Hello Sarah,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Is there anywhere on the card where it says that Topps guarantees the authenticity of the signature?

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'm happy to help.

Nowadays, it's getting very hard to resell autographed items without authentication. So it's very often included.

In this case, this was a special 2013 series issued by Topps, with the autographs already on the cards. For that reason, they also included the statement of authenticity on the card.

The value is around $110.

Please let me know if I can help further.
