Rare and desirable SKU on Figure Stand variant.

Here we present a first-release Ben Kenobi from 1978.  This unpunched 12 Back-A example is one we believe to be at the very top of its grade level.  The main imperfection identified on the card is light horizontal veining from the side of the card running approx. 1 inch toward the “W” in WARS.  The veining can be identified under the direct glare of light and does not run through to the reverse of the card.  The bubble showcasing a beautiful mint figure is crystal clear resulting in very strong display value.  No dings, dents, cracks, or lifting whatsoever.  Desirable vintage Kmart price tag (of $1.96!!!) further preserves the nostalgia.  Those looking for a beautiful first-release Ben need not look further. 

 With the Obi-Wan Kenobi series debuting soon on Disney+, we expect investors and collectors alike to battle it out on June 5th when this one hits the auction block.
