Holy Stamped Buybacks Batman!

This past weekend I spent a little bit of time opening a pair of 2015 Topps Update Hobby boxes.  I should have ended the break with 4 buybacks.  I know that the odds on the boxes are approximate and they can run a little bit hot, or cold, and sometimes as collectors we walk away with a little more or less of something.  

Well, a little more would probably not be totally accurate in terms of beating the odds on the Buyback cards in my boxes...Here's a look at my haul, 11 of them came out of one box......











and my best Buyback card has to be the best Buyback card that I have pulled.  Great card and it is in great condition too......


I have seen other collectors pull really cool Buyback cards, but I never seem to land any of them.  It appears that I finally caught up a little bit this weekend.

  1. That last one is one of the nicest cards I have seen stamped!

    I love buy backs. I may be the only collector that does.

    1. I know other collectors who love the Buybacks. Like all cards, somebody likes them. I just wish they didn't have the stamp.

  2. If that HR leaders buyback is for trade or sale please let me know. It would look great in my McCovey collection!
