South american glossy stickers variation

In some south american countries wich remains to know how many, the stickers manufactured there (probably in Brazil) are thicker and glossier than the international ones (manufactured in Italy). The stickers' fronts are shiny like photographs.

Wow, I didn't expect to find this much on this thread (I mean, I knew there was a lot, but not this lot). Well done, @Makhno :D

@stickersCat that Bocón version is the same I have with me. As I said before, its cover is really soft.

Panini released here non shiny packets (the south american ones).

That's true Sergio. Peruvian album is like a magazine cover. If you like to have other edition contact me and we can arrange some trade. About Shinny packets, not sold in Peru but yes in other SA countries.

Does anyone know if the McDonalds packets (German national team version) came all in double-packets, or did they also come simple?

Also, I don't know why the Nr. 2 (red packet) is so rare... I'm searching one for years
 
#11
Hello! Can someone help me about a dude i have about Euro 2008.
There is any diferences betwen red pakets and green shiny packets? are different stikers?.
I´m going to start Euro 2008 and i have a unopened box of green shiny. I´m looking for buy another box, but i was reading about diferences. One ara shiny and the other no.

The green shiny packets are from the south american edition (Brazil). All the stickers are glossy, despite the international edition. No other difference but this texture.
 
#13
The German Mc Donald´s packets came all in double packets, 5 packets from Nr. 1 - 5 (2 x 8 stickers per double pack) = 80 stickers totally. Just not aware why the red packet Nr. 2 is so hard to find nowadays, even my trader didn´t had any information about that. I could offer for swap all German packets from 1 - 5 (only complete) and shortly also both MCD UK albums (Super Skills and Dream Team) + both posters (SS + TT) + sticker flags sheet if someone with any other rare items is interested in. ;-)
 
#14
Does anybody know where the Brazilian ball stickers had been released in 2008?

Have they been inside the regular packets?

Thanks in advance.
