Do you have a picture of this? I think I have the answer for you, but from just a bit of research, I don't think you're going to be too pleased.

From the looks of things, this isn't a short print. At least, it isn't yet. Some players just don't return all of their autos right off of the bat. My guess is that Mark Barron returned some of his sticker autos, but not all of them. This HAS happened before, so it's not entirely unheard of. So Topps produced some, packed them out live, and the rest were inserted as redemptions. If this is some sort of short print, Beckett hasn't caught wind of it yet, and they're generally pretty good about this. They have it just listed as his standard auto, BV 25. And they do have it listed as live, not a redemption.

If this is the case, the strange thing is this: for NOW, the redemptions are actually worth more. Topps is offering Blue Wave redemption packs with each redemption. That includes potential autos of Alfred Morris, so people are actually paying more for the redemptions than the live cards.

I think that the only way that this particular card ends up being something special is if there's something about it that I'm not initially seeing, OR if Topps can't produce the redemptions. That would mean that the cards that are live now end up as the only autos. But, if he's already been signing, I just don't see it happening.
