Topps - UK - Star Wars Cards Series 2 (1977)


Thanks to Greg for providing some basic updated information on this set.

These cards are basically reprints of the first two series (blue and red) of the Topps US cards. There were no stickers issued with the British sets. The first set of blue cards is identical to the US set, and difficult to distinguish from the US set. The paper it is printed on is slightly lighter however, and the card backs seem lighter when compared to the US cards. The US cards will tend to have more of a gray cast to them. For collectors, a blue set issued in the UK will not be different in any noticeable way from one issued in the US.

The second set of the British cards includes different numbering from the Topps sets. This is the red set of cards. 1a-66a and the pictures are in a different order to the US set. Special thanks to John Larr for providing the checklist below that shows a comparison between the UK series 2 cards and the US series 2 cards.
