Hi, new here but thought I'd throw in my tuppence worth anyways.

In my opinion, UEFA screwed up massively in giving TOPPS the contract for CL series.

I have been collecting the Prem version since 09/10 season and the Panini since WC 2002, suffice to say the invention side of things always won by Panini. Topps are very limited when it comes to new ideas and what not. If you look for example at the German Bundesliga series and the Premier league one they are almost identical. If not one of them will use the same design of the other a year later. So they keep exchanging ideas without coming up with new ones.

This year we as collectors will have to deal with Topps and it's repetitivness on two different collections.

At the end of the day UEFA are looking to line up their pockets and TOPPS probably offered more to get the contract. Such a shame.

I don't want to play the devil's advocate, but Panini does exactly the same for both their stickers and cards collections. Take the Calciatori album (Italian Serie A) from one year, and the same design will be used for all the European albums the year after.

Same with the Adrenalyn XL cards; what's used in Spain or Italy one year is reused the year after for France, Poland and where-nots.

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't realise that becasue I don't collect Panini stickers for European leagues, only WC & Euro cup. As for Ad XL the earliest I have is Euro 2012. Good to know. Will keep an eye on the 365 cards when they arrive. ;)
