Rarer cards?????

Post by Wolfman79 »

Guys I'm relatively new to the Palitoy specifics.

I'm wondering, are the 41 and 30 backs generally the rarer/more expensive mocs.
Would it be fair to say they are so even compared to 12 backs in some cases.

Cheers

It varies by card- a 30 back Lando is common vs a 41 back whereas a 30 back Fett is extremely rare and the 41 is comparatively common. 45a Threepio is another very tough one that comes to mind. There are no hard and fast rules unfortunately

Cheers. Helps a lot.
And makes perfect sence.
Most resent confusion came from the price of a 30 back rebel soldier vs a 41 back.
The 41 back being nearly 3 times the price of the 30.

Yeah there's really no logic with cardback value. Some are more desirable than others like a debut card, but in terms of rarity or price it entirely depends on supply and demand. A trilogo 70B Nikto is worth about £40, a 70C is probably worth 10x that.
