    It's possible, maybe likely, that cards with less than 10 copies weren't all serialized, I just have a hard time believing these are actual buy backs and not extra stock that was sitting in some known quantity in the "vault."

    That's pretty legit thinking
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    The sell sheet says only the autographed buybacks, the buyback autographs, and the 2015 stamped cards are numbered to 10.

    Even the autographs look different!

    I'm still missing some of the Jason Castro buybacks.

    [MENTION=4155]Bane50[/MENTION] are those 1/1s identical?
    [MENTION=2759]Therion[/MENTION] have you actually seen the buybacks that you don't have? Especially for the early Ginter buybacks (e.g., 2006 and 2007), which seem to be rarer than the later ones, if you haven't seen them they might not exist. I'm operating under the assumption that Topps just bought back (or pulled out of the basement) a bunch of cards and stamped them, without making a point of trying to make complete buyback sets.

    Both are from eBay. One completed, one current.

    I've seen one of them in a giant lot that I wasn't willing to drop $40 to get one card for. Nothing yet on the others.

    I believe I saw about 5 Canseco within 2 weeks or so of them being released and NONE since. I, too would like to know how many there are of each, but Topps is really ... REALLY being tight lipped about these sorts of things now. Ugh!

    Still only four Dawsons have hit eBay, or I should say I have only seen four on eBay and I have picked all four of them up and they were all different.

    Don't forget, a bunch more were inserted into the Ginter X product that Topps released online. They said they "held back" some of the print run of all the inserts, relics, and autos for that release. I've cracked about 36 boxes of it and have pulled an average of 2 full size buybacks and 1 framed buyback per box. Only 2 were from 2007 and NONE were from 2006.

    A lot more may still be waiting to to be found and listed in these that people just got in...

    Yeah, I saw the answer they gave on the 2015 Topps Archives checklist. Can't believe a multi million dollar company just release whatever they want without an inventory.

    The Thomas cookie jar has dried up too...an '08 Framed sold for $15 BIN a couple months ago, but I didn't see it in time.

    I have some stars I should probably list.
