Despite being labelled as Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, they all look BLUE!!!!
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.

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.

They are not 'exactly the same' as I will illustrate below, but there's something not right about them for sure.

......so they aren't identical for sure.

However from experience with Premier Gold, you'd expect a yellow plate to look a lot darker and 'less blue' !

Maybe they are the correct plates for each colour... They just look like no ink has ever been applied to them.
My theory is that they either couldn't be bothered to clean the plates of residue ink
or
they have thrown the original plates away by accident or this whole idea was an after thought.
Either way they have run out another set of plates. Which have been nowhere near a press or ink.

Apart from the plates the rest of the cards in this serious are really cool.

Ah! Thanks for adding the pics - makes a bit more sense now!
Hold on a minute that black plate is actually magenta or Yellow - since when did arsenal wear a black shirt.
