While we can't confirm there are only three know examples, we do know that the 12 back A Princess Leia Organa with White Footer is incredibly rare, as is the 12 Back A Chewbacca with White Footer. Both would make a fantastic center piece in any Classic Kenner collection. It is strongly believed that the white footer, which can only be found on a 12 Back A card, is the earliest version of packaging variations. To date the white footer has been found on the Princess Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) and Chewbacca figures. There is also word of a Stormtrooper being spotted, but that hasn't been confirmed. Had we run this story a few days ago you would have been able to see the 12 Back A Luke Skywalker with White Footer too, but that auction has disappeared.
