Toy Toni Cardback Matrix

In December 2013 Antoni Emchowicz aka Toy Toni, a long time Palitoy and German MOC toy dealer, was found to have been assembling MOC from a large stock of unused cardbacks and bubbles bought after the Palitoy factory closed. The matrix below is a categorisation of the affected figure/cardback combinations. There are 11534 cards with an approximate 50/50 split between Palitoy and German General Mills cards. There are also 277 Dutch Clipper cards.This matrix is a guide, as the sales list that listed the number of unused cardbacks he bought was not well categorised and missing for some figures. Information from the AFA population report and cards that have been for sale on toytoni.com have also been factored into making this breakdown more accurate. He has been assembling MOCs for a long time and AFA have graded hundreds of them over the last 20 years. There are also a few unused cardbacks in circulation which AFA currently list as proof cards. The numbers listed are the number of unused cardbacks shown on the sales list.

*Both Palitoy & Dutch Clipper or German General Mills & Dutch Clipper offered on toytoni.com, so a 50/50 split assumed rather than assuming all are German General Mills
+Dutch Clipper not listed, but offered on toytoni.com, no German General Mills figure offered
^Palitoy variation not known to exist, assumed to be German General Mills which does exist
 
Total number of affected cards:- 11534
If you have a very mint card with a pristine bubble on a figure/cardback above, it is highly likely that it originated from Toy Toni. Efforts are being made by the collecting community to better spot these by examining printing flaws on the cards, bubble types, bubble placement, how the seals look and looking for figures with wear and incorrect COO on them. The most up to date information on spotting these can be found on the collecting forums listed below. There are many more figure variations on affected figures than there should be. Boba Fett has at least 3 variations listed by AFA that are likely to be down to Toy Toni. Also, odd bubble cardback combinations on the affected cardbacks are likely to be down to Toy Toni. Boba Fett with a single stem bubble on a 45C cardback for example. Further details of Toy Toni’s impact on the given card variations is shown on the individual pages for the affected card variations.
