Top Sports (UAE) - UEFA Champions League (2013-14)

UEFA Champions League
Top Sports
United Arab Emirates
Unknown number (400?)

Shivkumar Ram has sent in some scans of cards he purchased recently. They are available in the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain). Mario Balotelli features in Milan kit so that clearly dates this collection as 2013-14 being issued during the 2013-14 season. They are all high numbered cards and I was wondering whether they are issued regularly each season with the numbers following in sequence to build up a large collection. Two players appear twice in this list and it's possible others do too. I'd be interested to here from anyone who has further information about this collection.

  1. I have similar cards but mine are definitely from 2011-12 season due to the Man U kit

    1. Hi Roy,

      Are yours lower numbers, I think they might have been issued over a number of years.



Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
