From my experience Torres LE was in Match magazines not sold in London area (found in Bristol/Plymouth), Behrami was more London based (found in London City & Luton).

Please let me know if you got Torres from a London area store or Behrami from a store well away from London.

Fernando Torres LE is a limited edition international, not available in england (Topps though has them).

Here in SA I can get him in +/- 20 packs of cards... I have him three times

I got 10 of them in Match magazines in Plymouth in the UK (bought on the monday - which is the last day before they were removed form the shelves).

Last year I bought 70 copies of match magazine after I saw Torres for sale at £10 plus on ebay, the 3 copies I purchased in Exeter yielded 3 Behrami's but the 67 I bought in Torquay all had Torres!!!
Needless to say I was quite happy about that

Oh okay... one disadvantage of collecting in SA is that the limited editions are really hard to get because we don't have WHSmiths or McColls, not even Match Magazine or MOTD mag. Only KiCK... i still need 9 08/09 limited editions!!!!

I got Fernando Torres from a Topps promotion where if you submitted a video to Topps TV you got him free. Originally the picture shown was Giggs but they changed it to Torres
