Cardback Top Tips

Postby MightyMike » Fri Sep 28, 2018 10:40 am

Having accidently picked up a few Leia Boushh Cardback/Bubble I wondered if anyone had any tips on checking they are authentic?

All three are different size/corner shape is this normal? The cardback with the bubble is more of a matt finished compared to the other two

These are the first cards I've picked up in about 35 years, and I haven't spent a lot of money - I'm using it as a learning/reference point if I decide to go further into the cardback collecting

Nothing to worry about with those. Three different card backs so no problem with slight differences in cut or finish. Even the same issue carbacks can have differences depending on the factory they came from

Good luck adding to your Leia run

Unperforated punch & taller bubble - Taiwan would be a safe bet. ( & taller card)

Thanks for the replies - good to have a few reference cards

Yes the taller card is Taiwan

The other two cards are Hong Kong
