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

If the member who has taken Fulham wants to take an alternate team, then I'll take Fulham.

It doesn't hurt to ask! :)

Renko in normal circumstances I would but I don't have any of the Fulham cards in my collection. Why not try another team? I'd be happy to swap doubled and if we were lucky enough to pull an auto each and mines was Fulham I'd swap.

Folks 5 slots left. These cards go for 1-3 quid each on eBay and the autos go for 20 plus quid. It's a no brainer !

Ok well guys we gave it try but unfortunately I'll have to cancel this break. I'll be sure to post the hit I do get in the box or 2 that I open and will let the others who have contacted me about the sealed box know too

Sorry for the delay in responding to the thread and to pm's.

@ Monkey76 can you confirm here on the thread that they will take the remaining 3 spots (Derby, Bolton and Blackburn), if so then the break can go ahead :)

I can do Bolton Wanderers but can't afford the other 2. What about if we all chip in for the other 2 teams left and share them out?

According to the tracking these will arrive tomorrow, the last info says customs clearance in Dublin so I'm expecting some charges so I will post the charges when it arrives and pm everyone with my paypal details and their total cost of the slots they have taken.

When doing the break I will open one box at a time and post when the auto and possible redemption is hit and post all cards pulled at the end, as there will be doubles it makes it easier to sort out the cards into teams and then post a full run down per team.

Just an update, when the the tracking info says customs clearance it means it is currently being cleared through customs and not that it already has (my mistake) and it's still there so I doubt I'll have them by tomorrow, hopefully Friday and we can get payments made and have the break done over the weekend once payments are received

The boxes have arrived today, I was out when the post arrived but they left a letter saying it will be in the P.O later this evening and customs is 38 euro so lets just say $50 (apparently new charges were introduced in 2014 so I'll be expecting customs on any parcel I import into the country. Just bare with me as I work out everybody's cost as the 4% paypal fee will be different depending on how much you pay. As soon as all payments are received we can crack on with the break :)

Ok all fees have been calculated and after everything all payments add up to $260. The total cost is $250 with $10 (4%) being taken by paypal as their fee. I will pm all members with their individual cost and thank you to all members who have participated and especially to those of you who have taken slots to help this break go ahead

So I'll have the boxes at half 4 but I have darts tonight from 7 and I probably won't be home till around 1 in the morning so I'll be absent from the site for that time (don't worry I don't drink or smoke so the cards will be perfectly fine with respect to that :P ) and I doubt I'll have payments received by 6 to open them but I will do the breaks at 1 if you like but there's no excitement in that as most will be asleep or I can do them first thing tomorrow morning say 12? Up to you guys just let me know :)

Haha, Nerves are certainly a big thing, all my friends drink to take away the nerves but being an athlete I can't so my nerves leave when I'm confident, managed to win the Irish College Doubles last year but apart from that I haven't won much. And we also break boxes for the forum and love the premier gold 2002 set... are you sure we're not related? :P

12 slots paid everyone. I just got the boxes in hand and I'm really itching to open these so once we have at least 17 slots paid we'll get on with the break, the other members can pay after, everyone in this break has been an active member on the board so I'm willing to trust them to pay by the end. Even if someone doesn't 36 x 3 = 108 x 8 = 864 / 20 = Over 40 cards per team so at 50p a card you'd make more than your money back :)

6 packs into the 36 pack box and no auto yet. But these cards are superb, the gold stamping of the crest is a very nice touch
