Final Pack Of The Year- Empire Strikes Back 3D
This release is rather small with a 48-card checklist, the set also includes sketch cards (1:72 packs) and autograph cards. Each box contains 24 packs with 3 cards a pack so you should be able to complete a set with just 1 box with sketch cards coming 1 in every 3 boxes. The cards are printed on a heavier stock in the tall boy fashion, what Topps usually describes as “Widevision”. Boxes are running under $50 each, I picked up this pack for $2 at Target.
The first card shows Luke on his Tauntaun checking in after seeing the asteroid striking the ground on Hoth. The back of each card contains a description of the scene, a trivia fact and two images.
Next up is Vader and Boba Fett showing up at Bespin City. This card looks like there was a printing error which can be seen in the scan. Boba Fett’s images were printed farther apart than they were supposed to be to create the 3D image which left the image feathery and blurry.
