As anticipation builds for the Han Solo backstory film, 2018 Topps Countdown to Solo: A Star Wars Story allows collectors to actually count down the days via the online-only cards.
Issued daily, minus weekends, 2018 Topps Countdown to Solo leads up to the Solo: A Star Wars Story theatrical release with a 25-card set.
Fronts feature an image from the movie that highlights key characters. Backs are fairly basic, displaying the colorful skyline and Millennium Falcon border from the front, along with the card number.
The format means that collectors need to pay attention every weekday, as each card is listed individually for just 24 hours. However, fans get a break during the weekend. Single cards sell for $9.99 with free Smartpost shipping, but there are bulk discounts that decrease the price per card. Therefore, if collectors buy as a group, the full set can be obtained for multiple people at a reduced rate.
Because the print run for 2018 Topps Countdown to Solo: A Star Wars is limited to the number ordered during each 24-hour period, overall totals can fluctuate by the subject.
The gallery and checklist below will be updated to reflect new cards and announced print runs.
If this concept sounds familiar, it's because Topps issued a similar set for The Last Jedi.
