The Skybox Metal Universe
Champions features a host of national and international hopefuls and young stars from a variety of sports. There are also some sports legends, media personalities and musicians.

The basic set consists of 100 regular cards - each featuring a unique background design provided by the team who created the original Metal Universe 1997-98 set - and 50 high-series All-Millennium cards (a new name and design for the high-series sub-series).

The parallel card range is deep and full of hunting cards, including the coveted Silver Auto, Gold Auto (low-numbered) and Precious Metal Gems (PMG): Red (#'d up to 100), Blue (#'d up to 50), Green (#'d up to 10) and Gold (#'d 1-de-1). In addition, there are two new Light FX parallels: Pink FX (#'d to 75) and Orange FX (#'d to 25).

The 2023 edition features a wide variety of intriguing inserts, including several new additions:
