Re: Response to Claims

As has been said, Frank went above and beyond on the whole Baggie thing and was from some quarters treated very unfairly and I felt that was completely out of order. Frank is one of the most honest, genuine and decent people I have had the pleasure to "meet" on this forum and underpinned ...

Re: YPS star wars comic ?

I don’t collect this sort of thing, so have never looked at an original and a repo up against each other, sorry.

Re: VALUATION REQUEST BOBA FETT + COIN

Boba Fett was never released on a POTF card, there was a toy fair mock up http://theswca.com/index.php?action=disp_item&item_id=47827 but this is not that rare piece. As Stubbs has said this is a reproduction, card back and bubble kits are available on eBay for £12.50 and is only worth what some...
