*Of the 10, 8 received a “Y” designation. 

 

Offered here is an original Beast Man on highly desirable first-release Test Market card. Front of card has various imperfections including a sticker tear in the upper corner as well as a horizontal crease that runs along the top of the plastic blister just above mid-card. No edge wear and great color and overall a well-presenting example. Clean reverse features no warranty and 8 original characters. Bubble, although tinted, retains perfect form and is free from dents, dings, and cracks. The bubble has received additional reinforcement by the experts at AFA. The Beast Man action figure is paired with the “Free” He-Man and the Power Sword mini comic  - both look great! This is the first time we have offered a TEST MARKET Beast Man in our auctions. With an extremely limited supply of only 10 AFA graded examples, we expect fireworks from collectors who have waited patiently on the sideline for this first-release piece to surface. Made in Taiwan. Graded 2023.  Encapsulated by AFA (70y, 70-80-85), #11731532
