I think I know which sig I'd rather have.
Legend #208
Glory #210.

The concept of Glory wasn't bad, just some of the designs were a let down.

Green Foil very rarely works well. If the Graham above had been Gold/Silver Foil or even using a reflective foil then it would be a stunning card.

Case cards.

I read somewhere that they were in a later batch of stock as it was a late decision to use them as CC. I think they will start to show soon.
I had heard the League Leaders only made it into the Newsagent Stock and as the News Agents rarely buy cases and are broken down to boxes then it will mean some unscrupulous person in the middle will have them all to sell at inflated prices......

Surely that couldn't be right?

Are retirements box hits?
Retirements are one in every 72 packs or every second box, so one of the box hits for sure.

On another note.
I dropped in to pick up the newspapers after work this morning and of course enquired about Traders, as I'd bought 10 packs from the same place earlier in the week.
There was nothing displayed and the lady had them stored under the counter and would only sell me three packs. Limit of three per customer!
Never thought I'd see the day.

Yep, it is the same in most places. Wait until Elite, it will not be in Newsagents at all.

What the heck? Do they think we’re gonna have scuffles trying to panic buy bloody traders or what? Most of us ain’t that stupid. Key word = MOST
