#5: 2012 Topps U.S. Olympic Team #90 Alex Morgan Auto
While Morgan might be approaching the twilight of her illustrious career, her legacy as a cornerstone of the US Women’s Soccer program remains. She burst onto the senior national team in 2010, marking her debut with a goal against China in October of that year.

#4: 2021-22 Topps Chrome® UEFA UWCL Lauren James Auto RC
Last summer, James could only watch from the sidelines, likely with a cuppa in hand, as the Lionesses roared to a historic victory in the European Championships. Fast-forward a year, and she’s not just on the pitch but central to their master plan of global football domination. During the 2022-23 season, James didn’t just step onto the scene; she danced through it. At Chelsea, in the WSL, she was electric, making defenders look like they were chasing shadows and finishing with the aplomb of someone nicking the last biscuit from the tin. Entering the World Cup Final, the saucy 21-year-old was tied for England’s lead in goals (three).
#3: 2023 Topps Chrome® Barcelona Keira Walsh Auto-KW Orange X-Fractor RC /25
As the oil that keeps the English national team running smoothly, Walsh dominates the middle of the field, expertly winning possession and converting opponents’ blunders into goal opportunities. Her outstanding performance for Barcelona in the 2022-23 season has solidified her reputation as one of the top 10 players globally. Heading into the World Cup Finals against Spain, she spearheads an unbeaten English side. Spanish star Sergio Busquets once remarked, “Walsh is one of those players you might not notice if you just watch the game—but if you watch her, you truly understand the game.” For Walsh, the sky is the limit. And the 2023 Topps Chrome Barcelona Keira Walsh Auto-KW Orange X-Fractor RC /25 is a numbered rookie auto, a must-cop for the collection.
#2: 2022-23 UWCL TOPPS NOW® #5 Alexia Putelllas
When you hear mononymous names like Prince, Ronaldo, and Messi, you instantly recognize the greatness associated with them. Now, we can add Alexia to that list. The 2021-22 UEFA Women’s Player of the Year entered the 2023 World Cup, having won the Ballon d’Or twice consecutively. Despite not being fully fit owing to an ACL injury, Alexia continued to be the vital playmaker for Spain. She was the driving force behind La Roja’s 2-1 victory over Sweden in the semifinals. There’s been a growing consensus that Alexia might be the world’s best player, and this belief significantly increases the value of her cards. Investing in them would be a wise choice.
