Topps - UEFA Champions League 2020/21 Best of the Best (03) - Checklist

UEFA Champions League 2020/21 Best of the Best
200 cards

The collection hasn't been released yet and I've been unable to find an official release date but I think it's time to start compiling a checklist with the information known so far. The headings of some sections include links to illustrated checklists.
UPDATE (23-01-2021 00:42):  Thanks to Mark Berryman for providing a photo of the checklist chart, allowing me to complete this checklist

  1. Was released today. My local Sainsbury’s had tins and packets

  2. Topps have now said there will be no binder exclusive via the website - so no binder for this collection

  3. As usual blamed it on Brexit / Covid

  4. How is everyone storing their cards as we have no binder for these

  5. Malaysia will be selling this series.

  6. I am a little disappointed by the Rookie selection. The autos seem weak as well considering they are so rare. What do you guys think?

    Thanks for the post though, I have been very interested in the collection! I also second the question on storage, let me know if you have any bright ideas!

  7. Picked up a multipack of these today. Has anyone else noticed that in the Golden Goalscorers set the player names on the reverse of some of the cards use lower case a's, e's and u's? This looks really strange as all the rest of the names on the front and back of the cards are all in capitals. I've noticed this on DIeGO COSTa, MOuSSa MaReGa and MaRCuS RaSHFORD. Strangely it's not the whole of that subset - as TIMO WERNER is fine, both e's in his surname are upper case.

    1. Hi Luke,

      Yes, that's a really strange thing to do. Lover case, but the same size as the capital letters.

  8. Searching for a binder? Maybe these is an option for you:

  9. would you happen to know the dimensions of these cards? I am planning on buying some and I always like to keep my cards in top loaders.

    1. I personally don't have any of these cards and Topps doesn't provide measurements. They are too big for normal top loaders and I don't know what sizes of top loaders exist.

  10. Hi, the BotB cards are 14cm by 8cm.
