Ah, the images of childhood. Yep, that’s right, Star Wars blister card backs. What, this doesn’t make your heart skip a beat? You obviously don’t belong here. To a boy of the 1970s, there was nothing more exhilarating than finding out that the Star Wars card back had changed to display new figures and vehicles. When the familiar 12-figure card back changed to reveal the second wave of Star Wars figures, girlish screams of joy could be heard throughout the land. Below is just a sampling of the many different Star Wars card backs offered between 1978 and the mid 80s. I did not include some of the more redundant cards, but this pictorial pretty much captures the excitement of Star Wars figure collecting. I think this was the only series of figures which included comprehensive pictures of every figure in the collection on the back of the cards; an invaluable pre-internet collectors resource.
