    1 thought on “Star Wars: The Original Topps Trading Card Series, Volume One”

    1. In 1977, Gary Gerani and Len Brown of the Topps Company, won the licence from 20th Century Fox to provide trading cards for their new film “Star Wars”. The first set - blue borders with a flecked starfield - consisted of 66 cards and 11 stickers and was an instant success, leading to a further four series (two more in 1977, the final two in 1978). I collected the first set as an 8-year-old who wouldn’t see the film until early 1978 but was desperate to and those cards provided me with a gl [...]

    2. A great collection focused on a small-but-intriguing corner of the Star Wars memorabilia universe. Like the original photo-sharing, these cards were a huge draw for kids, and today they still provide insights into collecting, trading cards, and the pop culture juggernaut that is now Star Wars.

    3. I have a few various sets of Star Wars trading cards in my collection, but none of the original Topps cards. This book instantly gives me a complete set of the cards while also providing excellent behind the scenes commentary on the development process. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

    4. This book really triggers my personal sense of nostalgia. In an era before home video and the internet, these Topps trading cards were pretty much the only visual reference to the movie available outside of the theater. At 15 cents a pack, I could actually afford to buy at least one or two packs every time I went to the store with my parents, so I amassed quite a few of these cards as a kid (although I only completed one of the five sets).The book goes out of its way to remind people like me of [...]

    5. This is a tremendous book produced by Topps Trading Cards. If you're a child of the '80s like I am, you probably grew up in the wonderful excitement and passionate storm surrounding the three original Star Wars movies. (Oh wait, I guess that goes for kids today too!) There's no denying the fact that Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon. This epic tale touched all parts of our popular culture and became a mythic part of the story of our generation. Star Wars: The Original Topps Trading Card Series, [...]

    6. Admittedly, there's not much to this book, so it is a very fast "read". Still, I enjoyed it, in particular, for the nostalgia. The book is beautifully put together. All 5 series of the cards, plus the Wonder Bread series, are present. There are even 5 new cards included. Each original card, front and back, are featured full size in the book. The stickers as well as the completed puzzles (scaled down) are also present. The dust cover is made with a waxy material that mimics the original card pack [...]

    7. Star Wars: The Original Topps Trading Card Series, Volume One collects all five series of the celebrated film's trading cards, 385 cards and stickers in total, in a single hardbound volume. Cards are printed in full-color, one to a page, with facts, trivia and other anecdotes by author and former Topps editor Gary Gerani. Gerani does a nice job of setting the stage, providing details on movie merchandising, the state of the trading card business in the mid-1970s, and the cultural impact of the S [...]

    8. Great for remembering those bubble gum cut cheeks moments as you Walked back from the newsagents hoping to get at least one space ship card. X wing or TIE fighter, or maybe even The Falcon! May the for

    9. A great book. Inside you will find reprints of all 300+ cards that Topps produced to go along with Episode IV as well as commentary from Gary Gerani who worked at Topps at the time. The fronts and backs of the cards are reprinted along with the stickers that were released as well. Back then people didn't have access to loads of images on the internet or a home copy of the movie. If you wanted to scrutinize something that was happening in the background of a shot, this is how you did it. The comm [...]

    10. A groundbreaking and gorgeous book! One of the best Xmas presents ever, especially for a long-time "Star Wars" fan like myself. Looking through each of the original trading cards and stickers filled me with nostalgia and a renewed love for the classic Science-Fantasy saga. I was particularly amazed with the movie facts behind each card and the memorable iconic scenes on them. The deleted scene cards were pretty cool too! Very interesting reading cast and crew commentary, production notes and mor [...]

    11. 4.5 starsPossibly the greatest gift that one could give to an adult who lived through the release of these cards back in 1977 but who could never have completed the sets. Very nice design and production values for the representation of this series - even to the level of pointing out erroneous color correction and over-airbrusing on some of the images. I appreciated the inclusion of the stickers as well as the composite images resulting from the backs of some of the cards. Solid introduction that [...]

    12. This is a really nice reference book that covers the Topps trading cards from the first Star Wars movie. It has nice photos of all of the cards from the five series. Unfortunately, the binding seems a little weak.

    13. This is a fantastic companion to fans of Star Wars trading cards. This book shows every card front and back from the first few series of Star Wars trading cards. There is also commentary from those involved in the creation of the sets. There are also 4 exclusive trading cards in this first volume .

    14. An awesome trip down memory lane. If you collected these cards as a child, seriously go get this. Memories.

    15. A great addition to any Star Wars collection. Would have been awesome to have been collecting at the time they came out & to have them now. Fun to look through.
