Love that the Rodriguez numbered of his jersey Catherine and glad you could pick up that great patch Phil :clap

And again that Ronaldo is crazy. I can't wait to see who can find/pick up the platinum version or plate version ;)

If you do pull it it will be buried in that collection forever ;)

No thanks necessary, just glad we can all see what is pulled.

Hopefully when the villa quad auto is pulled that it won't have the Tonev 24 so that I'll feel like the auto is slightly inferior and it'll save me A LOT of money (even though the card itself will be awesome) :$

Nice printing plate Sean <br /><br />I've yet to pick up a printing plate. Have you got any cards in the mail? I'm still waiting for all of my cards. It's killing me
No I'm still waiting on mine too, mine have only been shipped in the last few days and the sellers are saying it could 3 weeks so looks like a long wait :-/

BUT hopefully our case from Blowout will be here next week and if the Pele 1/1 auto is not in the case I'm asking Blowout for a refund :653

just bought the Joe Cole 1 I reckon these will be worth quite a bit as they are a 1 off card
Printing Plates are an odd thing when it comes to value. A lot of card collectors do not see it as a card as it a plate and was used iin the production so they do not see it as essential to their collection (for example Agbonlahor parallel #/11 went for $15 but his plate #/1 went for $20).

But then other collectors see it as being greater than the card as it was used to produce the card and see it as being the first thing produced of the card and sometimes they even have ink (I've a family guy printing plate with dried ink still on it from production).

Either way each printing plate is 1/1 and they are cool as they were used to make the cards

How much?
I definitely overpaid for this one. But there will be other Guzan collectors going for his cards and there was an offer pending and really had to have this one so went with the buy it now price.

I'm destroying my funds so I may just have to wait and save the rest of my funds for any Agbonlahor 1/1 or the platinum Guzan of that card above that comes up otherwise I'll broke in a heartbeat

Congrats on that 1/1 Guzan! Your Villa collection is shaping up nicely!
Thanks man. Hopefully in the forum break the Guzan, Benteke and Weimann auto's are pulled.

I wouldn't no to a 1/1 or quad but the chances are slim :$

Really looking forward to seeing your United collection after you break your 3 cases

@Portlaw, have you noticed this one. Auction is still live if you are quick.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171204155602?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
Thanks for looking out for me. I might pull a base jersey like that in our case break so I've only been buying the rare cards like 1/1's or unique ones like the quad until I see what comes of our break, but thanks for keeping me in mind I appreciate it :D

If any one manages to see or pull one of these I'm in need of the Brad Guzan shot stoppers parallel #/11 (orange) and #/1 (platinum) to complete the rainbow. I'll givea finders fee especially to the anyone who can find the 1/1 platinum ;)

A shame they've used the same picture for both base and Shot Stopper
Thanks man :cheers


Yeah it is a shame, they did it with a lot of players. Seems like laziness on Topps behalf

I told myself I was done with the patches as I thought I had a piece of everything of the villa jersey possible in this set, however I was wrong, this popped up and is probably the rarest of the villa patches I've got in this set as I haven't seen one like it yet and it's the only 3 colour patch I've seen with the 3 villa colours (claret, blue and yellow). The Weimann patch is from the inside of the jersey, the bottom of the size tag :)

This is not my pick up but this Ozil 1/1 premier gold parallel base card went for almost $1000 :o The highest selling base card 1/1 I've seen to date and it was limited to buyers on that site, if put on a worldwide site like ebay who knows what it would've sold for

Unfortunately I've seen no crests of any team inserted but a good few teams have EPL badges on them Villa, West Brom, Crystal Palace and West Ham are the only ones I've seen of the top of my head.

Weimann 1/1 auto went for over $400 I didn't bid but have I missed something with that one? That price is crazy :o

Also I've been told by Topps that THERE WILL BE MORE HIGH END RELEASES IN THE FUTURE :fest

1st place- Ronaldo boots

3rd place- Bent boots

4th place- Ben Davies boots

I also mentioned it to them about maybe putting in crest patches to the next product like the do with american sports products and he said it was a great idea so hopefully an even better product next time round :clap

No Alan, I haven't picked up any myself. Are you sure they don't ship to the UK? I find that a bit surprising. The ebay listing may say it doesn't ship worldwide but if you put a bid on it, it should be ok :)

I've been stung by Customs twice now. I don't really mind the customs charges, what gets me is the 8 the Post Office charge as a handling fee.

Before I go an pick up this new card tomorrow, I'd like to know if anyone knows if there is a limit to the value of coins acceptabe as legal tender. Years ago I'm sure you were only allowed to use so many of any one coin. Anyone know?

I changed money in my bank yesterday so that I will be paying the whole 11.61 in 1p coins - 1,161 pennies!!!! The Post Office want to charge such an extortionate handing charge I'll be there to make sure someone in the Post Office will actually have to do somethign to earn their money. I won't be in any hurry, I'm retired so don't care how long it's going to take them to count the money. I hope a really big, angy queue builds up.

Am I going to have some fun.............

Alan
Is Royal Mail really that strict with customs Alan? :o

In Ireland An Post has only ever hit me with customs on large boxes and that would be approx 1 in every 10 boxes. Are those customs on small packages with cards?

I do like your plan of how to get back at them though :clap

Super pick up Diego :D

Has anybody else noticed a pick up in price of the parallels? Especially in the #/11 and #/1 of both base and hits?

The base hits seem to be going low but the low numbered cards are holding great value and seem to me to be rising in price, I know it is still early in the release but a lot of early heat from the set has blown over and still seem to be high

@portlaw

Yea man, I've noticed parallels have sky rocketed in price. Luckily I've completed most the ones I need. Still need a few more orange parallels but I might have to wait or pass at the prices they are going for. Any luck finding the Guzan shot stopped orange?
No still no sign of one unfortunately. I've yet to see one let alone lose out to one. Hopefully it wont be too long till one pops up, I'll feel a lot more at ease once I have the rainbow finished :P

Very early on I got both the Speroni 1/1's (platinum and Premier Gold) for something like 15 each (can't remember exact figures but they're on the forum), now I wouldn't expect them to go for less than 50 each. I think for the first 2 weeks, a lot of UK collectors weren't aware of the set (ie until the UK sellers started selling them in any numbers on UK ebay)

Glad I hovered up the majority of what I wanted early doors.

Also hardly got stung by customs for the first 3 weeks or so, now it feels like every overseas package! Is my address on a blacklist??

For the handful of cards I still want I'm trying to stick to uk ebay and Canada ebay as I can't bear any more customs surcharges from the post office!
All it would have took was one other buyer who wants a card too and that could be the difference between a $20 and $100 selling price, I've noticed most of the Villa 1/1's (base) going for $60-70, I did manage to get the Guzan 1/1 jersey card for a great price with the two #/11 jersey cards selling for more but nevertheless this set has been a lot more expensive than I anticipated.I still can't believe that the Weimann 1/1 auto went for over $400.

Do you not get charged customs from Canada but you do from other countries? I have 2 boxes coming in and do expect customs on those but never on small packages. It's a shame there aren't more UK sellers like the US but again as stated before a lot of UK sellers have their cards priced way over there true value

I don't know about that. My guess is that about 2/3 of this release has been sold now (if not more), based on the cards that have become available via auction sites. Collectors start to realize that cards are drying up and that they will have to pay more than what they originally thought was too much :-)

I almost can't image that Panini and Upper Deck have not been watching this and not think that there are opportunities with similar products.
Imagine that there were like 6 or 8 sets like this every year :fest
A lot of the numbered stuff is drying up, yes. But the early heat has definitely dropped, however that is expected with every release, a product is always hot at release as a lot of collectors get stuck in straight away and pick up their cards first which was smart with regards to numbered cards which have risen in price (heat will rarely drop on numbered cards) but not when it came to base auto's etc as they have fallen quite a bit. I agree with you about Upper Deck producing this stuff, it would be amazing with the patches etc, personally I wouldn't be a fan of Panini. Shame Topps do have sole rights to the Premier League. Would be great to see more than company release this stuff

Here is my complete Guzan jersey card rainbow. Unfortunately I had to pick between going for either all cards being 1 (his jersey number) or going for the uniqueness of the patch. I decided to go for the more unique patches and here is the finished product. All include a piece of the Barclays Premier League patch

@Pregra - It was on ebay when I purchased it.


The thread has become very hard to follow particular people pick ups so here is a link to my collection album. I will be updating it with my lower cards soon:

@KMoran28 - sorry for missing your question. It's a 1/1. All premier gold background cards are 1/1.

@Subzero3k - that's amazing, did you purchase it from them or was it received as in exchange for one of the redemption jersey cards? :)

Unfortunately I'm selling my quad patch card as I've a big purchase in a different set which brings me to a question. How would you feel if sketch cards were introduced into a high end football products?

Leaf produce sets of american football, hockey etc and have sketch cards of the players inserted. I personally love sketch cards (my avatar is a sketch card of Jupiter) and think they would be a very cool addition but just curious as to other peoples opinions on it
