Topps - US - Star Wars 30th Anniversary (2007)


With the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, the Topps company put many card collectors through a brief scare by announcing the sale of the publicly held company to private investors. Though rumored for many months, this made many collectors doubt that a 30th anniversary set for Star Wars would actually be released. Fortunately, the set had been in planning for a long time, and the promotional card for the set was released shortly after the company's sale announcement.

The Topps 30th Anniversary set promises to use only images that have not appeared in earlier Topps card sets. A total of 120 cards will comprise the base set, with a variety of chase cards available. Chase cards will include Autograph cards (hobby edition only), Sketch cards (hobby edition only), red foil-stamped parallel cards, sequentially-numbered gold foil-stamped parallel cards, and die-cut triptych puzzle cards. The common cards will be printed on heavy card stock and feature metallic ink and foil stamping as well.

Of course, with a 30th anniversary set, the true test of the set for collectors may well be the quality of the image selection, and the quality of the text featured on the backs of the cards. These cards need to inspire nostalgia for a generation that grew up with Star Wars, while also inspiring newer collectors and fans.
