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!

Unpunched Sand People on 20 Back-A card from 1978. Imperfections on card front are minimal with the edgewear being the main culprit. No creases or veins identified. Reverse of card is very strong with only a few very light, almost imperceptible veins present. Bubble is clear with a minor dent found in the upper corner. Sand People action figure looks great with minimal toning to vinyl cape. A nice “triple 80” single-owner example available for the very first time!  Encapsulated by AFA (80, 80-80-80), #11330259
