I picked up a box of 16 cards from Target, after passing on a 16-card pack at TRU (which was $2 more). These look really nice, and are an apparently-wide ranging span of the SW history. It's 200 cards, with the annoying "[color] parallel" ones. I haven't noticed if there are insert sets, just special autograph cards and stamped cards from the 1970s SW series. I might attempt the pack-at-a-time collection of this, as online sets will be more since it's about double the size a typical one.

I bought a 10-pack & medallion card box from Target; I am now exactly 100 cards from a full set. Might go pack-by-pack for this one. It's nice and covers a wide range of areas of the Star Wars universe. I did get a stamped 1970s yellow border card.

I will be on the lookout for these cards.
TRU had a plastic wrapper 16-card pack (for $6.99, IIRC), while Target has that same pack for $2 less, plus 6-card packs at $1.99, a box of 10 packs and a single-wrapped medallion/other? one, and their box 16-carder also at $4.99. I found none in the toys aisle, only the cards one (and actually, only at one of the local Targets, too). The card backs are nice (if you don't know SW, it's a good intro.; but if you're a veteran fan, it's chock full o' nostalgia).

In cards 40th ANNIV. Thread: Based on buying packs and some online buys, I am now just 20 cards from a complete set (need #18, 28, 36, 44, 56, 71, 85, 102, 106, 111, 113, 116, 125, 135, 136, 157, 163, 169, 175, & 185), with quite a few extras. It's a very nice series, with excellent card back info. I have also noticed NO ERRORS in the text, a frequent flub in past sets recently.

[edit] Now, I have all but #s 71 and 136 (but that might change halfway soon).
