With a suggested price tag of $10,000, Boba Fett probably could have collected his bounty on Han Solo with a box of 2017 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures.
The product, which was first revealed at the 2017 National Sports Collectors Convention, takes high-end to the extreme corners of the galaxy, especially for a license that has never topped out at higher than $300 per box at its time of release.
So what does $10,000 get a hardcore Star Wars collector?
Every 2017 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures box has 40 autographs. The focus is on big names from the franchise, which should be expected with such an extreme price tag.
The list of signers includes Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, Hayden Christensen, Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker and Billy Dee Williams. There are also some autographs from actors that are relatively new to Topps. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alan Tudyk and Tim Curry fall under this category.
Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, is also part of the product. However, he’s one of two redemptions (along with Stephen Stanton). As a make-good of sorts, Topps added a bonus autograph of Ben Mendelsohn who played Director Krennic in Rogue One. Mendelsohn won an Emmy in 2016 for his supporting role in the Netflix series Bloodline. The Mendelsohn autographs, his first certified signed cards, will be sent with the final Hamill cards.
While virtually all of the 2017 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures autographs are signed on-card, there are a couple of exceptions. Carrie Fisher and Kenny Baker both recently passed away making hard-signed cards impossible. They’re still in the product via unused sticker autographs.
Cards are printed on thick 48 pt. card stock. They’re also individually encased.
Base autographs have 40 copies. They’re joined by several levels of parallels.
2017 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures has a production run of just 100 boxes. Each comes with an autograph from each of the set’s signers. The only big variable is which version.
