WTB Palitoy ESB 45AD Darth Vader Cardback

Looking for a Palitoy ESB 45AD Darth Vader Cardback.

Condition isn't of great importance, obviously the nicer the better but would be happy with nameplate cut etc.

Thanks.

Re: Show of your truly rare items

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 8 Star Wars Figures for 99p Pack Research Findings

What makes more sense is that these were put together by Palitoy and that Woolies may have been the only major retailer to pick these up and sell them.
