A very nice example of the beloved R2-D2 with gold collectors coin from the desirable 1985 Droids series.  This popular piece showcases a strong card with only minor blemishes: horizontal vein along top of bubble that doesn’t show through to the reverse, tiny vertical crease above the hangtab, and light price tag sticker residue at the top of the tower.  Still, the card is very clean and exhibits great color, no edgewear and classic artwork, and certainly has earned its nice subgrade of 80.  The bubble and figure come in even stronger with 85 subgrades.  Overall, a great piece with highly desirable subgrades of all 80 and above.  R2D2 and Droids collectors will undoubtedly pay close attention when this one hits the auction block.  Encapsulated by AFA (80y, 80-85-85), #13010158
