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.

This mid year release is pretty standard from Topps. Once again, the base set is 350 cards, up from 330 in most recent years. The box has the same basic configuration as series one. There are ten packs of fifty cards each. Each box also advertises one autograph and two relic cards. Some of these relics are manufactured, but they seem to be very well done. This set marks the first regular series release for the much anticipated Kris Bryant.
This box contained:

This release commemorates much of the first season for Disney XD’s hit Star Wars Rebels. It’s a pretty basic set features images from the series. There are 100 base cards with a rainbow foil parallel. The only inserts on the checklist are Stickers and Tattoos. There are also a rare number of Sketch Cards, which have not been listed. It’s not really a release based on hits, so there are no autographs included.
This break was a blaster box containing six pack, with six cards each, one of which is an insert.

Following in the pattern of recent years, the 2015 wwe release once again follows the style of the regular baseball release for the year. It gives the set a more main stream feel, rather than just being relegated to the non-sport category.
This was originally advertised with two hits per box, but the box itself does not mention how many. Each box contains 24 packs of 7 cards, but some hits are thicker, so there may be fewer cards. Autographs seem to fall roughly one in every two boxes, while the remaining hits consist of shirt, mat, sign and athletic tape relics, along with Diva Kiss Cards.
