This eBay seller is trying to pass these off as an official 'Limited Edition' Match Attax card which he has clearly obtained through the 'Print Me' service that Topps provide

I was under the impression that producing cards like this was not allowed? And for them to have the audacity to then try and sell these cards for up to 29.99 is, I am sure you will agree, absolutely outrageous....and this is not the first time he has done this either. I imagine that the people responsible for the merchandising of these players would also look very unfavourable on their images being printed on these cards and then sold by this seller for commercial gain!

I would suggest that we all share this and make people aware that these cards are not in ANY WAY genuine and they are just the act of one person trying to make money at the expensive of either kids or parents who are unaware of what they are really buying!!

For Topps or Panini, or indeed any other company, to print and sell images of these players would cost thousands and thousands of pounds...for him to get these through Topps' screening process is incredible...or perhaps he has just printed these cards himself which would make this even more outrageous than it already is!

A couple of seasons ago, like PhilD I tried to have some 'print me' cards done of past Crystal Palace players (old legends) - being an automated process it took payment, but before they finished they cancelled and refunded me.

I did get one set done, which I guess slipped through the net as they wouldn't have recognised the player, but to get Messi and Neymar through the process is pretty incredible to be honest - I can only assume they were rushed off their feet that day and didn't do any checks.

Not angry about it or the resale of them though, plenty of people willingly pay loads of $$ to get limited parallel cards (1/1's etc) and there are much nicer Messi/Neymar etc cards out there (Futera etc) if you want to pay for something a bit smart
But the cards that people are prepared to pay good money for are GENUINE cards....not something that someone has mocked up themselves and is passing off as genuine cards....he is buying 3 normal cards and a foil....as well as the Limited Edition card that comes with it....for 3.99 or 4.99 and potentially selling that on for 70 profit which, as far as I am concerned, is near enough theft....his descriptions imply that they are genuine and real cards, and to people who know no better they are, when clearly they are worthless to anyone

hes not ripping anyone off if your foolish enough to pay that much money for a card you know nothing about then more fool you.

I find it bizarre that there are people out there who pay 15 plus for a 100 club card instead of waiting til the end of the season to get it for 35p
I couldnt disagree more with what you are saying

There will be hard working parents who see these cards who will be spending good money thinking that they are buying OFFICIAL Topps issue Match Attax cards rather than something that someone has put together simply to make a fast buck out of people who know no better...look how many of the Platinum cards have turned up in tatty/ poor condition on eBay because kids have no idea what they have...and if the kids have no idea then the parents often know even less about them!!

Why are the descriptions so deliberately misleading? If he had no intention of ripping people off why did he not state clearly that they were NOT official Topps issue cards and state that the cards are part of the Print Me option and cards that he has made up himself? I know the exact reason why he would not state that...because nobody would buy them....they could mock up their own cards and get a foil, 3 base cards AND a Limited Edition cards for less than 5!!!

And, quite frankly, I have no time for anyone who thinks otherwise on this issue

Match Attax don't only do Premier League cards...they do World Cup, Champions League and others

And this quote

BOAST TO YOUR FRIENDS THAT YOU HAVE THE BRAND NEW - NOT RELEASED YET LIONEL MESSI 101 100 HUNDRED CLUB - THE BEST CARD EVER!

is DELIBERATELY misleading....it clearly suggests that the card will be released by Topps....which it never will!
