Star Wars 40th Anniversary Film Cel Relic Card (Topps, 2017)

It just so happens that today is the 40th anniversary of the release of Star Wars.  So, in honor of that, from the newest Topps card set, also called the Star Wars 40th Anniversary, here is one of the 50 "film cel" cards, that each contain a film frame from a genuine print of the film.  The one I chose was, of course, about the Cantina.
The film frame, also from that part of the film, is near the end of the scene--that's a Sandtrooper walking past Han Solo, who is sitting nonchalantly at his table, while one of the Snaggletooth(s) looks on.  This is, of course, directly before him walking around the corner of the booth, and straight into Greedo.  If you look closely at the frame, you can see the soundtrack peeking out of the left margin!

If you want to know everything there possibly is to know about the Cantina scene, check out my comprehensive book on the subject, which can be downloaded for free.  It is the "featured post" at the top of the right side of this blog.
