The most popular G.I. Joe ever released: Snake Eyes with Timber.  This nearly 40 year old Series 4 classic is an offerless issue with peach file card.  The card is clean front and back with nice color and no major issues.  Blemishes on front include a light horizonal vein through the red in the GI Joe logo.  The back exhibits a light horizontal vein through Lady Jaye to Shipwreck as well as a very light vein next to the Proof of Purchase at midcard.  The figure and weapon bubble are firmly attached to the card.  Upon close examination we discovered small hole at the bottom corner of the front of the figure bubble.  It’s the size of a pinhole and appears to be a perfect circle so there is a good chance it’s always been present and was graded as such.  The Snake Eyes figure exhibited light movement at the waist when tested but remains firmly intact and secure within the bubble.  Overall, a great looking piece and a cornerstone of 1980’s nostalgia.  Snake Eyes is always a popular figure and we expect a lot of eyeballs on this one leading up to July 16th.  Encapsulated by AFA (80, 80-85-85), #1337164
