Looking for uncut Star Wars, ESB, RoTJ card sheets
I know this is a hunt for unicorns, but I'm looking for Topps uncut sheets of cards from the original 3 Star Wars movies. I'm primarily looking for Star Wars series 4 and 5 and all series from ESB and ROTJ.

Any information on where some might be located or who might be willing to sell, please let me know. I know these are few and far between, but it never hurts to ask I suppose. Thanks for any help.

Unicorns may be easier to find, particularly compared to the original set uncut sheets from 1977-78. Those are very seldom seen.

An uncut sheet of the 132 card Empire Series II set sold for $75 on Ebay a couple of weeks ago, but even those don't show up often.

There does seem to be a lot more of the sticker sets available, including some from the 1977 set, and the 1983 Jedi sticker sheets seem fairly plentiful.

Good luck on your search!

I'm the one that bought the ESB sheet and the guy refused to ship it flat, so it showed up rolled too tight and full of creases...waste of money on that one.

I've got a full set of the Jedi stickers all graded PSA Gem Mint 10 (and only about 8 shy of both color variations graded PSA 10). Trying to work on the cards more now and those full sheets look nice framed up. Thanks for the reply!

I have a friend who has some uncut sheets but I think they are the sticker sets for ESB and ROTJ, I will ask him if he has them still and what they are.

I wouldn't trust anyone but an experienced movie poster dealer to ship a cardboard sheet rolled. Frankly, due to the heavy stock of trading cards I'm amazed uncut sheets can be rolled at all.

Such a shame and a waste by a careless seller. I hope you got your money back.

I only asked for half the money back (which he gave me) as I was able to carve the sheet up for singles that finished off some sets. Hurt to cut it up though.
