Re: More AFA Preferential Grading

Whilst I in no way want to condone Erics behaviour or the ridiculous prices he charges and agree this has probably been over graded, it is wrapped in cellophane which I think is making it look a lot worse than it actually is. If you look closely there is a small crease in the box but the cellophane ...

Re: FS: R5-D4 Proof Cards & Cromalins Run

If I don't find a buyer for the whole run I'll probably try splitting into lots.

Re: FS: R5-D4 Proof Cards & Cromalins Run

I did indeed. Payment plan he wanted was too long for me unfortunately. I think he's working on some expensive first shot run.

Re: Carded Power Droid 21b Disaster

Very odd how this could happen if the card slid in easily and there were a couple mm gap between card and rail. Has the card warped since you put it in? Was there any chance it had been resealed possibly or perhaps you just hadn't noticed the damage? It looks like the bubble has lifted cleanly so pe...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

I was very surprised they didn't go higher. Typically in the past unused cardbacks have sold for around 40-50% of the equivalent proof card value although more recently I've often seen them sold for similar prices to proof cards which seems crazy.

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

In the lot of 13000 unused cardbacks that Toni acquired after the Palitoy factory was cleared, 45B's are the earliest card listed. To me this indicates earlier cards were assembled in HK as none of the loose cards have surfaced. All of the Palitoy 41 back cards have a K or S factory code on them to...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Nice buys Oli. I myself believe that only the first production run was assembled in HK, and that latter lines ,including some 12 backs ,20 back and 41/45 back logo'd cards were assembled in the UK. Part of me thinks that they all were, but that's up for discussion. It doesn't make any sense to ship...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Thanks Jason, great info and research. I should have known you'd have the details on this kind of thing. So the cards produced by Palitoy seem to be quite limited to some 45 back, 65 back and what about tri Logo? Therefore I'd guess the available pre production material was quite limited. Although I...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Great thanks Jason that's really helpful. So trying to piece this together, cards up to and including 45a were produced in Hong Kong. Were they assembled there too or sent to the UK to be assembled? And 45b and onwards (excluding some anomolies) were produced in the UK at Lithographic printers that ...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Yes I’m familiar with Jason’s awesome guide. Nothing on how the cards were produced though as far as I can see.

Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Hi All, I'm looking for info to help me better understand the cardback production process for Palitoy and overseas for Clipper, General Mills etc. Whilst I have a reasonable understanding of the Kenner pre production process for cardbacks I'd like to understand how Palitoy produced their card backs....

FS: R5-D4 Proof Cards & Cromalins Run

I have decided to part with my R5-D4 proof card and cromalin run. I have had a lot of interest in several of the individual pieces but would prefer to sell them as an entire run or at least sell the cromalins and proof cards together as lots if possible. I will consider this before I break up the ru...

I had been wondering that one myself? Keen to hear some thoughts on it.
