TOPPS STAR WARS CARD COUNTDOWN #1
Card #131 from the red (second) series set.
This was my favorite card from childhood and now it's the final card of the countdown. I always imagined that some X-Wing pilot went after Darth Vader after the Death Star was destroyed. I liked this card so much, I did a drawing of it when I was seven.
Hopefully everyone enjoyed the card countdown and sorry if your favorite cards didn't make the list. I know to some it was kind of anticlimactic, especially if you were waiting for the x-rated C-3PO card to show up. For the most part, I based the countdown on cards that I liked when I was a kid and I didn't even know that card existed until about 15 years ago. (I've bought and sold many of them since) Also, it's been discussed so many times, that I didn't think it was worth bumping out a different card to add that one in. If you would like, you can see it and read about it here and here.
