Sergio's Collection

Hi guys. I've wanted to do this for a very long time (well, not really, only since I registered in these forums, which was not so long ago :p ). Although it's not the "real thing", this is my humble collection, spanning between 2005 and 2015. However, one third of it was adquired in this year. I'd say I've become really passionate about collecting stickers in this brief period of time.

The collection is as follows:
2005 Torneo Clausura (peruvian league)
2006 FIFA World Cup Germany
2006 Copa Cable Mágico (peruvian league)
2006-2007 UEFA Champions League
2007 Copa América Venezuela
2007-2008 UEFA Champions League
2008 UEFA Euro Austria-Switzerland
2009 Copa Cable Mágico
Cracks Rumbo a Sudáfrica (collection released by Depor, a local sports newspaper, prior to WC 2010)
2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
2011 Copa América Argentina
2012 UEFA Euro Poland-Ukraine
2012-2013 UEFA Champions League
2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil
2014-2015 UEFA Champions League
2015 Copa América Chile
2015 Copa América Chile (hardcover edition)
2015 FIFA Women's World Cup Canada

All of them, except for WWC 2015 Canada, are albums released in Peru and are complete. The WWC album is German.

And this is my packet collection (with the place of origin):
2006 FIFA World Cup Germany (Italy)
2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa (Italy)
2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil (Brazil)
2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil (Italy)
2007-2008 UEFA Champions League (Italy)
2014-2015 UEFA Champions League (Brazil)
2014 Campeonato Brasileiro (Brazil -oh really?-)
2014-2015 Liga BBVA - Latin American edition (Brazil)
2007 Copa América Venezuela (Italy)
2011 Copa América Argentina (Brazil)
2015 Copa América Chile (Brazil)
2006 Copa Cable Mágico (Italy)
2009 Copa Cable Mágico (Italy)

All of them, except for the Italian WC 2014 and Brasileirao packets, were released in Peru

Now, I will show some of the features of the albums released exclusively in my country.

This is the Sporting Cristal squad that won the 2005 season. This was the first title (and the only one, so far) José Guillermo del Solar won as a manager. Center back Alberto Rodríguez (who has played in SC Braga, Sporting and Rio Ave in Portugal) was part of the team. Maybe @dantzig will recognize him. :) It also features Carlos Lobatón, who is still a key player for Peru's national team, despite of his age.

And this is the Alianza Lima squad that won the 2006 season. Some of the best players from this team were Flavio Maestri (former Peru's national team striker), Chilean Fernando Martel and Rinaldo Cruzado.

IMG_2789.JPG

I feel so proud to introduce the Universitario squad that won the 2009 season. Universitario is the most successful team in Peru, with 26 national titles (this was the 25th one). Is it necessary to say that I'm a fan of this team? :)

IMG_2798.JPG

This album features Nolberto Solano in the last part of his career. After playing for Newcastle United, Aston Villa and West Ham United in the Premiership and Larissa in Greece, he came to Peru to play for Universitario because of his close friendship with manager Juan Reynoso. Currently, Solano is the assistant coach of Peru's manager, Ricardo Gareca.

The special stickers for this album are made of fabric. Some of them are quite hard to get until these days.

IMG_2783.JPG

And well, this is the WC 2010 album the newspaper Depor released in Peru. It includes more than a hundred stickers with some of the best players from the 32 teams that played the World Cup. Many of them (as it usually happens) did not play the World Cup, like Ballack, Beckham and Ronaldinho.

The stickers were released in a daily basis. I mean, every day you bought the newspaper, they gave you two stickers. The stickers were released in numerical order.

Well, that's it. If I get new stuff for my collection, I'll update this post. :) Thanks for reading!

PS: I've got the WC 2010 update stickers and the Costa Rica update for Copa América 2011, but I forgot to take pictures of them. :(

Whenever i see these posts, I'm jealous of the awesome collection. Looks amazing! I love seeing the national league stuff from other countries that I would otherwise never see.

I hope to have my collection grow like yours!

Very good collection Sergio, you've been taking good care of it :)

My favourite is that Depor album in 2010, it looks like a Panini album for the clubs... Very nice indeed :)

This is the Sporting Cristal squad that won the 2005 season. This was the first title (and the only one, so far) José Guillermo del Solar won as a manager. Center back Alberto Rodríguez (who has played in SC Braga, Sporting and Rio Ave in Portugal) was part of the team. Maybe @dantzig will recognize him. :) It also features Carlos Lobatón, who is still a key player for Peru's national team, despite of his age.
Yep, I remember Rodriguez perfectly... If any of you know how portuguese league is, you know there are three big clubs: Porto, Benfica and Sporting... Rodriguez was a key player for SC Braga rise to top portuguese league places and meddle between the top clubs, culminating in a historical 2nd place in 2009/10, only losing by a couple of points to Benfica... Also, they've reached Europa League final in 2010/11, the mythical portuguese final against Porto, which they lost, with an offside goal by Falcão (not a scandalous offside, but still offside).

Sadly, he went to Sporting right when my club was in a major crisis, with poor performances, poor board management (only getting debts, selling cheap, buying expensive players, changing managers like changing boxers) and of course, no football trophies at all... I admit also he couldn't fit in the team too, maybe it was a step too big for him... But after achieving so much in Braga, I believe most blame has to be the club instability.

@dantzig During his spell at Braga he had his best years. After that wonderful season, he played an excellent Copa America, where Peru reached third place under Uruguayan manager Sergio Markarián. This season, he's back at Sporting Cristal, although he hasn't played any match yet.

Thank you very much for your comments, guys. They really cheer me up to keep growing my collection. :) I hope someday I'll have a bigger one, and I hope I have a bigger area to store all my stuff, too, hahahaha.

These four babies have just made it into my collection. Packets from the following albums:
Brasil de Todas as Copas (Brazil)
2013 Confederations Cup (Brazil)
2015 FIFA Women's World Cup Canada (Italy)
2015 Mexican Torneo Clausura - Liga Bancomer (Italy)

IMG_2960.JPG

One friend from Mexico and one from Brazil brought them this week.
I've been watching some videos of Brasil de Todas as Copas album, and I want it so bad!

Last time, I forgot to take pictures of these. Now, here they are.
These are my update stickers for WC 2010:

IMG_2961.JPG

And this is my Costa Rica update set for Copa America 2011:

IMG_2963.JPG

Bonus: Here is where I store my albums. I used to store them in a box, but one day, I realized it was too small and the albums didn't fit into it, so I bought one of these plastic boxes. I don't know if it's the safiest way of storing albums, but it's better than the box I had previously.

By the way, this box has just reached its maximum capacity. That means I must buy another one :p

I imagine when you want to take out an album from the bottom ahah... Patrick's storage is the best, but much more expensive too... I keep mine in boxes from packages I receive or laptops :p

Dantzig, see the video and stop at 50 second.
Off-side????
No way.
Yes way. I keep what I wrote before:
(not a scandalous offside, but still offside)
Doesn't mean Porto didn't deserve it... Actually, I was in a dinner with friends and I didn't pay much attention to the TV, so I don't know, and really don't care now, if it was fair win.

Hello, guys. Again, thank you very much for your comments :)
Last time I posted here I had 17 packets. Now, in one month, this is how my collection has grown :p

IMG_20150725_134653775.jpg

You might recognize some of them, like the WC, Champions League and Euro packets. This picture also features:
The four Copa América 2015 packets (Coca-Cola from Chile, non-glitter Brazilian, glitter Brazilian released in Peru, and Italian, the three former made in Brazil)
Packets from some national leagues, like...
Peru (Copa Cable Mágico 2010, made in Italy, first in the fourth row starting from the left)
Mexico (Apertura 14, Apertura 13 - Clausura 14 and Superfútbol 2009, 5th, 6th and 7th respectively, all of them made in Italy)
Chile (Campeonato Nacional Scotiabank 2014-2015, 8th in the same row, made in Brazil)
Brasil (Campeonato Brasileiro 2013, last in the same row, made in... Brazil :p )
Spain (Liga 2006-2007, from Colecciones Este -before it was Este Panini-, the biggest in the last row, guess this is Spanish)
And there are also packets dedicated to Colo Colo (Chile), Universidad de Chile and CD Guadalajara (Mexico), aka Chivas (the two former made in Brazil and the latter made in Mexico)
There are seven different packets of Chivas' collection (There's one missing). They were released by Imagics, a Mexican publisher.

I also completed my Women's World Cup 2015 album (featuring the USWNT, world champions). All the stickers are Italian and, as you can see, fit perfectly in the frames :)

IMG_20150725_135208532.jpg

And I added one complete album to my collection: UEFA Champions League 2013-14 (released in Peru, with Brazilian stickers)

IMG_20150725_153524185.jpg

PS: Mia San Mia!

@ilias Thanks! collecting packets is such a wonderful thing. If I don't have the chance of getting a complete album, at least I can have a little souvenir from it, which is a packet or a sticker :D

Yes I feel the same way sometimes I can not finish a album, but I must keep at least 1 packet from the collection.

Gosh, it does take time to make only one picture. These are all my album souvenirs (that's how I call my packets) up to day.

IMG_9952.JPG

Feel free to ask for information about any of them. :)

Update: New albums

Well, truth is there are not so many new complete albums, but I have added the following ones to my collection:

FIFA 365 (international edition without any special sticker, released in Peru with Brazilian stickers -given the big number of editions, a very specific description :p-)
Liga BBVA 2014-15 Latin American edition
