Default Topps announces Star Wars printing plate set

Topps announces Star Wars printing plate set

October 14, 2012 at 5:15 PM



By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

NEW YORK CITY | Stars Wars Galactic Files recently made its release as the most comprehensive Star Wars trading card sets out there.

But the Topps isnít done with the line.

Topps is producing Stars Wars Galactic Files Deluxe Print Plate Box Set, it announced at New York Comic Con this weekend. Topps took pre-orders for the $499 box at the New York City convention.

There will be just 350 boxes produced of Star Wars Galactic Files Deluxe Print Plate Box Set, and will begin to ship in November. These cards are only available at ShopTopps.com

The new set will feature exclusive cards separate from the initial release. In addition, each box will contain one set of four printing plates for one for a card in the product.

Doesn't this seem like something that should have been in the boxes to begin with instead of being produced at that high of a price point? Or would people prefer to have all four plates? I would be upset if I paid that much money only to get some random plate set of a scene or character I didn't like.

I agree, it seems like a cash grab to release them in a set of their own. And the printing plates are the only hits? I don't like printing plates and $500 seems expensive for 4 plates.

Not a fan of printing plates, when I get them love to sell them....this stuff should of been included in Galactic Files, especially for the price point they were asking......

It was nice getting them in the Avengers set, I got one or two in a few boxes that I bought. I also got one of those redemption cards in the last Harry Potter set for a set of all four plates in a fairly nice box with the final card. It was cool to see them all together in one set. But would I have paid $500 for it? No way. I can't believe they are doing this, and like was said before, they will sell out for sure due to rabid Star Wars fans.

Im not a fan of plates. But they really made an effort to make a unique product. The 4 Vaders look bad #@#@#@ next to each other. Plus it comes with 24 exclusive cards that were not released in the set. If i was a star wars fan, id buy a few sets in hopes of hitting a cool character.
