Cut card Ledy Jawas and even more DT figures!

You guys sure do have all the luck!

Ill second that!!

Great scores Lads!!!

Where are all the LL cuts cards from? Are they from multiple sources?

Cheers Jay

Same thoughts here, very nice aquisitions guys, don't know how you always can pull it off.

By the way imo the LL jawa still looks better on his cut card then in a plastic case with a U-grade, think off it, now it's also cased and Untouched or Unplayed with. If it where mine i kept it in the bubble.... just my opinion.

I Actually think on this occasion i would U grade him lol. Never thought i would ever say that Shocked

Its a cracking find, but i find cut cards not too easy on the eye. In a acrylic case he will display nicer imo.
Its a great find, i think thats the first cut card LL jawa i have ever seen.

I've got to second what Craig said! DON'T U GRADE IT!!!!!

It's significant enough for what it is! The U grad will only destroy a perfectly good example of a sealed Ledy Jawa, cut card or not. Not only that, but what would the difference be between the Jawa locked up in his original cardback, or locked up in an acrylic case?

I agree with this (No U Grade). When I bought my first ledy cut card I thought that was what I would do. Now I am in love with the fact that they are original, sealed and few. What a beautiful example Smile. I do have to figure out how to display the ones I have.

Well said Chris and Jason!

How many sealed examples of this figure are there? You would be destroying a significant piece of history if you "U-fucked" this!

Don't do it man and that comes from someone who was on the U-grade dark side - I speak from experience! You'll regret it for the rest of your life dude - I know I do! Everyone one can see that it's "uncirculated" as it is still inside the bubble. Why not get a cusom AFA case for the whole thing? You still have a "uncirculated" figure sealed in its bubble retaining the history and you can still have an AFA grade.

Ok don't U grade him lol.

Im a U hater, but i think cut cards are pretty ugly.
But i guess this isn't a run of the mill cut card, so completely see what you guys are saying.

If it was mine i think i would be undecided for a long long time.
