Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Being Transported Back to 1977! Lots of fun to have a look back at the complete 1977-1978 Topps Star Wars Cards set. Had several of these cards as a kid, but never before had I seen the entire set, until now. Lots of nostalgia looking at the old images - this book contains everything, including the Wonder Bread cards we couldn't get in Canada. You can almost smell the bubble gum in the book that came with these cards!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Nostalgia! Star Wars: The Original Topps Trading Card Series, Volume One is a small hardcover that packs an immense punch. If you’re old enough to have collected these star wars trading cards when they first came out, but never managed to get them all, then this is the book for you. All of the cards are here including the infamous C3-PO one (you know the one I’m referring to). They 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A blast from the past of my childhood! i was only 8 or 9 when I was collecting these, but while reviewing this COMPLETE and indexed visual catalogue of the entire run, I was immediately drawn back to my youth, and––surprisingly––even remembered (sometimes vividly) several of these cards and stickers as I saw them on the pages. I am anxious to add the remaining STAR WARS trading card books to my growing collection of TOPPS compendiums! Oh, and... BONUS: you even actual cards in the book. SWEET!!
