Proofs are a very early print of a cardback used in the pre production process for design or layout approvals. They are sought after by collectors because of their typically low population and because they can give insight to the decisions that were made in the design process all the way to production. In this example, we have a Series 7 / 62-Back proof of Shogun April in an amazing CAS 85 grade. The colors are vibrant and really pop without the figure and bubble. One thing great about Shogun cards is there is no front nameplate, so this can be displayed with any Shogun collector's run! Also, the weapons explanation on the card front mentions "Special Metallized Weapons" yet April's production card said "Special Shogun Weapons" so this was an example before they had hammered out the final production text. Own this iconic piece of TMNT history!  Encapsulated by CAS (85), #10186314
