2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution Trading Cards Chart Growth, Loss and Autographs — Checklist Added

2017-Topps-Walking-Dead-Evolution-header

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Life comes at you fast when you’re in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Save for a handful of people, you can’t really plan ahead for one. So when it happens, things change. You change. That’s the focus of 2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution, a character-driven release that centers on how people have grown over seven seasons.

And, no, that doesn’t include an insert set dedicated to how Carl’s hair has grown over the years.

Each hobby box includes two hits, one of which is guaranteed to be an autograph.

Base Set

The 2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution base set is comprised of 100 cards. The theme is change. And the characters have been through a lot of them since the show premiered.

2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution Base

Color-based parallels come in five levels starting with Brown, which are one per pack. Other include Black (/50), Green (/25), Black and White (/10), and Blood Red (1/1). Base cards also have one-of-one Printing Plates.

This isn’t the first time that the Evolution theme has been used for a Topps entertainment product. Since 2001, there have been three separate Star Wars sets under the banner. The most recent came out in 2016.

Autographs and Premium Inserts

Autograph signers cover actors from seven seasons worth of The Walking Dead. Parallels come in the same levels as base cards: Brown (/99), Black (/50), Green (/25), Black and White (/10), Printing Plates (1/1), and Blood Red (1/1).

2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution Autograph Black and White

Dual and Triple Autographs are also randomly inserted, both with Blood (1/1) versions in addition to the regular cards.

2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution Triple Autograph

Costume Relics include swatches from wardrobe pieces used in the show’s filming. These have the same parallels as Autographs, except there are no Printing Plates.

2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution Relic

Dual, Triple and Autographed Relics are all numbered to just 10 plus one-of-one Blood parallels.

Sketch cards focus on characters and are not limited to any particular season. Rather the entire series, thus far, is in play.

Inserts

Rounding out 2017 Topps Walking Dead Evolution are four regular insert sets: No Safe Haven, Adversaries, Weapons and Walkers.

The have parallels much like base cards. The only difference is that the Brown cards are numbered to 99 copies instead of being one per pack.

    Omg so freakin awesome! I LOVE that this set is all 7 seasons finished so far. Obviously no season 8 yet but that’s ok. Although I wish Cryptozic still had the license to make/sell these cards vs Topps. I think Topps is being money hungry by making cards with “different color” backgrounds. That’s dumb. The odds are horrendous! Omg come on triple autograph “red” 1 outta 27,904 packs?! Come on now that’s a bit ridiculous. I love collecting these cards and have s6 n s7 complete base set as well as many autographs, costume relics and several numbered inserts. A MUST for any die hard TWD fan! Matter a fact today I was in my local comic book store and saw these new packs so bought two packs ($4.99 a pack) but so worth it. I actually got a numbered autograph card of father Gabriel. And a Morgan weapon insert card so was pretty stoked!

    After close inspection of the cards and inserts I noticed that of the base Non Numbered 99 card set there are 2 different sets which have brown or red ‘Evolution’ printed on the front. Sequentially numbered cards are all numbered in red foil on the back with ‘Evolution’ in Black, Green, or other colors as stated. Note all packs so far are Wal-Mart purchased.
