The second of five sets to come when the Force initially hit, 1977 Topps Star Wars Series 2 trading cards are instantly recognizable for their red borders. The release is officially marketed as "New Series."
Other than the color, the 2nd series is very similar to the initial blue-border release.
1977 Topps Star Wars Series 2 Set Details
Continuing from where the first set left off, the 1977 Topps Star Wars Series 2 checklist runs from #67 through #132.
Base cards have images from the film, mixing horizontal and vertical layouts. Besides the color change from blue to red, the borders are now a solid color. As many collectors recognize, Series 1 also had a space design worked into the borders.
A caption gives a brief, often overly dramatic, take on what's happening on the card. The Star Wars logo and card number are inside a yellow "explosion" at the bottom of the cards. Card backs are a mix of story summaries and puzzles.
Covering #12 to #22, Stickers hold the same design as Series 1. Most of the stickers profile specific characters, although some also have shots from the film.
Boxes again offer 36 packs with one sticker coming in each pack.
