High-end is finally feeling the Force. 2015 Topps Star Wars Masterwork brings a formula similar to the card maker's Museum Collection line in baseball, promising a hit or premium insert in every pack. Boxes promise one autograph and a premium sketch card.

Sticking with the trend started by 2014 Topps Star Wars Chrome Perspectives, virtually all of the autographs here are on-card. Base autographs come from actors and are done on foil-stamped premium card stock. Parallels include Foil (#/25 or less), Canvas (#/10 or less) and Wood (1/1). Every case also has a Silver Framed Autograph that is numbered to 29 or less.

Five Dual Autograph Book cards are the only signed cards in the product that use stickers.

Signature Pen Autograph Relics are something new. In addition to the signature, the cards come with a piece of the pen used during the signing.

Star Wars sketch cards have been a regular feature in sets for a decade now. However, 2015 Star Wars Masterwork attempts to change things up a little. For the first time, basic sketch cards are done on 72-point card stock, giving them a much thicker feel. Sketch Card Variations have a different logo and are numbered to 10. Wood Sketch Cards use a very different stock and are numbered to 5. Sketch Card Books have a pair of panels with original art. Rare, these are numbered 1/1.

Randomly inserted are 50 mini boxes that have four sketch cards that fit together to form a puzzle.

Production-used relics are still a novelty in Star Wars sets as they've only been used a couple of times before this. Return of the Jedi Bunker Relics include some new materials that haven't been used in cards yet. They're inserted at a rate of three per case.

2015 Topps Star Wars Masterwork has two additional premium inserts. Weapon Lineage Medallions come with a metal piece showcasing a famous tool from the franchise. Postage Stamp Relics have a US stamp embedded in them. These stamps feature artwork from Drew Struzan, one of the most iconic Star Wars artists.

While the premium inserts may be the focal point for many, 2015 Topps Star Wars Masterwork does have a base set. That said, it's not a massive one. Printed on premium 72-point stock, the set has a total of 75 character-driven cards. On top of that, there are four parallels that combine to fall one per pack. Base set parallels are Blue Metallic (#/299), Silver Metallic (#/99), Green Metallic (#/50) and Gold Metallic (1/1).

The product also has a trio of ten-card basic inserts: Defining Moments, Companions and Scum & Villainy. Every pack has either an insert or one of six insert parallels: Foil (#/299), Canvas (#/99), Wood (#/50), Clear Acetate (#/25), Metal (#/10) or Golden Metal (1/1).

Each pack of 2015 Topps Star Wars Masterwork is packaged in its own mini box. Master boxes have four of these.

Estimated Release Date: 2/11/15
Product Configuration: 4 packs per box, 5 cards per pack
Price Point: High-End Entertainment Card
Target Audience: Star Wars Fans, Autograph Collectors, Movie Memorabilia Collectors, Sketch Card Collectors, Hit Seekers

User Comments

  1. I’ve been collecting SW card sets for many years. I currently have all the base cards and insert sets for every Topps SW set ever put out. However, I won’t spend thousands of dollars to build a complete set of base and insert cards for this set. Since that will end my trail of completion, it probably also means I will back off on all future SW sets. Nice job, Topps. Did you even consider all the SW collectors you would alienate with this set?

  2. This is ridiculous. Just the same old stuff with a higher price tag and thicker cardboard. Pass.

  3. This is ridiculous! 20 cards for $250? Insane! Topps has officially proved they are beyond greedy. 3 Star Wars sets in the same year with an average of $200 retail per box price? I’m done with this. I am probably one of the top 5 Star Wars card collectors in the world and I say enough is enough. Most of these cards aren’t worth squat. Each box is a crap shoot to start. The dealers and distributors open the cases and take all the best and sell the other boxes that they know won’t yield a thing to the suckers. I’m so passing on this junk.

  4. WOW!!! Thought my brother’s Christmas present was going to be unforgettable. I’m forgetting this horse crap. Ever wonder why the # of collector’s of sporting, movie, or any other collectible cards have decline? This crap, that OK though, Panini is on your heels, with awesome products and reasonable prices. May the force, NOT, be with you Topps.

  5. I would pit my card collection against anyone’s. I collect all cards from gaming, topps and anything from around the world. I’ve prided myself on having everything printed on card stock, but I’m with the rest of you… This ha sbroken me and my faith in topps. I’ll retire to completing the last remaining vintage cards from other countries and call it quits. Enough is enough already. And how do they expect to keep the younger generation collecting when they can’t even afford to start? Topps is losing their own battle.

  6. Topps is more interested in the dealers than the collectors. Hopefully Disney doesn’t renew their contract with Star Wars

  7. Non sport cards never have any real value other than Ford, Hamill or Fisher autos. This is a nice set, Topps is the best, they have to try something to stay ahead. This is the next step, similar to the high end sports cards.

  8. Looks like this set is going to be awesome. Great artist lineup so far and lots of high quality work. SW needed a somewhat high end set. Hopefully some bigs names will be added.

  9. This set was allocated.Its not a set for every Star Wars collector.It is nice to see Topps doing high end stuff outside of the sports market.If your on a budget and cant afford the boxes,just buy a base set after they are out a while.Im sure they will be affordable and the only reason the boxes are so high is because of the possible hits that can be worth well over the box price.And if your upset because its high,just think of it this way,every car comp[any has low to high end models.Would you not buy a Toyota because a Lexus cost so much?Also,Panin will never have the quality that Topps has.

  10. I am looking forward to breaking a case of this product. Yes it is expensive, but I think it will be worth it. High end collectors will want this set in their collection.

  11. Price is high and it stings, however this separates the men from the boys. There is still cheap sets for the kids. Many collectors will bow out, same as separating the rich from the poor. Go Topps.

  12. This product may upset some of the hardcore Star Wars collectors, however will also bring in a new group of collectors even if for many may be short lived. From what I have seen and read so far, this appears to be limited and not over done like many sports products that Topps has put out recently. People seem to be taking to this product and anticipate that good value will be in this product because prices are increasing dramatically and presale ability is drying up quickly.

  13. Could you please provide the aArtist list for Sketch card? thank you!

  14. Wilson Ho » Topps doesn’t normally release full artist lists unfortunately.

  15. Well I got scre::ed AGAIN by Topps!!! I bought two full boxes of this ($560) at my local hobby shop and what did I get? In two of the mini boxs I got a crap MANUFACTURED RELIC!!! Are you kidding me? For as much as I paid I get 2 crap reman cards that you would get in like a blaster box? After this and 4 other issues I have had with Topps and 2 separate times I was hung up on by a Topps rep for very mildly complaining about a different issue I can now for sure say I AM TOTALLY DONE WITH TOPPS FOR GOOD!!!! As much as I love almost all their baseball sets and love building them I refuse to spend my money on a company who puts out cheap reman stuff in a top shelf product and a company who handles customer issues by hanging up the phone on them and never returning emails. My money will be going to Panini from now on. I know my few thousand dollars a year won’t matter to Topps but it sure as heck matters to me where it goes.

  16. Arkansas Dave » That stinks you were disappointed and your past experiences. Was it 2 manu-relics in one box or one in each? As soon as the set was announced, 1 manu-relic per box was clearly announced as one of the hits, though.

  17. Have you actually seen these cards up close yet? Have you actually held one?

    All boxes are hit or miss no matter what your buying and no matter at what price you paid! Remember that! Do you also expect to hit the lottery every single time you buy a ticket?

    These cards are flat out amazing looking. All of them really are top notch. Yes, the boxes cost ALOT of money, but lets face it, the Masterwork Collection makes your other star wars cards from previous releases look inferior if you ask me, with this set out there completely dominating in all areas of overall coolness, look and feel. I dont see what more you could ask for..

  18. My condolences to TOPPS on Masterworks. I also Have EVERY SW Set made I got hooked 1976. I do love the cards but there are WAY to many subsets and parallels these days.
    To much is to the shops and not in the box stores. that is a part of collecting Buying Box store and trading in the shop, ALOT of shop owners have even forgotten that. I will continue to collect even at 60, but very little of this Masterworks.

  19. I’m a Star Wars fan but out of card collecting for years.. Best thing I can say about SW Masterwork? It brought me into collecting. From the least of them up to the premium rarities, every card really is a masterwork. I’m NOT rich- with careful hunting you can aquire the base set bit by bit on ebay for reasonable prices. Everything else is icing on the cake, and there is lots of icing to be had.

  20. @Steve

    “Non sport cards never have any real value?” Have you not been watching the trading card market as a whole? Sports cards are at a all time low and a lot of sports dealers have finally started selling non-sports cards to help cover the loss they have had with sports cards.
