Branching off from the main Star Wars storyline, 2018 Topps Star Wars Solo goes back to the early days for the smuggler Han Solo via Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Beckett, and Emilia Clarke as Kira, the anticipated film should translate well to cardboard. While specific details are rather sparse for the movie (and set), collectors can look forward to two hits per hobby box, with at least one being an autograph or sketch card.
2018 Topps Star Wars Solo Base / Inserts
Providing a look into the May 2018 film, the 100-card base set covers key characters, moments and artwork. Overall, parallels are quite common and include Yellow (one per pack), Black (1:2 packs), Silver (1:4 packs), Pink (#/99), Orange (#/25), and one-of-one Printing Plate options, of which there are four for each card. There are also hobby-only Gold (#/10) and Imperial Red (1/1) parallels.
The 2018 Topps Star Wars Solo inserts combine to average one per pack, and consist of Character Stickers, Icons, Silhouettes, Ships and Vehicles, and Smooth Sayings.
2018 Topps Star Wars Solo Autographs / Sketch / Patch
Like Rogue One before it, 2018 Topps Star Wars Solo promises the normal array of premium inserts. Guaranteed one sketch or autograph per hobby box, the hand-drawn Sketch cards and cast Autographs should both see considerable attention. The signed cards also have Pink (#/99), Orange (#/25), Gold (#/10 - Hobby), Imperial Red (1/1 - Hobby), and Printing Plate (1/1) chases.
Even more rare, the Dual Autograph cards combine two signers for the base and hobby-only Gold (#/10) and Imperial Red (1/1) parallels. Pushing that another level, Triple Autograph cards go for the trifecta, adding a one-of-one Imperial Red.
The last hit insert is the themed Manufactured Patch set with Pink (#/99), Orange (#/25), Gold (#/10 - Hobby), Imperial Red (1/1 - Hobby) versions.
