I think looking at some of the captain and star signings cards Topps have let their quality control standards slip, never seen so many zinged corners. Lost count of the number i've chucked away. Very poor.

I am not expert at Match Attax at all, but I am very disappointed with its quality lately.
Probably most of their money goes to marketing instead of production, and we can not blame them... But Shoot Out cards and binders were far better in my opinion. (not an expert in cards).

I wouldnt say I have had so many Zinged corners, but
at the bottom of a few packet fresh cards they have had like a "bobble" almost as if a finger nail has pushed into it. Always in the same place

I didnt think they were that bad comparing them to other Match Attax sets in the past. I did have 2 damaged Joe Cole cards though!

The faults on the Joe Cole cards are deliberate actually, he's always injured so Topps thought they would deface his cards too to make them more realistic.
1428 different Everton cards... and counting

My star signing and captains cards haven't been too bad and the problem i have had has been with the MOTM cards as the bottom of the cards foil is rough and hasn't been cut as well as it could have been.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
