This year's launch -- touted as the most comprehensive and engaging soccer trading card product ever in North America -- highlights a unique combination of current MLS stars and American soccer legends as well as Mexican National Team players. One of the most unique aspects of the set are its trading card backs, which feature analytical statistics never before seen in the industry made possible through a partnership between Topps and Bloomberg Sports.
"The growth of Major League Soccer as a League and soccer as a sport are unparalleled in North America over the last decade and we have developed a product that we know soccer fans of all levels will enjoy collecting,” said Zvee Geffen, Topps MLS Brand Manager. “The league and the game are both gaining tremendous momentum heading into this summer’s World Cup and this is a great opportunity to showcase everything that MLS has to offer. There is something here for everyone.”
The 2014 Topps® MLS Soccer set is available at retail outlets now and will be available at Sporting Style locations at Sporting Park later this season.
