Buzz bets you didn’t see that coming.
In its eighth week of existence, the 2016 Topps #TBT set has taken an intergalactic twist. It’s no longer a baseball card set as the stars of Star Wars have taken over with a memorable past basketball card design as its framework.
There are six cards in this week’s pack (checklist below) and it will cost $19.99 for one with a discounted price of $49.99 for three over on Topps.com. There will be free shipping with Smartpost.
The design, of course, is the 1980-81 Topps basketball design that is the home of the shared Rookie Card of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson.
Here’s the rundown of this one …
SW-1 HAN SOLO / LUKE SKYWALKER / PRINCESS LEIA
SW-2 BOBA FETT / DARTH VADER / EMPEROR PALPATINE
SW-3 YODA / DARTH VADER / LUKE SKYWALKER
SW-4 CHEWBACCA / BOBA FETT / HAN SOLO
SW-5 R2-D2 / AT-AT / C-3PO
SW-6 PRINCESS LEIA / LANDO CALRISSIAN / HAN SOLO
