The Close Encounters Topps Trading Cards That Don't Feature The Main CharacterIn 1978, Topps released a highly anticipated set of trading cards complete with their infamous chewing gum based on the Steven Spielberg UFO classic, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. An interesting fact about the 66 card set is none of them feature the main character, Richard Dreyfuss (Roy Neary) or François Truffaut (Claude Lacombe.) This was down to the company not securing rights to feature their likeness. Instead, the card set focused on Ronnie Neary and her children.
Since we never had a Topps Close Encounters of the Third Kind trading card with Roy Neary, here's my no. 67 photo shopped edition - Rob
The Bearded Trio - The Site For Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, John Williams and a whole lot more.
