The Super Players '96 album is another from what we here at FootballStickipedia.com tend to think of as Panini's 'dark days', when it comes to English domestic leagues. As Merlin ran away with its Premier League Sticker Album success, Panini struggled to find a workable formula from the crumbs that were left. Turning again to the Professional Footballers Association to provide a big name affiliation for the album, the Super Players '96 football sticker collection focuses solely on the players in the top league.
The first page shows a foreword from PFA Chief Exec, Gordon Taylor who emphasises that the focus is on the players and not 'the league' which was firmly in Merlin's grasp by this time. There is a two-part sticker here of the PFA logo, which fills a good portion of the page as this particular album has larger than normal sticker dimensions. The album then moves through the teams in the top flight (without a reference to what the top flight actually is), from A to Z. Each team gets 3 pages, 4 football stickers on page 1 along with the honours list and contact details, page 2 shows 6 players football stickers with a further 4 on the last page along with a goal scorers chart and the club 'Super Sticker'.
Each football sticker shows a fairly substantial biography for that player, as well as statistics over the last few seasons. Sandwiched in the centre of the Panini Super Players '96 PFA Sticker Collection is 'The 1995 PFA Awards' feature, with football stickers of the winners and nominees.

- Super Players '96 is Panini's first attempt at publishing a top league domestic football sticker album, without the support of the FA (having lost the licence to Merlin for the new Premier League format).
