APBA Soccer Cards – What’s In the Box?
1 Comment

Posted by Paul Dylan on October 14, 2014 | Short Link

The following is a video of me opening a box from APBA Games.  In the box is a couple of APBA Soccer sets (2013 MLS and 2013-14 EPL).

You get to see a Clint Dempsey Seattle Sounders card (he’s rated A for Corner Kicks!), and a Luis Suarez Liverpool card.

Since filming this I’ve had the opportunity to look over both sets a little and I am now even more excited to get started playing games with them. Look for specifics on how some players are carded in a future post.

Another Update on the Fall Issue

I received five or six emails today, all essentially asking the same thing:

Hi Paul-

I wanted to check with you because I have not yet received my copy of the magazine/newsletter. I did get the electronic version, but no hard copy. Do I need to pay extra for that? I paid $9 for the issue. If it’s on the way and just hasn’t gotten here yet, that’s fine, too. Just let me know either way. Thanks!

Here is the answer:

Unfortunately, there have been delays at the printer and none of the print copies have gone in the mail to anybody yet. I’m really sorry about the delay, it’s unfortunate and very disappointing. I received a THIRD batch of copies on Wednesday that were printed incorrectly for a third time. Each time they fix one thing, they mess up another.

I expected a batch today, but it wasn’t done. It looks like I won’t have any correctly printed copies until Monday at the earliest.

Again, I apologize for the delay. I’m very sorry.

It Must Be October

All PDF files purchased through about 9am PST 10/2/14 should have been emailed already. If you have ordered a copy of this issue and you didn’t receive your PDF file of the Fall issue, please let me know at paul@oneforfive.com.

I hope everyone enjoys reading the issue as much as I enjoyed putting it together. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on this and future issues.

Thanks!

Paul
