Created in 1995, the MasterVision cards continued the theme of the earlier Star Wars Galaxy cards, by presenting the artwork of some of the best Star Wars artists. MasterVision simply displayed these artistic images on a grander scale. Cards in this series were sized at 6 1/2" by 10-3/15". The larger card size did make the images much more clear than the same images when found in the smaller Galaxy series cards. Many non-card Star Wars collectors may never have had a chance to enjoy this somewhat non-traditional set. While these cards may not sort out easily into a binder or card box, they still represent wonderful images from the Star Wars universe, and are well worth owning.
One advantage of the set is the way it is packaged. The cards are shipped in a single box, only slightly larger than the cards themselves, each box contains a complete set of 36 cards. No need to buy packs of cards, and end up with many duplicate singles while trying to complete a set.
Each card in the set features artwork by a known Star Wars artist on the front, along with the Star Wars logo, and the MasterVision logo. The card back has a two tone version of the same artwork as a background, along with the name of the artist.
