* Dutch edition replacement sticker

To honour a tradition :), Panini made a confusion with a dutch player, Sjaak Troost, represented by Michel van de Korput. A replacement sticker was lately edited in Netherlands with the correct picture of Troost.

* Corriere dello Sport Stadio stickers back

Some stickers edited for Corriere dello Sport Stadio, an italian magazine, have a special back. It is said that you have to return 20 backs to receive a special Bingol card, a sort of scratching game to win prices.

Thanks for this @Makhno

This is perfect timing as I've been collecting this set before it becomes scarce. It's one of my favourite Euro albums from the past.

Why oh why did the England album have a rubbish cover! I really like the international cover with Bernie the mascot!

I didn't know about wrong dutch sticker! It's time to stop to only think about current albums (even is hard to follow all difference between Fifa365 or Euro/WC/Copa albums... and I don't care about different stickers or backs!) and start to try to find my missing "gems" from past :)

The picture of international back might be wrong.
there is a border saying "Gratis Album" same as with German free version.

this should be the right back.

The stickers with Bingol backs I could track down are:

Logo (sticker number 4);
map of West Germany (19-20);
two players from the History section (12 Müller and 15 Rummenigge);
two cities (21 München and 27 Gelsenkirchen);
two 2 stadia (24 Düsseldorf and 32 Hannover);
two head coaches (159 Robson and 230 Lobanovskij),
two referees (261 Casarin and 266 Valentine),
four badges (50 West Germany, 77 Italy, 104 Denmark, and 158 England);
four (left) half-team pictures (126 & 128 Spain, 180 & 182 Ireland, 207 & 209 Netherlands, and 234 & 236 USSR);
all Netherlands players (214-233).

45 stickers altogether. Looks to me like a complete list because:

1) Each competing team is represented either by its badge or its half-team picture,
2) Other stickers come always in quantities of two (historical players, map, stadia, coaches, referees), apart from the tournament's logo,
3) The winning team is complete.

Origin: I am not 100% sure, most probably from the packets with Derby commerial on the rear side. The paper of these packets is rather thin and one can easily see through. I have seen Derby packets with both regular and Bingol sticker at the last place, so maybe the Derby packets do not contain Bingol stickers only.

Miscellaneous: I was surprised that it was not the home team (Italy, speaking of Panini, or West Germany, speaking of the tournament) that got the honor of having a Bingol-back version, but rather the winning team (the Netherlands). This probably means that the Bingol stickers were distributed after Euro 88. Unless Panini and Corriere dello sport had a premonition before the tournament's kickoff ;)
