Incredible ultra high-grade AFA 90 example of early release 1978 Palitoy Star Wars Darth Vader.  This 12 Back-B example is as good as it gets.  The front of the card is unpunched, no veins, no edgewear, no bubble dents – flawless.  The reverse is what brought the card subgrade “down” to an 85.  We identified two veins – one approx. 2.5 inches from the middle (left side) and another below that at the corner under the Palitoy logo.  As veteran collectors know, these are the most minor of imperfections and a chance to grab an absolutely gorgeous ultra high-grade AFA 90 Star Wars Vader from 1978 doesn’t come often.  This one will highlight even the most advanced collection and we expect top collectors to battle it out when it hits the auction block.  Encapsulated by AFA (90, 85-90-90), #16747623
