Default New Topps Star Wars Set for May the 4th?

I only just saw the facebook post. I don't have the details yet. Discuss among yourselves.


EDIT:
- Online exclusive
- 20 card set
- 1 autograph
- random base parallels
- more details tomorrow

No price given. Looks to be Vintage '77 design inspired sold under the Topps On Demand brand.

will depend on the signer list. To me, this looks like that weekly "Topps Now" or whatever they called it, that was printed to demand, but was expensive to keep up with.

What's also interesting is that it is using the imprint Topps On Demand... not Topps NOW! But will likely be another set printed to order after X amount of time?

I wish Topps would let you order a set from each week and put them into one shipment. Shipping is what made me avoid the rogue one cards they did.

I'm very curious since we see three border colors, will this be like sugar free with a few parallels? And how will odds work if on demand?

So many questions haha. I want that yoda card, but this needs to be under like $50

This set looks awesome, very much like the Celebration 2017 4 card set and the larger 5x7 exclusives from SDCC, NYCC, etc. I wonder when it will go live.

Wonder what the production run will be and what the parallels will be. If there are only 20 base cards, are we looking at parallels numbered to 300 or so or a very limited print run (couple hundred sets) with low numbered parallels

So far all they posted is 15% off Topps Authentics site, but they don't even have the 40th merch on there!

It's after noon east coast already so I don't know what the hold up is, only they can be so unorganized.

Available for 7 days. $60.00? I suppose I have to have one. Can't have too many Tim Rose or Mike Quinn autos after all. *there's no puke emoji*


Almost half of the autos are desirable at least.

I wonder how many of these will be inserted:
1. Han Solo - Harrison Ford
2. Luke Skywalker - Mark Hamil
3. The Emperor - Ian McDiarmid
4. Princess Leia - Carrie Fisher
5. Lando - Billy Dee Williams
10. R2D2 - Kenny Baker
11. C3PO - Anthony Daniels
12. Bobba Fett - Jeremy Bulloch


Vs the total number of these:
6. Ackbar - Tim Rose
7. Nien Nunb - Mike Quinn
8. Jabba - Toby Philpott
9. Greedo - Paul Blake
13. Piett - Kenneth Colley
14. Jawa - Rusty Geoff
15. MOthma - Caroline Blakistan
16. Admiral Ackbar (voice) - Erik Bauersfeld
17. Jabba Puppeteer - David Barclay

$60 per set, available for 7 days. It sounds like the more that is bought, the lower your chances are of getting a base parallel, auto parallel, or top auto. I'd guess there is a certain number of the top autos and they'll fill the rest with the lower autos as it's bought.

Wait, can someone explain the different pricing options?
It gets cheaper as you buy more sets? If you buy the 10 set bundle, do you get one auto or 10 autos?

All are sticker autos, if that matters to anyone.

I would put Bauersfeld in the "desirable" list. What little autos of his are out there don't go cheap. I don't think I've ever seen one less than $50.

I just picked up 20 of them. Something nice to just stash away and forget about.

Never mind, you don't get the auto box then for each set, just one total.

I just about did, because I don't have one yet and he is deceased, but I wasn't sure if there was general demand. I didn't know they sold so high.

So that would put more than half in the desirable category, but no doubt the total number of those inserted will be limited.

Just a guess, but I'd assume the /10 and /1 would be for the biggest names only, with Ford likely not even having 11. But I'd bet the non numbered will be printed once the 187 parallels, aka first 187 are sold.

They should reveal print run afterwards like TOPPS now does for baseball.
