Buybacks

Each Hobby box is expected to yield an autograph, game-used, or game-used combo card from a previously-released Fleer/Skybox product that had been repurchased (allegedly) and seeded into National Pastime packs. There are over 1000 different cards and listing them all would be pointless.

Each Buyback is hand-numbered and supposed to have had a National Pastime logo embossed on the card; however not all Buybacks were embossed. In addition, some cards were serial-numbered twice: once by machine and again by hand. The machine numbered cards were serial-numbered at the time of the product's original release. The hand-numbering took place for National Pastime.



Buyback 1959 Fleer Ted Williams Autographs

Fleer purchased an entire autographed 1959 Fleer Ted Williams set and randomly inserted all 80 cards into National Pastime packs. Each card was inserted into a penny sleeve along with a corresponding Certificate of Authenticity. In addition, Fleer randomly inserted an additional twenty-five unsigned 1959 Fleer Ted Williams cards.
