Assuming that they are of equal condition and you really can't keep both then I would keep the ESB one. Just a personal preference for figures on there original release card. Do you really need what you would get back from selling one of them?

I'd agree. Figures look better on their film related card. 8)

For me it would be a tough choice, i really like the ESB backs, and tbh i would probably favour ESB; but i do like the Palitoy cards due to the fact that there is no logo over the picture.

It makes more sense to keep the figure on it's original release card.

Why did you buy it if you already had one?!! :? :lol:

Personally, like every one else I prefer figures on their original released card. 8)

because i wanted to regress my jedi cards to the original cards they were released on , it was only when i went to put the empire one in the star case did i realise it was palitoy.
i am going to sell the palitoy one though and keep the empire one :)
