Rod Pearson, Marketing Director for Topps, said: "We're really excited for the upcoming release of our Premier League sticker Collection, it's great we are able to celebrate 25 fantastic years of Premier League history. All our prizes have been personally hand-signed by some of the greatest footballers to ever play in the English division. It's a real who’s who of the history of the Premier League covering the likes of Alan Shearer, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard."
In total, an estimated 27,000,000 collectors have eagerly ripped open paper packets in search of their football heroes since Merlin first published the Premier League collection in 1994. The latest release from the legendary Merlin stickers brand is packed full with exciting content such as special foil stickers and new large stickers. With over 300 stickers to collect, fans of all ages will be on the lookout for all their football heroes from the 20 Premier League teams, including the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero, and Harry Kane.
“Merlin’s Official Premier League Sticker Collection offers something for football fans young and old, with the nostalgia of Merlin appealing to those who remember the brand from their childhood, and new design features and stats giving the collection a fresh feel for our newer supporters," added Rod. "It’s a great way of celebrating the iconic Premier League which it’s hard to believe has been around for 25 years.”
