Short printed base cards in Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 2 provide a challenge for set collectors

Star Wars fans looking to collect the entire set of Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 2 base cards will have to undertake the challenge of finding the set’s final two cards. Cards no. 101 and 102, which depict the movie’s final scene, were short printed by Topps, making them scarcer than the set’s other 100 cards.

A post on Topps’s blog site recently talked to about the reason why the last two cards were short printed:

“Topps was adamant about completing the story for collectors. We wanted to make sure these final two shots from the film – Rey finding Luke and returning the lightsaber – were captured in the set,” said Star Wars brand manager Mark Von Ohlen. “Because these assets couldn’t be released until very late in the process, we decided to add them as extra cards – numbered 101 and 102 to complete the story and give fans something to chase.”

On top of the base set, which retells the plot of The Force Awakens, Series 2 also features relic, sketch and autograph cards. The autograph checklist includes John Boyega, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew.
