Not in an eBay lot, just a single “buy it now” item on eBay. I snagged it as soon as I saw the difference in packaging. It wasn’t cheap, for a single pack with 2 ships, but it seems like it’s pretty rare even if the contents are just reprints of other ships.
I found the reference I was thinking of, in the Wikipedia article on the game:

Someone on Facebook mentioned that they remember getting a promo pack of some kind in a Swedish magazine. I remember something about a rare island that was only available in a European magazine, but I can’t find a mention of that island anywhere (and it’s hard to search on “Pirates CSG rare island”).

Matt replied to the topic Kickstarter/etc to buy rights to the game from NECA? in the forum Pirates CSG 1 year, 2 months ago
IMO the only way to do this would be to get an agreement/contract with NECA ahead of time to purchase the rights. Only then would you start a KS to raise the funds. If you just randomly started a KS to purchase something you have no idea if they even want to sell, I can’t imagine anyone backing it.
