I owned this fett originally http://community.webshots.com/photo/69243198/1121559798045798749CUyHNB and in the time between it was graded a lot of lifting had evolved around the edge and bottom of card resulting in bubbling and when i sold the item i sold it cheap mentioning the flaws
Now the seller here has made a point of forgetting to add this flaw and taken pics in a way it does not show http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Return-Of-The-Jedi-AFA-95-Bobba-Fett_W0QQitemZ6058519023QQcategoryZ56306QQrdZ1QQcm dZViewItem

i just feel sorry for someone if they reach the reserve price and end up with a carded figure in not as good condition as seems

80 - 85 at most

That seller seems to want alot too, 3 hours to go and on 1200 pounds and reserve not yet met, i wouldnt pay 300 pounds for it, the 95 might be there and only one of its kind but that dont chang the fact there is alot of lifting on the card.

Too much dishonesty in this hobby as it is and coming from a seller with a good reputation too

I've bought a couple of AFA MOCs from him. He deals in high-grade, high value items mostly. Never had any problems w/ any of the items I bought from him, other than some scratching on the acrylic cases. His name is Allen.

He's probably only trying to recover some/most of his investment in this piece. He's not one to flip stuff for profit. I've seen him take quite a loss on some of the stuff he's resold. I agree that sellers should disclose flaws such as the bubble lifting. It's tough being the one who eats the loss though...

I wonder how much the seller paid for it and if the person who originally sold it to him also forgot to mention the flaws . When I sold it, i sold it on these forums for a mere 250 pounds when i could have easily hidden the flaws and sold on ebay for over a grand lol but hey i rather have a clean conscience than a hefty bank account, but both would be even better http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
