From Panini yes, but other South American publishers already proposed it (official... or not...)

Very nice, well deserved I think... but why Mexico too?
I also think the same as you, I believe that the most important tournament in America at the club level already deserved to have its official collection and I hope that it will last for many years and that it does not go out after a couple of seasons.

Regarding Mexico, that country is a good market for Panini collections (football, movies, series and others) and they constantly have good sales there. I guess that's the main reason. I think Panini wants to ensure good sales with this collection. :)
Although if that is the reason, they should also try in some countries in Europe.

Is this firs time evere for Copa to be relased, or?
As far as I know, the first with a CONMEBOL license.

I got a mail advertising the album pre-sale! Here we have a sneakpeek on the teams page.

Here we have the start of the Pelé section alongside an intro page. And notice that sneaky Comnebol president sticker right on the lower left... Well, that´s actually a rare one; if Infantino decided to put himself as a sticker in a World Cup album, that would make some puzzled but you could bet that would be worth millions just by the fact officials stickers are rare to come by.

At least, Alejandro Rodriguez put himself as a normal player sticker instead of a puzzle set or a shiny.

This is worth collecting just for the PELE pages and Liverpool Uruguay. :D
Plus imagine how many rookies you will pull that will be worth thousands in few yers, the collection pays off by itself :rolleyes:
Jokes aside looks like a pretty good collection, really strange that big market like South America didn't have one yet for the biggest club competition.

Agree. CL is a big tournament but never got the recognition with Panini.
I can't wait to pull all them RC stickers that will eventually pay for my red customed Bugati. :D

Hey guys!

I took some photos for you from the Libertadores 2023 album. If you want more photos, you can ask me and I'll post them.

I found the players' faces printed in the place where we pasted the stickers interesting. I found this unusual. Does this exist in other collections?

The softcover album, the packet and our "box" - the pack with 20 packets wraped with plastic. This is our challange to complete an album because the same packs comes duplicated.

Thanks for the info Jose. There are a few eBay sellers from South America offering a full set of stickers for sale, either with a soft cover album or a hard cover. Most describe the album as having 557 stickers but I noticed at least one states there are 560 stickers in the album. Do you know if the number of stickers is the same in the albums published in Brazil and Argentina? Before I place an order - which will be expensive at about USD200 to UK - I would welcome any advice on any possible variations. Thanks

Hello, @chriswiggy

I sent your question to Panini in Argentina and they replied that there are 557 stickers, the same number as the collection launched in other countries. In several places there is this wrong information about the amount of stickers. The correct number is 557. I also entered the Panini Argentina app and the checklist marks 577 stickers.

To make it clearer, there are 544 stickers numbered from 1-544 (Badge, Players and Jersey), and 13 stickers numbered CL1-CL13 (these are the stickers from the beginning of the album - logo, cup, stickers from the last champion (Gabigol is a double sticker, Pedro), Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro (places that will ocurred the finals) and the stickers from the end of the album that are a tribute to Pelé).

The last page with the stickers of Pele.

From what I could research and thinking about the back of the album, there are the versions:

Peru: version with the flag of Ecuador and Peru and, it seems to me, released in the rest of South and Central America. There are references to Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay e Venezuela. In the album shows "Printed in Brazil".

The album has cover art in Spanish. And the packets are the same as in Brazil and Chile.

The box (with 50 packets) contains this information:

Chile: on the back is printed "Printed in Chile".

The album cover is in Spanish.

The packets are the same color as in Peru and Brazil.


Brazil: the cover is written in Portuguese, the packets are the same as in Chile and Peru, and there are some variations of the album.

The "normal" hardcover album.

Another version of the hardcover album.

Variation: a box to keep the album.

The packets (that we call "envelope"). In our market we don't have the box, but we have the 20 packets wrapd in plastic. It's our way to buy a lot of packets at once.

Argentina: the cover is written in Spanish and the packets have another color.
