 I've kept a lot of the original cards, should I re-card my figures?

Yes, I kept quite a few of the original backing cards to my vintage star wars figures. The question I wanted to ask the forum was, what is the general consensus, should I go about getting bubbles & put the things back together or, should I just keep the cards separate as I have done all these years?

I have my original cardbacks- do NOT reseal them. You can always use loose figure clamshells & then put them in star cases. They display the same without permanently doing damage with glue.

That's a good idea, I wonder if the acrylic cases would fit snuggly enough to do that?
I've been trying to think of a good way of displaying that tri-fett card I bought.

When I looked at it quickly I didn't notice the figure was in a clam shell case at first, great idea while keeping the card intact!
