Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder. – Princess Leia
Star Wars is turning 35. Topps is celebrating by issuing a new trading card release.
I’m on board as a sketchcard artist for this release. Here is a small preview of what I am contributing.
Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of A New Hope, Topps is releasing its most ambitious Star Wars card set to date! This massive 350-card collector’s set covers the characters, creatures and vehicles from all 6 films as well as the Expanded Universe and The Clone Wars. Each super-premium 24 pt. foil-stamped card is full of intriguing details and includes a set of icons that cross-reference other cards in the series that relate to it. Plus each base card has 4 sets of rare parallels: Blue (350 each), Red (35 each) and Gold (35 each). Special inserts complement this in-depth retrospective: “I Have a Bad Feeling About This,” Duels of Fate, Heroes on Both Sides, and Classic Lines. Additionally a set of 20 Foil insert cards showcase rarely seen black and white photography from the original trilogy. Each Hobby Box includes 1 Sketch Card and either 1 Autograph (Hobby Only) or 1 Embroidered Patch “relic” card (Hobby Only). 12 cards per pack, 24 packs per box.
