Topps UK no longer attend shows for reasons best known to themselves.

Had a great time at the Roadshow today. Topps got exactly what they wanted, thousands of young children at the event playing the games, taking part in the demonstrations and getting all the freebies.

Full report on this including photos will be on the blog when I get around to doing it.

What do you mean do it now. Big Grin

I stopped going to the Topps events when I noticed I was about 40 years older than everyone else there.

No show near me this time unfortunatly. Frown

I assume those Milton Keynes, Manchester and London shows tie in with school holidays as they are weekday shows.

I popped into the Manchester show today. It was extremely busy with kids playing Match Attax and swapping cards with each other. Anybody else remember when they actually traded trading cards?

That is the good thing about Match Attax, cheap packets and accessable to younger people and available in the local newsagents. It's not the same as main stream card collecting though. I would be interested to know if they were swapping any of the Star Wars trading cards? Topps UK (Merlin) have always done the sticker sets very well (I remember they used to have events to swap the Premier League stickers)and the Attax cards with a game as well as a nice card set seem to sell well.
