Yep, they're real autographs.
Unfortunately, all the card companes have gone this route (players sign stickers/paper, and it's put onto/into the card) instead of having the actual cards signed, since it's cheaper and easier. I think they look ugly like that and hopefully they'll realize that they have less value to collectors and people would pay more for real autpgraphed cards. I don't mind if it's Babe Ruth or something, because obviously he can't sign any new cards, but come on - dont be so cheap about it. I know the head product developer for UD Basketball, so maybe I should mention something. I'm sure they know already, but if enough people complain.........
