Empire Strikes Back 47-Back White Bespin Guard Proof Sample Card
Featured here is an ESB 47-back proof card for White Bespin Guard. Proof card collecting represents one popular segment in the pre-production collecting niche. The packaging design found on vintage blister cards is second to none and proof cards offer an unobstructed view of the entire card front.

Above you see a rear image of the proof card. This piece differs slightly from the standard proof card as it exhibits rounded bottom corners as opposed to square ones. Keen eyes may also discover the lack of a punch area. These difference have sometimes led collectors to further distinguish these cards with the designation of "sample cards".
