These autographs are a mix of on-card and sticker applied autographs. For example, BSAP-BH Billy Hamilton cards are signed on-card but BSAP-TRE Tony Renda are stickers. As a general rule collectors favor on-card autographs. In past Bowman Sterling products prospect autographs were all stickers. A box of Sterling is expensive, and it's nice that Topps is making a push toward making more collectible cards.  Certain aspects of the product will be cut back when companies move to on-card autographs. Past Sterling products had box loaders and veteran laden content. The box loaders in 2012 are much harder to get and there isn't any veteran cards (aside from some scarce Nickname autographs). No jersey cards in 2012 either so that is where Topps was able to save some money and apply that to obtaining on-card signatures of many of the prospect signers.
