With the 2011-12 soccer seasons getting closer to the final lap, anticipation is building for Euro 2012. Part of the ritual of each major tournament is the collecting of Panini sticker albums.

    I was actually super amazed that my local “Dollar Tree” here in New Jersey was carrying the Panini stickers and sticker books for World Cup 2010. My wife hit me with a sticker book for a stocking stuffer Christmas 2010, and I scrambled to get as many stickers as I could before Dollar Tree took them off the shelf. But I’m hoping that the Dollar Tree gets Euro 2012 stickers! Still weirds me out that they had them…
