    how many of these would actually be about though in general boot sales? would be worth a crack if you go to a fair few i'd imagine though.

    My issue is just if you're getting into it you have to go price heavy straight away, there isnt really a small way to get into it & slowly build from what i'm seeing.

    Yeah. I was able to get portugal in a case break obsidian for 399 and that is 12 boxes. Now 4 boxes for same price pretty much. Crazy how the market has jumped big.

    Facebook has some groups you will find in Europe. Or Instagram. Search breaks and soccer in groups and look for ones based in europe.

    What was the follow up on this then? Did you have it graded? What’s it actually worth?

    Here is some of my personal collection pieces. Not as good as some I have seen from seasoned collectors in soccer, but not bad imo.

    if I had the money lying about i'd most likely get into this, but it just seems the packs are massively expensive & you need to be really lucky to get near that back,though I do love card collecting.

    Not necessarily pal can get into a break for anything between £10 upto £1000 easy but all these cards have value really once you know what u are doing it’s not hard to make profit if that’s all your in it for however it’s a brilliant and fun hobby I have just bought a patch impeccable Harvey Barnes of eBay because I like the player only cost me £9.75 which for my personal collection is great

    i'd have to look into it more & would most likely buy a few players personally before buying any packs as i'd want some of my favourite players before going big on it.

    do you know what the best way to search up on ebay for these cards are? any particular keyword? i see Panini, Topps etc combined with these 1 quid cards lol. had a few laying around from when i was younger and i'd like to start up my collection again and hand down in the future, so might be looking at buying some nice Spurs cards soon

    Can’t help but think that if i’d put all the time, effort and money I’ve spent in FUT over the past 10 years in to this sort of thing instead I’d be in a slightly better position than I find myself now 🤔

    Then again if I’d put it in to anything except FUT I’d most likely be in a better position to be honest!

    Know that feeling.

    if i was to do a collection i'd be mostly interested in United cards, also love autograph ones, but any of those 2 plus a few other players, unsure if it's worth it to start though :/

    @Keano @jpsblue sorry for the late reply depends what your after really good searches are

    Panini euro 2020 select

    @jpsblue go watch soccer breaks on YouTube bit of a slow guy to watch but he opened so many cards and knows everything about soccer card collectables he pulled a sick Eriksen Kane Ali triple auto numberd to 15 in impeccable this afternoon definitely a good way to introduce yourself to the hobby

    Nope. I have been grinding this hard though. New immaculate has kicked my butt for about 1200.

    If anyone is interested to get started. Right now is a great time to grab match attax chrome. At around 160 a box, it is cheaper than any other chrome product like champions league which is around 600 a box. Same format as other chrome boxes but autos are per case I beleive. The color parallels are there.

    Just seen this, and think it means $85 for a digital premium pack, people are actually buying then.

    Trading cards are alot of fun. I have a decent size pokemon collection and I make alot of money buying and selling vintage cards. Definitely my favorite hobby and a lucrative one aswell.
