Topps Premier Gold 2014 Plans?; Box breaker or Player collector?

Hello everyone. I'm sure all of you are just as excited as me for the upcoming Topps Premier Gold collection (i have even started saving up for it already!!)

I was wondering how people are going to approach this collection. Will you be buying a few boxes (maybe even a case?) or will you focus on one particular team/player??

I personally may buy a few mini boxes (just for something to open!!) but mainly focus on the Sunderland cards in the set and particularly focus on the 2 main players i collect - Wes Brown and Lee Cattermole.

It will be interesting to see peoples different viewpoints!!


P.S I know it doesn't really have much to to with this post but it would mean a lot if you could check out my YouTube channel. I am currently running a 1000 Subscribers competition with some very nice prizes to be won!!

I will try and collect a complete Arsenal base set, a complete parallel set #/99, one or two #/11 and if possible a 1/1. Also a complete set of normal autographs and relics, plus some rarer autos and relics (depending on price) and at least one printing plate. Hopefully Aaron Ramsey, not Mikel Arteta will feature on the autos this year.

All things Burnley for me!

I will be buying a box of 10 mini boxes this year, as I have made a couple of good sales recently on ebay that will cover the cost and last year I missed the thrill of opening lots of boxes. Hopefully I will get some good stuff out of those boxes that I can either trade or move on to get some decent Burnley cards. I will also be trying to collect the players that are in my player collections that feature in this set.

I am hoping that there might be a few forum case or box breaks happening again this time so that I can buy a team that I actually collect!

i'm going for at least the base, parallels numbered to 99, one printing place, regular autos and relics and the dual relic, maybe dual auto if any or the die cut crowning achievement card (if any) of manchester united, also might open a couple of boxes!!

Got absolutely ton of Palace cards in this set last time round, as I didn't think we'd be back for a second appearance!
Definitely getting the regular base cards (will just wait for a sensibly priced set on UK ebay) and hopefully an example of each of the insert cards. Going to give all the various limited colourways a swerve this time as it's addictive and expensive!

Looking forward to the release, the base card previews look fantastic. Hoping for a better selection of autos this time around. I only bought PC cards last time as that way you are getting exactly what you want and given that the prices dropped a lot and pretty quickly in most cases, I will be doing that again this time around however, will be holding off from trying to get everything straight away!!

Not sure if anyone posted this yet: http://www.cardboardconnection.com/2014-15-topps-premier-gold-soccer-cards

Good bit of info.

As for myself, I'll be going for the base set and as many parallels as I can get. Hopefully more Gerrard and Henderson Relics and autos as well!

I will try and get at least on colourway set out of Cattermole and Brown.

From last years set, I only mangaed to get the regular base, green and orange parallels as the 1/1's are so hard to find!!

I think I'll be a bit more cautious than with the 2013 set - I paid over the odds for green cards when they first came out plus the auto & relic cards I got - if I'd waited for a few weeks they'd have been quite a bit cheaper.
Wanted:

Merlin Ireland 2002 / Kevin Kilbane mini sticker (Walkers)

Topps Total Football 2009 / SHSS 394 - Kenwyne Jones / Sunderland redemption card

Panini Jeans Fussball 1977 / Sunderland badge

Quadriga Soccer Stars 83 - 84 / 221 Colin West, 222 Leighton James

Overall the early signs are good if you are a 'single club' collector and want an 'easier ride' than last year:-

- 150 base cards (rather than 200) suggests 7 or 8 base cards per team (rather than 10)
- 50 normal inserts (of which 20 are captains) is not too onerous per team - means probably 2 insert cards for the small teams and 3 for the 'big clubs'
- just two parallel colours per card (purple and black) compared to last years 4 (green, orange, platinum and Premier gold)
- it doesn't sound like Topps are putting all those 1/1 printing plates into the packs (if this is correct then no doubt they will auction them separately on ebay instead though)
- they are keeping the popular autos and jersey cards (but no mention of dual or quad autos/relics, which can cost an arm and a leg)
- no mention of the random cards we had last year (Pele/Zola etc) which I didn't really understand the reason for

All good so far. :)

I will collect the Southampton cards. Will go for base full set and would like to have a parallel set but price might dictate. Autograph or memorabilia cards would be fantastic.

I would like to buy a few boxes as you can't resist opening up to see what you get. Just like a kid at Christmas. That's why after being 38 have not grown up!!!

I may have next years season ticket money to spend.

Man City team only again this season I'm afraid, I think the cost of the parallels can be extreme and that's even if you can find them. I'm still looking for two of last season's greens and only managed to pick up one orange. I hope that they improve on the autos and relics this season as they only featured Hart last time out.
