Look at this ridiculous nonsense:
Ebay item# 360009394165
What makes this guy think that an AFA grade suddenly makes his MOC Cloud Car Pilot worth $800?
I'm seeing it all over ebay now. You have to sift through 5 or 6 overpriced AFA carded vintage figures just to find one decent non-graded carded vintage figure.
I've been looking around for a MOC vintage AT-AT Driver, on an ESB card, and did a search on ebay this morning and I found:
2 AFA graded MOC auctions with BINs for $300 and $600 and one non-AFA figure with a BIN (Buy it Now) of $125.
AFA is a disease that, unless stopped now, is going to signal the death of action figure collecting.
