The difference is the others are not available to buy direct from Topps, they are just randomly inserted into packs which will drive the price up whereas these are direct from Topps. The print runs of the others maybe higher but with the exception of the Shilton World Cup one how many do you actually see available at any one time ?

Also, whether this country has the market for cards at those prices remains to be seen, we're years, even decades behind the likes of the US and Asian countries in card collecting.

Not everyone is interested in Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea either. Same old players from the same old clubs.

15 various signed MA cards have been on ebay recently plus 5 more available at the moment, so not entirely exclusive.

Not selling for silly prices though (30 -50).

Has the authentics range of readily available signed limited cards hit the signed match attax card market?

Thats it though 30-50 which shows what the price is. Ebay like it or not is the place where prices are determined these days.

How many of the 15 have been different cards ?

I don't think you can compare the markets at this moment between ma and the Authentics, one is as you know aimed at young kids and has a set to complete whereas the other is aimed at 'proper' collectors for want of a better word and there isn't a set to complete. Topps need to understand its not all about the 3/4 clubs (admittedly they will sell more of those than others) and if they opened up to other fans then it could work out but prices especially to start off need to be a touch more realistic and also i've yet to see any decent marketing from them. I don't know if they have promoted in mags like Match or anything as I don't buy them.

Personally I wouldn't be interested as the players and clubs don't interest me but on a general basis then it would be more appealing to have some reasonable priced ones which could then encourage people to purchase more exclusive ones of the 'superstar' type of player which could be at higher prices with the lower print runs.

Its a market that is there in this country but needs to be allowed to grow.
