Premier League Logo

There are action stickers of all your favourite Premier League stars, plus features on every club including Premier League newcomers Charlton, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest. We pick out the star men from last season and profile the players to watch during this campaign, so you are fully up to date with everything you need to know for the next season.

If you’ve been too busy watching the World Cup to keep an eye on the transfer news, we’ve rounded up all the latest signings at our Transfer Desk. We’re also proud to announce the results of the 2nd annual Merlin Collector’s Awards. Thanks to everyone who voted. The response was incredible and the results are very interesting. We have special super shiny stickers of all the winners so make sure you keep an eye out for them.

This year’s collection sees the introduction of our fabulous new Premier League player rating system. You will see Merlin’s Opta Index Points totals for each player throughout this collection. Turn to page 2 for the full low-down on this great new feature.
If you like this album, you’ll just love Merlin’s Official 1999 Premier League Annual. Turn to the back cover of this album to order your copy direct. Finally, to celebrate the start of the new season and to say “thank you” for sticking with us through the summer we’ve prepared as special offer to give you a FREE Merlin’s Premier League 99 Album, the sticker collection you have helped to make the World’s Greatest!”

Merlin Kick Off 98 Sticker PacketMerlin’s Premier League Kick Off Sticker Collection 1998 might be considered more a ‘feature’ album rather than the traditional squad list albums. It doesn’t contain entire teams of football stickers as in the annual premier league album, but it instead is a light-hearted sticker collection full of fun facts, interesting trivia and highlighted players and ones to watch.

Merlin Kick Off 98 No.180The album opens with an intro on the inside cover and the contents list, along with the features list. The first feature is ‘The Premier League’s Most Wanted’, before the club pages kick in. Each team gets only 8 or 9 stickers, with lots of information thrown in as well. The feel of this album is far more informal, with the sticker present usually as a player has ‘the most somethings’ or ‘the best record of whatsits’ etc. With lots of ‘Did you know?’ sections.

Other features in the album include the second annual ‘Merlin Collectors’ Awards’, ‘The Transfer Desk’ and a look ahead to the regular season 99 sticker album.
