Hey,

I was offered this Boba Fett MOC by a dutch 100% trustfully guy who decided to stop collecting about a year ago and to sell off his complete collection. This is one of the last pieces remaining and he asked me to come with a good proposal. I was thinking somewhere around 350-400 Euro. He tend to stick to 500 Euro (415 GBP, 644 $). Is that a fair price, way overpriced, the opposite?
The card is in good condition, the bubble is clear, only has two small indents at the top.

I don't have much experience with MOCs, so was wondering whether you guys could give me some price estimate. Any helpfull advice would be much appreciated

Thx!

(admin: I don't know whether is the right section to get an idea about the value of a Star Wars item. If not pls move this post to where it belongs.)

Dr. Dengar,

First off this is as good a place as any to post the question!

Personally I think it's high considering the condition. The back of the cardback looks a little beaten. Below is mine, which only scored an AFA80. I think $644 might be optimistic. The thing is, like Andy (Plantman) said, there arent a ton of them so people can command a premium. I'd say if you could get it for $500-$550 it would be a decent buy

I agree that $500 - $550 would be fair as it looks like the bubble is slight yellowed and cloudy especially at the bottom as well.

Super sweat item though and very hard to find i hope you land it Marco Smile

Id get some pics of the back in better daylight, the freckling can look worse with a flash as it emphasizes it.

like the guys have said, a good deal would be $550, if it was a missing part of my collection i would pay more because i love fett Smile

weigh it up against what it means to you, that frecling on the back could go to your advantage though.

Andy, DB, Jay, Coach, Merlin,

Thanks for your evaluation of this piece!

I like this card also very much, it would be great to add this to my collection. I hope to work out a decent deal.

I can not remember that the backside looked so battered when I saw this MOC about a week ago in real life. So it might - as Andy suggest - well be an effect of the flash light, amplifying all small imperfections. Or was I just so dazzled by the beauty of the front side, that I lost a clear view on the back side?

To be sure, I asked the guy for some daylight pictures of this MOC. Once I have them I will post them here as well.

Cheers

Very smart idea. I've seen a few figures that I wanted so badly, that I didnt look as well as I shouldve. Then once in hand, I realized I shoud have been more dilligent.

Get the pics up and lets see where it takes us!

I got some daylight pics today. The backside still has some issues but they appear less dramatic as in the flashlight pictures.

What do you think guys?
