I realise I'm a bit late with this, but what's the story behind the limited editions that are so hard to get hold of? Did Topps produce them then decide not to bother releasing them for some reason?
Wanted:

Merlin Ireland 2002 / Kevin Kilbane mini sticker (Walkers)

Topps Total Football 2009 / SHSS 394 - Kenwyne Jones / Sunderland redemption card

Panini Jeans Fussball 1977 / Sunderland badge

Quadriga Soccer Stars 83 - 84 / 221 Colin West, 222 Leighton James

There were 9 cards that were produced by Topps and intended for release in the extra series but hit by complaints from consumers that there were too many limited edition cards to collect, Topps decided to cancel production of these 9 cards and destroy all existing copies, aside from a few that were apparently given exclusively to the companies employees. However, some of these employees sold theirs on or a few copies slipped through the destroying stage and survived onto the market. The exception here is Dunn, which, although unreleased like the rest, was mistakenly released in some copies of a newspaper giving away Jenas limited editions in 2009. The 9 cards are as followed, roughly in order of rarity:

Antonio Valencia - (Wigan)
Deiberson Geovanni - (Hull City)
Steed Malbranque - (Sunderland)
Kevin Davies - (Bolton)
Micah Richards - (Manchester city)
Zoltan Gera - (Fulham)
Ryan Giggs - (Manchester United)
Tuncay Sanli - (Middlesborough)
David Dunn - (Blackburn)
