Amazing boot fair find and Carl, nice Hoth Rebel 8)

Not bought much at all recently, but won this at the recent Astons auction after forgetting I'd bid on it. Was advertised as having a bubble lift at the bottom and some biro marks. Arrived this morning and I was very pleased to realise it was pencil and not biro. Went out and bought a new rubber and the pencil came off really well. There is just a faint imprint left.

The bubble only lifts a couple of mm at the bottom, so the figure and footer have never left the bubble. Not many large head Hans around on a Palitoy 12-back. VERY happy with him!

I was lucky to pick this up in a lot recently. Quite a rare card I believe? I'm not sure its a good idea to be starting a square cardback run though!

Nice one, probably worth three figures even in that condition

Cazza, fantastic find! A Palitoy 12 back large head Han is a real rarity in any condition, and that one's cleaned up a treat. Congratulations!

Wow, that large head Han is a find and a half, as Andy says, a rarity in any condition. Is the bubble on this different from the small head too?

Well done mate :)

NFS. I just received this beauty in the post today, it’s a British pyjama top, with some stunning artwork. There’s no label or trademark info other than a TM below the Star Wars logo, but it’s likely that it was made for Marks & Spencer.
