The Force Awakens Cards Coming From Topps in December
It’s a new Star Wars movie. Of course there are going to be new trading cards. Topps confirmed at the Industry Summit in Las Vegas that they’re making two sets based on Episode VII. 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 tackles the characters and bits of the story. The later second set follows after the movie’s theatrical release, telling the entire story.
The 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 base set has 100 cards. While the card maker has yet to reveal exactly what they’ll look like, they did say they’ll be done in a full-bleed format, so no borders. There are five levels of parallels including Printing Plates.
The product has multiple basic inserts totaling 90 cards. Foil cards and Stickers are among them.
Autographs play a key role in the premium insert portion of the set. Besides basic actor autographs, there are dual-, triple- and quad-signatures. Quads are done with a book card format that has, essentially, two cards connected together. 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 also has one-of-one Pen Relic Autographs that have pieces of the marker used during the signing. Autographed Printing Plates are also randomly inserted.
Other hits-based inserts include sketch cards and Medallion cards that come with bronze, silver and gold versions.
