Now, for the first time, all 352 cards and 88 stickers are reprinted in a single deluxe volume. Reproducing the fronts and backs of each card, this collection includes character pro­files, story cards, movie facts, quotes, trivia, and puzzles featuring beloved characters and scenes from The Empire Strikes Back. Also included are four bonus trading cards, the Photo Card series, rare promotional images, and an introduction and commentary by Gary Gerani, the original editor of Topps’s Star Wars series.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cards Strike Back! Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back: The Original Topps Trading Card Series, Volume Two is the second hardcover collecting all the cards from the original release of TESB. Following the unprecedented success of the original Star Wars trading cards, TESB series had even more cards, and the most at 352 cards among the three films. Not knowing when or if there would ever be another Star Wars film (at the time) these cards were a wonderful way of keeping the magic of the force with you everywhere you went as a kid. A definite must buy; all the cards are nicely photographed and are accompanied by text that gives a good amount of background information and context to all the different series. I never thought I’d ever collect all the cards and now here they are all together in one perfect package. Everything about this book screams nostalgia; even the dust jacket feels just the wax packs of the original cards!
