    I absolutely love that Bumblejumper Killa-B-Killed. I hope to have one just like it someday.

    Terrible pictures, I know, but these are my only legit AFA items.

    I will say AFA is not my cup of tea.

    I would also say I'm lying if I didn't like looking at them lol.

    Maybe this could be the validate AFA thread if everyone contributing pics were too post the actual AFA grading and flaws and pics of said flaws so everyone could get a gauge on what constitutes what level of grading and what "points" are deducted for.

    Definitely something neat to see and would make this the AFA thread of TFW2005.

    Carry on

    I have a couple carded samples that the cards and such are in not so great shape, should I just purchase a sliding bottom case or should I send them and have them graded anyway?
