Product Details

User Rating:

Despite a generous initial release that included 132 cards and 33 stickers, 1980 Topps Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Series 2 further expands the franchise.

Adding another 132 cards and 33 stickers, the "New Series" set has a similar look and feel to its predecessor.

1980 Topps Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Series 2 Set Details

Following a title card, the 1980 Topps Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Series 2 checklist works in 10 Starcraft cards that look at the film's most recognizable spaceships. However, the meat of the base selection still comes from the story and character cards. The set closes with 12 behind-the-scenes cards and two checklists.

Visually, there is not much difference between the Series 1 and Series 2 designs. On the front, the inner border has blue instead of red.

Card backs have a yellow outer border. Also, rather than standard synopsis descriptions on the back, the story and character cards have trivia questions.

The 1980 Topps Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Series 2 Stickers once again fall one per pack. Most are alphabet stickers, which were also used in the first set. They have characters inside die-cut letters. Character stickers are labeled "Empire Forces" or "Rebel Forces." Series 2 Stickers have blue borders versus the yellow used in Series 1.
