Wow. I didn't know there was a Klose Champion. Have you got any spare????. I was aware of the 2 versions of Ballack Chanpion but didn't even realise there was a Klose Champion !!antorine wrote:I don't live in the UK (but in Denmark) and we got about 5-6 limited editions from starter packs and tins (including Messi). Two we got for free from the local book store (they had received some extra limited editions from the distributor). The rest of the limited editions we got from Danish sites, ebay or from trading. We have 20 limited editions in total. I think that should be all there is.
Some champions we got from being lucky, others from Panini or from trading and the rest from ebay. I found it really weird though why they would make fx one international champion version of Klose and then a UK champion version of Klose with the same picture - only his shirt varied in the two versions. They actually made two versions of many of the German players and as I recall also some of the Dutch players. We have two base cards of many of the players from these countries. And then as I mentioned two champion cards of Klose.
But in Denmark you could get both the international and the uk versions when you bought the cards so both collections were "easily" available here.
Anyway - most importantly we sold all extra cards without a loss on the internet. Base cards, ff, star players and goal stoppers were all sold. So at lthe end we only paid for the cards we actually wanted and not for the ones we got but didn't need.
I think it is expensive to collect these cards. But you can get lucky - as I did recently when I bought 17 limited editions (champions league) for £30. And it's fun collecting. I do it for my son but I'm as enthusiastic as he is
