Star Wars:The Original Topps Trading Card Series, Volume One

    By

    The Topps Star Wars trading cards were originally released in 1977 after the first Star Wars movie hit theatres that May. No one expected the movie to become an instant classic, but as licensors scrambled to satisfy the huge demand for kids of all ages looking to own images of their favourite characters and scenes, Topps was the first Star Wars licensee. The trading card series proved so popular that five different series were released in the same year. Almost forty years later, the popularity of the Star Wars franchise shows no sign of slowing down. Now, for the first time, all five classic trading card series are being reprinted in book form-in a deluxe volume of 516 pages. Each series consisted of 66 cards and 11 stickers. The backs of each card contain additional content including Movie Facts, Plot Summaries, Actor Profiles and Puzzle Cards. That's a total of 330 cards; 55 stickers; 110 Facts, Stories and Profiles; and 44 puzzle cards-505 images in all! Also includes four exclusive bonus collectible trading cards and an introduction by Gary Gerani, the original editor of the 1977 series of Topps trading cards.
