Ultra high-grade factory sealed Battle Ram from Series One.  This is the very first AFA 85 Battle Ram 12-Back that we have offered in our auctions.  An 8-Back Battle Ram in AFA 85 was sold in our Winter Auction earlier this year for a record $20,920.  One would assume such a sale would bring the 85s out of the woodwork.  None have appeared.  There has not been a single AFA 85 Battle Ram to surface since – in any marketplace (8-Back or 12-Back).  We are pleased to present the first AFA 85 example since that record sale.  Our offering is strong.  Similar to a canvas in texture, the box quality on this piece is simply amazing.  Outstanding display value from all sides.  Dual MASTERS logos brand the Frank Frazetta-style artwork on front.  The reverse is crisp and still very white.  A bit of edgewear along the top makes up the majority of the imperfections.  An outstanding example overall, and one rarely seen in the coveted AFA 85 grade.  Approximately 13 x 6.5 x 12 inches.  Encapsulated by AFA (85), #16986937
