UD do artist autos for all of the base and inserts in both of the recent Marvel Fleer Ultra sets, 2017 Spider-man and 2018 X-men, I think they may have even done it in another Marvel set previous to them. They are numbered /49 and some of them are quite collectible/valuable and I quite like them as a parallel. I would expect the cost to produce these would be almost negligible - and likely just included in the contract agreement when they get the artist to create the art. Feels like a low effort high benefit opportunity here. As long as they are not used to replace actor autos or sketches I think its a good thing.

The other big online stores still have them at release price though I donít know the stock supply. Be nice see something go up in Star Wars versus down .

I agree, the sketch cards as a whole in the two cases I broke were junk and the sticker autos look bad. I have sketch cards from earlier releases of galaxy that are great. As a whole its not a bad release and it appears to be short print so we will see. I put a case away but I might open it next week when i am off. I am not sure about the upside of holding on to it.

I thought the sketch cards for this release were really nice but, as others have pointed out, the market is flooded right now. Not just by Probstein, but by Topps themselves.

Tell me about it - I picked up a Hardy AND a Maell from other sets over the weekend for not much over $100 (total, not each!), AND got money off one of them from eBay's 15% code.

It really does make sticking to a budget incredibly difficult!

An Obi /25 was just posted in a break on Facebook.

I think it was the same way with witwer/stanton out of 2018 MW (/25 and up only):



Side note: Seems kinda wrong to have almost the same card (but on card sigs) for stellar duals.

cardgarys just listed a ton of Galaxy. No big hits or anything that I noticed, unless there's more to come or he is keeping some.

Iíll never understand cardgarys listings. Heíll put the base autos of a $10 signer in a 0.99 auction and also BIN for $70 when everyone else is at $10 BIN.

This listing title did make me laugh though

Maybe that whole Slave Leia was just in regards to toys or somehow Topps snuck this one past Disney?

Either way, can't hide something that was obvious in the movies and super iconic in pop culture as a whole.
