According to the current AFA population data, only 1 8-Back Beast Man has been graded higher in the 20+ year history of AFA.


Ultra high-grade early release 8-back Beast Man paired with the The Vengeance of Skeletor comic. Impossibly difficult to find in elite AFA 85 grade, this unpunched beauty is sure to grab the attention of high-grade MOTU collectors. The front of the card is impeccable, completely free of creases, veins, and edgewear.  Imperfections include centering, from an imperfect factory cut, and a bit of spotting to the reverse. Clean bubble retains perfect form but does exhibit a tint (we must note that it would receive a "y" designation if submitted for grading today) – see photos. The Beast Man action figure within stands perfectly upright with sealed weapon bag ideally positioned behind the legs. An awesome early release villain in a stellar grade, the best example we have offered in our auctions. Encapsulated by AFA (85, 80-85-85), #13066123


Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000
