I do not believe that Football Champions really produced a Zidane card. And not just card, cards. Supposedly there are two of them. I've luckily came across a box of French Pour Le Titre a few years back and busted it hoping I'd get Zizou. No luck. Speaking of no luck, I waited awhile to purchase a bunch of French Base cards from one of the French sites and now they are all gone.

Constantly searching all Ebay sites for Zidane over the last 3 years hasn't helped the cause. I don't expect to ever find Zidane. In fact, I don't even know what either card looks like.

If you happen to read this blog, or come across it somehow, please post a photo of the card. It could be 10 years from now if you come across this, still post the photo or email me. I'd appreciate it.

Until then, Zidane's card(s) do not exist to me.

The above picture is of the lovely country Italy. One day I hope to travel to your beautiful country and catch plenty of Football in Turin, Florence, Milan (NOT INTER), and Rome. That and purchase EVERY FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS CARD I FIND. While this little map pictured above is pretty outdated (Eastern Europe) that is not the matter at hand. My issue is with of course their exports. Let's start with what Italy is known for.

Italy is famous for .pizza, wine, fashion, chapels and the Vatican, and last but not least Football Champions.

All of those items have been greatly exported and shared throughout the world, except for Football Champions. Look, I know America isn't a soccer nation. Trying to collect a card game that has been dead for nearly 5 years is a bit maddening. However, when Ebay Italy has plenty of sellers who offering good products it is nice to see. BUT, none of them want to ship internationally. It is so frustrating to see all these cards I'd love to have but not be able to purchase them due to ONLY SHIPPING WITHIN YOUR STUPID BOOT SHAPED COUNTRY. Seriously, is it really that hard to charge 10-20 Euros for International Shipping???

All I want is to get the complete YOGA Italy National Team Set, BOTH Del Piero Adidas Promos, and the Juventus Ibrahimovic. Come on Italy, help a guy out.
