Fantastic guide Andy!

I did not know that there were so many cards and merchandise in this set.

So the only thing I can add to this guide is a link to the Match Attax 2007-2008 guide you previously created.

To clarify, extra sets are issued later then the original collection, and they mostly include update cards of players who changed their club during the transfer window.
