Top 10 Star Wars Autographs

Top 10 Star Wars Autographs

Star Wars is the most popular entertainment trading card franchise of all-time. Since Topps put out the first set in 1977, literally dozens of different sets have covered the films in almost every way imaginable. In recent years, autograph cards have been made of the top characters in the franchise, including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Boba Fett and Darth Vader. Even bit-role aliens have had signed cards.

Here's a list of the top 10 Star Wars autographs put on trading cards:

1. Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Star Wars 30th Anniversary (Topps, 2007)

Rumored to be limited to just ten copies, this card has sold for as much as $10,000. A notoriously tough signer, Ford finally came through. The card features a classic pose of Han Solo holding up his blaster.

2. Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Star Wars Heritage (Topps, 2004)

The key hero in the original trilogy, Luke Skywalker has been featured a handful of autographed cards thus far. Mark Hamill's first, and most popular, autograph comes from 2004's Star Wars Heritage.

3. Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa, Star Wars Evolution (Topps, 2001)

Carrie Fisher has been a relatively frequent signer for Topps' Star Wars sets. Her first, from 2001's Star Wars Evolution, was the rarest card in the first Star Wars set to include autographs. It was inserted at a rate of 1:3,577 packs. Despite the costume's iconic status, there's still no Slave Leia autograph depicting Fisher in her slinky bikini as Jabba the Hutt's prisoner.

4. Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Star Wars Evolution (Topps, 2001)

Anthony Daniels is a curious case. Known pretty much solely for a single role in which his voice is never seen, his autographed cards still command big dollars. Both Daniels' Star Wars Evolution and Star Wars 30th Anniversary cards command hundreds of dollars on the secondary market.

5. Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Widevision (Topps, 2005)

Only a couple of prequel signatures make the cut on this list. For Samuel L. Jackson, the popularity of his Episode III Widevision autograph is largely due to his overall popularity as one of Hollywood's most popular and active stars. The fact that it was inserted 1:2795 packs helps too.

6. Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars Evolution Update (Topps, 2006)

Five years after the first Star Wars Evolution set was released, Topps went back to the concept and created an update set to encompass the recently completed prequels. While the set was deemed a failure by many collectors, largely because many of the autographs packed out damaged, one card stood far above the rest: an autograph of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker. The card was inserted 1:4010 packs.

7. Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Star Wars Evolution (Topps, 2001)

Another card from Star Wars Evolution, Billy Dee Williams was one of the toughest cards to find in the set. The hundreds of dollars it sells for is a testament to the importance of Star Wars name on a card as more recent Williams autographs from generic celebrity-themed sets go for a fraction of the price.

8. James Earl Jones as Darth Vader, Star Wars Heritage (Topps, 2004)

James Earl Jones is one of the few people on this list not to appear on-screen. However, his deep voice helped make Darth Vader one of the greatest movie villains of all-time. Jones has signed for other sets, however the rarity of his Star Wars Heritage signature make it the most valuable.

9. Frank Oz as Yoda, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones Widevision (Topps, 2002)

Although Yoda is one of the most beloved characters in all of Star Wars, Frank Oz has also touched millions by bringing characters like Grover, Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear to life. The Episode II Widevision set is loaded with autographs, however this one is the best.

10. Ian McDiarmid as Senator Palpatine, Star Wars Evolution (Topps, 2001)

Ian McDiarmid is one of the one actors to appear in all six Star Wars films. He began as the nefarious Emperor, the puppet master of the Dark Side. In the prequels, he was still pulling the evil strings, although it wasn't quite as obvious. McDiarmid's Star Wars Evolution autograph is his only signed card thus far.
