FS: R5-D4 Proof Cards & Cromalins

Postby olisuds » Thu Sep 13, 2018 9:37 pm

I'm planning to keep hold of the last 2 proof cards (ESB 41 back & ESB 45 back) for a couple of weeks for a friend who would like them but not yet able to commit. If anyone would like 2nd option on either or both of these then let me know.

----------------------------------------------------------

These are mostly all one of a kind pieces for a very popular "first 20" Star Wars wave character. Outside of this run there is close to nothing 2d pre production for R5-D4 other than your relatively common Revenge proof cards. Items like this almost never come up for sale.

I'm happy to share further pictures and details of provenance to anyone that is interested. I have 100% positive feedback on eBay, Rebelscum, TIG and SWFUK and have sold many other prototypes and pre production items over the years all of which come from very reliable sources and have strong provenance. Please PM me or drop me an email at olisuds@hotmail.com

Prices are fixed. Open to considering payment plans. Payment in GBP by PayPal gift (otherwise add 4.5% for fees). Shipping by Parcelforce Global Express (48 hours).

ESB:
ESB 41 back sample card (1 of 2 known) £4,000
ESB 45 back proof card (1 of 2 known) £4,000
ESB 47 back sample card (1 of 1 known) SOLD
ESB 48a back sample card (1 of 1 known) SOLD

Revenge:
RevOTJ offerless cromalin (1 of 1 known) SOLD
RevOTJ 48 back proof card (1 of approx 50 known) SOLD
RevOTJ of the Jedi 48 back name plate mock-up (1 of 1 known) SOLD

Return:
ROTJ offerless cromalin (1 of 1 known) SOLD
ROTJ 65 back proof card (1 of 1 known) SOLD

POTF:
POTF 92 back sample card (1 of 1 known) SOLD

Additional info:

ESB 41 back proof card: Only 2 known examples and the other is locked up in another big proof card collection. This is the earliest proof card known to exist for R5-D4.
ESB 45 back proof card: Only 2 exist for R5-D4 and the other is part of a small uncut sheet.

Wow!

That's my old 4-LOM 47 back card there :) I bought it straight from John Kellerman in 2004 and it is a gorgeous piece.

I did indeed. Payment plan he wanted was too long for me unfortunately. I think he's working on some expensive first shot run.

If I don't find a buyer for the whole run I'll probably try splitting into lots.

Yep but my payment plan would need to be far longer than Brian's. :D
