    mint on...blister?

    so this is a topic im interested in talking about.
    what is it really worth when a figure is on a damaged or destroyed card?
    for example right now on ebay theres a bib fortuna sealed in a bubble thats had the card back cut off or destroyed.
    my question is , is that worth leaving sealed or would it be better off opened?
    its not on a card anymore per se, some one has taken the scissors and cut the back off and left poor bib trapped in a plastic prison.
    its kind of like how the still sealed gi joes from vehicles are sold.
    i dont have one its just a theoretical question.

    Personally, if I came across one I would pay (maybe) $15. I wouldn't be able to justify more than that.

    the one i saw was on bid for nearly 30$ but that was why i was asking about the debate on opening it.

    i wont ever open a mint on card figure. ill be clear now so everyone understands, but something like that i might unless its a super taboo thing to do so.

    Cut cards are not exactly uncommon. While they're not on a perfect condition, it's still a form of sealed figure. There's only a finite number of them out there. Is the bubble cracked or yellowed? Jedi figures tend to yellow and become quite brittle. In a few years, it will probably break on it's own. I think it's similar to opening a baggie or a fully carded figure. It should only be done if whatever package it has is in complete distress, torn, cracked or otherwise compromised and it just can't be saved.

    well i dont have it but the example in question was rather yellow in plastic. ive pretty much decided to leave such things be most people seem uneasy about it and ican see why it is as you said still sealed on card (fro ma certain point of view)

    there are cut card collectors out there some of the rare variants go for quite a bit. But a normal figure isn't worth that much more than a mint loose figure. I know that CAS has started a few different ways to grade things like cut cards to only score the figure part so people are less likely to open them.

    I personally don't care for them and wouldn't buy one unless it was a DT saber or VCJ type thing... and even then only because it would be cheaper than a compete card...
