    Need help/ advice/ info on completing my ROTJ carded collection

    Last week I completed my 21 carded star wars figure run. I have about 20 ESB's moc's to go (no rush). I need just one ROTJ carded figure to complete the ROTJ run which includes alternate photo cardbacks. For the life of me, I cannot find a Emperor on an offerless card with a clear bubble. I passed on one with an offer a while back. I like the Anakin offer ROTJ's. Should I break down and purchase a common yellow bubble Emperor and have it be my only visibly yellowed bubble MOC?? I have a few others that would grade yellow, but that look clear to me.

    Thoughts? Yes, I am a buyer too! This is more than a WTB post though. Why is this figure so tough?? I know 10 years ago there was a handful that came onto the market.

    Also, what do you think a fair price would be if one came onto the market? I am talking a generally nice c-8 or above? I actually don't care too much about minor creasing on the card or at all if it's unpunched.

    For some reason, that particular figure is almost always yellow. If it was me, I'd say break down and buy a yellow bubble. I am of the thought that with that figure, even if it's a clear bubble now it will start yellowing in the next few years.

    Non-graded clear bubble figures go for $100+ as opposed to about $50 for a yellow bubble.

    Really tough to get in a clear bubble, good luck.

    But if you really want a challenge try and get all 79 on ROTJ cardbacks with clear bubbles, it'll take a lot longer then a series collection, as the first 48 is where it get's really difficult with ROTJ figures.
