Release delayed until March. No doubt to try and avoid out of date players at old clubs

I ordered cards from Click Distribution on Monday shortly after their e-mail came out bringing the release date forward (to 24th February).

They have not deducted any money from my credit card yet, which tells me they have not received the cards and they are certainly not dispatched yet.

Certain individuals are selling them on eBay just now saying they are in stock now, but I doubt this is the case.

Today Click Distribution sent an e-mail saying their website is going down for an upgrade from Friday 27th February to Wednesday 4th March (which seems a very long time to get a new system operational...normally I would expect it within 24hrs).

I hope I am wrong, but my money is on these cards not turning up as hoped before the weekend. :fing
Cards were received by Click yesterday and dispatched yesterday, mine will be with me today as I guess many others will be.

Can understand the negativity from some but personally I think they are fine with the exception of the printing plates which is a joke, they have gone down well with the people who asked me for them before they were released.

Autographs as usual will settle at a lower price but as usual prices start off high upon release.

Seems at times that no matter what a company does to try something different people are not happy.

The companies have to use up what they have as well as adding new items. It would be better if they were all on card to avoid any overstock and avoid complaints.

If you think this is over-priced then lets hope companies don't bring out the Super Premium products they bring our for other sports in the US.


I asked the question to Topps earlier on their Facebook page about the printing plates but for some reason it seems to have been removed so i've asked again.

Can you tell me why all the printing plates are blue please with just a sticker on the back saying THIS IS THE ACTUAL "insert colour " PRINTING PLATE USED TO MANUFACTURE THE 2014/2015 TOPPS PREMIER CLUB CARDS. Yet in Premier Gold the plate is the colour it states on the label on the rear. If the sticker says Magenta for example the plate is magenta.

Await their reply with interest.

I know nothing is aimed at me and I do see where you are coming from.

I am not a defender of Topps by any means and this collection has faults, printing plates being the main issue for me. I don't think they have thought about the whole collection as much as they should and a couple of other items should have been included but I don't think its as bad as its being made out either.

The point I was making about the US sports premium items is that some build them up with all these rookie/ auto cards included and you open it and find a rookie or auto that is worthless as soon as the packet is open, its one of the main reasons I stopped collecting them myself.

These plates have had no ink on them, so they are NOT the actual plates used for the cards.
The blue colour is the original colour of the plates prior to press.

I'm a litho printer and work with plates daily.

I saw your post yesterday but didn't want to mention that to them straight awa. That was going to be my follow up :D

Had a reply from Topps this morning regarding the plates

The Premier Gold collection is produced by the US and the Premier Club collection is produced by the UK.


Due to this different suppliers have been used to produce the plates used in the printing process and hence the fact that they are different colours in appearance, however the end result is the same as the plates are specifically issued to the colour of ink that they are going to be used with. Therefore the Magenta Plate will only be used with magenta ink regardless of the colour of the plate.

I hope this helps

Kind regards

I know when they released a list of autos ages ago that I was pleased to see Jack Cork was one of them. Now he is at Swansea, And looking on ebay a card is out with him in his Saints kit. Is there an others out there with players moved on to new clubs?
Samuel Eto'o and Wilfried Bony I think are the only two others unless i've missed any
