200 would never complete the set considering the fact that the subscription to match attax magazine to get three aguero cards is 104. That leaves one box to fill a binder which is not possible not to mention the various newspapers and magazines which would have to be bought.

My comment was based on 2 things that I have experience of in my life.
The first was while working The Entertainer toy shop. We would run regular swap shops that were hugely popular. I would say that more than half of the kids we sold Match Attax to, came in to swap cards. They did this to try and complete their collection. When we helped a child get the last card they needed, you could see their excitement. You could also see the other kids happy for him/her and eager to look at their completed collections.
My second experience is as a retailer of cards. I currently make a living out of selling trading cards. The bulk of my sales come from single cards. They aren't all foil/special cards. I sell a large amount of base cards. Why? Because people want to finish their (or more likely their child's) collection.
In regards to alanaman, this topic is about Match Attax Extra . A box of this years collection will give you a complete set. Well, all the cards you can get from opening packets (apart from possibly a signed Wilshere)
Fair point if you are just talking about the extras but the 200 was based on a full years pocket money which would have to buy the main book and the extras, now thats impossible.

Well as previously stated, an Extra box provides a full set, which you can pick up for 30 on eBay. Pretty sure the limited's aren't too much more. I'm sure both sets could easily be completed for 200 or less, with all LE's, you just have to find the right deals..
Im not trying to be arguementitive but I really dont believe you could do one book for 200 by buying packets and single shineys never mind two.

50 - for a full box (if you wait a while) which would give approx full base x 2 , full mirror foil (if your lucky) and approx 20 motm with maybe a couple of motm trades. 2 hundred club.
40 - minimum buying the remaining motm and hundred club cards singley
120 - mimimum for 15 limiteds 3x aguero 80 minimum, 3x giggs mags 9 if you hit all three different, 15 for 2 binders and a print me to get the wilshires, possibly 10 if you bought one binder and the rest on ebay. 10 for the 3 gerrards minimum from ebay to save buying multiple tins, 4 sun newspapers 2.
Total approx 212 to collect this and I havent included error cards, master card or the regional heats and finalist cards.

Then there is the extras.............

In saying that you could probably buy both books complete for under 200 but not collect it and there is various difinitions of complete. Some kids will be happy completing the checklist but I call complete having the lot including master and regionals. It is the aguero and toure limiteds and the fact that there is so many limiteds this year which I think would make it impossible to collect it for this money unless you wait till the very end of the season for the swap tour or buy the remaining cards from topps but even then it only knocks about 20 off it. Allow another 20 for selling doubles and you will still struggle to do both books with limiteds.

There is another type of collector, the adult serious serious collector who goes for a COMPLETE binder including errors, all limiteds, master and regional cards. These are obviously not on the checklist. It is this level of completeness which I am saying cannot be done for under 200. For me only then is the binder complete. Good luck with completing your binder whichever level you strive for.

I did that for the black book, I bought three boxes and ended up in profit. I sont include the signed cards as the only difference is a hologram but the legends are a different story. I still stick to my original statement that a kid buying packets could not complete everything for under 200. Lol.
