This is the first Bundesliga Album with Panini participation, the earlier albums since late 50s were released by Bergmann and/or Americana. From 1980 until 2008/2009 panini distributed the Bundesliga albums.

Album size is nearly square so very different from today but also from these days cause begman and americana used to have sizes like nower FIFA 365 albums or usual WC album sizes.
First page is with the old map of (west) Germany showing where the stadiums are located.

Team pages are a little confused, it´s a mix of "in action" pictures and portraits.
Underneeth each player you have some stats but not in a table version but written in a sentence, with different contend. Some textes are just about where the player came from some are about his way to play and the "in action" pictures have a comment about an event or the move they are in caught on the sticker.

the last pages of the album belong to former UEFA Cup and CL tournaments.

my version contains a lot of writings about the tournaments and signatures of players.
I usually do not like any writings inside the ablbums but in this case, cause of age, I like it as it is.

Thanks @Danju

Great seeing the first Bundesliga album with Panini involvement.

I really like the map and both Football 79 (UK) and Europa 80 (Euros) had something similar.

It’s small things like this that make the real difference to collecting/completing albums.

I check eBay and there’s very little available for the 80s Fussball albums whereas there’s loads of UK albums from this time. I’m just wondering if it’s purely down to lower supply in the 80s or a difference in collecting habits?

I don't know anything about the sales numbers from that time but believe me collecting football stickers was a huge deal among youngsters in Germany to that time.
Maybe Germans tend to keep rather than sell these treasures from their childhood..
the 79' album indeed is very rare but from the 80's album on you can find them easily in all kind of shapes from nearly mint (tell me when you find one;)) to totally wrecked..

Beware that with the 80's album there were 36 shiny international club emblems which had no place in the album and therefore often were stuck to the last page or the backside of the cover or even on the front..:confused:
