I love it, shame its cover is not a bit more durable (I have bought a fresh one for when I complete) but the concept is great, you can add extra pages and the info sheets are a nice addition.

I do get why some people hate it, especially those who play the game, but that doesnt really affect me.

Good idea, very poorly made though. Flimsy cover with the annoying flaps on the side along with the inevitability of the cards being damaged makes this album terrible.

I like it but it needs to be redesigned so that the pages are about 1cm furter away from the spine so they turn pages easier.

Really nice design but, yeah hard to assemble - but when I finally managed to assemble it, I found out it was hard to turn pages - so instead decided to make my own based on the concept Topps made :)

Bloody awful - smacks of being cheap and cheerful - my only criticism of the previous binders were the lack of expandability, which this one does solve, but overall the quality of the previous binders was much better.

Had the album been a ring binder then topps may have pulled this one off.
The inserts are colourful and glossy and I can imagine younger collectors' really liking this.
I personally think that the old album was better and hope Topps can think of a hyrid binder
that takes in the benefits of the old album plus the new one.

Same as NeilB here. I'm not too fussed about the whole DIY thing, it's just a pity the cover can be bent, creased, etc. very easily. It would be way better if the material was quality, or at least more resistant.

Not as good as last year. Can't turn the pages without damaging the cards.
As some others have stated, would have been better as a ring binder (preferably 3 or 4 ring binder).
Overall prefer the previous year's binder.

I think it's good.It would be better if you could buy extra sheets from topps.also it would be nice if the extra cards are mention to go in the same binder and when extra comes out they just sell within the binder:
Cards
New checklist sheets
New card sheets
And they are suppose to go in the normal binder

The binder is awful.... if you were to spill a drink on it it would become a soggy pulp,if you fill it with cards then when you turn the pages the cards nearest the spine will get bent as you go further through the binder..... but the new stats sheets are great..... a ready made binder like previous years but with the stats sheets fixed in in the right place would be great.

I hope this thread will be shown to Topps Tollyman and then something might actually get done about it.

Have to agree with GT, being the clumsy person I am It is more than likely I will spill a drink on this binder, which is why i never can have my binder to look through when im having a drink, last year I could as it had a plastic cover!

the concept is great as the binder is never ending, so you can just add teams and carsd ie you just add more inserts for your card colelction

The main issue is the inserts pages with the 9 card holders either side are made from very thin plastic which is very flimsy go back 5-10 years when you could buy more durable card inserts, which would cost more per page than the ones topps gets made/done for this years binder.

You can see this when you compare the binders from shoot out / panini and then topps. In order to cut costs the binders become lighter and more flimsy which results in the cards getting damaged. It may be a good idea that topps launch a better quality binder that can only be bought from they website and a call it a limited edition collectors binder!!!! etc.

Some good feedback for topps to chew over, ps used one of these new binders to put a spare set of cards in what a nightmare they cards just fall out. Gone back to the good old fashioned binders off last year etc etc

can topps do a pdf of the binder covers and checklist so i can put them in last years binder, currently using the play pitch that was given away at the match attax lunch event, gillotenin in 2 and printer lists on the inside cover

I really do NOT like the new binder, the only good thing is that you can add more sheets easily. I do this anyway with the other binders by removing pages from spare binders and taping them right in at the joins to the new binder.
The cover is far too flimsy, they should at least have laminated it. Will not stand the test of time so might be a good idea to get a new one and keep it unopened in case you want to sell your collection in years to come. Just put them in the new binder and youve got a mint one.
It would be a good idea as in the previous post to include the extras in the same album, should have been like that from the start anyway.
I have all the binders from 07 08 through to present and the new one sticks out like a sore thumb when displayed with the others on a shelf.
Topps just simply need to consider how many different cards they are going to produce for that season and know that there will be people who will want them all. They then need to put the required amount of pages in and there will be no need to add any more. The world cup one was the worst, by the time id added tesco ledgends, the full set of not released in the UKs, all limited editions, picture variations I had added about 6 new pages to the book.
BRING BACK THE OLD BINDER, JUST PUT ENOUGH PAGES IN IT.

The most awful binder ever! Overall, the cheapest pathetic binder ever!

Topps have gone big time cheap. And this so called "Do it Yourself Binder" saves Topps tons of money.

Just use a 3 ring binder and put some pages in it, along with the cards.

Or use one from last year. Plain and simple!

One day Topps are going to go so cheap there will be no tin or binder.

I haven't got the binder yet as starter packs are just about to be released in Australia but I wanted to offer something. In australia we have two series' of rugby league cards released each year. One is a lower class, lower priced set designed for kids and average collectors to collect and there is also a premium set priced higher but including beter quality cards and lots of signatures.

Both of these sets are released with quality binders that have leather on the outside. This is on top of a very hardcover to make sure the cards are safe. Pages can then be inserted via the rings inside the binder and can be bought from the local newsagent for 50 cents. There is also a zip all the way round so checklists can be kept inside the binder.
While improvements are needed in Australia with these cards the binders are well made and highly reliable and so a similar one should be adopted by topps. The only concern I have for using this binder with match attax is that the binder costs with 2 packs of cards (rrp.2.99) $20 and as Match attax is currently a very cheap collection they may not want quality if it means a high $$$$.
Hope this helps!

As others have said, its just reeks of cost-cutting and cheapness. Topps must be struggling, reducing the number of cards per pack too. That or they are just plain greedy. Either way it ain't pretty...like the binder.

Terrible!

The binder had to be put together and i took ages to work out how.
It's really hard to turn the pages becuase the folds are bad.
It's so big it's really hard to hold and carry around.
The playing pitch is awful. It doesn't have any slots and the cards just fall off.
Plus tye opposition can see the cards you're not using if they look carefull at the binder.
