That is one of the things I always wonder, why still you can find vintage MIB vehicles still to an affordable price and the only answer I find is they were produced by the millions all around the world.

Very nice condition card too for that Luke once you flatten it out.

Iv'e heard years ago that introducing a little steam to put some moisture back in the card before you flatten it out can help bring it back to it's normal form, i'm not sure if that can damage the colours in it or not though.
Chavs are easily startled, but they will soon be back, and in greater numbers

The first Kenner 20 backs also had weapons on their hands as well.
I believe that the weapons were taped to the bubble on Kenner cards from ESB onwards?

I've always loved the slightly grimy retail look of cards like this with all the offer stickers and catalogue/ shop price tags, they for me, become more of an art piece and more attractive for it, and tell more of a story, but then I am a bit mad :D nice pick up apack

I also love the price stickers especially the Mervyns which is why I picked these up. I have an imperial commander cardback with at least 11 different price stickers on it.
