I agree the autograph ruins the card. Such a shame, but it's not a mis-weapon card. That's the French Tri-Logo Yak Face which comes with the different style of blister which usually yellows, and usually also has a black palace blaster packed in, unlike the 'regular' Tri-logo Yak which comes with nowt ;-)

It is a shame but might give someone the opportunity to get a discount yak moc and you never know, the scribble might come off with a bit of elbow grease

Looking at the picture of signing looks like it was done back in the day.

I think in the bargain bin days when paying peanuts for Mocs, at the time you wouldn't think twice about the chance of an autograph investment would have been way off the radar, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

I have seen threads in the past where if your careful and use the right method you can remove autos, but I don't think I'd chance it with this one.

Good point that looks like an old signing, and Yak Face ( so iv'e heard ) was a cheapo budget MOC back in the day too, kind of like buying a Nikto. :shock:

If it's value back then was the same as today maybe it would have never got signed.

some people still think signing a moc increases its value, and I bet they will be the ones bidding on this. It will still fetch good money I reckon, shame it was signed though.

I can see why this would piss collectors off. For me I would be happy with that example for the right price. :lol: I wander if anyone has a complete MOC collection signed, now that would be cool.

I’ll start out by clarifying I wouldn’t get a vintage MOC signed before throwing myself to the lions and saying I would have absolutely no problem with buying one that has been signed already

Absolutely fair!
Would you ever pay a premium for it though? Same as unsigned or value it lower Carl?

I’d be okay at FMV if I couldn’t get it across that it was devalued to most, potentially FMV plus say the £20 that most graphs would’ve cost but that would be it.
I did actually try and buy an autographed Bossk Trilogo 12 months or so ago which was a bit of a beater but the guy didn’t think much to my valuation :lol:
Having seen where it ended up he probably got double for it

This is a lesson to read the description first :lol:

Seeing as it’s cracked at the bottom I’ll revise that to £857.68
