2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Star Wars Checklist and Details
2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Star Wars gives a new look to a familiar friend. The set recreates the first two series from the original 1977 Topps Star Wars release, this time using the modern blue sapphire pattern the Topps Chrome spinoff is known for.
The Sapphire set has 132 total cards. They line up with the Series 1 (blue starfield) and Series 2 (red) sets from the original. While there have been recreations of some cards over the years, this is the first time an entire run from the set has been done. The closest comparison would be 1999 Topps Star Wars Chrome Archives. That set took select cards from all of the original trilogy’s sets, though, and not a full run.
Cards aren’t exactly the same. For starters, the red borders of Series 2 have been dropped to make it a consistent blue. On some cards, photos have also been tweaked or even changed.
Each 2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Star Wars box includes a pair of parallels. These simply change up the color and print runs. Levels are similar to other Topps Chrome Sapphire but not exactly. Padparadscha, usually the one-of-one chase, is not in this set. It has been replaced by Onyx.
The full parallel lineup includes:
- Aqua – /99
- Peridot – /75
- Green – /50
- Orange – /25
- Gold – /15
- Purple – /10
- Red – /5
- Onyx – 1/1
Topps’ 582 Montgomery Club members got first crack at boxes with a pre-sale beginning on June 23. Each member could buy one box at $199.99. A public on-sale date followed the next day. It was essentially an instant sell out.
