Here we present the official sticker collection of the Spanish Liga for the season 2014-2015. It is a massive album with more than 600 stickers. It is thus the second largest league collection for this season after the Panini Calciatori. Both album and stickers have a large size. Stickers are thick and include both the player portrait and the player in action.
The album opens with the table of contents and than show all the Liga teams in alphabetical order, from Almeria to Villarreal. For each team there are four pages and 25 stickers, which are numbered from 1 to 25 for each team and not continuously as usually in sticker collections. These 25 stickers are 20 players, the team photo, the coach, the logo (shining sticker), the 2013-14 summary, and the star player (shining sticker). As the album has been realease in August, before the beginning of the season, there are update stickers for each team, to replace players that left the team. These update stickers are called 'coloca' (=collocate) as they have to be placed on top of the old sticker, preferably with a special tecnique explained later in this post. Also, to include the new players transferred at the beginning of the season, there is a special section (Ultimos Fichajes) at the end of the album. This section includes 56 new players.
After the Liga teams, there is a section of three pages about the second division, which includes 22 stickers of the club logos of the Liga Adelante teams.
The last part of the album includes the last transfers ('Ultimos Fichajes'). Among these 56 new players we can find Rakitic (Barcelona), Luis Suarez (Barcelona), Kroos (Real Madrid), James Rodriguez (Real Madrid), Vietto (Villarreal), Vermaelen (Barcelona).
To update the players that left the competition at the beginning of the season, 60 replacement stickers ('Coloca') have been released. These stickers can be glued in correspondance of the substituted player written on the back of the sticker. To preserve both stickers, we suggest to glue the update sticker in the following way (see picture below): start removing the sticker from its paper from the right side and cut away a slice of about 1 cm of the paper; glue the right side of the sticker next to the one to be replaced. In this way you can lift the sticker anytime and see the sticker below,
Di Maria, transferred to Manchester United, has been replaced with De Tomas. The replacement sticker can be glued on the right side to preserve the sticker below.
The two best players on the planet are on this album: Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
Two young rookies emerging this season: José Gaya (Valencia) and Munir El Haddadi (Barcelona).
The youngest players included in this album are Nahuel (Villarreal) and Success (Granada), both from 1996
A curiosity of this album: two stickers have been printed with two different versions. One is the logo of Liga Adelante team Llagostera and the other is the 'Ultimos Fichajes' Luis Suarez. The two versions can be glued one on top of the other with the same technique previously explained for the replacement stickers.
