Whether you support clubs like RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, VfL Wolfsburg or Eintracht Frankfurt or a fan of a particular player, the Bundesliga community will have the opportunity to collect their favorite stars as well as their favorite moments from the 2020-21 season, all in one collection.”
Standard and Premium Packs of the Bundesliga 2020-2021 Season Celebration NFT Collection by Topps will be available for purchase via credit card on Tuesday, August 10th at 7pm CEST/ 1pm ET, with card rarities ranging from Common to Legendary.
