80p per pack this time round. Can't justify a 60% increase.

Nothing beats the world cup coins I collected from Esso garages in 1970 (or was it '74?).

1970 - although I'm too young to remember.

Didn't they also do the coins for a tournament in the 90's? Possibly Euro 96.

Palace players are pretty thin on the ground in this year's edition to put it mildly. Only Luka Milivojevic and Lee Chung-Yong make the cut.

You would have thought that at least one of Benteke, Cabaye, Sakho, Townsend or Souare (pushing it) might have been in with a shout but none have been deemed good enough. If we're having to resort to barell-scraping then Jedinak, Fonte & Moses are the only ex-players that I can see.

We've still got a full set. Too many Brian Labone doubles though.

If anyone gets news of a better quality album than the standard freebie one, then do let me know where to get it from. Think the odd country abroad has these albums with thicker pages.

Did the last one 4 years ago with my son, and you get halfway through having spent a fortune and the book is already absolutely battered, you then carry on spending a fortune to finish the thing even though it resembles a Christmas edition of Radio Times by the end!

Seen on ebay that an album with a complete set of stickers is around the £149 mark.

There are 682 stickers which would be 16p each if a pack of 5 costs 80p

So even if you got zero swaps (impossible) the face value of a complete set is £110

Sounds incredibly unromantic to just go out and buy the whole lot as a complete lot, to be honest there is no point, but on the law of averages, if you buy a few packs down the local shop every few days, it takes months and will cost more like £200 over time even with a bit of swapping.

I think Panini have got a bit too greedy with this, it's bordering being an adult thing to complete it now can't see many kids being so lucky

Panini Football 84 was my first sticker collection. I'm almost certain it was 10p a pack for six stickers. it was possible to do it on your pocket money in those days.

They've hiked the prices up to 80p for a pack of 5 which works out at 16p a sticker. There's 681 to collect so if you were the luckiest collector alive and never got a duplicate, it would cost £108.96.

Anyway, the swapping of duplicates with friends is most of the fun of it or at least it used to be. Now I imagine there's an app that charges PayPal to print out your missing ones or some such bollocks.

I think this is very short sighted pricing.

Keep it reasonably affordable and people will continue to collect the stickers/cards for many tournaments. They’ll enjoy the satisfaction of completing their album and they’ll want to repeat that and continue their collection.

But if their experience is poor (stickers too expensive, too many repeat cards, too hard to find the hardest few players), they’ll have a negative memory of this and next time they’ll decide not to bother.

A mathematician at Cardiff University has calculated that completing this year’s Panini World Cup sticker book will cost around £774 on the basis you have to buy loads of packets to get missing players & don't indulge in any swaps etc.
