Thanks for the reply.
It really sucks Hamill hasn't signed as much in recent years. I feel like he should have 50 autos per release, along with all big signers, except Ford due to costs probably.

A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one

Were they both common or base?

I wish Topps would put 2 autos in 1 box per case.
They did this in 2015 High Tek Football.

This years High Tek baseball went to a 40 card with 2 autos per box format. Boxes with a redemption had a 3rd Auto. Price point was obviously higher but I still thought I was getting a good value with it. Not sure this would work with Star Wars due to so many low value autos.

I don't know if there's just too much out right now or what, but I scored a Freddie Prinze Jr. Orange Auto /25 for $26 last night.

I think the Freddie Prinze Jr. autos (like Mikkelsen) were inflated due to the novelty of him being a new signer. So that seems about right for a price when you compare what's happening on the secondary.

There's just too much volume. I went over what I spent bottom feeding on MW3 and Stellar and I'm just completely sitting out High Tek 3. Because I have to. It's just too much man.

I mean, my collection has ballooned and that's at an amazingly low price ... but my conspiracy theory is that I think there's too many flippers now have access to distributor prices. Because it's not that the MSRP of the boxes are plummeting with secondary sales plummeting.

I literally haven't opened anything aside from group breaks because it's so impossibly cheap to buy anything you want right now on feebay.

Look at sketches. Some of the sketches I've "won" have just been criminally low prices. I don't think this is the right thread to brag about ebay wins but dang I now own TWO Glebe bros Star Wars sketches at $142 and $215 I feel like I got an absolute steal on both. I have been able to mark off a litany of higher end artists I thought I would never own. And they're not bad sketches -- ironically it seems like sketch quality has increased since the Jedi Vs Sith Chrome days.

I think everyone can agree that Topps is simply overestimating the capabilities of this market and while we thought there was a limit to market saturation (I remember days when scrub autos were $20 each) there isn't (it's the era of the $5 auto). Right now Topps seems to be asking fans to just trust that they won't keep releasing 15 sets a year of star wars cards.

Nah, I think if that were the case Cathy Munroe autos would be blowing up. I think his cards were typically higher than most because he's got some credit to his name outside of Star Wars. He's been signing SW for what, a year now? His autos rarely go below $50 (at least I think, I haven't tracked them that much).

Well, Donnie Yen is Ipman and it's just insane to me that his autos continue to slide. Riz MC is fairly well known rap artist. They also slide.

For what it's worth I do feel that Cathy Munroe cards are probably selling at +$10 of their eventual value.

Maybe you're right though, I did slow play the Prinze auto acquisition and am glad I did. Believe it or not, back in September I got a Prinze sticker /50 for $30 on COMC. Granted it was much lower than it had been going for ...

I just hope they slow the set releases. I'd love to collect them all but I cannot keep up.

Has it been confirmed there are no ABC variations this year?

The second half of the set is all Rogue One characters, euh. No wonder every pilot and Mon Calamari has a card.

When Tek 2 came out last year I got a green /10 FPJ auto for $52, and that was not long after the set came out.

I picked up more than one MW3 auto for $1 or $2 ... too many auctions, not enough buyers, I guess.

HOW MANY MORE DONNIE YENS DOES THE WORLD NEED? I guess that is the question.

I count 7 sets he has been in exactly a year:
Rogue One Series 1, Rogue One Series 2, Galactic Files Reborn, Journey to the Last Jedi, Masterwork 2017, Stellar, High Tek. Before Last Jedi dropped, he had been in every set that Topps released the entire year (excluding online exclusive sets)

Yet heís still over $75, so that says something.

Iím happy they get him to sign as much as he does. Itís cool to pull a main character and easy enough to get one at a good price. I wish more signers were like him and Whitaker.

Iím hoping Christie starts signing more now.

Default First Buzz: 2017 Topps Star Wars High Tek trading cards

Man, why are sellers dumping this product off so low and fast?

The odd part is the Tarkin and Tivik autos going for so high, unless I donít know something else those actors have done to generate the hype.



Looks like the only big sellers are either a top name autos, signers and the inserts. Base and print proofs are dirt cheap this year based on completed sales.

Unfortunately, since his debut, Topps has dumped Prinze autos into every set, so he's no longer rare. SMG is still uncommon, but the arc of her auto value is following Prinze closely IMO. Plus she has that silly vampire thing she did to get some fans.

So a seller on eBay has form 1, 2, and 3 lots for $1-$3 a card, printing proofs under $50ea for main characters.

Only thing I donít see is autos, so maybe they hit it big and are dumping the rest?

I had a case of this ordered, but the ebay seller pr14 looks to be scamming buyers, trying to sell items he doesn't have and now closed up shop and ran.
I will get my money back, so I guess I am glad to avoid this product, because it is obvious people don't want 3 steaight year of this product, because it barely changes year to year.

Dammit, I was hoping he'd deliver on a case of Last Jedi series 1. Oh well, it will free up funds for the next set...
