Then I must say yes your every backlink counts, matter not when you have created that backlink during the sandbox period of your website or after the Sandbox.
Those who don’t know what is Google Sandbox? Then let me quickly tell you. Sandbox is nothing but a time duration; in this time, Google places a check on your site to measure your authenticity, genuineness, and consistency of your blog.
If you keep posting high-quality well-researched content, regularly update your articles, then Google will release your site from the Sandbox, and you will start ranking on different targetted keywords.
Many of you have noticed that after creating a fresh new blog, your pages do not rank in Google SERPs. Sandbox is the reason behind no ranks or traffic. As soon as Google satisfies with your website, it removes your site from Sandbox.
