As with previous versions of the Panini Football Sticker series, the opening page of the Panini Football 87 Sticker Album features winners of last season’s PFA and SPFA Player and Young Player of the Year, along with the Manager of the Year. Turning the page, Arsenal start the album.
The Division One clubs are arranged in the Panini Football 87 sticker album across two pages each. The shiny club badge is in the top left corner, then 8 squad member stickers are below, arranged in a slanting line up the page, the team photo sits in the bottom right of the first page. A further 6 squad stickers are on the facing page, each player sticker is accompanied by a brief player bio paragraph. An interesting addition to the Division One section in the Panini Football 87 sticker album are photographs and bios of historic club players, stretching back to the early part of the century and even before! The earliest we can spot is Aston Villa’s Howard Vaughton, who played inside left for the club in the 1887 FA Cup final.
At the centre of the 87 sticker collection is a ‘Liverpool at the Double’ feature, with shiny stickers of the Canon League Trophy and the FA Cup Trophy, along with shaped cut-out stickers of various action shots from throughout the 1986 season. The ‘Soccer Crazy’ double spread is cartoon backdrop with spaces to stick in cut-out shaped stickers to complete the picture, and turning the page, you arrive at a ‘Mexico Magic’ special double-spread, looking back at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
The first division section closes with a ‘Now and Then’ feature page, looking at old football strips, before the second division starts, with 6 teams to a page. The second division teams get a half-sticker for their badge shinys and a team photo sticker each. ‘Brits Abroad’ presents stickers of British players making the trip overseas, and then the Scottish Premier Division clubs round of the album with a page per club. The stickers here are split into halves for each player, with a shiny club badge and a team photo sticker too.
