There has been some recent discussion about one of the old time collectors, Boba Fisher on RS. From what I have read, his health has not been very well over the last few years and it sounds like things have gotten worse.

I managed to find the clip of news footage from the early 90's showing his collection and thought I would also share it here. He was the first person to make a fan made potf coin frame.

I've seen that framed POTF coin collection thing he did for sale somewhere... either that or someone copied it and make it the exact same way with all the coins!!!!

I know one of the frames came up for sale this year on RS. I think the seller removed the post as I can't find it now.

I did find the #1 frame and set for sale which would have been the one from Boba's personal collection.

I dropped Bob a a feel better card and some custom stickers and he was nice enough to send me back one of his Boba business cards with his drawing of a super deformed Boba Fett on it. He's a really nice guy and still very witty at 72 years old!

Thanks for sharing that Shawn, enjoyed watching the video.
Shame about Boba's health.
