I've been itching to get back into vintage Star Wars collecting. However, the prices are much, much higher than when I left, and I'm taking it very slowly. In that effort, I'm searching for needles in various haystacks.
One thing I've noticed in vintage Star Wars eBay auctions that are much more prominent than I recall is where eBay sellers place evidence that something is authentic (and really good), coupled with a warning that weapons may be reproductions, or other similar non-committal disclaimers.
For example, I was following an auction last month where there was early bird paper work and a Luke Skywalker that looked like it might have a telescoping lightsaber. However, there was no mentioned of it at all. The price was more than I was willing to pay but I'm curious if anyone here picked up this auction and, if so, what goodies were included.
Here's the link to the auction (which has been completed for almost a month so I feel comfortable posting it):
