2008 Inkworks Family Guy Episode IV: A New Hope Trading Cards

Family Guy has never been one to shy away from embracing (and mocking) other shows and movies. This hit new levels with their Star Wars-themed episodes. And in true Star Wars fashion, there was merchandising opportunities to come from it. 2008 Inkworks Family Guy Episode IV: A New Hope is a mash-up release that brings two franchises together.

Unfortunately, if you're looking for anything outside of base cards and some basic inserts, there's nothing to be found. Sketch cards, which were popular in Inkworks' first two Family Guy trading card products, are nowhere to be found.

This is something of a throwback release. The format harkens back to the 1990s, before autographs, memorabilia cards (kind of hard to do) and sketch cards all became expectations. Without any "hits," 2008 Inkworks Family Guy Episode IV: A New Hope has several more basic inserts.

But even the crossover appeal of adding a Star Wars twist wasn't able to help this set as a whole on the secondary market. Today, all aspects of the product are reasonably priced and not overly difficult to find.
