This item is “hobby fresh” and part of a single-owner collection made available for the very first time. In the late 1970’s, our consignor was a manager at a West Coast department store chain called Fedco. With Star Wars mania already underway, he secured a handful of action figures from the back of the store before they hit shelves (and before they were punched and price tagged). He had the foresight to keep the collection stored away and sealed in their original packages for almost 45 years. The result is a fantastic, fresh-to-market collection, most with amazing color – all unpunched and without stickers!

Gorgeous Han Solo on 12 Back-C.  The front of the card is absolutely stunning, we believe the equivalent of a “90/95” subgrade. It’s flawlessly unpunched, with no creases, veins, or edgewear. No price tag sticker, no surface wear. Amazing color! Impeccable – as strong of a card front as you will ever see! Imperfections on the reverse include a bit of surface wear in addition to three minor horizontal veins. Bubble is crystal clear and retains perfect form all-around. Weapon is firmly attached to side of the bubble by original tape. Han action figure stands perfectly upright. No frosting on the figure whatsoever. This is the first “large head” Han that we have ever offered in our auctions. A sensational single-owner example available for the very first time!  Encapsulated by AFA (80+, 80-85-85), #11733175
