Only 5 in the population report across all grades, none higher.

Quite possibly the best example in the world.

 

In 1978, figures for the Italian market were made by Harbert and they released their own set of 12 backs with bubble layout and art very similar to their Kenner counterparts, yet the Harbert logo is prominently displayed on the front and back of these cardback designs.

Beautiful unpunched card front and back with no creases, veins, or edgewear.  This example appears case fresh.  The only imperfection we could find was a faint scratch under the S in Stellari when viewed under the direct glare of light.  Crystal clear bubble retains perfect shape and displays beautiful figure within.  Overall, a showstopper of a piece that will be nearly impossible to top. Encapsulated by AFA (80+, 80-80-85), #11881393
