2020-21 Topps Inception UEFA Champions League Checklist and Details


As a brand, Inception has been around for a while, first with football and more recently with baseball (as well as some UFC inserts). Now it’s making the jump to soccer. 2020-21 Topps Inception UEFA Champions League brings the bold designs and autograph focus that define the line.

But there is a twist. It was an online exclusive through Topps’ European website — that sold out very quickly.

Boxes come with one pack of seven cards. Of those, one is an autograph and another is a parallel.

2020-21 Topps Inception UEFA Checklist Overview

Like Inception sets in other sports, it’s the designs that immediately stand out. Colors and abstract backgrounds combine for something that’s different from almost everything else out there. It’s certainly a big change from the plentiful chromium releases that dominate soccer cards right now.

The base set has 70 total cards. Most fall under one of two themes, Emerging Stars and Star Quality. Other smaller subsets include Cloud 9, The Perfect 10, Magnificent 7, Succession and Legacy.

Parallels come in six level numbered to either 99, 49, 25, 10, 5 or 1.

The core lineup of Autographs has 35 signers including Jude Bellingham, Erling Haaland, Alphonso Davies and Robert Lewandowski. Not only do these have a similar design as the base set but parallel levels as well.

The 2020-21 Topps Inception UEFA checklist also has Short Print Autographs, a pair of Dual Autographs and a Lionel Messi Patch Autograph.
