    Autographs are “numbered to 99 copies or less”; but, when I know a player signed thousands of other cards then lumping these 99 into another category is silly, value-wise and from a buyer’s standpoint – unless, of course, we aren’t paying for the autograph (of which there are indeed thousands every year for some players), just the card it’s on. Then, there are only 99 printed in that image.
