Avid collectors of all things card and comic- related ought to recognise the name “Topps”. Since 1938, they’ve been the marketing geniuses behind collectable sports cards, entertainment products and themed confectionary – as well as the creators of the original Star Wars Galaxy Trading Card Series. Understandably, it’s not considered totally retro.
Born from a love of both the Star Wars
film franchise and conceptual illustration, the Star Wars Galaxy series collected artworks from some of the greatest comic book and concept film artists at the time and transformed them into a collect and swap card range. Star Wars Galaxy: The Originals Topps Trading Card Series
is bound to whet the curious appetites of past collectors and Star Wars fans; it’s a companion book to these now prized cards.
Filled with the same artworks that appeared on these tremendously popular trading cards, this little golden book also includes an introduction by Gary Gerani, contributing editor for the 1996 trading cards set – oh, and four bonus cards to call your own. Those are pretty nice, too!

- Artwork and illustrations as seen in the trading card series.
