Thankfully we see a shiny version of the F.A. Premier League Badge and the F.A. Premier League Trophy, after the 2001 edition decided not to make them shinys! We love the shinys here at StickerSwapping! As Richard Scudamore, Chief Executive of The F.A. Premier League states in his foreword, the Merlin’s Official F.A. Premier League 2002 Sticker Collection is the very first ‘Autography Edition’. Each player sticker includes a silver signature scrawled across their chest, each club captain has the honour of having a gold signature.
No surprises in this edition – Arsenal are first club we see. The teams are each allocated 4 pages, the first page shows the club badge shiny, and team photo stickers, as well as a stack of stats and information about the club including historic performance in the league, last season’s goal scorers and a manager bio.
The following 3 pages each display 6 squad member football stickers, with each sticker space surrounded by details on the respective player. Shirt numbers are shown on top of the player’s career summary, and the previous season’s analysis. The player’s vital stats are directly below the sticker.
At the centre of the album ‘Merlin’s Skill Zone’ picks out 4 premier league stars for their skills, with a glitter sticker a-piece. Then each club is allocated a large sticker (some are shinys), with the club’s full fixture list and spaces to fill in each of the scores. The centre also contains stickers W1-W80 which are small square stickers for 4 players from each team. This is the ‘F.A. Premier League Super Stars’ section, and these stickers were to be found in packets of Walkers crisps.
Did you know...?
- Walkers Crisps issued some stickers in their crisp packets. These ones had a Walkers logo on the back.
