    Did anyone ever collect a set of cards during G1 that had the Transformer's box art and tech specs on them, along with a bunch of screen captures from different season 1 episodes? I have a ton of them though not a complete set, but I have never seen anything about them online. Does anyone know what they might be worth?

    They pop up on eBay from time to time... large sets and unopened packs go for decent money. But then I've seen sellers letting them go for about $1 each....

    I had hundreds of them. I think I have a complete set.

    They also came with cool stickers!

    I am gonna have to look through my old boxes to see if I can find them all.

    Along with the character cards, there were episode pictures from the show with mini plot descriptions on the back.
