If you haven’t felt the awakening yet, you will by Friday.
That’s the day that Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives and that’s also the day that the galaxy right here right now gets a new set of Star Wars cards — one that includes full scenes from the film and the most-important thing of them all.
Autographs from the new faces of the franchise. (If you thought Star Wars was a force on cardboard before, you haven’t seen anything yet. Guaranteed.)
In fact, Friday’s release of 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens is merely a first series of cards. In fact, it won’t even be the only Star Wars set of the week …
After a lull in new arrivals around Black Friday, there are a whopping 13 new products set to arrive this coming week with some heavy hitters in baseball, the college ranks and even non-sports territory on the calendar.
The biggest just might be 2015 Bowman Draft, which will arrive redemption-free on Wednesday with a selection of the newest MLB draft picks in their official MLB uniforms. Autographs for 31 of the 35 first-round picks will be found in this one. For prospectors, this is perhaps the biggest day of the year … every year.
