Orange Card with Holo sticker?
« on: June 14, 2006, 06:29 AM »
I found a POTF2 Stormie on an orange card and with a holo sticker for $4.

Every thing looked genuine and was numbered .0000 for production. Card was in near mint condition.

Is this a rare variant?  The sticker was not a re- app and the dealer didn't know Star Wars products at all.

LMK what you guys think of this.
Palpatine:Lord Vader
Vader:Master, my suit chafes
Palps:Do you use Darkside
Vader:Yes master
Palps:In time you will learn the true power of the darkside
Vader:Which is
To stop chafing in clothes

Orange cards with holo stickers are definitely tricky to find, so I'd say $4 was a nice deal.  I think the reason is a lot of people just aren't looking for them these days, but I'd love to find a OC Vader with the holo sticker.

How "rare" is it really?  Personally, I can't say for sure, but it's a cool find nonetheless.

The stormtrooper, obiwan, and yoda weren't too hard to find back in the day.  I found all three at retail.  There are several others that were tough to get.   The next easiest to find would prolly be the r2.  It ONLY came on a canadian card with a slanted/stand up bubble however (anything else is fake)  There's also a leia, vader, tie fighter pilot (i think) and maybe one or 2 others and they can all be proven to be legit by having a certain datestamp(only a few people know these datestamps and are reluctant to tell as they are so easily faked).  I also recently saw a pic of a lando with a slanted bubble and holo sticker (CRAZY and only one has ever been found)

Edit:  My count for these in my collection is:
2 stormtroopers
1 obiwan
1 yoda
1 canadian SUB r2d2

Found one!  The OC Vader with the holo sticker s now one of the prize jewels in my POTF2 collection, focusing mostly on Vader.   

I recently sold most of my vintage carded collection as many of the the bubbles had darkened, yellowed, or just plain unsealed, so I have turned back to the POTF2 era as my collecting focus as those cards and bubbles just hold up so much better over time.
