The only minor quibbles I have with this volume are that they end up wasting a bit of space by not blowing up the card scans to fill out more of the pages, and they didn't take care to feature keep corresponding cardbacks with their fronts. As for the former, I know a lot of folks suggest that the card scans are presented at full size, but they're actually larger than standard trading cards. So if they were going to go ahead and present them in a larger format they might as well have gone ahead and made them even larger to fill out the book. With the latter, I understand that a large number of the cards feature puzzle-backs that would not make sense to showcase individually next to the card fronts, but they could have at least done this with the cards that had story or fun-fact card backs. It would keep the reader from having to flip around in the book to get the feel of the card set. Just my two cents.
All in all, this is a wonderful addition to the Topps/Abrams trading card series and I hope that we'll soon see an announcement for a third volume concentrating on the Return of the Jedi sets after they release volume two this coming April.
I can't recommend this highly enough.
The only slight gripe I have with the book is the quality of the pictures taken of the cards. All of them aren't perfect, as it seems that the author took pictures from used cards to create this book. It doesn't detract from my overall excellent opinion of the content, but I was expecting better quality from the source.
But even better, now I have a 4 year old who loves all things Star Wars. I brought out the original cards to show to him a couple of times and he loved ‘em. But who knows, those cards could be worth something someday (probably already are) and pay for his college tuition (or for a walker for me!), so rather than risk them getting wrecked by the little one, $14 to get them all in one book is a small price to pay for the “insurance” (and the convenience), and getting to relive the excitement and enjoy them with your kid.
Anyhow, I am probably going to get the "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" books too eventually. It looks like they have these for all the movies!
