Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire
Topps - 1996

Notes:  This one is causing confusion for people who weren't there when the set was first
issued: Topps made an unusual experiment with the set numbering, choosing to put the chase
cards in the middle of the numbering sequence.  So, the 90-card basic set comprises card
numbers 1-72 and 83-100.  Thanks much to Wess Worden, Ron Risher, John Oder, and  
Neil Tring for updates!

Box: 36 packs of 9 cards.
Common sets (90): approx. 3.53 per box if collation were perfect.
