Soon to be fourth graders, Jason DeNoyelles, left, and Damion Reid with their collection of Return of the Jedi cards at Ashland Elementary School on May 15, 1984. DeNoyelles had been collecting for about two years and had about 100 cards. Reid had 185 cards and started collecting a year before when he lived in New York. He had been trying to find a Death Star card and had bought several packages of cards, but that particular one has not been in them.    He said he planned to keep the cards. "When I'm about 20 they'll be worth a lot," he said. The latest installment of the Star Wars series, "Rogue One", opens in Lexington theaters tonight. Photo by John C. Wyatt | Staff
