Monty Fabrieken - The Netherlands - ROTJ Cards (1983)


These vintage cards were produced in the Netherlands by a company called Monty Factories in the city of Leiden. Known as Monty cards, they are different from many other vintage international cards, in that they are not simply a recreation of an American set with a different company name on them. Monty cards are smaller in size than normal trading cards and are very different from the American ROTJ sets.

The Monty ROTJ set contains 100 cards. Each card is slightly under 2 inches wide (5 centimeters), and approximately 2 and 3/4 inches high (7 centimeters). All of the cards have a yellow border, with the ROTJ logo at the top of the card. Under the logo is a picture from the movie. Above the logo, in the upper right-hand corner is a very small number, which is the number of the card. The 100 cards do not follow the plot line of the movie, with images appearing in almost random order. There is no text on the back of the card to provide any information, and the cards do not bear the Monty name anywhere on them. They do have the LucasFilm copyright.

The wrappers for these cards were also yellow, and were more similar to a small paper bag in design, than to a wrapper. Each wrapper had the ROTJ logo, and showed Vader (with a red cape) and a Gamorrean Guard on the front. The back showed the two droids, R2-D2 and C-3P0. On the back of the wrapper, in small text below the LucasFilm copyright is the name of the Monty company and the words "Made and Printed in Holland." 6 cards came in each wrapper. Cards were perforated and joined together, and needed to be separated. An uncut sheet of cards was available as well.
