Topps Star Wars 40th Blaster
This was a really fun set that Topps released back in 2017 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise. I wish I'd actually grabbed another blaster or two of this back in the day, as it's an entertaining set, and the cards aren't available very cheaply on the secondary market these days.
I'm not going to show every single card from the blaster, but instead just scanned some of the more interesting highlights as I went. Let's get to it!
I'm not too proud to admit that as a grown adult I own both films in my Amazon Video library. Possibly my favorite card in the entire blaster right here based on pure nostalgia alone.
ripped some of this back around its release date I learned about the Star Wars radio broadcasts, and this time around I pulled the green parallel of that same card. In the two years that have passed since that first hanger pack of this product and today's post, I purchased all three broadcasts on Audible, and have listened to each of them.
So, that's a wrap with respect to this blaster of Topps Star Wars 40th Anniversary. A fun little set for sure. I should also note that there were buybacks included in this release, though I'm not sure it's even possible to pull one from a retail blaster like this one.
I'm certainly looking forward to the finale of the 9-episode saga later this month. I'll be catching it in the theater for sure.
I'll be back with actual sports content tomorrow, in the meantime thanks for stopping by!
