Key character and pop culture icon that appeals to both Star Wars enthusiasts and crossover collectors alike.  Here we have an original Darth Vader 12-Back from 1978 in AFA 85.  This one comes freshly cased by AFA in March 2023.  The card is strong, with the only blemish of note being a very faint outline of a price tag sticker over the star in the upper corner.  The reverse exhibits a vein near the center at about 7 o’clock.  It’s important to note that the vein does not run through to the front of the card.  Otherwise outstanding.  Bubble and figure look awesome both coming in at impressive 85 subgrades.  There is usually a bidding war when early release Vaders in AFA 85 hit the market, and on April 2nd, we expect no different.  Encapsulated by AFA (85, 80-85-85), 11122320
