Merlin Premier League 99 Transfer Sticker Packet

The 1998/1999 season sees Merlin venturing into new territory, with an experiment into 'Transfer Update Stickers'. This is the first time it's tried in this format, with a separate transfers album that sits in the centre of the main Merlin Premier League 99 sticker collection, or simply a standalone album.

The album moves from August through to February, looking at the main news developments each month. There are four or five football stickers each time, some of which are shiny's, where Merlin feel particular praise is deserved by a player. Each month has a brief paragraph summary with an update to the league table. There is also a Player of the Month sticker, as well as Manager of the Month. The football stickers themselves are also accompanied by a few useful stats and figures on the player.

Premier League 1999 Transfer No5The centre of the sticker collection contains a double-spread feature, showing 'Stars of Today' on the left and 'Stars of Tomorrow' on the right. Four football stickers to each page, with a small bio on the player. This is where you'll find the slightly larger stickers.
