Topps - US - Star Wars Galaxy 3 (1995)


The final installment of the Star Wars Galaxy series of cards, these cards complete the work begun in Star Wars Galaxy Series 1 and 2. Containing many comic images, as well as images created from the world of the Star Wars novels, this card series helps expand the Star Wars universe. A mirror set exists for this card set. Topps issued a large number of cards with a small gold foil "first day production" stamp in one corner. It is possible to complete a full set of first day cards. A subset of the cards bear a small gold stamp with the Lucas Arts logo. There are 12 cards in the subset. There were a total of 12 Chase Cards. Six Chase Cards continue the series from the first two sets. These are numbered 13 - 18. An additional six cards are a new type of Chase Card called Clear Zone. Featuring the bounty hunters of the Star Wars universe, these six cards are printed on a see-through colored plastic, with images of the bounty hunters painted on. A very cool subset.

Cards in the set are numbered 276 - 365. Chase Cards are listed on the official checklist card, although the card contains an error, omitting the number 16 for the chase cards, and mislabeling chase card 15 as having the content of the actual card 16. The checklist below is accurate to the actual cards.

As always, thanks to David Pipgras for his assistance with the promo card information.

I do not know of a factory set available for this installment in the Star Wars Galaxy series, and am not aware of a binder or binder card being available for this set.

Thanks to Ricky Peterson, and to Andy, for helping identify the Bounty Hunters shown on the chase cards.
