World Championship Limited Editions

Everyone who competes gets a 'Bronze' regional heats Limited Edition Card (Maximum issued worldwide 4096 Cards)
Everyone who gets to play in the Regional afternoon finals gets a 'Silver' regional heats Limited Edition Card (Maximum issued worldwide 256 Cards)
The winners of the Regional Finals get a special regional winners Limited Edition Card (Maximum issued worldwide 16 Cards)

Expect to see the Silver cards exchanging s hands for quite a lot of money & the regional winners will surely command hundreds of pounds if they ever go for sale.

 

David Dunn Limited Edition

Topps have now stated that the David Dunn Limited Edition card WILL NOT be released as part of the 'Extra' set of cards.

The only David Dunn Limited Edition cards released and will ever be in circulation are those mistakenly given away as part of the Sunday Mirror Jermaine Jenas promotion on the 12th October. Topps have not indicated the amount of cards in circulation but state it was very few!

This card is not officially recognised as part of the match Attax collection (like the sneek peak trophy cards).

 

Ryan Giggs Limited Edition

Topps have confirmed that there are Ryan Giggs cards in circulation and that they are genuine Topps issued. Like the David Dunn Limited editions they were released in error.

This card is not officially recognised as part of the match Attax collection (like the sneek peak trophy cards).

Comment

Should be noted that not all boxes of retail store promotions will definately contain a Limited card.

Many other Limited Editions (Geovanni, Lampard, Giggs etc) were rumoured to be released but this has proved not to be the case.

A Giggs LE card has sold on Ebay for £37 but it is rumoured to be a fake (looked OK to me though!).

Highest confirmed price paid for a Limited Edition is £299 for a David Dunn Limited Edition!
