2020-21 Topps UEFA Champions League Museum Collection Soccer Checklist Overview
Before getting into the fancy stuff, there is a base set. It’s small, with just 75 cards. However, they carry the premium elements of the release with thick stock and a sleek look. With such a limited lineup, the checklist sticks with top stars and young players. Topps continues to use their new “RC” designation to help draw attention to UEFA rookies.
Parallels, which combine to land one per box, come in five levels:
- Copper – /99
- Sapphire – /75
- Gold – /50
- Ruby – /25
- Emerald – 1/1
Archival Autographs anchor the product’s signatures. All have serial numbers, including the base versions. Sapphire (/75), Gold (/50), Ruby (/25) and Emerald (1/1) versions also exist. There are also Archival Dual Autographs (/25) that have ink from two players.
Museum Autograph Relics provides some of the more straightforward signature memorabilia cards. Base versions have serial numbers along with their Sapphire (/75), Gold (/50), Ruby (/25) and Emerald (1/1) parallels.
Upping the ante in regards to swatch size are Museum Autograph Jumbo Relics, which have their own Gold (/50), Ruby (/25) and Emerald (1/1) versions.
From the early days of the Museum Collection line in baseball and football, Framed Autographs have been one of the brand’s distinct elements. They’re back with more UEFA standouts. In addition to numbered base versions, there are Ruby (/25) and Emerald (1/1) parallels. Framed Autograph Patch cards can also be found but they’re among the toughest cards in the product. All are one-of-ones.
New for 2020-21 Museum Collection UEFA are Lore of the League Autographs. Only the game’s biggest names are on the checklist here.
Kicking off the memorabilia cards in 2020-21 Topps UEFA Museum Collection are Meaningful Material Relics. Print runs for base versions vary from player to player. The same can be said for Momentous Material Jumbo Relics, which have a larger swatch. Both of these have Sapphire (/75), Gold (/50), Ruby (/25) and Emerald (1/1) parallels.
Momentous Material Prime Patch Relics (/10) have premium swatches.
Single-Player Triple Relics (/75) get their name for the three swatches that adorn the card. Regular parallels are available in the form of Ruby (/25) and Emerald (1/1). There are also autograph versions that have 35 copies each plus a one-of-one Emerald copy.
