Certain items were only available for a certain period of time, then were either modified or removed from the drop pool. Others were only available through specific leagues or race seasons. These items are now only obtainable from players who possess existing copies.
League-specific base items
In some challenge leagues, base items are created which do not drop in permanent leagues. One way of acquiring them is to corrupt unique items and gain corrupted rare items then use vendor recipes to gain back a unidentified rare item.
Talismans can be obtained in the permanent leagues as Safehouse rewards that linked to Thane Jorgin the Banished. Certain divination cards also granted random talismans, as well as some Delve rewards chest. They can also drop from monsters or chests in Legion encounters.
League-specific unique items
In most challenge leagues, unique items are created which do not drop in permanent leagues. These items can sometimes be found in maps by using Zana's Map Device. Also the following methods may allow league-specific unique items as random drops (except that some items may only drop from a specific league-boss):

Certain unique items have had their names changed. Those items that were obtained before the name change was implemented will forever retain the old name.
Some item affixes were changed or removed from the drop pool altogether for balance reasons.
Certain items have been removed from the drop table, usually because they were replaced with another item. These items can only be obtained by trading with other players in a permanent league.
Each race and player-versus-player season offers rewards of existing items with alternate art for reaching certain point breakpoints within the season. Event-specific rewards (and alternate art counterparts of these) are also offered for placing well in the race or the season. All rewards are placed into remove-only tabs that can be viewed from any league, but once removed, they remain in the league they were taken into and cannot be transferred to other leagues. These rewards cannot be viewed or removed from the stash in temporary leagues until four weeks have passed since the beginning of the league.
