    SW wacky packaging cards

    http://www.beckett.com/news/2014/04/...acky-packages/

    These look interesting. Surprised Topps hasn't done this sooner.

    Interesting. I might give it a whirl; especially if I can buy packs first, instead of just the full set at once.

    By the way, OC. Do you ever wonder if you and I really are the only humans in the world collecting SW trading cards, but...?

    Sometimes I do, BC.

    There's a fellow card collector in my club. For the past few years, I've bought my basic sets of cards from him. He buys several cases of them to get the sketch cards, autos, etc... He's gotten fed up with Topps and all the variations of cards for the price they're asking, and has taken a break. I still haven't gotten a complete set of the last series. Might have to go to a dealer for it, unless I can find an unopened box cheap.

    I will buy these, Steve will buy these I suspect as well. I'm really digging the humor in the samples in the link.

    Since they show a September release date, I wonder if there will be exclusive freebies at Cons this summer? Comic-Cons that I shan't be attending, that is.

    Does that mean there'll be a Threepio-with-eye-out wacky card?

    Craaaap, I forgot to stop at the Topps booth, or find out if there was a Topps booth.

    Reality TV (ten cards, 1:2 packs) puts a Star Wars spin on ten shows we're familiar with. For Star Tours fans, there are ten Travel Posters (1:4 packs) that tackle top tourist destinations in the Star Wars Universe. Coloring Cards (1:6 packs) offer line art from ten base cards that collectors can color as they see fit. Fold-Out Comic Book Ads (1:12 packs) take a retro-styled approach to create over-sized inserts.

    Four Bonus Stickers can be found exclusively in hobby boxes.

    As far as hits go, collectors can find randomly inserted sketch cards and Artist Autographs. Unlike past sets that have used stickers, autographs are signed on-card.

    Estimated Release Date: 9/17/14
    Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, 10 cards per pack
    Price Point: Low-End Entertainment Card
    Target Audience: Star Wars Fans, Wacky Packages Collectors, Set Builders, Collectors with a Sense of Humor

    Thanks for the update. That 10 cards per pack seems like a misprint, but it tracks. I found a preorder online for a box at $56, if that's the price then I foresee this being on my xmas list if I don't outright buy it next month.
