The Basics: The set plays off of an early gum-focused release for the film with each set including as many as five parallels along with two autos for $99.99. Among the top signers here are Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels.

Parallels include Blue (/75), Green (/40), Gold (/10) and 1/1 Red cards, which are cardboard versions of wrappers for a product from back in 1978 where the gum inside was sugar-free. It was something George Lucas reportedly requested that Topps try since he is a diabetic.

Topps also is selling uncut proof sheets of the original release for $800 on its website.
