This isn’t really a normal break, and I went back and forth on whether to include it. Rather than individual packs, this box contains one large clear pack. The box advertises 32 card complete set, but that isn’t quite correct, either.
There are no real hits available with this set, but there are numerous parallels possible. I guess that would be closest to a hit, if you were to find a limited version. There’s not much here, but if you’re a fan of “Baby Yoda”, here’s your chance to get a set dedicated to him!
We’re reaching back in time a bit today, to take a look at the beginning of Topps Heritage. It’s turned in to a fan favorite over the years, but in the beginning, was anyone really sure what to expect? This release used the same design as the 1952 Topps release.
In a way, it was a simpler time, before new releases of the hot rookie selling for $30k. While hits existed, it was before the time where hits really drove the product. Many of the now regular inserts were around for this first release, but they were not nearly as plentiful as today. These packs advertise autographs with odds of 1:142 and even Clubhouse Collection Relics at 1:592 packs. This is not the box to chase after hits.
Topps joins in the Star Wars fun this fall with its own Journey to The Force Awakens card release. The base set is printed on Heritage stock and resembles the original Star Wars release design from the 1970s. The set features all six current movies, with a special focus on the upcoming release. There are also plenty of parallels and inserts to keep you occupied.
The retail box contains 24 packs of six cards each. The base set is only 110 cards, but it’s going to take a while, as each back of six cards only features two regular base cards. Also included in this box were six promo cards for the Star Wars trading card app from Topps. Each card had a code redeemable for one 15 card Boba Fett Pack, so the box also included a total of 90 virtual trading cards, as well.
