Carded figures with no proof of purchase


Its understandable that in order to get mail away figures one must cut out the proof of purchase from the card. How does a Carded figure compare to one with the cutout POP?

Re: Carded figures with no proof of purchase


A carded figure's desirability due to proof of purchase (POP) removal will vary from collector to collector. I've observed that a higher percentage of collectors view a missing POP as a serious flaw compared to those who don't mind. Personally it's a death knell in my eyes and brings my personal valuation of a carded figure down extremely close to that of a loose figure's value.

I agree with mike. No matter how neatly it's done, it really kills it for me personally. I'd pay loose mint complete price for it. That's what I do on occasion is buy a completely beat up carded figure just so I can be sure it's loose mint complete. and the price is usually about the same.

Thank you both for your advice I was outbid narrowly escaping an inflated value. I do feel sorry for the winner. The auction closed at almost $500 for 4 cut cards and 6 whole cards.
