2014 Topps Star Wars Wacky Packages Trading Cards
The Star Wars Universe is no stranger to parodies. Whether it's something high-profile like Spaceballs or some strange costumes at your local comic con, the options are endless. Now trading card collectors get their turn with 2014 Topps Star Wars Wacky Packages.
The set mashes up two of the most popular and longest running entertainment card properties of all-time. It sticks with the Wacky Packages theme of poking fun at foods and other products you'd expect to find at a grocery store. But there's a twist. It's poking fun at products you might find in the world of Star Wars. There's some familiarity from both worlds.
The 2014 Topps Star Wars Wacky Packages base set has 100 cards. This includes 50 different card fronts, each with two different backs. Flip sides include a mix of puzzles, ads, coupons and checklists. Parallels include Blue (one per pack), Gold (1:8 packs), Printing Plates and Gold Star Field (#/10).
Reality TV (ten cards, 1:2 packs) puts a Star Wars spin on ten shows we're familiar with. For Star Tours fans, there are ten Travel Posters (1:4 packs) that tackle top tourist destinations in the Star Wars Universe. Coloring Cards (1:6 packs) offer line art from ten base cards that collectors can color as they see fit. Fold-Out Comic Book Ads (1:12 packs) take a retro-styled approach to create over-sized inserts.
Four Bonus Stickers can be found exclusively in hobby boxes.
As far as hits go, collectors can find randomly inserted sketch cards and Artist Autographs. Unlike past sets that have used stickers, autographs are signed on-card.
Estimated Release Date: TBA - the set has been cancelled, although it is possible it could resurface.
Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, 10 cards per pack
