Early Preview: 2013-14 Topps Premier Gold Soccer

In December Topps will be bringing us football from across the pond, which would be soccer to us kooky Americans. The high-end 2013-2014 Topps Premier Gold Soccer, which promises a hit per pack, will contain ten packs and you will pull 5 autographs and 5 relic cards.
The base set has a 100-card checklist with 19 of the 20 English Premier League teams being represented; poor Norwich City was left to pout alone. Each base card will have 5 parallels; Green (#/99), Orange (#/11), Platinum (1/1), Premier Gold (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1).
There will be five insert sets with each insert card having five parallels (the same set up as the base card inserts). The inserts will be: Future Stars (Young footballers), Hot Shots (Top scorers), Midfield Maestros (Top midfielders), Shot-Stoppers (Top goalies) and Tough Tacklers (Top defenders).

There will be a couple of different autograph sets, essentially sub sets, which will all have five parallels. Memorabilia sets will be broken up with Single Relics, Jumbo Relics (#/99), Dual Relics (#/49), Triple Relics (#/20) and Quad Relics (#/11). The Single, Jumbo and Dual relics will have three parallels; Orange (#/11), Gold (#/5) and Platinum (1/1).
Some of the players who are confirmed to be on either the autograph or relic checklist are Pele, Tim Howard and Cristiano Ronaldo.
