Topps unveils Merlin Official Premier League Sticker line-up

Collectables specialist Topps has launched its latest Merlin Official Premier League Sticker line-up.

Hitting shelves ahead of Christmas, the new collection promises to delver more detailed player information, updated team stats and over 500 stickers for fans to get their hands on.

The new line-up marks Topps’ second roll-out under the Merlin brand since reinstating the now cult trademark last year.

The 2016 range is the 23rd edition dedicated to the Barclays Premier League since the first official sticker album launched under the Merlin brand in 1994.

Rod Pearson, marketing director for Topps, said: “The new Merlin 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.

“We love the idea of generations coming together, with dads and grandparents collecting stickers alongside their children.

“With the ongoing success of Merlin, the launch of the UEFA Champions League sticker collection last month and the upcoming unveiling of our new Champions League Match Attax trading card game in January 2016, our football portfolio is the strongest it has ever been.”

Starter packs for the Merlin Official Premier League Sticker Collection are priced at £2.50 and include an 88 page sticker album
