2020 Topps Women of Star Wars Hobby Box

2020 Topps Women of Star Wars:  I liked the concept of this set so I jumped on a hobby box which is pretty affordable.  I pulled the guaranteed auto and also two numbered cards (#/25 and #/99).  This Shaak Ti is probably my favorite card.  I like the blue and that photo.  Darker than most which makes it stand out.
   My auto is from The Clone Wars animated series.  I'm a big fan of series so this is a nice pull.  Leia was in some of the later season's episodes if I remember right.  Not sure yet what I'll do with the card.  It may end up on eBay to bolster my hobby funds.  We'll see.
The base cards have movie promo photos or screen shots as well as game and animated screen grabs.  The base design is pretty simple but I like it.  A bit more color could have made it nicer like the parallels.
It's fun seeing the animated shows getting some love.  I didn't share a copy of the backs.  They do have a nice write-up.  Nothing to wow you but interesting enough to be pertinent.
A Weapon of Choice insert, purple parallel #/24 and an orange parallel.  Again just that small addition of color makes these look a bit more appealing in my opinion.
A powerful pairs insert. I always liked Liminara Unduli and Barriss Offee whether it be their appearances in the legacy Star Wars books or The Clone Wars.  That's a green parallel #/99.  Rogue One is one of my favorite Star Wars movies of all-time.
Two of the iconic ladies of the Star Wars universe though I know Padme' doesn't get near as much love due to the majority feeling the prequels were a big letdown.  That is a The Journey of Leia Organa insert.  
This was definitely a fun box and I'm really glad I picked it up.  I definitely like the set.  There are some huge autos to be had in these boxes but obviously the odds for hitting those are long.  Doesn't mean there aren't other good ones.  I think mine was a decent one given Leia and The Clone Wars are pretty popular.
