Following successful multi-series sets for both Star Wars and The Empire Strike Back, it was likely a forgone conclusion that Topps would make trading cards for the final film of the original trilogy. 1983 Topps Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Series 1 is a 132-card set. It's also complimented by a set of 33 stickers (or 66, depending on how much of a completest you are).

1983 Topps Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Series 1 cards have red borders, compared to the blue Series 2 cards. The design is very simple. The red borders give way to a small black and yellow inner border that holds both an image and a caption. Following a title card that has an image of the film's poster, there are 12 character cards. Cards 14 to 130 recap the film. The final two spots of the set are checklists.

The card backs are, perhaps, the greatest strength of 1983 Topps Star Wars Return of the Jedi Series 1. Besides a large amount of text, each card has a full-body drawing of one of the film's key characters.

Like earlier sets from the franchise, Stickers are inserted one per pack with 33 making up a set. Each sticker has a character cropped to fit inside a shape. Stickers have a background that is either red, yellow, purple, blue or green. Although there are 33 spots on the checklist, each sticker comes in two colors making a master set 66 Stickers.

  1. I have one pack of those with Luke Skywalker on the front, unopened. How much is this worth?

  2. I have about 20 of cards #9 – 97.
    are they worth anything? they are each in a single plastic sleeve.

  3. I have a few RoN topps cards and don’t kno what they’re worth.
    Can you help ?

  4. Single cards are not worth a lot. If they are professionally graded high (9 or 10) you might get 10.00 a piece at most. You can pick up complete sets for 20-30 dollars easily. The value comes from have complete sets in mint condition with complete set of stickers.

  5. I have 118 1983 unopened series 1 return of the jedi. Would like to sell any ides?
