Sorry not calling it Birmingham, Black Country not Brummies ;)

Not much in the way of auction prizes, very poor cardwise. Only 1 signed card (Paul McGrath Topps Authentics) which was won by Gary for I think about 1500 cards after he has asked about signed cards. I won a Chris Smalling signed shirt for a low price of 600 cards.

Other prizes were Darren Ambrose signed which went for I think 650, Robbie Keane signed shirt as won in Match Attax Ad went for 520. I did bid but then regretted it so was relieved when the young lad bid again. There was also a Shay Given signed shirt as worn in Match Attax ad, Nike football and some tins and starters from Moshi, Match Attax, Star Wars and a couple of small figures. Maybe others which at the mo I can't remember.

Jonas Olsson and Ben Foster were scheduled to arrive about 2.30 but I left after the auction so not sure if they arrived on time.

Sounds like the auction and bidding was quite low, well done Phil and Gary on both winning auction items. Phil were any of the cards hologramed??

A great day today...

Met up with Victor Meldrew and his son.... also bumped into Phild just as he was leaving... and met up with mega and his son Harry.

Jack qualified for the finals today which was great... he then won his last 16 match ... but then lost to Harry in the quater finals ... then Harry lost in semi fianl to the eventual winner.

Brinden beat Joe in the final on penalties.

I won a Paul McGrath topps authentic signed card in the auction for 1550 cards.... the highest auction of the day.

Off to Wembley tomorrow ... so see you guys there .... Jack will have his green Villa goalkeepers jersey on.

Could anyone explain, for us who are foreigners, what kind of event is this ?
I am really curious to see how UK publishers organize this events, and all that marketing efforts.
Maybe a video of these events ?

I read quite few topic about some kind of "events" held, but to be honest I never understood how it looks like.

Usually here the only events we used to have is when collectors organize large gathering on main square. Unfortunately these days, you can barely see a collector in my town.

In all fairness, today was a great experience. I am 14, so this was my last year that I could play and I was glad to be able to finish in the semis :) the atmosphere as a whole today was great, saw some recogniseable faces from previous years. Because we had got to the regional finals, I thought it was a nice touch that we were able to get first priority to see the players, even though they didn't turn up until 3:10! But overall, I enjoyed the days and I could tell the younger ones did too. After every game, I showed respect to each and every one as then I felt that then they weren't feeling downhearted whether they won or lost and so I would then be setting a positive example towards the younger ones. But lastly well done to everyone that took part and I hope everyone enjoyed their day! :D

Thought I had better do a write up of our experience at the Birmingham event albeit a bit late.

Travelling from South Wales we arrived at the West Brom ground around 10.30. I was confused by the lack of a queue but later found out that they had opened the doors early. This was a blessing as it was not particularly warm and there was a strong cold wind blowing that side of the stadium. The previous 2 years this event had been held at the Villa ground in one large room. At West brom Topps held the event on the first floor in two rooms connected by some corridors. We were ushered upstairs by the friendly staff and just outside the first room there was a table where we gave our names and picked up the Hernandez limited editions we had registered for. The first room was set up purely for the swapping. On entering we were immediately hailed by shouts from forum member gt6943 (Gary) and his son Jack, who David my son have met before on various occasions. After a brief chat and noticing that there was hardly any queue, I took the opportunity to get our Match Attax Premiership swaps done. I had filled in three sheets and paid the £9.00 and got the final few cards we needed for our main collection and those we needed to complete a further two books we decided to complete as we had won a couple of full sets of limited editions using the Topps online pack draw numbers. We then went into the second room which had the stage, various other sections for topps like Skylanders etc, the Match Attax shop and the tournament playing area. Speaking to Gary he told us that from the previous tournament he had been to, using the HTH card was well recognized and people were able to counter that so we reverted back to an old team using a Legend card. David was happy with that as it was familiar to him and easier to remember than some of the teams we had. Armed with his team I sent him off to get playing in the tournament. As it happened his was first drawn up against Gary’s son Jack. He came back and said he had lost 6-5 but we had our Bronze regional heat card. He then admitted that he had won with his GK and went to sub his weakest defender with another GK but had placed his cards down wrongly and had taken off his strongest defender Doh !!! After laughing that off he went back to play again. In the meantime I went back outside to put our recently acquired swaps in the car and prevent them getting damaged. On my return Gary came over to me to tell me the shock news that David had got through to the last table and on turning around I could see that the Topps official was taking his name. He was very pleased whereas I was more amazed but proud he had got through to the last 16. We now had a second Bronze card but more importantly a Silver regional finalist card. Gary also mentioned that forum member phild had just left the building which was a shame as we have never met (perhaps next time). After some lunch in the car it was back to the first room to swap some Championship cards. I asked where I had to pay for this and was surprised when they said it was free – O thank you Topps. Three sheets later with just enough spare base left, I got all the pesky cards we needed to complete our binder. The day was getting better as time went on. After watching the auction I got in the ever growing line for the expected arrival of West Brom players Ben Foster and Jonas Olsson who were due to do a signing session. David had gone across to take part in the first round of the last 16. Sadly that is where it ended as he got beat 6-5. He only plays Match Attax when I drag him off to these events so he lacks the expertise and skill in comparison to some of the seasoned pro’s. Still it was a great experience to get to the last 16. Sadly this is the last year he could enter as he will be too old under the current rules next year. Ben and Jonas were late in arriving but luckily the 16 tournament finalists were fast tracked to the front to get autographs. I thought they were going to give out base cards for each player to sign but instead they had printed off some A4 size flyers. Once David got his flyers signed it was yet another dash back to the car to get Ben and Jonas base cards out of the binder. The queue which we had joined was quite long now and was not moving very fast. Later a Topps representative came up telling everyone that the players were only going to sign one thing per person. As it was they also run out of flyers so the queue went down a lot quicker and we got our cards signed. So in summing up this was our best event yet with finishing off our collections, getting the Ben and Jonas signings, getting our Hernandez limited’s, 2 Bronze regional heats and the most unexpected but for us a much prized Silver regional finalist card. Additionally I would also like to thank forum member Alanaman for sending us some alternative teams to use in the tournament. They were much appreciated and is yet another reason for being a member of the friendliest and best football card forum.
