Panini Futbol Argentino 2022


Futbol Argentino 2022 is the official sticker collection of the Liga Profesional. The album is released by Panini and it includes all the 28 competing teams of this very large championship. The collection begins presenting the tournament and the three introductory (shiny) stickers: the Federation logo, the album cover and the Liga Profesional logo. Then the 28 clubs are shown one after the other in alphabetical order. For each club there are 17 stickers over two pages: the shiny club badge, the shiny home shirt, and 15 players.

At the end of the album there is space for two special sections. The first one is Campeones 2021, celebrating the winners of six trophies in the 2021 season: Copa Liga Profesional (Colon), Torneo Liga Profesional (River Plate), Copa Argentina (Boca Juniors), Trofeo de Campeones (River Plate), Supercopa Argentina (River Plate), and Recopa Sudamericana (Defensa y Justicia). For each winner there is a photo of celebrations composed by two stickers, for a total of 12 stickers in this section. 
The second section (Argentina Campeon Copa America 2021) celebrates the victory of Argentina in the 2021 Copa America. Here we find 28 stickers of players in action with the shirt of Argentina. In this way, also the best players of the National team (Messi, Lautaro, Aguero, Di Maria) have a sticker in this collection.

In the following, we show the empty album and the full set of loose stickers. Overall is a good quality and complete collection, including several shiny stickers, all the clubs of Primera Division and the National team. However, it is still missing a hardcover album to make it at the level of the main Panini leagues.

The collection is part of the Panini series over the history of Brazilian clubs, with previous albums like 100 years of Santos or the centenary of Palmeiras. All of the albums from this series are elegant and well done, a must have for passionate collectors.

Then the history of the main clubs from Bahia is told from the origin to the present days, going through the main victories, the best teams and the most glorious players. The collection ends with the Dream Team, which features among the others the ex-Victoria and Brazil player Bebeto. In the following, we present this collection showing photos of all of the pages.
