This Is Just Amazing

Buyback autographed cards are a really cool part of the hobby.  They give you the opportunity to have an original card (usually a rookie) autographed by the player.  I don’t know if there has ever been a better buyback card than the Michael Jordan 86-87 Fleer RC Auto #’ed/23.  You see one of these up for sale every now and then.  When they do popup for sale they usually sell well into the thousands.  In my opinion, this is one of the most influential buyback cards ever created.  Can you image if Mickey Mantle were still alive?  I wonder what a 1951 Bowman Mantle Autographed Buyback RC would sell for at auction?
