on back is hand-written? I have ten FOTG cards of Elway and none of them have a hand-written serial number and I have never seen such of any other player with such. Does anyone know if there were cards made with hand-written serial numbers?

The patch is cool so I'm interested but skeptical. I've asked the seller about it but have not gotten a response yet.
I have yet to see one.
I HAVE NOT SEEN 1.
A lot of non-numbered Donruss cards have popped up of Marino lately, I think someone took creative rights.

+1 on that. I've actually seen one with a foil stamped serial that's not the right font and numbered incorrectly. The seller claims ignorance, but who knows these days. There are some sets that are known to have hand numbering for replacement cards (1998 SP Authentic) but I don't think this one fits the bill.

Donruss replacements typically had a different numbering than the in pack ones. I always thought it was weird, and it is such a rare occurrence that I don't even have a photo example

So you mean a different font AND #'d to a different number? If so that means the card I was describing could be real... It's an autographed Steve Young card and the auto is for sure real.

If one would send in Steve Young 21/100... they would replace with 21/100.... Also need to check the "Authentic Auto" stamps too. A lot of weird charity event releases with early Donruss stuff.
