A proof card (or proof) is an early printing of an action figure cardback. Generally proofs are printed on slightly thinner cardstock and the bottom corners remain square. Often, proofs do not have glossy backs as they are mainly for showcasing the front image of the card. Some proofs are not printed on the back at all. There seems to be no exact science to how a proof card is made or what it can be used for. All proofs are printed on a big sheet and individually cut. Sometimes proofs are found that have not been die-cut from the sheet and have much of the white bordering around them. These were usually the result of a person hand cutting an entire sheet just to separate the individual cards.
