Sean's Stories

Despite completing the sticker albums for both World Cup 2014 and Euro 2016, I swore blindly that I would NEVER do the same for this year’s tournament. How wrong I was. After kindly being gifted an album and no less than 100 packets to fill it with, I thought it would be rude not to go the full hog and make it 3 out of 3 and spend even more money on grossly overpriced sticky bits of paper.

Thinking 300 stickers would be enough to complete this year’s offering, I spent over £100 on two further boxes. It took ages to peel and meticulously place the sticker into the album, using all the care and precision of a brain surgeon.

This process seemed to take forever. At the end of the task, I had a huge pile of swapsies (duplicate stickers) and an incomplete album. In fact, from 300 stickers, I only managed to finish two teams – Brazil and England!

It wasn’t quite as bad as it sounds. I was only 83 stickers short of completing the album. It is possible to order up to 50 stickers of your choice, direct from the manufacturer, Panini, I ordered 50 and kindly asked Claire to request the remaining 33.

The remaining stickers arrived surprisingly promptly, and according to the tracking details, went on an interesting journey, visiting all the glamorous locations across Europe – Bologna, Leipzing and… Swindon.
