Let's have a look shall we !! Let's start with 2013 Topps !
To be honest, I do not know a lot of the players that play in the MLS. The ones I do know are former soccer stars from Europe on the decline, spending a few last years in the US to make some money. I pulled two of those, Landon Donovan and one of the largest superstarts of the Premier League in the last 2 decades, Thierry Henry.
The box also included a "hit", a cool Cooper auto card.....oke oke, I admit, never heard of the guy...I did see Robbie Keane play when he was at the Spurs, great player, cool card !!
Lastly, one of the Topps inserts, I like these and would love to pay a visit to the NY Red Bulls at some stage in the future.
Now let's move to Upper Deck ! Again with some ex-Premier League players, Henry in action and another cool Robbie Keane card !
One of the Dutch players, or I must admit a fairly mediocre player from Holland, who played well for one or two years and, I assume, got his MLS contract that way. Tim Howard was also there, another ex-Premier League player.
Let's end the Upper Deck overview with a "hit" as well. A relic card from Alejandro Morena, another player I have never heard of.....
So who do we like best when it comes to Soccer, Upper Deck or Topps ? Personally I don't like the Topps base card and think Upper Deck did a better job. However, when it comes to the inserts I really like the Robbie Keane insert by Topps. So all in all, I would lean towards Upper Deck in this case.
What do you guys think ? and anyone collection soccer cards ? I have plenty to trade now !
