This is among one of the most confusing sets I've ever collected... it has so much to gather that I'm fairly certain I won't finish it completely :p

When will Topps end the GSB c**p? Verstappen Bronze and Silver limiteds are basically the same photo, with a very slight different smirk :rolleyes: But limiteds design look quite nice.




Base cards are not the best, but again, it varies so much that I'm fine with that... Specials are ok, loved the team logos and some insert stats (like Sainz being the driver with most laps in 2021).

XL, exclusives, parallels, autographs... this is madness! Strangely enough, I kinda like this madness :cool:

Will pass, considering it too much to finish and it is not available here in Croatia...
However, can't wait for sticker album tho.

Yeah, almost impossible to finish it completely without paying too much... and I'm not even talking about the parallels and autos, the limiteds themselves are tough to get all.

Opened now an orange Verstappen multipack... orange, dutch... dutch orange?

UR means Ultra Rare or what? I was puzzled with the limited, looked Bronze first... I don't even know ratios for the four variations o_O

Yes, there are four variants this year instead of the classic GSB, and this is the rarest. Same with Hamilton's Union Flag in the other multipacks and Leclerc's Ferrari Red in mini tins.
Also, the 12 Master&Apprentice cards are mini tin exclusives. I don't know if I was lucky because they are inserted randomly or if it is meant to be like that, but I managed to get all of them in 3 mini tins.
In the checklist included in the album, there is no XL-card count, but it is listed that the Limiteds of Albon and Stroll are exclusive to topps.com. Albon is out, let's see what surprise prepares Topps for Stroll...

Thanks for the answer. I would really like to know ratios for all four variants, Topps always did it before but I can't see it anywhere now.

I think each mini tin has specific EX cards, so if you buy all three colors, then you get the full set... doesn't make sense to think otherwise, right Topps?

XL checklist is available on Laststicker and it's a big one too (16 cards)... Each multipack has the same XL, so four there... Starter has the same XL? I got Verstappen... so where's the rest? Releasing in some nonsense bundles later? Not for me.

Deck Box (Blister) brings one random limited? Might be the best solution for the remaining limiteds.

I remember that they did put the ratios in 2020 (last year was an exception, only 5 LE in total and easy to find, which was something I wouldn't have expected from Topps), but not this year.

It makes sense, but the fact that there are four different LE exclusive from 3 different mini tins makes me think that Topps might not put the same cards in the same color.

I got Verstappen as well in the starter. So, counting Checo from Launch Bundle and the four from multipacks, there are still 10 possible bundles pending to be released. Not for me as well.

Yes, they are different. I got Gasly, F1 Logo and F2 Logo from 3 deck boxes.

Tins with exclusive limiteds should be fixed, period. Who in their mind buys more than the three different tins? Topps is not thinking straight here, I'm not going to buy dozens of tins just to find all four Leclerc limiteds, it's already stupid that you need to buy doubles of tins just to try the four limiteds... At least EX cards are indeed fixed, Red-Blue-Green in order.

Mega Tins looking good for limiteds, four in each! Too bad they are not released in Iberia, just like Deck Box... Topps making it (even) harder for spanish and portuguese to have all limiteds.

Opened my full box... only around halfway I realized that those pink special are parallels... a complete waste imo :p Got a green Russell parallel (500) and F1 logo limited (very blunt card).

Topps has done it again with LE cards and I don't know why it keeps surprising me.

I usually order products from Germany (both Topps and other sellers) because I found them more reliable. I went yesterday to my usual newsagent's to ask about this collection and they have received nothing yet... maybe the release date is different here in Spain?

Oh look, it's the Panini guy too :D

So it's basically two limiteds NOT in the checklist and Hamilton XL, only exclusive there? Sure, I'll head right away to Silverstone!

In the store near me (big one in a shopping mall), they have there all products... Spain also releases faster than Portugal of course, so try a different one?

Hello,

Do you know if this pack will be available in Germany? https://uk.topps.com/formula-1-2022-turbo-attax-deck-box-pre-order-now.html

Or better, how can I have Lance Stroll Diamond Limited Edition card without need to pay the Import taxes from UK? In other topps' shops I don't find this card.
Try to ask german Topps, maybe they'll do it later... I'd say they have to do it anyway, it's on the checklist and they can't sell only on the UK website (or it wouldn't matter to have the other websites).

Try to ask german Topps...
...and be prepared to receive an answer in about 4 weeks

They have to do so much that they don't do after all... I think they're currently working with far too few people on far too many projects. Things like that tend to be forgotten. It's just the customers, so not that important ;-)

The german CS was so much better before, I always got answers in 1/2 days... lately it's indeed weeks and last one was pitiful, answering one month later to my complain about UCL live pack 5 (when they informed first it was just the semifinals), asking if I was complaining for not receiving all the stickers (which I certainly did, my complaint was for their bad info).

Now they are changing their warehourse location, so a month ago, right when I was about to order some from F1 and Bundesliga single stickers... sincerely hope they still have it there later, but they indeed need more people there.

I know someone else who has had the same thing happen as there was next to no advance notice. :oops: So I hope, just like you, that the missing sticker service will be back soon.
