Awesome first release 12 Back-A Sand People.  This unpunched example sports a stellar card with no creases or edge wear.  There are no veins on the front but the back does have a horizontal vein at midpoint.  The bubble is crystal clear and retains perfect form.  The punch at the top is ever so slightly pushed in so there is an outside chance it could fall through, but highly unlikely.  The culpit on this one is the vinyl cape discoloration on the sides.  It brings an otherwise exceptional figure down to a subgrade of 70.  Overall, a first release piece with strong display value that we feel presents better than its assigned grade.  Encapsulated by AFA (75, 80-85-70), 11732784
