2006 Topps Star Wars Evolution Update Trading Cards

With the prequel trilogy wrapped, 2006 Topps Star Wars Evolution Update trading cards add to the character roster that was showcased in the debut Evolution set five years earlier. While the first release was groundbreaking, this one was a step back in a couple of major regards.

The 90-card base set continues with the theme of highlighting characters and the changes they made over the course of six films. New characters are added, some major ones are revisited and a handful of vehicles are added for good measure.

The design remains largely the same as 2001 Topps Star Wars Evolution with fronts getting the dual-photo treatment. They're also printed on foil.

Evolution A and Evolution B are inserts that keep the basic look of the base set but explore even deeper changes of some characters. Luke and Leia were featured on Evolution C inserts. These were numbered to 100 copies each and are extremely tough to find today.

Autographs are where the set's problems come into play. While not the strongest checklist of signers, it's not horrible. It's the first (and, so far, only) set to include Hayden Christensen who played Anakin in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Other notables include James Earl Jones (Darth Vader) and several people who played Jabba the Hutt. The Jabba the Hutt autographs have a stated print run of 250 copies each.

The first knock against the autographs is the fact that they use stickers. And they're not the elegant kind either. The autograph stickers are the bright foil kind that stands out, and not usually in a good way. But this was a common practice at Topps at the time.

The bigger issue is in the quality control. A huge number of autographs have a noticeable nick in the foil at the bottom of the card. Usually, Topps will accept replacements for cards like these. However, because it was so widespread they didn't for 2006 Topps Star Wars Evolution Update. Instead, they made an exclusive Evolution D card for those who requested one.

This is one of the only Star Wars sets to include Cut Signatures. Alec Guiness, Peter Cushing and George Lucas are each featured on their own one-of-one.

2006 Topps Star Wars Evolution Update has two other inserts. Six Etched Foil cards go together to form a small puzzle. Ten Galaxy Crystals cards are exclusive to retail packs.
