In the build-up to the 1998 World Cup held in France, a company named Merlin launched the Official England 1998 World Cup sticker collection. The quality of the stickers was equal to that of Panini, and Merlin issued quite a lot of other football related stickers during their time.
In this particular collection, I’ve selected ten different stickers to share (click the image for a larger version of it). The England crest in the top right is one of those shiny stickers, so the quality looks better in person than what the scanner captured. But as you can see in the other nine stickers, England’s footballers are captured in their glory, playing for their national team.
For a bit of fun, let’s see who can be the first person to name all nine players. Post your guesses in the comments section below!
This is the last edition of collectibles I’ll be sharing for a while. I’ve gotten to the bottom of the box that I found in my garage, while cleaning. Hopefully I’ll find some more boxes in the future and, if so, will definitely share the treasures I find.
