Arrived has it...
Today is the unofficial National Star Wars Day, May 4. In honor of this day I offer a trilogy of Star Wars relics that I have picked up over the past few months, all from Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
The first two cards are from the 2013 Topps Jedi Legacy release. The relics are an Ewok’s fur and part of Jabba’s Sail Barge sail.
There are three different relics in the release, the third being Chewbacca’s fur but those are still well outside of my comfort range in price. Each of the three relics have multiple character versions with some selling for more than other, for example the Slave Leia Jabba Sail card sells for more than the rest just like the Wicket Ewok Fur sells for more than the other Ewoks and so on.
The third relic is from this year’s very cool 2015 Topps Star Wars Masterwork release, a Scout Trooper Shield Bunker Panel. Like the other relics there are multiple characters and two different sections of the structure are used; Inner Panel and Frame. The main character cards run higher in price and I have seen a couple of cards with screw holes that sold at a premium.
