Some varieties are worth saving--others are not.
35 years ago, I grew Yellow Pear and loved the flavor, but in the past decade, none of the seeds I have tried produced anything worth growing. If anyone knows of a good Yellow Pear source, please share!
Not all modern varieties should be shunned. Sweet Million is a spectacular cherry tomato, both in flavor and productivity. It's a hybrid, but I have had them grow back as volunteers and yield a plant very much like the parent! I've given Sweet Million plants to people, and they uniformly rave about this variety.

Burpee apparently sells them. I did a search for “yellow pear tomato” and came up with a lot. I should have done “yellow pear tomato seeds”
