Thanks for everyone's replies! As for Morgbug's comment about recarded figures,
I've explored that route heavily. The main reason I won't settle for recards is
because the ones I've seen are a minimum of $40+! That's ridiculous! I could
spend just about double that and get a C-4-6 condition legit card. Also, I think
it was also Morgbug that said that all he's really concerned about are a nice
clean bubble, and a nice clean picture. That's the EXACT
same thing that
I'm looking for. But to me, even the image can have slight, and I mean slight
imperfections. Hopefully, years down the road, and I mean a long way off, I'll
probably aim to get all of the 12-Backs AFA graded 75+...
For now, though, I have all of the 12-Backs loose and in ProTech cases:
Now I want carded versions in almost any condition (clear bubbles is a MUST) to
throw in Star Cases and display them as a set... Like I said, years from now, I'll
get the AFA graded versions and they'll be my true masterpiece set. I'm just
obsessing over these 12-Backs...
Thanks again for everyone's interest!
