2004 Topps Star Wars Heritage Trading Cards

2004 Topps Star Wars Heritage trading cards is one of the most important releases in the franchises history. Not only is it the first set to include cards from all six of the original trilogy and prequel films, but it also has the first Star Wars sketch cards from the movies.

The base set is a sizeable 120 cards. Like other Topps Heritage products, it takes a retro approach both in design on with the cards themselves. Printed on old-school style stock, the designs are based on the original Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi sets. These films keep the same design while prequel films adopt the corresponding number. So Phantom Menace cards use the look of A New Hope, Attack of the Clones matches Empire Strikes Back and the small number of Revenge of the Sith cards line up with Return of the Jedi.

Sketch cards are the central chase element. At the time, they were novel to the franchise. 2004 Topps Star Wars Clone Wars, which is based on the original animated mini series was the only set of earlier Star Wars trading cards to include them. And those were centered on the cartoon. 2004 Topps Star Wars Heritage sketch cards cover all of the films. So not only is the style given lots of leeway, but it opens up the character options for a lot more variety.

2004 Topps Star Wars Heritage has just three autographs. They're tough pulls and they're some of the most important names from the original trilogy. Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and James Earl Jones (Darth Vader) all lent their signatures to the product. At 1:578 hobby packs, they're extremely tough pulls.

Etched Foil cards are the only other inserts available in hobby packs. There are 12 total but they're broken up into two different sets of six. 2004 Topps Star Wars Heritage had two separate release waves. The majority of the content is the same outside of these Etch Foil cards.

The only other differences with the release waves are the odds for individual autographs and the mix of artists and their sketch cards.

Retail packs don't have signed cards or sketches. However, they do have a set of Alphabet Stickers that are done to mimic those in the original Empire Strikes Back set. These have proven to be somewhat tough to find and remain popular with set builders.
