Topps - Afghan Premier League
Afghan Premier League
Last month Topps issued a set of football cards in Afghanistan. The newly minted Topps trading cards feature a player's basic statistics, like his weight, height, and dominant foot. In an Afghan twist, they also name the player's home province. They are sold in packs of five - there are 96 cards overall - and the country's soccer fans can buy them when they purchase tickets to Afghan Premier League matches. There are only 8 teams in the League, so that's just 12 cards per club.
The cards, which were unveiled this month, are meant to be affordable by Afghan standards, retailing for around 20 Afghanis, or about 22 pence in UK currency.
I don't have a complete checklist yet... anyone?
