Honoring another notable point in the history of Star Wars, 2017 Topps Star Wars 40th Anniversary provides detailed coverage for the entire franchise. Hobby boxes each contain two hits.
It might seem hard to believe that A New Hope, the original Star Wars film, debuted so long ago, but the 1977 release was the start of one of the biggest movements in modern entertainment. 2017 Topps Star Wars 40th Anniversary revisits the key points over the years with storyline base cards and various artwork.
Subsets in the 200-card base set include Behind the Scenes, History of Star Wars, Movie Moments, Poster Art and The Saga Timeline. Among the parallels are Green (1 per pack), Blue (1:4 packs), Purple (#/100), Gold (#/40 - Hobby), Red (1/1 - Hobby) and Printing Plate (1/1) editions.
Combining to average two hits per hobby box, 2017 Topps Star Wars 40th Anniversary offers several premium inserts. This includes over 30 cast and crew 40th Anniversary Autographs with Purple (#/50), Gold (#/10 - Hobby), Red (1/1 - Hobby) and Printing Plate (1/1) versions. Much more limited are the hobby-only Dual Autographs (#/3), Triple Autographs (#/3), Quad Autograph Book (#/2) and Six-Person Autograph Book (#/2) inserts.
Medallion cards showcase commemorative metal relics for the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star paired with popular subjects. Base versions of these are joined by Blue (#/199), Purple (#/99), Gold (#/25), Red (#/10) and Autographed (#/10) parallels. Sketch cards display notable characters or scenes with original artwork while Buyback hits consist of autographs and relics from earlier products.
Given the popularity of the franchise, milestone anniversaries are regularly covered for Star Wars. Topps issued a similar card set in 2007 that celebrated the 30th anniversary.
