The 1977 Topps Star Wars design is one of the most iconic of all-time, not just in entertainment cards but in all areas of trading cards. That look is being brought over the diamond for 2015 Topps MLB Star Wars Tribute, a limited edition set of over-sized cards and prints.
Available exclusively on the Topps website for one day only, May 4, each of the ten players in the release has four different versions. Numbered to 10 are prints measuring 10x14. These showcase players with either the blue borders found in 1977 Topps Star Wars Series 1 or the Series 2 red borders. Both colors have five players. These prints also have Gold versions that limited to just one copy each. Regular versions for each player were sold with an initial price tag of $49.99 while Gold prints were $99.99.
2015 Topps MLB Star Wars Tribute also has full sets. These are done on Heritage-style card stock and measure 5x7 inches. The regular version of the set of ten cards (blue and red borders) is limited to 49 copies. They sold out quickly at $49.99. Gold versions, which also sold out very fast, are limited to 25 copies each and were available originally for $99.99.
The checklist has a mix of current and retired players. Among them are Kris Bryant, Derek Jeter, Cal Ripken and Mike Trout.
