Star Wars Finest - Series One
Topps - 1996

Notes:  Also distributed as a factory set.  A parallel refractor set was produced.
The Shadows of the Empire "Reservation" coupon was distributed in packs and
is sometimes included in the base set.  Some cards were either short-printed or
short-distributed, especially the low numbers, making it difficult to complete
common sets.  Thanks much to Wess Worden and Neil Tring for updates!

Box: 36 packs of 5 cards.
Common sets: approx. 1.89 per box if collation were perfect
  and if there were no short-prints.
