We are thrilled to offer the most exciting Boba Fett on card the hobby has seen in quite some time.  Our exquisite unpunched example showcases Fett on a rarely seen 20 Back-B card (not the typical 21 Back as we’re used to seeing).  The Canadian release saw Fett debut on 20 Back card via Kenner Canada in 1978.  The front of the card features both French and English.  The reverse prominently displays “La Guerre Des Etoiles” across the top with bilingual writing throughout.  Interestingly there is no photo of the Boba Fett action figure leading one to hypothesize that he was a last-minute inclusion.  The condition of this piece is simply outstanding.  The colors are bold both front and back.  No creases, no veins, no edge wear.  Simply spectacular!  It’s important to note that the bubble is typically a major issue with this release – but not this example!  Here we have a crystal-clear bubble that retains perfect form and is firmly attached to the card with no lift.  The Boba Fett action figure within looks amazing with weapon taped to the side of the bubble.  Boba Fett collectors and crossover collectors alike will certainly be impressed with this offering.  A truly stunning collectible that is sure to please the winning bidder.  Encapsulated by AFA (85, 85-85-85), #1444453

 

Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000
