I knew this would happen eventually. Topps has officially started making hand print cards. While I think this is cool and a concept I had thought about over the past couple of years, I have to admit that it is a little odd. These cards are being inserted as box toppers in the new 2012 Topps Archives release. They are oversized and only available of one player, Cal Ripken Jr. Here is a video of Ripken "signing".
I think it is odd that they would have him do this with a batting glove on, but still cool. I am not a huge fan of the design of this particular card, but I do think it is a cool concept. Be on the lookout for these unique cards in your box of 2012 Topps Archives Baseball.
