Description: Harbert, Denys Fisher, Mego, Autographed Boxed Dr Who
Up for auction is this boxed, Unplayed with Harbert Tom Baker Dr Who.
The figure is still attached to it's backing card and doesn't look like it's been removed from it although there are some stress marks to the holes where it's tied to it, this is probably due to movement from the figure. Also there is a crease to the right hand side of the backing card.
The Dr is in unplayed with condition with all his clothing present (including original neck tie which seems to be always missing).
He comes with all his accesories which are still sealed in the bag.
The box is in great shape with only a very slight bow to the right hand side, not really that noticable though and all the edges are quite sharp and in good shape. There is also a slight crease to the top of the outside flap although it doesn't break paper and has just caused a small vain. All three flaps at the top are intact although they do show signs on the inside of where they've been opened and closed various times. The original tape is still present and doesn't look to have been opened from the bottom.
The box has also been autographed down the legs by Tom Baker. The dealer I bought this from couldn't tell me for sure if the autograph was genuine as this was how he'd aquired it but another dealer who looked at it told me that it was genuine as he'd been at a convention in Bristol in the early 90's and had seen Tom Baker sign 10 of these boxes in the same way.
Since buying this item I have seen this dealer again who again verified the story. As the dealer has been around for many years I have no reason to doubt him and also as he didn't sell me the item I don't really see what he has to gain. That's about all I can tell you about it.
