It's only appropriate that the finest club competition in the world is available in 2018-19 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Soccer. The annual European tournament has seen an uptick in card coverage but the 2019 release offers the first showcasing the Finest stylings.
The UCL Hobby boxes utilize a format that includes one autograph per mini-box and two per master box.
2018-19 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Base
Carried over from the 2018 MLB set, the abstract base design in 2018-19 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Soccer adds several Refractor parallels. This includes base Refractors at 1:3 packs, plus Purple (#/250), Blue (#/150), Green (#/99), Gold (#/50), Orange (#/25), Red (#/5) and SuperFractor (1/1) editions.
In addition to the 100-card base set, there is an Extended Base Set covering those names not found in the main lineup. These have only Gold (#/50), Red (#/5) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels.
2018-19 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League Inserts
Global soccer stars are also treated to a variety of inserts in the 2018-19 Topps Finest UEFA Champions League checklist.
Finest Cornerstones identifies the player that helps anchor the team, while Standout Strikers centers on the prolific scorers.
The Finest Careers set is another choice but the 10-card selection is limited to just one player. Every card in the die-cut set showcases Lionel Messi from his UCL career.
Each insert also comes in Gold (#/50), Red (#/5) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels.
