I forked out £40 for a bronze deli alli limited edition. Unfortunately the foil doesn't seem to be stuck very well to the card.

The foil is coming away on each of the four corners.

I've done an effective (for the moment) repair with pritt stick but I don't think it will hold.

Topps are supposedly sending me another after I sent a photo to them.

Anyone else had a problem?

See that's the problem with the new cards. Match attax had a really awesome bumpy feeling to all cards apart from mirror foils. Ever since they got rid of the really cool rainbow fouls and replaced them with big standard mirror crud, the cards look worse, feel worse and maybe in this case, are less durable.

Well they certainly look like a trusted seller, hopefully this fault is unique and limited to a small number of cards
