Panini Football 97 Sticker PacketThe Panini PFA Football Sticker Album is an interesting album, from quite a unique period for Panini football sticker albums. As Merlin were still the sole holders of the Football Association license for the Premier League, Panini instead decided use an affiliation with the Professional Football Association to get themselves back in the game. And this is what they've done. Whilst Merlin produced the FA Premier League 97 album with details of the clubs and players, Panini produced the PFA Football 97 album looking at things purely from a player perspective. No mention is made of the premier league clubs, other than to note where each player plays. The album is arranged alphabetically by player surnames, and there is no grouping by club at all.

The Panini Football 97 sticker album is one of the shiniest albums we've seen here at, and we are big fans! The front and back covers are made of a shiny plastic material, rather than the usual cardboard. So shiny was the cover, that we had great difficulties with scanners and cameras getting a decent image to use online! Just to reinforce how shiny they are, the inside of the front and back cover are a whole side of silvery shiny goodness.

After the opening page introduction from Gordon Taylor of the PFA, the football sticker album kicks off with the A's, and  Tony Adams. Each page fits two players, on at the top and one below, with a single large football sticker for each - showing every player wearing a generic white sports top, so as not to breach permissions by showing them in club kits. Alongside each player is a large amount of supporting information and trivia, including a quote from each player.

Did you know...?

  • All of the Premier League players in featured in the Panini Football 97 football sticker album are shown wearing a plain white sports top - this is because only Merlin had the license to show the players in their club kits.
