Panini’s Football 83 sticker album featuring classic English football teams [VIDEO]
In our Trading Cards & Football Sticker series, the latest collection we share is the 1983 Panini Football Sticker Album, which matches the 1982/83 season.
For me, personally, it’s a memorable album because it’s the first vintage that I was able to finish. It took about two years to complete after trading stickers with football fans around the world through the Last Sticker website, as well as purchasing the missing stickers on eBay. I finished the album in 2020 – about 37 years after it was released!
The 1982/83 season is significant in the history of English football as it was Liverpool at its peak. This season, Liverpool have won the league and manager Bob Paisley has retired after winning several European and national titles during his nine years at the helm of the Reds.
It was a season that saw Manchester City, Brighton and Swansea relegated to the Second Division.
Watch our showcase of the complete Panini Football 83 collection featuring football stickers from many English football stars including Kenny Dalglish of Liverpool, Bryan Robson of Manchester United and many more in the video below:
