The 1970 World Cup sticker album is the first ever collection to be produced by Panini, it is a far stretch from the style and presentation of the albums we've become used to in the modern era - this album is where it all began! The first thing you notice when looking at the Panini Mexico 70 World Cup Sticker Album is the size; it is virtually square, being only a few centimetres taller than it is wide. This is consistent with the first of the Panini Football League albums (Football 78, 79 and 80), which were also a more square shape.
Looking inside the cover we see the first page shows 5 individual stickers (1 whole and 4 halves), the Rimet Cup, Mexico Mascot, FIFA Logo, and two Mexico 70 Logos. The page also shows the 'History of the Rimet Cup', along with the contents of the album. The following 8 pages of the Panini Mexico 70 World Cup Sticker Album shows the historic winners of each of finals. Each nation shows a team photograph sticker and a badge logo for the team. The bottom of the page shows 3 players stickers - a selection of the most influential or exciting players from that year's finals.
Over the page is the Tournament Programme, with spaces to fill in the scores. After that the national teams begin. Mexico are first as the hosts, each team gets a pair of half stickers, a flag and a football badge. In later albums these would normally appear as 'shiny' or 'foil' stickers. The other stickers appearing on the first page are the team photo and manager, the first 3 of 13 squad football stickers. A further 2 pages present the remaining 10 player football stickers, with a section below listing the vital statistics of each one.
Some of the smaller footballing nations only receive a single double-spread, with only 11 stickers.
