Topps also issued 10,000 factory sets. Each came packaged inside a container shaped like the Millennium Falcon and was foil embossed.

Series 2 were numbered beginning at 141, and ending at 275. There were six chase cards for the set, also numbered as a continuation of the Series I set; 7 through 12.

A Factory Set was also available for the Galaxy Series 2 cards. The Factory Set contained 135 regular cards, a “Coming Soon” card, Ralph McQuarrie #00 card, a Series 2 limited edition hologram, Widevision SWP#0, and Foils 7-12 done with a lighter background than their standard issue counterparts. The Factory Set was packaged in a tin.

Series 3 completed the work begun in Star Wars Galaxy Series 1 and 2 with cards in the set are numbered 276 – 365. Six more etched foil puzzle cards completed the set, numbered 13-18. This set also had a subset of the cards bear a small gold stamp with the Lucas Arts logo – 12 cards. There are six additional inserts, chase cards called Clear Zone — all of bounty hunters.

Following the pattern in their sports lines, Topps issued of cards with a small gold foil “first day production” stamp in one corner. It is possible to complete a full set of first day cards.

It wasn’t until 2009 when a series 4 arrived. Here Topps was praised for reaching out to both established artists within the Lucasfilm universe, and to new artists to create a selection of wonderful images can be found on the 120 base cards for Star Wars Galaxy 4.

Approximately every 3rd pack contained a chase card with extremely rare hologram foil parallel cards.

The card series were continued in subsequent years. Check back for updates as we compile lists, card to sell and details for each set.
