As many of you know, Topps has taken over a license from Panini for Champions League for the next 3 years.

I have received an email from a Chinese collector, who apparently has first hand info.
In my opinion its too soon to talk about Topps UCL cards, and design is probably to be confirmed.

Basic info

@Juan Francisco Certianly I think this is only mock-up design for testing purposes that somehow got leaked in China, even though China has no Topps headquarter as far as I know.

@Andy Thanks for sharing the images. I moved posts to appropriate thread.
What are your guys first thoughts on the collection, according to the images? Seams pretty much like any other Match Attax card set, although they promised "huge innovations" when they got the license.

I am not buying this until I see pics of the cards. Topps already get on my wick with their gold/silver/bronze bollocks of LE cards.
Not holding my breath on them being "innovative" on this new CL collection.

From what I saw so far, you shouldn't hold anything, really... This was (or still is) a great opportunity for Topps rising up against Panini, but either they will notch up the collection (both stickers and cards) or they'll massacred by Panini with FIFA 365 and see their CL investment going to the drain... And they better hurry up, CL is already going to the second round of group matches, with Panini releasing steadily their FIFA 365 all over Europe.

Saw now the LEs will be inside booster packs... 1:400 for one Gold LE? Are they nuts?

Topps always insert LEs in their booster packs. I got 4 LEs from the Premier League booster 14/15. People who love Panini will not like what Topps are gonna do with the CL this season.

I really like the topps cards, but I don't like their LE system which just turns me off before I even start.

With panini I feel like I have a real shot at collecting them all without going bankrupt.

Many collectors feel the same way. Yes there is many LEs released by Panini but at least they are all the same and you can pick & choose your favourite players. If you are starting to collect I highly recommend CL 14/15 from last season. The sub-set cards are lovely and different from one sub-set to the other. In addition, the LE cards are so cheap now you can get a Messi or Ronlado or Suarez for like 5-10$. Have a look at e-bay.

Still "amazed" by the "brain" in Topps who had the "fantastic" idea of printing the same player, but three times, instead doing a more broad choice of players and printed only once... 24 players printed in some fantastic material would be great, but I guess Topps doesn't really like to change... Panini was going the same way until two/three years ago, where their collections were revolutionized (except World Cup).

Hopefully, this will get Topps more experience and avoid the mistakes already done here... Still hoping for a card quality increase.
