AJ what is this run? I really only go for loose figures, so have no idea what the run is. I assume the previous post of 4 is a run of cantina aliens on return of the jedi cards. This last one is not so obvious to me.

This may get more attention here in the card back thread. Very Happy

I found this on the weekend. It's from the Canadian 77 backs. I'm not sure if this is a spelling mistake or just an odd Canadian spelling. My lovely wife (who is a teacher) agrees that it is a spelling mistake. I did try to look it up in my dictionary and online. Can anyone else confirm the spelling of Catapult in Canada or is it another case of someone at Kenner Canada with fat fingers when typing?

Quick question about some prices. I saw on rs a seller with poch cardbacks that I thought were nice but man to me the price was high. My question is not poch related, but more towards fett. Is there a general guideline of pricing for fett cardbacks? How many variations, companies, etc... Exist. What is a general price guideline for these even the rarer ones? I'm thinking of going for a fett cardback focus, but have never collected cardbacks before. I managed to get a trilogo fett card with a foreign language sticker on the front that is a small circle and what appears to be a catalog type sticker on the rear. I also have an empire strikes back fett card that is a 21 back, but don't know if it is a,b,c version or whatever. Since this is me starting to branch out into cardbacks and not having been involved with them prior, any information you provide would be appreciated. If any one has any fett cardbacks that they may want to sale feel free to holler at me. Thanks

You just don't see POCH cardbacks turn up for sale often( hence the prices ) You are going to pay 'Fett tax' if you focus on him for cardbacks. I would choose an 'easier' SW figure to focus on.

Bryan, I have 2 different Kenner Canada Fett cards.  A 21 back & a 41b.



There are at least 6 different known Fett's for Kenner Canada,  20b, 21, 32, 41b, transition, & 77 backs.

http://www.womprat.com/ccba/starwars.html

Since all that I collect is Kenner Canada, that's all I can comment on.

Good luck in the hunt. Very Happy

Thanks Clint for the information. AJ I may try another character but I already have the fett cardbacks I mentioned so I figured I would stick with him if possible. Guess I have to see what come up for sale as I go. I have never really collected cardbacks and only have a few from buying collections that had them in the mix.

cheers That's the stickers. I hadn't put much into trying to figure it out yet as I have been tied up with other things lately. Kind of cool. The back sticker is almost like a catalog as it has an outer page and could unfold if it weren't attached at both ends. There is just enough room from the top of it to see it has pics on the inside also.
