2017 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures Checklist and Full Details for the $10,000 Set

Share:

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.

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.

2017 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures Harrison Ford Autograph

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.

    Interesting, but I think for $10K they would at least manage to get a Harrison Ford in there and possibly a George Lucas.

    It’s going to be interesting to see how the individual cards do on the secondary market.

      @Richard — Definitely some big names not in. But list isn’t complete. I suspect we shall see some more biggies before it’s out.

    I totally agree with the comments above… Any true fan would be happy to pay, but Seriously BIG names are missing… Dang near the top actors but Carrie Fisher… I just think a Harrison Ford, A George Lucas, Mark Hamill, C3PO etc… I’d love to have a set, but I think they should of put the top 50 of All movies… I’d buy it anyway…

    Well, the Ford certainly adds “value”, but the odds of someone breaking even on a break up is still zero.
    George Lucas would have helped a lot here, and they still could have done much, much more at relatively little cost to themselves.

    Carrie Fisher’s auto is still available on card for under $500. The Ford will break $1000.
    Hamill will likely be $300+
    I don’t see enough info to really know the newest signers market that well, but I’m guessing most will be well below the average cost of getting at $250 per.

    The Ford 1/1 autos might come close to paying for a set by themselves though.

    There are several key people still alive and willing to sign. Signatures for Chewbacca and C3PO would help. They easily could have got a number of “cheap” signers that would at least allow some recovery.
    A cut auto of Sir Alec Guinness would have been pricey to make, but would instantly make the set a hit.

    That said, I’ve been wrong before and people might very well pay a premium on the cards since most of the sets are likely getting purchased by people intending to keep them.

    I certainly was not expecting to see Sarah Michelle Gellar autograph! Does the Seventh Sister fight with a wooden stake?
