Here are 3 of my Fetts. The 30 back polity one is a bit rough but hard to come by so I'm happy enough just to have an example of one. The next one looks like a bubble I attached to the card back. I really can't remember where this one is from or if the bubble still has it's original seal as i'm sure i would have re taped the gun to the bubble if I could have gotten to it. Oh well, one of life's mysteries!

The last one is a bubble fail and I've cut a Top Loader to support it as the bubble is only just hanging on. It's nice that the tape is still attached to the bubble as you tend to see these unstuck often due to the shape of the blaster.

Three terrific examples Ian! Boba Fett's getting so expensive to buy as a MOC, and even if you can afford the cost, some cards like the 30 back so rarely come up for sale that reseals and rescues like your Top Loader card are a brilliant way of increasing the global 'pool' of these rare cards, plus they are a brilliant way of acquiring one on a budget. And besides, you know me, I love a good reseal so thanks for sharing yours :-)
