Topps Match Attax Tour – Mannheim!!!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Well ladies and gentlemen I am here to report that the TOPPS Match Attax Tour that visited Mannheim this past weekend was a blast! Topps Deutschland Tour Manager Marc Unger and team put on one heck of a show Saturday. There were special offers, giveaways, Meister match against some of the Topps Team and collectors from all around the community.

As promoted the show kicked off at 1000hrs. Saturday morning. Albeit a bit cold luckily enough the weather held out for everyone and thank goodness for the heated tents. The public was warm as they played, traded and collected their favorite Match Attax cards. From what I could observe during the tour there was a demographic of ages between 07-55 and a gender break down of close to 70% male and 30% female. I had the unique opportunity to briefly speak with a few of the players and collectors that attended and some of their quotes were “this is the best trading card game on the market” and “ Match Attax is the Hammer!” I have to agree with the public and the turnout was well rounded despite the challenging cold weather.
The special offers that were being promoted were (5) Booster Packs for 5 € and (1) collector tin for 12 €. I am sure most of you out there are much like myself in the sense that I am all for a good old pack of cards and collectors tins. There is nothing better than sitting down with some buddies and opening them up to find the hidden treasures inside.

Let me tell you I did just that, I purchased my first ever packs of Match Attax Bundesliga Trading cards. As always I started off by reviewing the back of the pack looking for the odds and what types of inserts were listed. The pack advertised that there are 401 collector cards available for the 2009-10 season, specialty cards like Club logos and Star player Cards (1 per 2.3 packs) and Match winner cards (1 per 5 packs) on average.

After a five-year absence, Topps has revived its Topps Tribute line for 2009 with every pack including an autograph or Relic card.

We’ve gotten our boxes in at Beckett HQ will in advance of Tribute’s Jan. 7 street date, and will have a Box Busters video shot sometime in the coming days (hectic holiday schedules permitting).

But until then we’ll let you examine the contents of a box busted off camera — one that did indeed deliver a hit per pack as well as three base cards and a parallel card in every one.

The base set consists of 100 cards — 83 retired legends of the game, 14 veterans and just three rookies and will includes parallels — Reds (1/1s), Golds (/50), Blacks (/99) and Blues (/199). It also will include Framed Printing Plates. You can read more about the product and see the preliminary checklist by clicking here.

After the jump, you will find scans of 18 cards — the notable half of the box — along with the in-box checklist, which you can compare to the preliminary checklist. (Not much appears to have changed based on a very quick glance.)

It’s worth noting that these high-end cards (suggested retail price is $50 a pack) will be condition sensitive because of their holographic surface. Several cards came out of packs with smudges and/or scratches— some of which may rub off (but we didn’t try it).

Topps has signed an exclusive memorabilia deal with No. 1 overall draft pick Stephen Strasburg.

The multi-year deal grants the longest-running manufacturer of baseball cards and the lone fully licensed maker of cards for Major League Baseball exclusive rights for autographs, game-used memorabilia cards as well as Strasburg’s image use on packaging and advertising.

In addition, Topps will also offer a line of autographed memorabilia.

It’s safe to say that landing Strasburg was likely not easy as other companies have tried to land the Washington Nationals pitcher, but instead have gone without him or made cards without using his name and likeness and included a small number of cut autographs in products.

It’s unclear whether the deal is exclusive for autographs, but Upper Deck’s foray into baseball cards without full licensing could have had a serious impact on Topps had the California-based company landed Strasburg and Topps had not.
