Jedi Legacy cards
Came across this on another site.
It's hard to believe that in the dozens of Star Wars-themed sets released since 1977, none have had relics or costume cards. Until now. 2013 Topps Star Wars Jedi Legacy is highlighted by a trio of relic cards that are the franchise's first movie memorabilia cards inserted in packs. The set focuses on the sweeping stories and mythologies surrounding Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. A hobby-exclusive product, boxes promise a Film Cel card (another first for the franchise) and a second hit.
2013 Topps Star Wars Jedi Legacy is a 90-card set that has been divided into two distinct sections. Anakin and Darth Vader get 45 "A" cards while Luke Skywalker has 45 "B" cards. The idea is that their stories are separate but, ultimately, connected. Parallels combine to fall at least one per pack. Blue Light Saber cards are the most common, falling one per pack. Other Light Saber-themed parallels include Magenta (1:6 packs), Green (1:24 packs) and Gold (10 per card). Printing Plates are considered a box hit, falling 1:30 boxes.
The set has three different relics. Ewok fur is the most common, falling 1:5 boxes. There is also Jabba's Sail Barge (1:14 boxes) and Chewbacca's hair (1:30 boxes). The Ewok card has swatches from Wicket, Logray, Teebo and others. The Chewbacca hair is from the original trilogy.
Film Cel cards have a big checklist and tiered structure to encourage set collecting. Thirty Single Film Cel cards are one per box and have original frames from Episode IV, V and VI. Five Double Film Cel cards and ten Triple Film Cel cards each fall 1:6 boxes. These focus on frames that have Luke or Darth Vader.
2013 Topps Star Wars Jedi Legacy has 20 different autographs from actors in all six films. One autograph is in every third box. Confirmed signers include Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia). Estimated Release Date: 5/22/13
At least I have enough sleeves left over from the Galactic Files set to hold these new ones.
Dang, that sounds pretty good. I haven't been into card collecting in a very long time, but that might just about do it for me. I'll keep my eye open for these. Thanks, Hasbro, for making sure I had nothing normal to buy from SW or Transformers for the next 7 months. :rolleyes:
They're gonna be $4 a pack. A hobby box is $96. Ouch!
Indeed! I get why they're going that high, but at the same time, I simply can't justify that pricetag for my collection.
