1982 and 1983 figures in 1984

Many figures from 82 and 83 were still avalibe in 1984. These cardbacks are often times called 32 cardbacks becuse they feature a 32 figure checklist on the back of the card. To make one of these cardbacks you will need the front half of the card from either 82 or 83 (depending on the look you want) and you will use the standard 1984 back. This will give you the 32 style cardback that these figures would have been on.
