2020 Topps Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Series 2 Wraps the Saga

Share:

The end. 2020 Topps Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Series 2 doesn’t mean the conclusion of a 40-plus year run for trading cards. However, the set does close out the story of what’s being dubbed as the final Skywalker film.

And it’s the story that’s a major focal point for this release. With Series 1 releasing alongside the movie, it doesn’t have all the plot points and story details. Series 2 covers it all.

Hobby boxes come with an autograph plus a second hit that could be a second signature, sketch card, memorabilia card or medallion.

2020 Topps Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Series 2 Base Set Basics

The base set has 100 cards, recreating The Rise of Skywalker for the medium of trading cards. It’s the full story, with full spoilers and key action points and revelations.

Parallels, which land at least one per hobby pack, come in several colors: Blue, Purple (1:4 packs), Red (/199), Bronze (/50), Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Printing Plates (1/1) and Black (1/1).

Autographs and Inserts

Autographs come from the film’s actors.

Parallels include Red (/99), Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Printing Plates (1/1) and Black (1/1).

Multi-signature cards are available with two, three and six signers.

As for memorabilia, costume relics return. In previous sets, these have usually used material from the production versus screen-worn swatches. Parallels include Silver (/25), Gold (/10) and Black (1/1).

Millenium Falcon Relic Cards do have screen-used prop pieces. Silver (/15), Gold (/4) and Black (1/1) are the parallels here.

Medallion cards take on a vehicle theme, spotlighting some of the movie’s machines. Besides base versions, these cards have Silver (/50), Gold (/25) and Black (1/1) parallels. Select cards also have autographs.

As always, sketch cards feature original artwork done on the card itself. In addition to traditional sketch cards, there are also Shaped versions.

Rise of Skywalker Series 2 has six additional regular insert sets. Heroes of the Resistance, The Knights of Ren, and Villains of the First Order are all about characters. Weapons showcases guns and other tech from the film.

All four of these have Red (/99), Bronze (/50), Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Printing Plate (1/1) and Black (1/1) parallels. Select Resistance and First Order cards also have autograph versions.

A nine-card Foil Puzzle creates a large character collage.

Finally, five more cards in the Kylo Ren Continuity set join the checklist. The first five are in Journey to the Rise of Skywalker. Cards from the second installment can be found in Series 1.

    Great article on the up-coming Skywalker movie, Ryan.

    Now, how about a 2019-2020 Upper Deck Parkhurst Hockey checklist…

    I just opened THREE 2019-2020 boxes… and …no checklist posted yet.

      @David – We post things when we get them. I just found out about Parkhurst last night myself when I spotted some on the shelf. A list has been requested.
