The third and final series of standard cards for the Empire Strikes Back film again had only 88 cards and 22 stickers. This gave the three series a combined 352 cards and 88 stickers. The final series of stickers were all alphabet stickers with no character pictures. The cards themselves had a green and yellow border.

This is actually a fairly interesting card set in part because of all of the artwork. Many of the character drawings are now very familiar as the comic book images for each character. Additionally, the series includes artwork by the production artists, and some interesting behind-the-scenes images. Including a favorite miniature image of the Falcon.

The alphabet stickers were also an interesting quirk for this set. While very fun for sticking on things and trying to spell out your name, etc., the particular letters chosen for the set appear to be random. They don't seem to spell anything out at least.
