The atmosphere at about half of the stadiums in MLS is better than the majority of stadiums in England and Italy even. The level of play is much improved over 5 years ago. I'd rate MLS maybe the 7th best league in the world now behind Germany, Spain, England, Italy, France, and the Dutch league. The games are exciting in person and on TV. MLS attendance already beats the NHL and NBA. And it is only going to get better with the younger generation (even younger than me at 27) really embracing the sport.

I do agree Topps should make a USMNT product next year for the World Cup and a EPL/Champions League/Europe product, but saying MLS sucks is about 5-10 years old.

As for the product I am opening the case. 2012 Upper Deck soccer and 2011 Upper Deck SP were some of the best returns I've ever had. Actually I made a killing off of a 2008 case I opened last year. One card paid for the entire case. Fans really embrace the team sets and autos for even 'scrub' players go higher than MLB stars. Topps does not have a strong auto lineup compared to UD and the price is high, but they have added content and I think the Topps name will help.
That second paragraph is a joke! You sir do not know soccer/football. Bundesliga II is 10x better than MLS in terms of quality of play and 99% of MLS players would be honoured to play there.

Keep watching and supporting your minor league soccer.

I'll be happy to. I have season tickets for the Union and there's nothing more that I love than going to a match and supporting the team. Is it the EPL, no, but I know that and love the game. So happy to have a local team to support.

I hope so! I haven't been able to find any retail, so I need to live vicariously through others.

I've found a checklist that lists players names.

Anyone found a checklist that also includes the card numbers for all the subsets (managed to compile a checklist for the base set of 200 cards)

Thanks.

Anyone have any more info on the short prints and variations, especially the latter? This is as good as I've gotten with the variations:

Default Excellent list of players who signed autos

That checklist is far more expansive then the one originally circulating the internet that only showed 10-15 players signing autos. The biggest complaint about this product was that they didn't have enough players to sign autos. Looks like they got all of the stars (even though you need a redemption card to get the Henry & Cahill autos). Very excited about this product!

Tim: Looks like you got 2 Golazos (as Topps calls them), right? The 1/1 of the Besler Auto and the 1/1 of the Cahill patch. I would think that is an excellent box break to get 2 of those.

Yes - two 1 of 1's in the same case - I felt like it was a great break.

Nice to see Topps step their game up with the autos.

I'm going to post my two-box break in a bit...it was pretty awesome!


Also, are the SPs really short-printed? I feel like I got more than few in my two boxes.

But of course! Nothing outside of base, I don't think, but I'll post my break after I'm done with the scans and let you decide what you'd like.
