Topps and Star Wars have been successful partners for over 40 years. The company is returning to our favorite galaxy with a new set for The Last Jedi with basic inserts, base sets, premium boxes, and retail exclusives.
Basic inserts include stickers, character cards blueprints, and illustrated cards.
The base set of card for this set has a classic blue star background. There are also parallel sets of cards that have the same images, but different color borders (green, black, silver, orange, gold, and red).
There are two types of premium boxes, the Value Box and the Hobby Box. If you purchase a Value Box, you are guaranteed one hit card. However, Hobby Boxes contain two hit cards per box and one guaranteed autograph, autograph relic, or autograph printing plate. These boxes also have premium insert cards you can’t get anywhere else. You can get a Value or Hobby Box from card shops, comic books stores, or online.
Target, Walmart, and GameStop all have card sets exclusive to their stores. Target has a 10 card Choose Your Destiny set, Walmart has a Family Legacy set, and GameStop has five Allies cards in their packs.
However, collecting doesn’t stop at the physical cards! The Star Wars Digital Card Trader (SWCT) app has some really cool Last Jedi cards, including PORGS!
I’m obsessed with these little creatures. Not only does the SWCT have some pretty cards, they also have a digital interactive card that makes Porg sounds:
The app is available for Apple and Android devices. All you need to do is download the app and set up an account. Then you can start collecting coins to purchase sets. Although there are a lot more pay-to-play features in the app than when the app first appeared, don’t get discouraged. Focus on building up your base cards. Trading is a great way to build up your collection. The trade feed can be a rough place, so make sure you read all the info posts on the site. If you would like to trade with me send a trade to @yogikai.
Mention in the trade comment that you read this post on BGN and I’ll give you some extra cards!
