Re: Tonigate air date on Fake Britain

Well done, Jason. This is the best way to spread the word. It's a pity you couldn't name the faker, AFA or UKG, but it was clearly due to legal reasons... All vintage collectors should be grateful to you. There's no need to say we also saw the video here in Spain, and now more people are aware of th...

No, they don't. Toy Toni fake cards just have a slick seal. He sold a lot of ROTJ cards with waffle pattern, but those are out of doubt.

I'm sorry but I don't have the answer to your second question.

Re: What a twat!

I'm sure this guy will burn in hell!!! :twisted: What was the problem with that Ree-Yees??? It seemed to be in good shape... I think we all agree that a figure on its card is a figure on its card.
