I need to know if there are any U.S. Kenner 77-back cardbacks (specifically) where the back was not printed as yellow (slightly more golden yellow) and the figures themselves do not appear as clear. I received one today that does not match up to my other 77 backs or 65 backs and as legit as the front of card seems-the back doesn't look right-also the "feel" it seems barely thinner and almost slick or waxy-everything is screaming fake and seller swears it is legit. The card also has anakin offers front and back that are legit but not impossible to apply after the fact. Seller states that I can return it if I insure it. So do slightly thinner less bright yellow cardbacks exist?

Which figure is it & can you post a pic?
Made In Mexico cardacks can be darker with poorer print quality. These have a dull finish compared to Kenner cards from Asia. Most (but not all) MIM cards also have a small hole punched in the back behind the figure.

It is a 77-back Logray, but can't tell if it is MIM because of Anakin offer sticker on back. The figure itself has darker stripes. I can post pic tomorrow, but what do you think? The anakin offer says "figures made in hong kong"

Well Logray is one of the 13 figures known on Kenner Made In Mexico cards. So it is a possibility. It's normal for the Anakin Offer sticker applied to MIM cards to say 'figures made in hong kong'.

If you can post a clear photo of the cardback & figure tomorrow we should be able to confirm one way or the other. Smile
