Randomly inserted in retail packs at the rate of one in five foil and one in 10 magazine/retail packs, this set is a partial parallel version of the main set with an actual player autograph on 162-different regular issue cards. Some were available only via a mail-in redemption that carried an expiration date of 10/15/98. Although Billy Johnson, Fred Dean, Russ Francis, Sid Luckman, Bob Trumpy, Willie Wood, and Mike Webster did have redemption cards inserted in packs, none of those players returned any cards signed to Upper Deck. Therefore, Upper Deck substituted other autographs for those players. Mike Webster, Fred Dean and Russ Francis authentic signed cards appeared on the secondary market at a later date. There has been speculatation that they released the signed cards themselves, but forged signatures of Fred Dean seem to be fairly common.
