No Wookies were harmed in the making of 2013 Topps Star Wars Jedi Legacy. Ewoks, maybe, but definitely not Wookies. It took dozens of sets and more than 35 years, but the first pack-inserted Star Wars relic cards are finally here. One of the central hits in the release, 2013 Topps Star Wars Jedi Legacy Relic Cards include locks of hair, bits of fur and several sail swatches.
Relic cards come in three different varieties. Chewbacca hair is the rarest, falling 1:30 boxes. These come in four different designs. Five different cards with pieces of a sail from Jabba the Hutt's sail barge are inserted at a combined 1:14 boxes. The most common 2013 Topps Star Wars Jedi Legacy Relic Cards have pieces of Ewok fur. There are eight different cards that cover several different characters. These are inserted 1:5 boxes.
According to card backs, the prop pieces come from the Prop Store, where larger Star Wars props and memorabilia are also available.
While these are the first-ever Star Wars relics found in packs, the distinction of the franchise's first relic card goes to a special issue of Non-Sport Update Magazine. The variant issue was sold at the 2010 Chicagoland Entertainment Collectors Expo and was limited to 300 copies. Fully licensed by Topps, it was connected to the Star Wars Galaxy line and had a painting of an Ewok by Mark McHaley. A piece of Ewok fur was used for the creature's belly.
