Top 10 2012 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7 Sketch Card Sales
During its first week of sales, 2012 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7 is moving well. This shouldn't be a surprise as it's always one of the best received entertainment products of the year. Leading the way are the sketch cards. With a huge mix of artists, styles and subjects, it will be a long time before the property feels stale. The first week of sales reflects this, with huge amounts being spent on some of these mini masterpieces.
The top sketch card sale so far belongs to long-time hobby favorite, Katie Cook. Featuring Princess Leia in her Boushh disguise from Return of the Jedi, the sketch card netted nearly $900. The next three spots belong to Sean Pence, whose work aims for photo-realistic details. Combined, the three cards sold for $2,200 (two for $750 and another at $700). Rounding out the top five is a Boba Fett by Gary Kezele.
It is also worth noting that not all the sketch cards are bringing prices worthy of a month's mortgage. 2012 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7 sketch cards have sold as low as $2.35 plus shipping. A lot of it depends on the amount of detail put into the card. The artist, the amount of color and the character can also impact the price of a sketch card. Because different artists do varying amounts of cards, rarity can also swing prices as many collectors go after samples from every artist in a release.
Sketch cards are the big chase in 2012 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7, falling one per hobby box.
