Panini Ekstraklasa 2013 - Poland

In the recent years (since 2008/2009), Panini has published the official sticker collection of the Ekstraklasa, the Polish Premier League. Here we present the last edition, concerning the season 2012/2013. The album includes all the 16 teams for a total of 340 stickers. The league was won by Legia Warsaw, who stayed leader for the most of the season and won also the Polish Cup. Second place for Lech Poznan and third for former champions Slask Wroclaw. 
The album opens with the contents of the album and the first 3 stickers, which are silver shining: the Panini Logo, the Ekstraklasa Logo and the League Trophy.

Before the teams, there are two special sections, each consisting of two pages. First, six stickers celebrating the previous season are presented: the winner Slask Wroclaw and the best players. Then, there are 10 stickers dedicated to the 10 best young players of the competition. Among them: Skorupski (now goalkeeper at Roma), Kupisz (now at Chievo), Milik (transferred to Bayer Leverkusen), Wolski (now bought by Fiorentina) and Wszolek (now at Sampdoria).

The 16 teams of Ekstraklasa 2013 are: Belchatow, Gornik Zabrze, Jagiellonia, Korona Kielce, Lech Poznan, Lechia Gdansk, Legia Warszawa, Piast Gliwice, Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biala, Pogon Szczecin, Polonia Warszawa, Ruch Chorzow, Slask Wroclaw, Widzew Lodz, Wisla Krakow and Zaglebie Lubin.

The winners of both League and Cup (Legia Warszawa) present some interesting young players: Rafal Wolski (1992), Dominik Furman (1992), Michal Zyro (1992), Daniel Lukasik (1991), and Michal Kucharczyk (1991).

Two Dutch players are included in the album, Johan Voskamp (Slask Wroclaw) and Kew Jaliens (Wisla Krakow). Voskamp is now back at Sparta Rotterdam (Dutch second league), where he scored 29 goals in the season 2010/2011. In Poland he won the title in the season in 2012, scoring 6 goals.

The album closes with the season calendar and the last sticker: the official ball of the competition (silver shining foil), which is also the picture of the cover.
