Highly desirable Series 3 first release Storm Shadow on 32-back peach file card.  This one is exceptional in regard to the color of the figure combined with the overall condition of the piece.  Veteran collectors are well aware of just how difficult it is to find an early release Storm Shadow that hasn’t yellowed.  This one maintains a great off-white color free from the typical yellowing of one or more of the head, arms, chest, and legs.  The front of the card is virtually blemish free.  The reverse exhibits veining in the top corners, but we consider this minor when evaluating the overall condition.  Figure and weapon bubbles are firmly attached to the card and are of perfect form without issues.   Waist and legs of the figure exhibited no movement whatsoever when tested.  An outstanding piece, an iconic piece, and one certainly deserving of the LCG 5% Eye Appeal designation!  Encapsulated by AFA (80+, 80-85-85), #11272655
