I was wondering if anyone had an idea on the value of a 2001 Topps Heritage Willie Mays Autoproof 1952 Topps Buyback was? I have one and got it graded a couple years back (BVG 4). Couldn't find a price in the Beckett book and wanted to know if anyone had any ideas of what it would fetch in auction. Thanks!

Why is it graded by BVG when it's a 2001 card? Probably no pricing because because of print run of 25 or less. Still wondering why BVG.
Sounds like its an original 1952 card, just with the buyback stamp on it?  I had one not this old of Ernie Banks before, it is an original vintage card, that is a buyback by Topps and stamped and released in Heritage or Archive sets over the years.  I'm guessing BVG was used due to the card kinda being vintage mostly....i guess??  I always wondered the same thing with my Banks...like do most collectors consider it an original and vintage, or more of a 1 of 1 modern card.

I can only speak for myself obviously but I would consider it a vintage card. If they put any kind of stamp/serial number/etc on it, I would still consider it a vintage card but annoyed that they put a stamp on it.

I don't recall who made the set, I think it was Topps, but someone made a modern set made to look like 2014/15 Cracker Jack. They randomly inserted original CJ cards into the boxes and I was lucky enough to pull one. Thankfully, they didn't put any kind of stamp on the thing and left it alone.
