Merlin's Premier League 2016

Merlin's Premier League is the official sticker collection of the English Premier League. The album opens as usual with the table of contents and the foreword of Richard Scudamore. In this introduction there are 5 shining stickers: the trophy (2 stickers), the Premier League logo (2 stickers) and the Merlin's album logo. 
The 20 teams are shown in alphabetical order. Each club is displaced over four pages. The first page includes a photo and sentence of the coach, the best 11 on the field and 5 stickers: club logo (shining), team photo (2 stickers), and two key players. The other three pages include 18 stickers of players with statistics and player details printed on the album. Two of the player stickers are special shining stickers: the captain and the star player. The background of each sticker is highly edited as usual in the Topps collections. 
Leicester won an historical title in this 2015/2016 season with great revelations as Vardy, Mahrez and Kanté. Top scorer was Harry Kane (Tottenham) with 25 goals, one more than Vardy and Aguero.

In the center of the album there is a section with the kits (official shirt and shorts). For each club there are two stickers, one with the home kit and the other with the away kit for a total of 40 stickers over five pages for this section.
