I couldn't really care less about Star Wars cards, but Metallic Impressions made some really nice cards. This card looks really nice too.

@CK42 - The back is probably actual cardboard wrapped in the metal from the front. They made several NASCAR racing sets during that time and usually the front was metal, but the back was a cardboard card inside of the folded edges of the metal front of the card. They are nice and hold up really well over time. If you had one, I think you'd like it and want more of them. Just like Action Packed, I wish this brand was still around!!!

Be careful with these, they WILL rust if they get wet, Including high humidity.


Dialing back. Still ready and willing to trade.

An intersting idea, though I'm not sure if it works.
