Hi,

I am currently collecting Star Wars Vintage Action Figure Cardbacks.

If you have any available I would be grateful if you could list them here with prices.

Thanks

I've got three. Unfortunately for you, they are still connected to the bubbles with the figs inside. And I only have one of each of these three figs. No dupes. Sorry.

Yes I have tried ebay with some success. But I have also found success on Star Wars forums. The exception being this one. Never mind.

Sorry. This forum hasn't proven to be much of a boon for the collecting market. Too small a regular number of posters to really get into it. I tried selling some SW toys here and none of the deals went through.

Hey Jambe,
If you are just wanting to re-card figures, I make awesome repros of all of the original cards for fan use only of course. I even indent the punches. They look like the real thing. I also have a source for bubbles. If you are interested, let me know. A donation for ink and cardstock is all that I require. (and shipping of course)

You wouldn't have them posted on a website so we can look back over them and reminisce, would you?

Jambe Davdar have you ever gone to any toy shows? I usually find those a great source for sealed figures.

I saved all my original cardbacks back about 15-18 years ago.

But when we moved about 13 years ago, I lost track of every last one of them. My parents say they don't remember them ever getting thrown away, so I have to wonder where they went.

Yeah, I have visited toy fairs etc. But loose cardbacks are fairly hard to find as lots of people just have them sitting in their loft or they were thrown out altogther.

I have made a quick site of my cardbacks here

If any of you find any - let me know. I am willing to pay good prices.

Thanks
