Sticky Situation: Panini America Peeks the Official 2011 NFL Sticker & Album Collection

June 01, 2011

Regardless of what ultimately transpires with the ongoing labor struggles between the NFL and NFL PLAYERS, this much is guaranteed: In late August, NFL fans will have a bona fide sticky situation on their hands.

And in this case, that’s a good thing.

Panini America today provided the first look at its official 2011 NFL Sticker & Album Collection, the highly anticipated, fun-and-affordable-for-all-ages followup to last year’s popular peel-and-place premiere.

Last season’s winning recipe returns largely intact for 2011, including a $1 SRP for seven-sticker packets and a $2 album to house each of the collection’s 494 total stickers. In addition to 354 Glossy “base” stickers, there also will be 100 Holographic Foil stickers and 40 Micro-Etched Stickers.

Each of the NFL’s 32 teams will be represented by 13 stickers, including rookies, and two pages in the massive 72-page album. New for 2011 will be a special Pop Warner section devoted to NFL superstars who cut their teeth in the world’s leading youth football organization.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance as the late-August release date draws closer for additional updates.
