Exceptional example of Sand People on 12 Back-B card from Kenner’s 1978 release.  This unpunched example is outstanding, as strong an AFA 80 as you will see.  Light indention at the edge of the white price tag square and two very small, almost imperceptible veins on the reverse are the only imperfections we could find on the card.  No price tag sticker residue, no creases, no edgewear.  The bubble is crystal clear and retains nearly perfect form.  The is a tiny depression at the tip on the bottom of the stem (likely factory) as well as two similar light depressions on the top of the bubble at the back near the corners.  Very minor.  The figure looks great as well as the vinyl cape.  We’ve seen examples of discoloration of the cape but that is not the case here.  Overall, a very strong AFA 80.  The winner will be quite pleased with this one.  Encapsulated by AFA (80+, 80-80-80), #18643434
