“ If I was a football fan, this would be my team... for a hopefully obvious reason! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow, had no idea Topps did UK sets for football, too. I'm guessing these are 'mini' sized like their baseball counterparts. The addition of the team logo on the front is a nice touch -- and something the regular American base cards lacked. This would technically be Jimbo's rookie, if not for the USFL issues. Go Bills! ” -mkaz80

“ I think these are hard to find. Cool RC of HOFer Jim Kelly. ” -carthage44

“ I never knew there was a UK version of this set. This is my second all-time favorite card (the American Topps version) and it is my all-time favorite player in any sport. Let's go Buffalo! There aren't many people you will find more tough or more backed by their city. Jim Kelly pretty much IS Buffalo. The man is always around and will give EVERYONE the time of day if they ask. A legend, a true HOFer, and the best RCOTD since I joined the site! ” -muskie027

“ Not a bad card at all...I really like the colorful back. I do wonder how longer team names would have fit in the pennant at the top, but I know a good website I can go to and check that out! ” -kents_stuff

“ UM OK Topps American/UK? Talking football? Was this a set that was part of a "talking football" game? For sets like this it would be nice if there were a part of the database for set descriptions to tell how the sets were distributed if different from the traditional packs in boxes sets. ” -captkirk42

“ Would have loved to see this guy get a SB ring. Will go down as the best QB the Bills have ever had... ” -rmitchell6700

“ Never understood why the UK cards were nicer than the US ones ” -SFC Temple

“ I like it! ” -nubala

“ Topps American/UK? Which is it? I am completely unfamiliar with this set. Nice looking card, regardless. ” -switzr1

These are so much better with the logo on front.
