Topps NOW cards, only available for 24 hours, have started issuing Premier League cards - Vincent Janssen and Romelu Lukaku are the first two cards. New cards will appear each week, though they don't make it easy for collectors in the UK to get their hands on them.

Hi Alan
The link just takes me to a generic Topps page rather than specific to this collection. Is this possibly because the ordering period is now closed for last weeks?

Not particularly delighted about this new collection, as it's pretty much a 'blink and you miss it' thing - was checking daily for the Panini Instant ones during Euro 2016 and luckily there was only one Palace player (which is what I collect) - Cabaye, and I was able to get it in time. Even so, it was far from instant, as despite paying about 30 for postage it took nearly a month to arrive grrr!

I know that the Premier League is something of a 'global' league, so in some respects I expect them to feature in the main the biggest 'star' players from the 'famous' clubs, they don't make it easy for us over here.

This will now become my weekly Monday morning ritual - check to make sure no Palace cards have been made!

Me too Dorking, but I'm not expecting any Burnley cards to be honest. If Heaton didn't get chosen after his performance against United at weekend, then I am not holding out much hope for any other Burnley players!

Hi bibster
During Euro16, I think 4 times out of 6 games, the Wales card was Bale. These companies cannot resist choosing the most 'sellable' players.

And I totally understand that they will use the most sellable players. I got the Panini Bale cards in the summer and I'm sure they were very popular. It just sucks a bit when you support a less fashionable team I suppose, when it comes to collecting cards!

Not sure Janssen for Spurs was a good choice. Big team, not so famous player.

It will be interesting to see how they pick the players each week. Have you seen the postage cost to the UK? :rofl

Not yet. Struggling to find the page to be honest. I think this might be it

https://www.topps.com/collectibles/trad ... -now.html/

but currently empty as nothing live at the moment

Know what you mean about 'smaller clubs' - its been the story of my collecting life, but then again, the Premier Gold collection is fantastic, and supporting an collecting Palace or Burnley you have a very decent chance of hovering up almost everything you want at 'reasonable' prices (whatever they are) compare to Arsenal or Man Utd prices anyway

Yes, that is the correct link, cards are only there for 24 hours.

I think the first ones appeared about 5.30pm (not quite sure) but the MLS cards don't appear until 8pm our time.
