2020-21 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Soccer Includes Some On-Card Autographs

Share:

2020-21 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Soccer has a lot of the same elements as the line has in the past. Bright colors and modern designs are what stand out first. But there is one significant change. For the first time in a Finest UEFA product, on-card autographs are in the mix.

Packaged as a pair of six-pack mini boxes, each hobby box has two autographs, four Refractors and a handful of additional inserts.

2020-21 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Soccer Checklist Overview

The base set has 110 total cards. The first 100 make up the shell set, covering top players from around the league.

Parallels come in a number of styles:

  • Refractors – 1:3 packs
  • Purple Refractors – /250
  • Blue Refractors – /150
  • Green Refractors – /99
  • Gold Refractors – /50
  • Orange Refractors – /25
  • Red Refractors – /5
  • Superfractors – 1/1

The final ten cards are Extended base. Basically, they’re short prints that are harder to pull from packs. These also have fewer parallels:

  • Aqua Refractors – /75
  • Gold Refractors – /50
  • Red Refractors – /5
  • Superfractors – 1/1

Autographs and Inserts

Finest Autographs offer a signature spin on base cards. This is where the vast majority of the product’s ink comes from. It’s important to note that while Topps is promising some on-card autographs, not all will be. (Images shown at this point are mock-ups and not final cards. Until the set releases, specific players with on-card and sticker signatures won’t be known.)

Like the base set, Refractors are plentiful, adding additional Wave patterns to some of the colors:

  • Blue Refractors – /150
  • Neon Green Refractors – /99
  • Neon Green Wave Refractors – /99
  • Gold Refractors – /50
  • Orange Refractors – /25
  • Orange Wave Refractors – /25
  • Red Refractors – /5
  • Red Wave Refractors – /5
  • Superfractors – 1/1

Select players from the Extended base cards also have autographs, although the only additional parallels for them are one-of-one Superfractors.

2020-21 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Soccer has some other inserts to chase as well. Prized Footballers is the most common, landing 1:3 packs. The checklist hones in on top stars.

Finest Footwork (1:6 packs) spotlights highlight-reel players with the best ball handling skills.

1997 Finest Masters (1:48 packs) borrow a design from one of the 1997 Finest Baseball subsets.

Each of these insert sets have Gold Refractor (/50), Red Refractors (/5) and Superfractor (1/1) parallels. Some cards have autographs with their own Superfractors (1/1).
