2021-22 Topps Merlin Heritage 97 UEFA Checklist Preview
The design of the main set is inspired by the Merlin English Premier League 1996-97 sticker set. A few tweaks have been made to bring it into line with traditional trading card dimensions, but the overall look will bring a sense of familiarity to those who collected the original set a quarter of a century ago.
Just over 100 players are featured on the base design.
Additional themes include Legends and Graffiti.
Action and Captain cards are delivered on aluminum foil.
All parallels come with serial numbers. There are six levels in all: /99, /49, /25, /10, /5, and 1/1.
Autographs are available for 30 players – 17 current stars and 13 legends. These use a similar design to the base set with signatures appearing on stickers.
Ten pairs of Dual Autographs are also available.
Offered exclusively online on Topps’ UK website, the boxes sold out almost instantly.
