Mr Palitoy was an absolute star and found this perfect match of a bubble and also sold me a regular Han Hoth card back. I was going to cut the name tag out but can't bring myself to do it. I''m in two minds about properly resealing him but for the time being the bubble is propped on. I've added a spare minty Han and it looks ok to me
Very nice 'ensemble' piece, Andy! If you'd prefer not to damage a cardback to get the missing name plate (and I understand completely if that's the case), why not simply opt for a good quality colour photocopy or even a scan and regular ink-jet printed version of the plate instead? Stick it to some suitable card, cut it to size and slot it home! You shouldn't even need to glue or tape it in place if you get a snug enough fit.
As for resealing it, you have such a great bubble match it would seem almost rude not to at least consider it. Do you know if the Poch card originally came with a footer? If so, it's simple enough to make a replacement to complete the piece.
Good luck if you do try any of the above, and I'd love to see the end result!
