Rare 2002 Topps Premier Gold Box Break

Hi all,

I managed to purchase 3 boxes of the old 2002 Topps premier gold. I'll probably sell 1 as I know these are rare and many people would like a box to get the collection themselves. But will do a 1 maybe 2 box break by the team on here. Please comment below if interested :)

UPDATE:

To the cost, each box cost me $30, I know, $30. I don't know if I'm deluded but that price seems exceptionally cheap to me.


So lets just go for the 3 box break eh? Cost of the boxes = $90, Shipping of boxes = $55, Customs = ??? (it is being shipped by USPS and so I've never encountered customs over 50 euro, whereas the UPS customs were 100 euro. Postage of cards = $3 (if under 100 grams) $6 (if over 100 grams) so lets just say $3 x 20= $60.

Cost: 90 + 55 + 60 = $205, lets just round that to $200 / 20 teams = roughly $10 per slot. There will be the paypal charge of 4% I believe, as it must be sent as goods and also any customs which will be incurred but payment for the customs will not be needed till the boxes arrive.

BUT there is no Chelsea or Spurs auto (thanks for the info Steve) and so the Liverpool and Southampton slot will be $15 (they have 3 auto's and the potential of an Owen, and Southampton have 2 auto's and the potential of a Le Tissier) and Chelsea and Spurs $5. As this break is relatively cheap I will not tier all teams in it and again as it is so cheap we can just random the redemption (if pulled) :)

Arsenal - Green6677
Aston Villa - Portlaw PAID
Blackburn Rovers - ofb1988 PAID
Bolton Wanderers - monkey76 PAID
Charlton Athletic - ofb1988 PAID
Chelsea - ofb1988 PAID
Derby County - Tollyman PAID
Everton - Green6677
Fulham - ofb1988 PAID
Ipswich Town - ofb1988 PAID
Leeds United - ofb1988 PAID
Leicester City - Tollyman PAID
Liverpool - Futeraliverpool PAID
Manchester United - bibster PAID
Middlesbrough - Tollyman PAID
Newcastle United - ofb1988 PAID
Southampton - monkey76 PAID
Sunderland - Portlaw PAID
Tottenham Hotspur - ofb1988 PAID
West Ham United - bibster PAID

Here is a checklist

http://www.soccercardindex.com/checklists/topps_Premier_Gold_2002_checklist.pdf

Charlton, Fulham, Ipswich, Southampton and Liverpool all with 2 or more auto's in the set. The odds are 1:36 for auto's and 1:72 for a jersey redemption. Each box will contain 36 packs

I do indeed Steve. But as a collector I would even love a redemption card for my collection, I'm not sure how rare the redemptions are nowadays but personally I've seen more jersey cards than redemptions so I think it'd be something cool to add to your collection, especially if you have the jersey card of that player you know?

I do think I managed to get these at a good price anyway ;)

they are just a redemption card not for a named player topps just sent random cards back so it wouldn't work as part of a team slot but all of the auto's came in the box except for 2 or 3 players that had smudges with the pen i think it was ledley king and the other might have been ashley cole.

When you pay via paypal it'll say currency where you would click dollars and if you have pounds in your paypal account they will do the exchange rate there for you. For example I just paid the $145 for the boxes and it deducted just over 109 euro from my account

Sorry for the delay in the update of teams selected. I had to step out for the evening. The boxes are being shipped on Tuesday and I will proceed with the break once all slots are filled.

If all spots don't get filled, the break will be cancelled and I'll be selling 1 maybe 2 of the boxes on ebay to make back some of the cost of these (I bought these to break on the forum and bought them before I put it up looking for interest as I know they would have been snapped up if I waited to get payments first and that's why I'd be selling some) and just try make as close to a set off the box(es) I do open so you may have a chance at a box of these yet.

I'll leave this run till Monday 24th and if it's not full and if people who have taken a spot are interested in a particular card or player just let me know and I'll look out for it for you guys in what I do open :)

you'll definately get a set from 1 box but if you dont i have hundreds of odds for trade,a decent auto in each box should cover your costs.

That would be $26 (without Customs and without the 4% paypal fee but I have taken $4 off for postage to you as it is 4 slots, if postage does cost less to you I will refund the difference).

Each slot covers the 3 boxes so you will get 3 boxes worth of each team

@rid25 - if the break isn't filled and boxes are sold, shipping and customs of the boxes to me would be factored into the cost I put the box at. Just in case you think it'd be $30
