Part of the allure surrounding 2017-18 SP Authentic Hockey is the opportunity to pull what Upper Deck has deemed “The Ultimate Buyback Auto.” We are, of course, talking about the 2015-16 Connor McDavid Young Guns rookie card that has been “bought back” by Upper Deck, signed by McDavid, and randomly inserted into packs of 2017-18 SP Authentic Hockey.


With the buyback autograph limited to only 97 copies, we thought we’d take a stab at tracking down all 97 once they’ve been pulled from packs.

As of this writing, we’ve been able to verify that at least 59 of the 97 have been pulled with a handful of those being listed for sale. Verified sales have ranged between $2,875 -$3,885 as of May 24, 2018.

Take a peek at the ones we have verified as being pulled so far (as of August 13, 2019):
