Topps communication to UK people is practically nil, possibly because the cards are coming from the US and not being produced by Topps Europe. They are expected here anytime (which has been more difficult due to the Christmas/ New Year break) but to be honest prices elsewhere look better than what we will be getting here both as traders and collectors.
I would of thought it would cost more due to all them extra charges you have to pay from US,but to be fair i would pay anything since this is something i have wanted for a long time.

They also send them to other countries.
from what i see on ebay a lot of the cards are either from Hong Kong and US at the moment but we will just have to see.Looking at all the card on ebay just makes you want them all :rofl

The cards haven't arrived in UK yet.
Oh i know like you said above about it being new year and such but i meant if they were not to come to the UK these were most likely countries you could buy from at this moment in time.

I've noticed some Guzan memorabilia cards and they have blue and claret swatches which must be an error card as the jersey is yellow and black. If this is a mistake it's a very big mistake for them to make, along with the defoe error
I was very surprised by the defoe error you would of thought that would be a priority to make sure its the actual players photo on the card. :doh

The George Thorne West Brom swatches have red/black which is the away kit this season. George Thorne has not worn that kit for the first team in either competitive game or friendly as he was injured and only came back around October. Would be interested to know the details of the 'Player-Worn' jersey as its doubtful its from a game.
it would be interesting i think that there is always a lot of questions with player worn cards i would hope that some time in future they state what matches possibly.Phil i'm sure your disappointed that Saido Berahino has no card (from what i can see) what a player he has turned out to be i would not of minded an auto card for him.

To be honest I was surprised that Thorne was included given he has only a small number of appearances and was out injured from last January. Berahino should possibly have been included in the future stars subset as he is one for the future and if he keeps his head down (and fingers away from Twitter) he can go far
Lets hope that this becomes a successful product and next year he gets himself a spot :cheers .

I think thats the only thing it can be, maybe he put it on for half an hour when he was signing the autographs :rofl
I think you might be right i remember a pic on either another thread or here but it showed Villa players signing autographs i think they were wearing match shirts.

But with regards to my post above if no patch comes up with a premier league on it it doesn't mean it was used in the premier league, it would with regards villa though as they have so many cards in there that will need patches
I think there is just no way of knowing there is barely any information out there and topps are saying nothing about it.You would think though with it being such a massive step being the premier league they would be hyping it up on twitter and so on.This is why i'm rather speculative of its release here in the UK and again there is no clear indication of such a product being released yet many have asked where we can purchase them and unlike the US hobby stores are rare and yet with the match attax you have all info you need,i understand its more mass market but to really try a product you need some sort of reinforcement.

The back of the jersey cards say 'the memorabilia obtained in this card is not from any specific game, event or season'

So it looks like same event worn jerseys were used. The only Villa one which I know was used in a game was Benteke with the premier league patch, the other 3 may have been event worn
If true that is disappointing you would prefer game worn but i for one wont be put off the patches.

I don't know the Fulham jersey inside out but I don't think there are any yellow swatches? Another production mistake by Topps. Is it wrong to be annoyed at this?
I think they have made a big error with the patches they have managed to make a simple mistake with the defoe card theres no saying what else,and no there is nothing wrong with being annoyed at this as as collectors we have wanted this for a long time and we want it to just be right.

Portlaw, i have just researched the fulham shirt and not even their away or third shirt this season features yellow on it as far as i can tell and the last kit a fulham player wore with that type of fulham colour was a Mark Schwarzer yellow goalkeeping jersey from the days of them being sponsored by LG, so it has to be from another team with yellow on there kit this season or a team with a yellow kit like Arsenal (away) and Norwich (home). Petr Cech has also appeared in a yellow jersey this season as well as Everton having a yellow away kit both of which are again similar to the colour on the card, so topps have surely made another massive mistake as you say
The only thing I can think that happened with that card and the Guzan with the claret and blue is maybe they ran out of fabric from the jerseys they were using and had to fill the cards with something so used whatever was next. It could easily happen with the Guzan as he has over 100 hundred jumbo patches but hard to see it happen with the fulham jersey.

Or just a production error but the patches are chosen for the rarer #'d cards so it's a human error somewhere
this certainly does not look good maybe they knew of the faults and thats why theres little info about them? :huh:

Not sure how wide the UK release will be but there are 3 of us that I know are expecting some stock and as of Christmas Eve it was still on its way to us. Would I be surprised though if it all gets cancelled and doesn't arrive ? not one bit.
I'm going to hope for the best but i would not be surprised either.
