Vintage Swedish Jabba the Hutt Trading Cards (Stjärnornas krig)

April 15, 2012

These two cards are part of a much larger series of cards released in Sweden in 1983. As with most sets of trading cards, there are quite a lot of them, including a number of other characters from Jabba’s palace and Jabba’s sail barge, etc. But I don’t really feel the need to collect all of them. These two appear to be the only ones primarily featuring Jabba, so that’s good enough for me.

The most interesting thing to me about these is that they are so much smaller than American trading cards — less than 2″ by 3″. They’re also quite plain. There’s nothing whatsoever on their backs, and just a picture and some text on the front. (“Stjärnornas krig” means “Star Wars” in Swedish.) The quality of the photo on the bottom one is better in person, but I had some trouble getting my scanner to pick it up.
