From the recent Topps press release:
“The AFLAC High School All-American Autographed cards that were inserted into packs of the recently-released 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects did not get sequentially numbered. The seven subjects included Archie Bradley, Dylan Bundy, Larry Greene, Travis Harrison, Francisco Lindor, Robert Stephenson and Blake Swihart.
To ensure the autographed card’s authenticity, Topps has teamed with PSA on a program that allows collectors to have their card certified and graded free of charge.
Collectors holding any of the seven different cards pulled from packs of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects should send their card and return information to the address below. Each card’s autograph will be examined for authenticity as well each card will be graded on PSA’s standard scale (1-10). In addition, all graded cards will feature language on the descriptor tab that is exclusive to this program.
Only AFLAC cards pulled from packs of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks will be accepted. The Topps/PSA program offer is good until July 1, 2012.

Overall, I think this is a great thing done by Topps to ensure that these autographs are in no way forged or altered. So a big kudos out to them for the good deed. I didn’t pull one in my box of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects, but they are pretty rare.
