I think this is a great move by Topps UK. It's been too long since there has been something worthwhile for collectors. Futera Unique are a great release but they are extremely high end, and their price reflects this. And I would rather collect a designated 'Premier League' release as opposed to the International teams with Futera.

The price is fair in my opinion. An Owen, Giggs, Rio numbered as low as some of them are is good value I believe. Don't understand the price ranges though, with a signed Giggs numbered to /105 the same price as a signed Giggs numbered to /607. Doesn't make sense, I mean which would you prefer to buy?

The cards look great. Can understand a lot of teams aren't represented, this is something Topps would need to look at to sell more of them in the UK. My only two real issues with this release are:

No promotion. Not sure how long any information has been available or how long the cards have been released for, but I only found out about them through the FCF competition email I received last night. Whereas there are a fair few collectors here in Australia and once word gets around there will be some interest, the Asian market would certainly snap these up very quickly at the price they are at I believe. If any Topps UK reps do read this, I would encourage them to further promote on other countries trading card forums.

My other issue, and I haven't contacted Topps UK regarding if there is any leeway in this, is the cost of international postage. The only postage option I had to choose from here in Australia was 'Worldwide Delivery' at 34 pounds. I can understand if something somewhat larger than a trading card was to be sent registered outside of the UK may fetch a higher price. But I have purchased one or two cards from the UK that have cost me upwards of 100 pounds :idiot (hey not many) and the most for registered postage was 13 pounds. It just doesn't cost that much to post a trading card...

Otherwise, hopefully this is just the beginning from Topps UK. Would like to see some box/pack releases in the future. With maybe one 'squad player' autograph card per box and a couple of jersey cards per box, with one or more 'superstar' autograph cards per case... but in my opinion this is a great start.
