La Nacion (Costa Rica) - Francia 98


Francia 98
La Nacion
Costa Rica
72 stickers

I discovered these cards on eBay recently and wondered if anyone knew anything about them? I think they were issued by the newspaper La Nacion, and they seem to be perforated. So far I've found the following, but there are probably a lot more.
UPDATE (12-04-2017 12:06):  Thanks to the comment by daser below, the cards were issued in sheets of nine over an eight weeks for a total of 72 stickers.

  1. Hello!

    I don't know if this page is still alive hehe.

    I didn't expect to find this information in a foreign page. Those cards, in fact, were released in Costa Rica as a promotional merchandise to France 98 World Cup.

    The set contains 72 cards, and they came included every sunday inside the newspaper with a 9-card shet (1 sheet per group).

    Feel free to email me if you want to see the entire set.
