Sold for $50. Not the worst price in the universe but I could still buy 2 Yodas, grade them, and hope they return 10s for the same price.
Woah, that sold?!

Haha, has anyone else gone to check out the first postings on this thread? It makes me a biiit crazy since I missed out on these prices...

Holy crap, those auctions are crazy! The last one hadn't sold, though. But paying $230 for a box of Theed? Those people should have their head examined.
I would love to be able to pay only $230 for a box of Theed... Or anything "rare" nowadays...

Yeah those first few pages of this thread are crazy, I wish I got back into collecting earlier. I started collecting again around a year ago and was luckily able to make a ton of progress before everything shot up but stuff was still pricey even a year ago. Compare it to a decade ago, that stuff was pennies

Yeah the early pages of this thread are now basically just the new pages of the "way underpriced" thread.

Alright this thread is about to return to its roots....

Yes my friends, this person actually believes that the foil line in the middle of the card makes it more rare. Good stuff.

Bump this in a week. I bet you it sells (perhaps for a little less than asking price though).

I have a Wampa Cave that has this same error. Only 1/2 the main picture has foil.

The rare ANH Yoda -- which many people don't realized exists -- was printed with white marks around the border, just to make it look cool and vintage. It was previously graded PSA 10, and was only cracked by a playtester to look at before being returned to a sleeve!

This pile is at FIFTY SIX dollars, shipped. Sure, there's an Executor, a couple of rare ISDs, Ozzel. But dayum.

I think this still counts? Look an AI AND Foil!.. but think the seller is going to be disappointed, it is after all LP condition.

Only 3.95 shipping!

Yeah I think people misinterpret how rare foil AIs are. Granted, the fact they're from reflections III makes them rare, however they're not actually alternate images since there's only 1 image

I have a lot of factory sealed packs, but not currently any factory UnSealed ones. And I have bought cases of Ref I. Clearly I got lost on my way to the underpriced auction thread before posting this:
