Wow that is very nice of you guys to suggest, really kind gesture.

Of course I'll try be impartial to myself and will go with good old fashioned random draw as it would seem the only other option.

I do know that Blowoutcards won the first prize of Ronaldo boots (when you have a forum with 30,000 members and many who just visit the site it's hard to compete with), we won third prize, I've no idea about second but I would assume they are also signed boots and maybe 4th and 5th were boxes, I think the member who posted up a video here might have come 4th or 5th so maybe he could share what he won

Yeah ... Would love to know who won the other prizes and what they received from Topps :)
The member on here in fact won the 4th prize with Davies boots and also a box of Topps Premier Gold so congrats to him :) It's a shame there was no box with ours as it would have been great to even send a pack out to everyone. You never know though Topps may surprise us.

Jeff from Topps who has been great in replying to all my questions said that most of the items were worn by the players (all but 1 he thinks mightn't have been) but he does not know if they were game worn or not. There may be one way in deciding which were not worn at all by the player but it would involve a picture of each to see if they are the same boots which the player currently wears or has worn and also if they are the same size as the players shoe size. But I've seen a picture of the Ronaldo boots and they seem to be the same ones as you has used previously so we'll see when the Bent ones arrives, I'm hoping they are Umbro ones or his early nikes over his latest since his switch to nike. UTV :D

The Howard gloves are on ebay!

(And well done everyone for letting Sean have the boots - a nice touch!)
Really surprised they are not signed but I think the seller is asking WAY to much for those.

It was extremely kind of everyone about the boots. If it was any of the other prizes I'd want to give it back to the group or forum (if it was the Ronaldo ones I wouldn't even want them in possession for fear of damaging them and they are also so valuable that I would have needed to do about 100 case breaks to earn those) and have it given to someone who would appreciate it but with it being Bent and him still being a Villa man or was come the summer transfer window, they would be the centrepiece of my collection and it really means a lot.

I see the seller posted the email he got, for anyone interested this is the one I got:

Hi Sean,

Congratulations! You had the 3rd most views in the Premier Gold case break competition. You win a signed pair of Darren Bent boots. Please send your address to allow us to ship out the prize.

Thanks,

I was quite fearful that they wouldn't ship outside the US with the restrictions on sellers selling outside the US.

Thanks to everyone though and I hope you guys won't be disappointed... ;)

Haha, I was surprised no one said anything in the first place but glad it was a surprise.

Yes, there was a box included but it was to my surprise as well. When the delivery man knocked and I saw the box all I could think was how much will these customs be as the box was the same size if not bigger than the last but fedex mustn't charge customs as he just looked for my signature. Anyways when I opened it there was a box and the boots. I had to think about what to do with the packs as I would have liked to send a pack to everyone but to fit the pack in the envelope I would have had to open it and just put in the silver wrapper pack which I felt would take away from the fun BUT the main reason I opened them to do by teams was that everybody paid good money for their slot and if there was a 1/1 (which there was in this box) they would be disappointed especially with the 1/1 auto's going for big money so I got them packaged up and sent out and I'm glad they are arriving. I want to keep the contents a surprise for people but there was a numbered case hit autograph and a 1/1.

There will also be 2 members who will have a villa jersey or auto, this was because your team had no hits (parallel,auto or jersey) so I took an auto or jersey from the case break and put it into your package so you got something out of it. Out of the box there was one villa card which was a base and I also put that into someones package. I heard somebody say that every box seems to have a Villa hit, if I open a box/case and you want villa hits then you will be disappointed ;)

The boots look great, if someone was selling them you'd get more money selling them as boots then as as a piece of memorabilia as they seem to be dear (I had to give up football when I accepted my scholarship so I'm not sure of the new boots available). But again I just want to say a big thank you to everyone for the kind gesture these really are the centrepiece of my Villa collection :worship

I got a Henderson relic & Mcshane auto

Thanks :cheers
I may be wrong but that Henderson jersey looked to be a bit of a variant, not a major one but did seem a little different with a white seam if I'm not mistaken? :)

Glad everybody is happy with the cards, it was my pleasure.

Got my package today with the Guzan jersey, what a fantastic surprise.
Brilliant Sean, many thanks..........
How many times have you had those boots on
No problem at all. Haha, I'm a size 14 and the boots a size 10 so I don't think I'll even chance trying on the boots in fear of damaging them, I'll try upload a pic of them later this evening :)
