User Rating:

1983 Topps Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Series 2 is an important set in that it was the final release for the original trilogy. While the first film reached five sets and The Empire Strikes Back had three, interest in Return of the Jedi waned after the second set.

Dropping from 132 cards down to 88, the base set shares the same design except the borders are blue instead of red. Photos on the front highlight the film's action, characters, strange aliens and spaceships. Rather than doing another set of plot recaps like in the first series, card backs are filled with trivia.

Every pack of 1983 Topps Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Series 2 comes with a sticker. Like the base set, the checklist for these is smaller as well. The first set had 33 stickers (66 if you count color variations). This set as just 22. They have a more traditional design that is almost identical to the ones made for the first film. Stickers come in two designs. The first features characters surrounded by a thick orange border. The other stickers take clips from the film and border them with an orange film-like border. Both designs have a plain white background. Backs double as puzzle pieces.
