"Are YOU interested in taking over"

Since the World Cup in 2010 when the site was created, has been through a lot of changes, grown its loyal base of supporters and fans, and made friends in the football sticker community. Our checklists are relied upon by many sticker fans, our reviews enjoyed by football memorabilia hunters and I regularly receive comments and feedback on how much the site is appreicated and relied-upon by collectors and sticker fans around the world.

Unfortunately these days I'm not able to dedicate as much of my time to as I'd like. With a new young family around, time just hasn't been there to expand the album reviews, update the checklist sheets and develop the features on the site. I'm looking to step away from the maintenance of the website now, but given how much is used by the community I'm hoping to be able to pass it along to someone else to run. If you'd be interested in buying the site, leading it forward and developing it, please do get in touch.

"Premier League Stickers 2016 - Merlin engine purring"

Merlin back doing what it does best. I say Merlin, it is of course just a Topps album with a Merlin logo in the title. Either way, Topps seem to be making more of an effort with them since adding the Merlin brand back into the mix. It seems they want to keep the Merlin engine running as well as it did back in the glory days. And why not, we say. Check out the album review and get your copy of the checklist PDF here. As usual, we'd love your feedback and comments to drop us an email at

"Champions League 2016 seems to have a different logo to usual...?"

Topps are quite the cheeky monkeys it would appear, having taken the rights to the 2016 Champions League album away from Panini this year. Perhaps they've done a straight swap for the England 2016 album that Topps would normally have done? Or perhaps Panini have made UEFA, and the FA very cross for some reason?! Either way, the album review and checklist are available here,and we would love to hear your theories on what's going on!

"The Italians Get England! The FA go for Panini in 2016"

In an unexpected change of approach, the English FA have awarded Panini the opportunity to run with the England team for Euro 2016. Licensing has been given to Panini over Topps/Merlin for the coming tournament in a 4-year deal. Take a look at our album page here, and let us know your feedback on the album

"Topps Go Back to Merlin for Premier League 2015"

The Merlin years really were the golden-years for our football sticker memories. Perhaps Topps are thinking the same as they brand this year's Premier League football sticker collection with the Merlin wizard once again. They've done more than revive the logo for posterity though, with the album having a completely different feel to previous iterations of this annual collection. Take a look here for our album review and checklist. And, as ever, let us know your feedback.

"World Cup 2014 Sticker album officially confirmed by Panini, plus guess the front cover!"

Panini announced on the 24th January 2014 that it has been given the official license by FIFA for the 2014 World Cup. Not a massive surprise as they've been producing them since 1970, but good to know, none-the-less. You can read the official Panini press release here Plus, has been able to reveal the front cover image for the Brazilian edition. It's almost as though we're psychic! We took a stab at guessing the design of the front cover back in October 2013, low and behold, we're practically spot on! Take a look for yourselves here at our World Cup page.

"All change! Next stop, domain change!"

In case you haven't noticed, is no more. Instead, you're now looking at! This change has been a long time coming and is largely why there's not been a lot of action on the site over the last few weeks, as far as our visitors can see at least.

The domain was changed because we had a lot of feedback from users looking for the "swapping section". I suppose the old domain name was a little mis-leading in that it implied that we actually swap stickers. So fair enough. Now however, there can be no confusuion! We are a wikipedia of football stickers! Plain and simple.

We think we've caught all the bugs, the gremlins, the Murphy's and their laws, but, if you spot an error please do let us know so that we can fix it. Otherwise, please enjoy the new site!

"Checklists... as far as the eye can see!"

Overhaul time again. This time our Checklists page has been tweaked. Instead of the old hap-hazard groupings, we've decided to make the page into a single table, with a checklist per line. The checklists are arranged in year order, grouped as 'Domestic', 'Champions League', 'Euro' and 'World Cup'. Hopefully our visitors will be able to find the checklist they're looking for now. Take a look at the Checklists page and tell us what you think.

"Capello Quits!"

England Manager Fabio Capello has quit after a row with the FA over former England Captain John Terry's position in the team. I sure hope he's not already written the introduction to the Topps England 2012 Euro 2012 Sticker Collection, else they'll have to get someone else in sharpish before they go to print.... Redknapp anyone?!
