|Empire Strikes Back Proof Sheets (ESB 45-Backs: 6-Sheets)|
|The proof sheet shown above contains 6 different Empire Strikes Back 45-Back (Display Arena Offer)
proof cards. The sheet is one-sided, so no card back printing is present on the reverse of the
proof sheet. Collectors may also notice the color looks a bit different than what is typically seen
on finished proof cards. The colors cyan and yellow, represent the only colors used in the printing
of this sheet. The other two printing colors, magenta & black, are absent. The six characters
included on this sheet include:
The second image shows another different sheet. While it features the same characters as the sheet shown above, this sheet features an additional printing color: magenta. So, it's comprised of three of the four colors used in the printing process (cyan, yellow, and magenta) with only one (black) missing. It's interesting to the see image progression when a third color is added into the mix.
These two sheets were part of an incredible proof sheet find unearthed and sold by The Earth Collectible Toy Mall in 2005.
