    Got it! I found this, by entering these 3 things, "star wars" "bootleg toy" card, [onto- Google image].

    Your card looks like the peg card for a [toy line] of bootleg, star wars, 3 3/4 inch…I guess, action figures.

    The site I found, has a crudely made, black-suited, Darth Vader fig., on a white card, a white card like yours. The pic I found is from an article, by Zack Zagranis, on December 21, 2015.
    I can't tell you the toy's co., or what nation the toy is from, but the Darth on the white card, is on the 1st photo, of this page:

    SORRY. Warning- some bad words/the F word, are on that site.

    The art is straight from marvel comic's official adaptation! I felt jipped when I was a kid when I got the comic, the art was really crappy!!

    I'm sorry to go for such low hanging fruit but it was driving me nuts that no one else said this.

    I found a pic of this backing card. It's from a Star Wars Vintage Mexican Bootleg Pool Table.
    Probably used for other stuff as well.

    Also used to pack bootleg Kenner figures.
