Limited Editions

I just want to get some ideas on what collectors would prefer topps to do regarding the distribution of limited editions. I think last seasons choice to issue limited editions for subscriptions was not a winner for topps and that few actually subscribed or completed their subscription for the limited at the end. I think they should go back to putting limited editions in special boxes at special stores and also more in magazines and multipacks. I think it would be better as well to have say 15 set limited Editions or even 20 (1 special player from each team) and make the production numbers on some lower than others so there are harder ones to get. They should also make it a lottery as far as what might be in packets in magazine (not just the same one on a set week) and boxes, multipacks and starter packs. I think it will make collecting more fun and also will be good for topps.

Any rate just my ideas would love to hear others

Last season from a collectors point was poor and just seemed a money grabbing exercise from Topps. Hopefully they learned a few lessons.

I would prefer to see randomized limited editions in starter packs, boxes, tins and magazines
one from each club would be better rather than just the usual suspects

A wider variety would go down great but Topps seem to have a limited pool they prefer to choose from

Hopefully topps monitor this forum as they will be the winners from more sales and the collectors will be the winners collecting a better collection. Panini have proved most avid collectors don't back away from large numbers of limited editions. So I definitely think topps can increase the numbers of limited editions.

I think the subscription limited editions were a big success for Topps as they now have however many thousand people paying 8.45 a month to subscribe.

I didn't like 3 limited editions of players

I would like a range of clubs getting limited editions - not just the little kids/armchair fans' teams

I would like a broader range of players - so not Gerrard yet again!

.
Bring back Championship Match Attax!

Then for 2016-17 season League One Match Attax :-/

Yes I hope they get rid of the 3 limited editions of the 1 player and produce more options from different teams - I think Lampard has been the best player of the premiership for a long time and he deserves a legend limited on the year of his leaving - just my opinion

Yeah. I disliked the Bronze, Silver, Gold versions of one limited edition but don't mind trying to buy as many binders as I can to get different LE cards.

Not expecting them to make 70 Limited editions but I think 10 would be great. Or even 20.

I don't mind the Gold, Silver and Bronze Limited Editions so much, but i hope they do them differently so that for example players from Burnley, Leicester, Q.P.R, West Brom, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace had Bronze Limited Editions. Players from Hull City, Sunderland, West Ham, Stoke, Swansea, Southampton and Newcastle had Silver Limited Editions and finally players from Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd, Everton and Spurs had Gold Limited Editions!

Like people have said i am also sick of seeing the same players getting Limited Edition cards each year, like Gerrard and Tim Cahill in the past!

Tim Cahill was only done so many times in the past due to his popularity in Australia. I must admit though he had a lot. But I think Everton defiantly need an LE this year. Not had one since 10/11

True. Everton deserve a LE for their performance recently.
Especially Baines or even Barkley.

I don't think Man Utd should really get one but if they do, not sure who it could be. Hopefully it's Juan Mata but I am doubting it.

Maybe De Gea - with players like Smalling in front of him he deserves more than a limited edition

Yeah. De Gea has been deserving a rare card for a while now.

If they put Rooney, or RVP, it'll just be a bit too expected but for the past year, De Gea (winning the Player of the Year) is probably the best player in the team.

I think the starter will be guaranteed a Limited Edition from Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City as they're the clubs that get people interested and those clubs sell.

That means it will be six different players unless they get really creative and go for 18 different (I doubt it)

We can only hope for 18 different from a range of teams which would be great but I guess they will go for the easy route 6 players Gold Silver Bronze and it will be the same old teams again Man U chelsea Man City Arsenal and maybe Tottenham - I hope I am wrong

Its bronze silver and gold again. It says so on the link where it talks about the binder and the tin. Tactic cards look good for matchplay.

Same old same old expected then, not surprised given its a bit of a cash cow for them and the magazines who distribute the Limiteds for them. Just hope they don't cock up like last year with the Walker card.

The info in the link seems to be based on last years info. I think there is some guess work going on! Perhaps the Gold, Silver and Bronze will appear this year, but until Topps confirm the details, I wouldn't trust that link as gospel.

I would think it would be a week to soon for a preview pack to be advertised with the magazine, it will probably be advertised in next weeks issue (9th September) with the Preview pack being released the following week (16th of September). But you never know with topps they have done some strange and interesting things in the past

Did we not have 3 issues with preview packs last year? 1st pack with the Trophy and some error cards and then the other 2 weeks with just base?

If so, then there could be news tomorrow of them being included in the 9th September issue. This then leaves the 16th and 23rd (week of release) for 2 other packs.
