FS: R5-D4 Proof Cards & Cromalins Run

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

I have decided to part with my R5-D4 proof card and cromalin run. I have had a lot of interest in several of the individual pieces but would prefer to sell them as an entire run or at least sell the cromalins and proof cards together as lots if possible. I will consider this before I break up the run and sell the pieces seperately.

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. Will look at options to buy the entire run or proof cards and cromalins as lots before I consider splitting up. Open to considering payment plans. Payment in GBP by PayPal gift (otherwise add 4.5% for fees). Shipping by Parcelforce Global Express (48 hours).

Proofs Cards:
£40,000
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) £5,500
ESB 48a back sample card (1 of 1 known) £5,500

RevOTJ 48 back proof card (1 of approx 50 known) £1,200
RevOTJ of the Jedi 48 back name plate mock-up (1 of 1 known) £3,300
ROTJ 65 back proof card (1 of 1 known) £5,500
POTF 92 back sample card (1 of 1 known) £11,000

Cromalins: £22,000
RevOTJ offerless cromalin (1 of 1 known) £12,000
ROTJ offerless cromalin (1 of 1 known) £10,000

Additional info:

The Revenge Cromalin and ROTJ Cromalin both originated from Tom Neiheisel and have each had 1 other owner before me. These are both 1 of a kind and in total are 2 of the 3 known cromalins. The 3rd and only other cromalin is the POTF which also came from Tom and is very much locked up in a big off the radar collection. The Revenge name plate mock up also came from Tom and is of course 1 of a kind and represents the change from the abbreviated R5-D4 to the phonetical Arfive-Defour as well as the change in copyright status from TM to C. The POTF proof card is the only POTF proof card for R5-D4 in any format. Not even a mock up exists. The only other POTF piece is the cromalin mentioned above. The 65 back proof card is the only ROTJ proof card known for R5-D4. The ESB 48 back proof card like all other ESB 48 backs is 1 of a kind. They are only known to exist for about half the characters. This is also the only offerless ESB proof card for R5-D4. Along with the 65 Back and POTF proof cards these are all the offerless proof cards known to exist for R5-D4. There are no others. The ESB 47 back proof card like all other ESB 47 backs is one of a kind (perhaps 2-1b has 2 known). ESB 45 back proof cards are usually the more abundant ESB proof cards. However only 2 exist for R5-D4 and the other known example is part of a small uncut sheet. The 41 back proof card is 1 of 2 known examples and the other is locked up in another big proof card collection. Outside of this run and the relatively common Revenge proof card, only the following exist: POTF cromalin, 1 other 41 back, 1 other 45 back which is part of a small sheet and an ESB 48c which hasn't been seen since Steve Denny sold it at C2 back in 2002.

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
