Embarking down the road awash with football memories, the 90's, an era of football revolution - for old times' sake enjoy a little slice of pre-internet football fandom. 25p a pack and the shock of a shiney, it's only the Merlin sticker album from 1997 of course.

Why? Well why not quite frankly. This was a time in which Robbie Fowler was rocking nose tape, Julian Dicks was fronting the official West Ham United magazine and Old Trafford had the capacity of a mere 54,000. Times have changed a little and there's no finer way to demonstrate this than with this triumph from the good people at Merlin.

Drenched in finer detail, this came from an era where the granular was hard to come by. These sticker albums, often a bible to many, held everything you need to know about your team - should they be lucky enough to be in the Premier League that is. Quite possibly the gateway into becoming a football fan, they are timeless gems. From a club address (postal of course, you'd have to write. With a pen.) to the one designated 'International Player', not to mention the delicious graphic of a stadium. Mind blowing stuff at the time of course.

More powerful than any mediocre currency, that lucrative 'number one', each sticker was placed with the dangerous mix of excitement and precision. An assault on the eyes in the perfect football appreciating way, completing the album was some kind of sorcery.
