Star Wars Galaxy 6, base card art

Here's a look at my base card for the Star Wars Galaxy 6 set, which comes out early next month. I submitted a few ideas to Topps, and this is the one my editor wanted me to run with -- It's a glimpse at a younger Obi-Wan and Satine, along with Qui-Gon Jinn. In the Clone Wars cartoon, we're introduced to Duchess Satine and learn that years earlier, the Republic had sent Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to Mandalore to protect her for a year, during a time of Mandalorian civil war. Obi-Wan and the duchess developed strong feelings for each other, but ultimately - as we know - he chose the Jedi path.
