Default 2014-15 Topps Premier Gold Soccer Cards

2014-15 Topps Premier Gold Soccer Checklist, Info

From Cardboard Conmection:

'Following up on their 2013-14 release, Topps Premier Gold returns for the 2014-15 Barclays Premier League season. The hit-centered product promises ten total hits, including one autograph or memorabilia card per pack.

The base set checks in at 150 cards and marks a decrease from 2013-14, which had 200 base cards. Serial numbered Purple and Black parallels round out the base options.

Autographs look to be the main focus of the premium soccer product with five per box. Purple and Black serial numbered parallels carry over from the base set to the autograph cards. Autograph Relics combine a signature with a jumbo jersey piece. A new addition, Crowning Achievement Die-Cut Autographs are a guaranteed case hit.

Memorabilia cards also continue their prominent role with five cards per box. Again, serial numbered Purple and Black parallels offer increased memorabilia rarity.

Lastly, a total of 50 inserts complete the product. This includes the 20-card Captains insert that features top captains from the league.

Check back for more 2014-15 Topps Premier Gold Soccer information as it is made available.

Estimated Release Date: 12/17/14
Product Configuration: 10 packs per box, 5 cards per pack
Price Point: High-End Soccer Cards
Target Audience: EPL Collectors, Autograph Collectors, Memorabilia Collectors

2014-15 Topps Premier Gold Soccer Box Break
5 Autograph Cards
5 Memorabilia Cards
40 Base/Insert Cards
50 Total Cards'

Sounds like it'll be similar to last years. Hopefully I can find a way to get this in the UK!

Chrome looks a lot nicer. Has a premium feel to it. Also love the refractor parallel etc. you can do more with chrome than you can with paper. when they make the shiny foil paper like platinum its easily dinged etc.

CHROME IS KING!

Suarez will be a Barca player in the coming weeks, so doubt it.
It will feature Rooney or RVP because ManU s the miost bandwagoned team in the world, Hazard because he won EPL young player of the year, even though Ramsey's stats were just as impressive with half the amount of appearances, and Kompany because City won the EPL

Just as I'm starting to lose interest in the hobby, card makers start releasing products that are actually appealing.

I hope upper deck gets in on the action, I know they have MLS, but now they have seen how appealing international players have sold.

Exquisite EPL product...?

I don't think anybody other than Topps will have the rights to the Premier League for quite some time. I'd love to see UD have a crack at making a high end product but hopefully Topps have something awesome in store for us and blow us away

Yeah, Topps have the rights since 2013. The good thing about Upper Deck MLS sets was that they had relatively small production runs, especially the autos, usually only 25-35 autos per player, per set.

I'd be more interested in this stuff if they lowered the pricepoint a little bit. The checklist was too weak to bust at $200 a box for me last year.

I wonder how much these will be a box and what the insert selection will be for autos and jersey cards.

I'm sure I've read somewhere there will be 40 different signers/relic, er, people, so I'm sure that list will grow.

Torres on the packaging. Terrible auto list. Awful.

Needs Sturridge and Sterling!!! I am biased though

Agreed...this auto list needs to grow/improve or I'll be cutting back my order. We got spoiled with Prizm WC autos...

The problem with having all big names is they have to accommodate all the premier league teams and the majority of big big names are all within 6 teams or so and all 14 other teams can't be neglected hence the auto list above, the lacklustre names are all from the teams with the lesser stars.

Arsenal - Ozil, Bergkamp
Liverpool - Gerrard
Chelsea - Drogba

They are the biggest stars from the club at the moment (Bergkamp in the past and Drogba in the past to some extent even though he is back), I'm sure they will get a couple more from them and we've yet to see Man City or Man United autos where you have the potential for Aguero, Toure, RVP, Mata etc

Also this really is a release for fans of the premier league as well. I'm an Aston Villa fan and I'm delighted to see Delph there and Cole is only a new signing but he has been a good player in the past. I'm sure Leicester fans are delighted to see Schmeichel etc. The same with MLS cards, you're not going to go for the MLS sets in the hopes of getting massive stars but because you follow team league etc. Prizm was a set for universal fans who love football and wanted all the big stars whereas as this set is specialised to the fans of teams in the premier league and the league as a whole with the main teams having big stars but of course it will not match up to Prizm
