Highly desirable factory sealed original Battle Cat from 1984.  This MISB 12-back example was recently pulled directly from a factory sealed case and remains remarkably well preserved.  Similar to a canvas in texture, the box quality on this piece is simply amazing.  No colorbreak whatsoever along the edges and the factory tape is present and remains firmly intact on each end.  Clear window on the front (nearly all have yellowed) and rubber band wrapped perfectly around his helmet, this one is a stunner.  The piece was penalized severely for a blemish at the top of the window that we feel is minor and doesn’t detract much in regard to eye appeal.  The reverse is clean and white with the only culprit being an approx. 5 inch horizontal vein running along the bottom of the flap that can be seen when examined closely under direct lighting.  A piece that we feel presents far better than its assigned grade, we expect major of action on this lot.  Collectors are well aware that a case-fresh Battle Cat of this quality rarely comes to market.  Encapsulated by AFA (70, 80-70-90), #14622901
