Panini’s Football 80 Sticker Album is opened in a rather unusual manner considering their football sticker albums of the past – England Team Manager, Ron Greenwood writes a rather long introduction (the best bits have been included on the left), in which he speaks of his plans for the England team at the next European Championships and the following World Cup, and changes he’d like made the league structure in England.
Turning the page, the Panini Football 80 Sticker Album jumps straight into the action with the first of the English League One teams. A very simple and consistent layout is used in the 80 album, each team’s page comprises of a double-spread, with shiny badge and team photo stickers to the top left, sandwiching some basic information on the team. The squad player stickers are laid out in rows of three, two of which are presented on the first page, and the remaining 3 rows on the second page, giving 15 stickers in total – 14 players and the manager sticker. Below each is a brief bio paragraph discussing the player’s career and history.
As you reach just over half the way through the album, the focus diverts to the Second Division. There is a single page showing the fixtures in a matrix, with the opportunity to fill in the scores, whilst the facing page consists of shiny half-stickers of each team’s badge. The teams themselves are then arranged in stickers of pairs of players, with 6 stickers to a team, and two teams to a page. The same layout is duplicated for the Scottish Premier Division to finish off the album.
Did you know...?
- The front cover design on the 1980 Panini Football album set the trend for the 'Panini Football' series, all the way through to 1988. All that changed during this period was the background colours and player photographs. The overaly layout remained largely unchanged for 8 years!
