Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on DVD on April 5 collectors will have to hit Walmart stores for bonus items with the DVD that can’t be found anywhere else.
There was an awakening and it’s been felt on eBay as well as the box office.
Another Mystery Redemption from 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 has sold for big bucks on eBay, going for $1,700 on Sunday. (Spoiler alert: It’s for an autograph of Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey.) Four other copies have sold for $1,200 or more on eBay since the product’s release 11 days ago, while a fifth sale came in at $900 to set the low mark.
Asking prices for the card in current auctions have gotten steeper, though.
Update (Aug. 8, 2016): After a long wait, Ridley has been confirmed as being the mystery auto by Topps.
Topps has released the checklist for 2015 Topps Star Wars The Force Awakens Series 1, and it includes a Mystery Redemption on the autograph checklist.
But there’s no mystery — it’s Daisy Ridley. (It says so right on the checklist.)
Among the signers, only Ridley and John Boyega are the only signers among the new cast. The rest are notable names from the past films who’ll apparently appear in The Force Awakens. Among them are Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew.

We’re less than two days away from the arrival of The Force Awakens and the newest Star Wars card set from Topps — and both have carry plenty of mystery.
Why? We don’t have a checklist yet because even it could contain potential spoilers.
The 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, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver, who haven’t had certified autographs before.
And that got Buzz thinking about the possibilities.
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 …
