Well this is a new one on me, a graded ralph Mcquarrie trading card, just browsing ebay and found this, inexpensive and will look good in the collection of different McQuarrie stuff I have, I wonder if there are more?

There are more of them Ian.  You have card #124 from the ESB series 1 set.

In the ESB Series 1 set (red boarder cards) (Topps and O-Pee-Chee) (American & Canadian sets), there are 13 "Space Paintings".  Card #'s 118 thru 130.

In the ESB Series 3 set (yellow/green boarder cards) (Topps and O-Pee-Chee) (American & Canadian sets), there are 10 "Space Paintings".  Card #'s 336 thru 345.

Thanks guys, very informative, I guess it'll be a stretch to find them all graded like this one, but its another little focus to try and get, thanks for the info Clint Very Happy

Those "space paintings" cards would look awesome together on a single display. Might be something CAS would do but then again, the acrylic would be far more expensive than the items within. I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing though. I dont know if any of you have seen the custom job they did, making a case for the first 5 wax packs, but it's beautiful.

It’s interesting, one of their most original designs in my opinion. They mentioned it on TVR podcast and I looked it up.

Just bought this on ebay, 12 inch scale chewie, in good order apart from one of the cannisters is missing of the bandolier and the arms are a bit loose, but for display purposes it'll do me just fine

A good box with the inserts & manual is tough to find. A good loose vehicle should be fairly easy to find. Well done.
