Re: When were your golden years?

Re: High res images of card backs

You won't find any reproduction that's anywhere near as good as the real thing.

Re: Card images you think could have been better

Love the Leia Hoth cardbacks (both photos) but I just don’t like the figure, too masculine

Re: Vintage SW is still affordable - £50 or less MOCs latest acquisitions

Re: Toy Toni Boba Fett....

I would say that's a legit used cardback based on the prong gaps at the bottom and the strength of the seal
