Topps Premier League SuperStars Sticker PacketThe Topps F.A. Premier League SuperStars football sticker album, from 1999 is another odd one. This is the first time Topps published a football sticker collection under their Topps name. Until this point, Topps had been publishing their albums using the trading name Merlin, which they'd been using for the 'Premier League' series that begun in 1994 with them being given the FA license ahead of Panini. We suspect this was just a test-bed for Topps, to see if the UK market would be open to Topps entering the market and whether they'd be able to switch across from the Merlin name. As it took another 10 years before Topps did this, we suspect it didn't work out quite as planned!

Topps Premier League SuperStars No.63The album differs from the usual Premier League collection in that it is much smaller, with only 114 stickers in the entire album! The opening page has an introduction and two football stickers, the first is the Player of the Year from 1998/99, and the second is the Golden Boot Winner. The rest of the album shows 5 stickers per football club - each of which are assigned a single page. There are 4 'superstars' from each club, as well as one sticker each showing a 'Star Player' or 'Star Signing'. Each football sticker also shows the player's positing, age and home country. The star player sticker additionally includes the number of appearances, goals and strike rate. Star signings stickers show the details of the transfer, such as amount and from where.

There is an 'International SuperStars' feature at the centre of the album, which have some of the SuperStars from leagues around the globe. These football stickers are glitter shiny stickers. Also included at the centre is a special 'Champions League Tracker' poster.
