Hello Star Wars Fans Everywhere!!!
Boy’s and girls, do I have a treat for you today, Topps has come out with yet another very awesome set! The Star Wars 2017 Masterwork , I will be sharing the full checklist for this wickedly cool set, along with showing off some of the artist sketch cards, that these very wonderful Topps artists have spent so much time on for all of us collectors!
I truly hope your shoes are tied tight, because this set will definitely be one that blows your socks off! Topps themed this set as R2-D2, the box I believe and the packs at R2’d out which is so cool. R2-D2 is one of my favorite characters, so after seeing the packs and then what cards are going to look like too, with the possible hits that are available too, I am very, very excited for this set!
Okay, lets breakdown this set, shall we? The base set consists of 100 cards, 25 of them are called “short print” cards, so the other 75 will probably be more common than the 25 short print cards. The short print cards are as follows:
76 Obi-Wan Kenobi, 77 Yoda, 78 Grand Admiral Thrawn, 79 Agent Kallus, 80 Ahsoka Tano, 81 Grand Moff Tarkin, 82 Darth Vader, 83 Moroff, 84 Jan Dodonna, 85 Death Star Trooper, 86 Imperial Tank Commander, 87 Private Calfor, 88 Zuckuss, 89 4-Lom, 90 Dengar, 91 Chief Chirpa, 92 Wampa, 93 Rancor, 94 Imperial Royal Guard, 95 General Rieekan, 96 Han Solo, 97 General Leia Organa, 98 Luke Skywalker, 99 Admiral Ackbar, 100 Nien Nunb
Insert & Relic cards consist of Adventures of R2-D2, this set consists of ten cards, Evolution of the Rebel Alliance, which also consists of ten cards, Hall of Heroes, which also consists of ten cards, Animation Cells, there are only four variants of these, Source Material Fabric Swatch Cards, there are 8 different variants of these cards.
Film strips and medallion cards: There are 40 different film strip cards to complete the set for the 2017 Masterwork set, 30 different medallion cards, and 10 different Autographed Droid Medallion cards too!
This set will have about 30-40 different signers along with different style (vertical and horizontal) autographed cards. Lets not forget about the Dual, Triple, and Quad Autograph cards too. Here’s where its about to get very interesting, the 2017 Masterwork set will contain “Alongside R2-D2” Dual, Triple, and a Quad Autograph cards! These autograph cards will have the late Kenny Baker on all of them, plus the possibility of one to three additional autographs too!
This is where your socks are going to fly off! This is THE first set to have anything remotely close to this, are you ready? There will be a 20 Accordion Autograph Book, WHAT?!?! Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Felicity Jones, Forest Whittaker, Ian McDiarmid, Hayden Christensen, Ray Park, Matthew Wood, Jeremy Bulloch, Clive Revill, Dave Barclay, Erik Bauersfield, Andy Serkis, and Adam Driver are the twenty signers for this MEGA AUTOGRAPHED ACCORDION CARD!
If you think I’m done, you’re wrong! There will also be Autographed Relic cards by a lot of different signers, and lets not forget the amazing SKETCH CARDS! Below are pictures of sketch cards that artists have allowed me to use, to show all of you, along with the artists name. The level of talent is unreal to say the least. I would love to thank each and every artist that did provide pictures of your absolutely stunning work!
Well, I have yet to pull the “holy Grail” card, but out of four hobby boxes I purchased so far, I have some pretty amazing hits! I was lucky enough to get a dual auto! Hayden Christensen and Matthew Wood, Anakin Skywalker and General Grevious, numbered 2/10. I couldn’t believe it myself!
It is my greatest pleasure to present to you, just some of the amazing talent that went into this set! I am completely blown away by what I have seen so far, the level of talent gets higher and higher with every set these amazingly talented individuals participate in. So, without further a do, I present to you the artists and their work for the 2017 Topps Masterwork set!
