Never taken part in one until yesterday at West Brom and then today at Wembley.

Yesterday I got a Smalling signed shirt for 600 cards and today a Kyle Walker signed card for 2600. Without sounding billy big balls and arrogant as I don't mean it to I did possibly have more cards than most if not all and my original intention was to use what I wanted to get 1 thing if I could and then give what I had left to the closest kid to me or a few to each for them to use but that was scuppered when they announced you had to declare the number of cards you had with you.

I think given that there are some young kids with only small numbers of cards who will not win anything especially something signed by a player it would be a good idea for Topps to take all the names of entrants and at the end draw out 3 or 4 names of people who won nothing in the auction to give them a prize otherwise they will get discouraged from taking part.

Last year it was more of a free-for-all with no declarations and cards from any year which just meant the same older blokes turned up and took all the prizes leaving nothing but starter packs of other collections for the kids. They claimed they'd sort it out but there's never going to be any way unless they introduce an age limit (but then they'll just get their kids to go for them?) - maybe a raffle is better perhaps?

That sounds like a great idea Phil.

Nice card you got by the way.

I think limiting it to one win per person is ideal as it does stop some taking the mick a bit. I genuinely couldn't go with the intention of winning more than 1 thing but I guess others would.

I see what you mean, but it's been one per person since I've been going (2 years ago?) which is good but still means you get a lot of people turn up with thousands of cards and stick them straight on eBay for a fortune. It's a difficult one as adults are always going to have more cards and, to be fair, if they've put more money into Topps, they deserve more of a chance (although I guess it's best if the kids win more).

I also like this idea Phil of people who don't win in the auction being put into a draw. And I do think that limiting people to only winning 1 thing is fair as well.

I would be really disappointed though if they put an age cap on the auction. It is one of the things that I look forward to the most at the event as there's nothing else for adults to get involved with! Plus it lets me have a clear out whilst picking up something nice to remember the day by
