Topps - US - Star Wars Series 5 (Orange Border) (1977)

The final series of Star Wars cards issued by Topps in 1978. This card set contained a final 66 cards and 11 stickers. The cards for this set were orange bordered, and the stickers had an orange 'film strip' style border. This set of cards expanded to include more behind the scenes coverage of the film. The box also advertised more Cantina scenes, perhaps in response to feedback from kids collecting the cards and stickers.

My cards came in a box from series four that had simply been covered over with a few small stickers to indicate that the cards were for the fifth series, an interesting way to recycle left-over materials from the previous series.

Card Values
  set value: $25-30
  unopened box: $75
  single: $0.25 - 0.50
  sticker: $1
  wrapper: $0.50
