According to the current AFA population data, AFA 85 is the highest graded example. No 8-Back Man-At-Arms has been graded higher in the 20+ year history of AFA.

 

Ultra high-grade early release 8-back Man-At-Arms paired with the The Vengeance of Skeletor comic. Impressive “triple 85” example, this is the highest graded MAA we have ever offered. Front and back of card are nearly flawless and certainly deserving of the elite 85 subgrade. Clean bubble retains perfect form but does exhibit a light tint (we must note that it would likely receive a "y" designation if submitted for grading today) – see photos. The MAA action figure within stands perfectly upright with sealed weapon bag ideally positioned behind the legs.  His chest armor is correctly positioned and not covering his face as we have seen with other examples. An awesome early release in an unsurpassed grade.Encapsulated by AFA (85, 85-85-85), #10433485
