First Look: 2015 Topps Star Wars Chrome Perspectives: Jedi vs. Sith
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
The next Star Wars release of 2015 arrives in August — and it’s a collection of everything Star Wars so far.
It’s 2015 Star Wars Chrome Perspectives: Jedi vs. Sith — a follow-up to the 2014 release that explored the Star Wars canon via Chrome that arrives on Aug. 5
Carrying a $3.99 per pack suggested retail price. this one will include 24 packs per hobby box — one designed for Jedi and another designed for Sith — but with two hits inside all of them. There will be one Chrome medallion and a second hit from an array of autographs, printing plates and sketch cards.
The base set will consist of 100 cards from all areas of the Star Wars saga — half of the set for Jedi, half for Sith. Each will have a standard Refractor found one per pack, a Prism Refractor (/199), an X-Fractor (/99), a Gold Refractor (/50) and a 1/1 Superfractor. Each will also have printing plates.
There will be five 10-card inserts to chase, each with varying levels of scarcity. Sith Fugitives will be found 12 per box, whole Jedi Hunt will be six per box, Sith Propaganda will be three per box, Jedi Information Guide will be two per box and Jedi Training will be one per box. The Chrome Medallion cards will have Gold, Silver and Bronze parallels. The Bronze will be the most-plentiful of the medallions at 250 made, while Silver will be limited to 100 and Gold will be limited to 25.
While sketch card fans will have a total of 8,000 Chrome cards to chase in the release, the autographs are the biggest draw with each having an on-card sig limited to only 99 copies. They also will have Gold (/10), X-Fractor (/50) and 1/1 Superfractor parallels to chase. New this year will be double autos (/3), while two triple-auto cards (/5) will also be a chase. Each auto card also will have printing plates.
A preliminary checklist was not released.
