Review | Topps Match Attax Extra

Match Attax

Jacob is football MAD. Come rain or shine, he is always kicking a football around, and when he isn’t playing he is either watching it or talking about it. 

He has been a fan of the Topps Match Attax cards for a while too, and has been trying to collect the whole Manchester United team. Recently he was sent a huge collection of Match Attax Extra 2016/17 products, including a binder, a whole load of Match Attax Extra cards and collectors tins.

The new Match Attax Extra collection includes new signings, updates cards and so called ‘magic moments’ from the 2016/17 Premier League. Jacob and Gemma have enjoyed sorting through the cards, putting them into team collections and filing them in the binder, following the ‘team guide’ on the first page insert that comes with the ring binder. There is extra excitement when they come across a special edition gold or silver card!

The collectors tins are a great way to store these special edition cards, or for keeping doubles in. Jacob has been taking his doubles to school and swapping them with his friends, which gives everyone a better chance of completing their collections. 

As well as being a trading card game, Match Attax Extra is also a game for 2 players. I will go into more detail on this in another post, but it works in a similar way to Top Trumps, with defence/attack ratings being compared to determine whether your player would score a goal or not. There are tactic cards too, which can be used to change the game up a little.

If you have a football fan in the house, then I am sure will love the Match Attax Extra 2016/17 collection – it offers a great way to get their football fix when the weather is too awful for kicking a ball around, or when you just need a break from the sidelines!

    I remember my boys being crazy about these the last time round. Endlessly collecting and trading cards. How exciting they are making a comeback #TriedTested

    I used to love collecting stickers when I was younger. It’s great that these have proper themed boxes that you can keep your ‘swappsies’ in!

    I collected these last year but will have to get going with my collection this time. They look really good, I love trading card with my friends and really like any collections that have special edition versions too- it makes it so much more exciting to see if you have got a rare one! #TriedTested
