Less than two days away from the arrival of The Force Awakens and the newest Star Wars card sets, Topps solved one of the mysteries about its forthcoming releases.
John Boyega, who plays Finn in The Force Awakens, will appear on the autograph checklists for both 2015 Topps Star Wars High Tek and 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1.
“We are very excited to have John Boyega join the Topps family,” said brand manager Mark Von Ohlen. “He’s such an important part of the movie and having him in the product was pivotal for us. We know all the fans out are going to love opening packs of cards knowing they can potentially find a John Boyega autograph.”
A full checklist for 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 is coming as early as tomorrow, and it’s likely to include the first autographs of the new generation of Star Wars stars — the likes of Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver, who haven’t had certified autographs before like Boyega.
No other new signers for The Force Awakens Series 1 have been announced, while 2015 Topps High Tek will have more than 50 signers.
