Just seen this on Topps twitter feed:

“Less than a month to go now until the 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ Merlin's Premier League Sticker Collection is released!

You'll be able to get hold a packet of 1️⃣0️⃣ stickers for £1 from the 13th December!”

10 stickers for £1 eh? Cost is similar to their Champions Leagie packets........

Thanks for the info @Jamiepr74 !

I think the 10 stickers for £1 is a good idea and it makes it slightly cheaper, plus there's less packaging waste in theory.

I'll be collecting it the old fashioned way!

310 stickers...Ridiculous!

View attachment 11745
last 2 editions had 344 which already was low - so maybe no extra pages or only starting 11 players ..?:p
Thank God it is over soon - next year Panini surely will make some effort to produce an appropriate album for the best league in the world.

I am not surprised with the low effort though..typically Topps.:rolleyes:

I forgot to put " " around the self named best league in the world.
I can not judge which league is better.
I like the fast play style of the PL.
Watching not one of the top 5 teams can be quite entertaining or totally boring though - you'll never know.
On the other side I do not know how much fun it is to watch for example an Espanyol - Alaves game..
I tried to watch also other league games from Italy, France, Portugal, Scotland, Austria - mainly the outcome was not satisfying me
Some German Bundesliga games are also very hard to watch - two lower placed teams against eachother - nobody takin any risk..

As for me I can watch Espanyol-Alaves or Nürnberg-Düsseldorf, and I even watch sometimes 2.Bundesliga, Algerian League, Polish League, Russian...The best players are in Spain, but my favorite play style is...the Bundesliga. French League is absolutely shit...

To speak about the Topps PL album. I think that this album is so poor than the German album. Finally, the best one from Topps was for the Scottish League 2014 & 2015, very complete with the 4 professional divisions. Just incomprehensible

It’s as bad as Panini Footbsll 93......thankfully it’s Topps’ last!
That wasn’t a good one at all! Never keen on the big stickers.

Hopefully I’ll get some packets tomorrow to take a look and share some pictures.

It doesn’t sound like there are any limited edition stickers this year?

I am looking forward to Panini next! Please please cover all 4 leagues Panini!

Good Morning! I’ve just bought my starter pack at £4 this morning:

AA1757C8-73D8-4A84-8E22-B8D8631BF2AC.jpeg

It includes 30 free stickers which in turn makes the album just £1 which I think is great value.

The €6 price may be not so good!

Another poor job from Topps, thank god Panini will get it next time.

Only 10 players per team is ridiculous, and even then the choice of players is strange. My team Huddersfield has Adama Diakhaby included (only 2 league starts all season), whilst Jonathan Hogg is missing despite playing most of the games and also being captain in most of them. In fact both our normal captains, Tommy Smith and Hogg, are missing.

Only 310 stickers to collect with a mix of badges, players, team shots and kits. Here’s an example of a page... Leicester of course!

Sadly just 10 players to collect and strangely Ben Chilwell is omitted! He only plays every game for us, England U21 and now the main England team!
Great design -the drawing - th badge in the back - I will not stick over! - I did not expect that - good job by Topps, but WAIT only 10 Players - I thought it must be 11 to play football ..ahh..soccer ..shame on you Topps for disrespecting the game!

Packets are £1 each for 10 stickers which represents good value (slightly better for the environment too)

First one opened...

The stickers are pretty good tbh. Not enough of them to collect but better designed than last year’s in my mind.
