Pop 3 AFA 85, none graded higher


Awesome early release Star Wars vehicle in unsurpassed grade.  This is just one of three in AFA 85 red label – there are none graded higher.  Photos of all six panels provided.  No color fade on any panel.  An outstanding display piece and one of the rarer high-grade vehicles in the genre.  Encapsulated by AFA (85), #18498824


**The tape has dried and detached along the side but AFA has assured us that they will recase upon request and include new stabilizer bars that cover the full side panels and will pin down the tape.  They have also assured us that the piece will retain red label status, if submitted.  

***It has been over 4 years since an AFA 85 example has hit the auction block.  The last one sold for for $19,989 in the summer of 2019.

Est. $20,000 - $30,000
