Over the past few years, on average, Topps has been releasing 6 to 7 SW sets PER YEAR

Besides this, they have another Star Wars Galaxy set coming in the fall !

As to prices for vintage Star Wars sets softening, I have to disagree. The original 3 movies and the sets that came out at the time are holding strong. A PSA 10 1977 #1 Luke Skywalker just sold for $6877 on eBay!!!

With vintage cards the grading becomes vital. If there was such a sale it would be because it was #1 card, which is always likely to get the most damage along with the last card in a set, and because it hit a PSA 10. PSA does not give out a whole lot of 10s on anything, certainly not on a 41 year old #1. So this is an example of the most exceptional kind. Interesting enough a PSA 9 of #1 is on eBay now asking $450, so it goes to show.

It is quite easy to pick up TOPPS base cards, full sets and stickers on the original SW movies. The cards were massively overproduced. They will be here till doomsday. Getting the highest condition is the quest, not getting the card.

The most recent cards for retail are just as overproduced, but the hobby cards have been limited and in some cases extremely limited. Still and all, in the end it will only be the top tier autographs and the best sketches that will be valued and even they may have peaked in terms of price at release. Just MHO.

All of the recent Star Wars sets have been horribly uninspired as far as design goes. Topps has an 80 year history to draw on too, they could produce retro Star Wars cards with 1940s, 1950s, 1960s designs based on their other releases. Think Mars Attacks, Scoops or Batman 1966 but with Star Wars theme, perhaps even painted art (which would require paying an artist so thats out of the question) in the style of Norman Saunders. There's no excuse for these lackustre sets except laziness. But all anyone cares about anymore is autos, so really what's the point of putting any time into making a nice base set? Plus they know there are still people who will buy anything with Star Wars printed on it regardless of quality.

A dealer told me a few months ago that last year's SOLO set sold poorly.

No Masterworks 2019 set coming? Those are the only design from Topps I've liked.

If you are looking you can find Hobby boxes of Solo in the 25 to 30US price range. I picked up 2 boxes at this price.


I got a Warwick Davis auto out of 99 and an awesome Lando Sketch and a patch out of one box.

The other box had a patch and a sketch of the Falcon which was nice.


The base set was standard looking, the card stock was light.


I rather enjoyed the movie so the cards in my opinion are nice at the current price.

Topps did announce it, but I don't think there's a release date yet.
