I have a passion for collecting vintage Star Wars merchandise from the late 70's. Action figures, comics, trading cards etc - anything related to the first Star Wars movie. But why only until 1980? It's not that I don't love The Empire Strikes Back and beyond (I really do), but there is something about that first wave of Star Wars mania that really grips me, back when it was all fresh and exciting...

Topps Trading Cards: Series 2

Series 2 here (#66 - 137) with the red borders.



Most of the backs of the cards feature either 'Movie Facts' or 'Actor's Profiles'.


Two jigsaw puzzles can be put together from the backs of certain cards; a Sandperson and good ol' Chewie.

I have these cards still in the wrapper with gum. In the counter display box and the case box, these stores bought with the Star Wars pictures on the side.
I wonder what they are worth.
Lucas short changed Mark hamill bu not going on to the further adventures of Luke Skywalker.
From my point of view it was THE biggest blunder in seqeul history.

I learned only recently that the first series of these cards I bought during that time, the yellow series, was already the third set. I was old enough--though not by today's overprotective standards--to walk or ride my bike to the corner convenience store to buy those yellow packs for a quarter a pop. I also steadfastly collected the green and orange series of those Topps cards. Wonderful memories.
