Proofs are a very early print of a cardback used in the preproduction process for design or layout approvals. They are sought after by collectors because of their low population and because they can give insight into the decisions that were made from the design process all the way to production. Proofs were printed with multiple figures on a large sheet and then individually cut out.  Sometimes proofs are found that have not been die-cut from the sheet and have much of the white bordering around them. These are called hand-cut proofs. In this example we have a Series 1 / 9-Back hand-cut proof of Stalker in an 85 grade. The colors are vibrant and really pop without the figure and bubble. Own this iconic piece of G.I. Joe history!  Encapsulated by AFA (85), #11743258
