“Dear Collectors, Minicards is proud to present another super album from “Figurine Panini”. If you have collected any of our previous series, you know already about the importance of finding friends to swap your doubles with, but if this is your first “Figurine Panini” album then remember to be on the look-out for other collectors, because swapping is good fun and can fill quite a few of those empty spaces quickly and economically.

Remember that when your album is nearly full and you have swapped as many of your doubles as you can then the last few stickers can be ordered directly from us.

Enjoy yourselves!

PS. Minicards Ltd distribute “Figurine Panini” albums and stickers throughout the UK and Eire, and make every possible  effort to ensure that most local newsagents stock them for you a long as they are in demand. Also, we guarantee that all the stickers in this collection are printed in equal quantities.”

Panini Football 81 Sticker PacketWith this album we’ve decided to show ‘A letter from the editor’ that sits on the inside back cover. It’s interesting as despite the Panini Football 81 Sticker Album being one of the very first football sticker collections to be widely distributed in the UK, presumably rumours are already abound that perhaps some stickers may be rarer than others - note the final comment from the editor to the left here!

The opening page of the Panini Football 81 sticker collection shows us the album contents – First Division, ‘The Cockney Cup’, Second Division, Third Division, Scottish Premier Division and Scottish First Division – and a ‘Players of the Year’ section, with two stickers for the 1980 PFA Players of the year from England and from Scotland. After introducing us to the players and their achievements, the album continues with the English First Division clubs.

Arsenal get things started, with the clubs laid out in this edition with a club gold badge at the top, alongside a two part team photo sticker. Below this is a column containing various club stats and information, including kit descriptions, and historic achievements and performances. Also on this first club page are stickers for the manager and the first 3 squad members, each sat atop a brief paragraph describing their career history and records. The facing page contains a further 9 squad members. The First Division section is closed off with ‘The Cockney Cup’, summarising the 1980 F.A. Cup Final, along with 2 two-part action stickers, 2 more photo stickers, and a four-part team photo of the cup winners after the game.

Panini Football 81 No.545The English Second and Third Divisions are presented with four clubs to a page, showing the badge shiny sticker and a two-part team photo, before moving on to the Scottish Premier Division. The Scottish Premier Division allocates a page to each team, with the squad stickers split into halves – two parts per sticker. This allowed Panini to squeeze 12 players on the page, along with the club badge, summary text for each player and a two part team photo sticker.

There’s only room for team photo stickers of the Scottish League First Division clubs, over the last two pages of the album.
