Actually, back in 2010, there was an agreement among larger group of collectors to stick Henry uspide down, due to his hand goal in qualifications.I once saw a guy sticking all Holland players upside down in a world cup album due to the Germany - Dutch rivalry..
It's not really about people not knowing, they're not obliged to know everything, it's more of people don't WANT to know... Ok, it might not be that simple to find out about swiss version, but any human being has a brain, so use it at least to think "ok, something's wrong, you can't get those stickers in regular packets... Is it a fake? A different version from somewhere? It's better not to buy, I don't know the source for this"... But maybe I'm just too optimistic about mankind.I visit some French forums of Panini fans, and lots of people don't know that there is a special version for Switzerland, especially the parents who are collecting stickers only for their children; moreover, they can't speak nor read english. So they could buy this album as an impressive gift for the child because the seller is just a cheater.
Yeah, most people don't want to cheat, it's exactly like I wrote in the beginning of this post: they don't want to know more, just think right away they had lucky with some Panini mistake.I do not think he wants to cheat, he is just a fool.
Kids I talked to were surprised when I told them you must not stick Swiss version stickers in their German albums.
Last time my colleague's son was really frustrated when he noticed that the Swiss version stickers he bought on holidays had different colored frames.
So Panini is causing this trouble with their different versions..
I have only issues when mixing versions with clear differences, like international vs swiss.Now that we're talking about gluing swiss stickers in a regular hardcover version, I've got a question:
What would you think is someone glues Brazilian stickers in a Mexican/Italian hardcover album?
