As a huge fan of 1980′s – early 1990′s Michael Jordan cards I think the idea of buy-back autograph cards is absolutely fantastic! For those who don’t know – Upper Deck has been purchasing cards from the secondary market (cards from personal collections), sending them to players to autographed then inserting them (or redemption cards) straight into packs. So anyone could own one of these rare pieces of memorabilia for this price of a pack of cards.

There were almost no authentic autos available in packs during the era I enjoy most – this idea fills this void perfectly. The possibility of pulling an already rare early card that MJ held and signed out of a standard pack of cards is very inviting. Due to their rarity they are also obviously very valuable additions to your collection.

So for your viewing pleasure, here are some of my favourite buy-back autos.

Please note: this article has been updated to include buy back autos from the 11-12 UD Fleer Retro set.

Happy collecting.
