Highly sought-after square bubble Jawa variant on 12 Back-A card.  Card received a 75 subgrade in large part due to a vertical crease above the hangtab as well as a diagonal crease near the lower corner.  The reverse exhibits an approx. 2 inch vertical vein near the top corner as well as a horizontal vein at midpoint originating from the right edge.  Two very minor horizontal veins were also identified on back.  No edge wear or price tag residue on this one.  The ever important square bubble is crystal clear and retains perfect form showcasing the "Cloth Cloak" Jawa.  There is a bit of bubble lift and card detachment on the bottom corner but this appears to be held at bay by the AFA support bar so we don't expect the issue to worsen.  This piece is well known to be condition sensitive: the last quality square bubble A-Back to hit the market had a 60 card subgrade (70 overall) and sold for over $5,000 in November of last year.  Overall, this is a far superior example that we believe will receive a lot of attention from astute Star Wars collectors.  A rare opportunity to grab a scarce variant that is not seen often in 12 Back-A form. Encapsulated by AFA (75, 75-80-80), #16571516
