TOPPS STAR WARS CARD COUNTDOWN #27
Card #146 from the yellow (third) series set.
If I had to pick out the top 30 Star Wars cards when I was seven, this card would not have made the cut. But now this card just makes me chuckle and deserves to be in the top 30.
I doubt that many kids coveted this card for their collection and I’m certain in the history of kids trading bubble gum cards this one was probably never traded.
“Ooh, you have the Luke Skywalker’s aunt preparing dinner card! I’ll trade you two Terry Bradshaws, four Wacky Packages stickers, a Reggie Jackson and a Farrah Fawcett-Majors for that card!” This scenario just never happened.
Of course, if it was signed by Shelagh Fraser, then we’d be talking trade!
