Pepsi - US - Promotional Game Cards (1999)
Not available to the general public, this set of 24 cards was made available through Pepsi distributors as a premium to store managers who provided shelf space for Pepsi products during the 1999 Episode One promotion. Each of the 24 cards matches one of the 24 cans released by Pepsi as part of the promotional campaign for Episode One.
The cards for this set came with a collectible booklet.
Distributors would receive several new cards each week. The bottom portion of the card was designed to be torn off. This portion included a scratch off game. By collecting and scratching all of the cards, the store manager could win prizes, including the possibility of winning a leather jacket.
Although you might think un-scratched, un-torn cards would be rare (who wouldn't want a leather jacket for Star Wars?) a reasonable number of these cards have appeared on the secondary market. Prices are generally reasonable as well.
This set makes a fun collectible, and is a perfect companion set for collectors who completed a set of the Pepsi cans.
Thanks to Anthony Gambatese for reminding me to post this page.
A big thank you to Blair Trottier for providing scans of the cards.
