I am an avid MOC collector (formerly a loose, mint collector), but I'm primarily in it for the uncirculated, mint figure. I'm the guy that jumps on the damaged card, torn card, etc. auctions to have the mint figure. I don't remove the figures. It's just reassuring to know that I don't have to rely on someone's description of mint not matching mine. What about you guys? Are you strictly in it for the overall "pristine" quality of the card or is it all about the figure?
