I've been looking for info as to when these cards are actually coming out, aaaaaaaaaaand Topps.com doesn't really say anything other than November 2002. I checked some print ads, nobody has any listed. Yesterday I called a dealer listed in Non-Sport Update and got nowhere.
Frankly I'm disappointed, because I hoped to be opening a box while watching the new DVD.
Anyway, an eBay search yielded the following info -- hopefully it's legit.
That's from a buy-it-now auction, the only one currently on eBay.Release Date/Ship Date is Novermber 18th, 2002...This is an auction for a factory sealed hobby box of Star Wars Attack of the Clones Widevision trading cards. Look for 1 autographed card per box on average!!
I'm not buying it there, but I am actually encouraged by the price the dealer has! $59.99 doesn't sound too bad, all things considered. That's for a Hobby box, so I'm ASSUMING it means 36 packs. Usually retail boxes are 24 and hobby boxes are 36.
Heck, if I'm right about the 36 packs then it's less than $1.70 per pack. As for the autographs, I have no idea if the guy's claim is legit - if so, then I think hobby boxes are the only way to go for me because I really doubt the retail boxes will compare in that category.
If anyone has any info regarding pack quantity, I'd be much obliged.
