the best cards they did for me was the 1st lord of the rings,cracking inserts.the box toppers were stunning aswell and the auto list for a cast like that has never been beaten.every major star signed.i just wish they would lose them awful sticker autos!!

Can't argue with that. To be honest, as bad as Topps can sometimes be I think their LOTR:FOTR release had what is probably the best roster of autographs for any non-sport set ever. As you say every important player signed and the vast majority are all major Hollywood stars - its a real achievement Topps pulled it off.

I think X-Men: The Movie comes a close second for me as everyone apart from Halle Berry signed. Overall, perhaps a little less A-List, but some VERY good names in there nonetheless.

What happened to Topps? They used to be so good at this... Frown

Superm Returns was also great as far as the autograph lin-up beside the stickers of course.

I remember when they got Kevin Spacey to sign - that was quite a coup (such a great actor). If memory serves, weren't there only about 5 autos for that set? Yes we got Routh as Superman but apart from Spacey there wasn't much to get excited about IMO.

Topps is up and down in my book . Star Wars episodes 1-3 they failed on getting Auto's . Episodes 4-6 the main cast mostly all signed at least one time . Indiana Jones they did well on as well . I think they really need to do a big Star Wars set for 1-3 ... cough , sorry off subject there . If they get Bale to sign and a few others it will be big . As for the stickers... They are what they are but i believe a numbered sticker on back ( serial number ) that could be looked up on line would be better but i will take what i can .

If they insist on stickers I wish they would take a page out of Leaf's book and make them clear. Then I would be able to look past it and make the purchase. But I cant stand the distracting holographic stickers where you have to tilt the card to see the autograph in all its glory.

That was a tough pull,they were topping the £700 mark when they 1st come out.i seen one sold for £150 a few months back.its always worth waiting for the price to settle.one off movies always seem to get cheaper as time goes by?

Have I missed something?

Topps always had the Batman Begins licence so we assume they had it for The Dark Knight but did not issue a set for whatever reason. Is there confirmation they are actually putting out a set for The Dark Kight Rises?

I'm confused now myself so I deleted my previous post. Has Topps announced they are doing a set or is this thread just speculation? Confused

So are they making cards for The Dark Knight Rises? Thats what I thought you were saying might be happening with this thread (i.e. more sticker autos to look forward to)

Topps has been using the clear stickers for years, not sure why they use the holographic ones at all anymore.

I decided to e-mail Topps customer service last night and ask them if they have the license and are doing a card set and here's the reply I got:

"I have not been informed if we are in fact making this product, so unfortunately I cannot confirm this at the time.

Regards,

Topps CST"

So who knows.

Topps could do with a good movie set release after the last one I remember was a total failure, Terminator Salvation. I don't know if we could be sure Topps could get Christian Bale to sign for a Batman set when they didn't get him to sign for TS.

I wouldn't believe in a Dark Knight Rises set unless I saw it on the shelves because Topps tend to announce things and then never release them. What happened to the Avatar set? What happened to the other Terminator sets? They buy these licenses then nothing comes of them and I can't imagine Avatar would have been cheap.
