Empire Strikes Back 45-Back (Display Arena Offer) Yoda Proof Card
This is a shot of an Empire Strikes Back 45-back Yoda proof, which came with an offer for the mail-away Display Arena printed on the front. The photo Kenner used for their Yoda cards was later changed, along with the name tag (to read, "The Jedi Master") during the ROTJ line, as it was with several of the early-issue figures.

As you can see, Rob has assembled a small collection of ESB Yoda pieces. From left to right: the above mentioned 45-back proof card, a 32-back (the premier card for the Yoda figure), and a 48-back "brown snake" figure variation which is a little bit of a toughie to find on the ESB blister. Such subsets provide an interesting sampling of the various incarnations of the figure and its packaging over the years they were being produced.
