Topps - US - Star Wars Galaxy Series 1 (1993)


These trading cards represent Topps' return to the distribution of Star Wars trading cards. They also represent a departure from the traditional photo image cards previously produced for the Star Wars films. These cards present the artwork of the Star Wars universe with often powerful, often quirky images from a wide range of artists. In addition to portraits of twelve of the movie characters, the cards include artwork from the production of Star Wars, poster art, promotional and merchandising art, as well as art by comic illustrators. The card set features many incredible images.

In addition to the regular set of cards, a special factory set was issued. The factory set was issued in a plastic reproduction of the Millennium Falcon. Although the plastic falcon looked rather cheaply done, it hid a wealth of great cards, including a complete set of foil stamped cards, a special Darth Vader 3-D hologram, and promo card #0. Additionally, collectors could send away for a special binder to hold their card collection. This binder came with a special promo card not available anywhere else, SWB1.
