The Empire Strikes Back Cards

Series 2 (Blue Cards)

This is the second series of The Empire Strikes Back trading cards issued by Topps in 1980. 

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 set has a similar look and feel as its predecessor.

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

1980 Topps Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Series 2 look almost exactly the same as Series 1 cards. On the front, the inner border has blue instead of red. Card backs have a yellow outer border. Also, rather than standard synopsis descriptions, 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.
