Topps - Topps NOW Bundesliga (2018-19) - The Road To Kick Off

Topps NOW Bundesliga - The Road To Kick Off
15 cards per team

Topps NOW moves into Germany's Bundesliga for the 2018-19. The first cards should start appearing on 27 August, 2018. In the meantime Topps have kicked off this new venture with 15-card team sets featuring exclusive photography from team training sessions and behind the scenes. Not all the images have been confirmed yet so some cards are listed as TBD (To Be Determined). Each team set costs $29.99 and more information can be found here - Topps NOW Bundesliga.
UPDATE (04-08-2018 09:29):  The set that I originally had listed as Borussia Mönchengladbach is actually an 18 card set of Bundesliga's Best. I was in too much of a hurry last night and didn't notice that the players were from different clubs. Thanks to Markus and Henry Mehring for letting me know.
UPDATE (09-08-2018 08:41):  These cards are also available on the German Topps site Topps Direkt. The series is being driven from the United States (3 of the 7 images provided are of American players) so the information on the backs of the cards is in English. I have replaced the original photos with better images and added some card numbers to the checklist.

  1. The list with Borussia Mönchengladbach players here are actually Bundesliga's Best and contains players from different clubs.

    1. Hi Markus,

      Thanks for letting me know, I was in too much of a hurry and just looked at the card they showed.


  2. Topps are really scraping the bottom of the barrel now. What next, players at home or out for the evening? Please, please don't let them do this to the Premier League cards. Match Attax Now hardly fills me with a warm glow either.


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