I found in the 09/10 series, Hannover has 2 Star Players with same card number 127 - Enke & Fromlowitz.
Anybody knows why?
Which one is more rare?

In the Binder insert card #127 is Enke.
Maybe they changed the card after he Commited Suicide.
I don't have Either of the cards though.

Terrible shame about Enke.
As the case with the Young lad from R&D.

Lilly is right. Robert Enke commited suicide and so he was replaced by the Starspieler Fromlowitz. Fromlowitz is rather rare but not THAT rare. Fromlowitz was available from boosters and can be ordered from Topps Germany. But out of respect for Robert Enke, I would never replace him in the binder. The day he died was one of the saddest days, if not the saddest, in German football.

There was an article in the Sunday Times a few months ago about a book being released taken from Enke's Diary's.
Is it out yet , Have you read it Alex?
Really tragic story Enke's suffured with Mental illness, and all sorts of things affected his wellbeing.
It must be really hard being a Keeper with the blame being put on you(Just look at Robert Green in the World Cup)
I remember the article saying he had a terrible spell in Turkey and i don't think he hardly got a game at Barcelona.
Obviously the death of his Daughter must've been terrible.
Very very sad.
Wouldn't mind reading the book if it comes out in english.

Are the Enke Starspeiler and the previous years Matchwinner hard to get?
As you said Alex no way would you replace the Enke Card in the Binder, just put the Fromlowitz at the back of the book.

Well, "professional" collectors would say that Robert Enke cards are very rare, but of course they are not rarer than other cards. The attention of people always rises when somebody dies and that's what happened with those cards as well. One should be able to get them. I don't have any available for trade now but will try my best.

The book you mentioned is of Ronald Reng and is at least not available in English on Amazon. The German hardcover was released in Oktober and I haven't read it yet. The title is "Robert Enke. Ein allzu kurzes Leben" (... a life too short) Ronald Reng is a close friend of the Enkes.

I'll send you a PM later today.

You're welcome. One doesn't have to know such things.
