Already in portuguese stores.



  • Album has 395 stickers;
  • Packet with 6 stickers each;
  • Starter Pack with album + 10 packets (free version);
  • Box/Display with 50 packets (300 stickers);
Have to say, by just seeing the cover (will buy later the SP), it's one of the ugliest ever, mostly the "Futebol" colors, mixing orange with red... Stickers design doesn't seem bad and hopefully the quality will be, at least, the same from last year.

Ah! Seems this year there's also prizes, kind of scratch tickets... You can get free packets from a blue box, which is just for giving those prize packets (don't know how many stickers it brings or if there's something new there)... Also Panini advertise you can win the official Panini ball by playing something (unlike last years where you needed to complete the "Adepto" word).

Thanks @dantzig

It's great to see the imagery and I know what you mean about the colours used in the designs! Last year's quality was incredibly good and is a pleasure to own.

Just wondering if Adrien Silva is included or not? Guessing he'll not be in the Topps PL album either!

I've opened a starter and stickers are a little smaller than last year. Also, quality seems a bit worse too (but still very good)... And yes, Adrien is in the album, I actually got his sticker from the 10 packets... There's also mistakes in the portuguese playing abroad, with Gonçalo Guedes still in PSG (currently in Valencia), Renato Sanches in Bayern (currently in Swansea) and Nani in Valencia (currently in Lazio)... All are on loan, but still wrong.

Unlike last year, every team now has (again) the same number of stickers, but only 17 each. All have 2 GK, 6 defenders, 6 midfielders and 3 forwards. All 18 badges are in the beginning.

Special stickers are decent, with the usual light texture for badges and Top Aquisições. Portugal Top Stars have a slight diagonal light effect (same as Euro 2016 Adrenalyn, like Mascot card).

Btw, Panini is giving quite a lot of free packets! Each packet has that scratch card and you can get either 1, 2 or 5 free packs (of course, most of them are zero when they say "Segue Jogando" (Keep Playing)... I just got two free, but saw many people getting a lot.

Anyway, here's my starter pack video (it's over 30 minutes!) and it's in portuguese, but you'll get most of it.

Great video @dantzig

Overall it looks like a very nice album and something I'd like to have here for the PL (we hope and dream of the day)...

Badges look very smart and I also like seeing more of the shirts on the players too. The FIFA 16/17 album showed very little of the shirt which was disappointing.

I'm thinking... and hoping that Adrien may be available for the Topps PL album in January after all!

I have a question about this collection; is the set "ultimas aquisicoes" (numbers 369-395) already published or not? And if it's the case, how or where can we find it?

UA's + 3 Bis are out since late October:


They're sold only in orange displays/boxes (no blue boxes/blisters/starters). To find if a sealed box has them, you need to check if the number below QR code starts with 401. For extra security, check if bold number on the transparent seal that closes the box is between 16 and 20.
