1995 Topps X-Files Season 1 Trading Cards

The truth is out there -- 1995 Topps X-Files Season 1 trading cards are weird. A mix of show content and bizarre artwork stemming from the show, the set is small and relatively straightforward. In part, that's probably why it's still very affordable and available.

The base set has 72 cards. Although it doesn't go into a ton of detail, it is broad in scope. Every first season episode has a card. On top of those, there are character bios, behind-the-scenes cards, a title card and a couple of checklists. A lot of the set's strangeness comes with the Paranormals subset that uses dated artwork rather than photos.

All 72 base cards have a Foil parallel. Inserted one per pack, putting a set together isn't difficult. The only difference from the base card is a small foil stamp on the front. If you're not looking for them, they're easy to miss.

1995 Topps X-Files Season 1 has two additional insert sets. Six Etched Foil cards either recycle cover art from the Topps comics or something close to it. These are inserted 1:8 packs. Finest Chromium cards are inserted 1:18 packs. The set has four cards.

This is the first of three seasonal sets of X-Files trading cards from Topps.
