Panini - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brasil Sticker Collection

2014 FIFA World Cup Brasil
640 stickers

I don't know if this is a feasible project. I'm trying to get scans of the bottom half of the back covers of all the different versions of the album. The album has been issued in a couple on the Adriatic coast so far. The back cover is shown above, along with a map of Europe with the two countries identified. Over time I intend to extend this to include Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas.

I'd like to thank Peter Farmer for sending in scans of so many albums.
If the album is available in your country please send a scan of the bottom half of the back cover if you can. Thanks to Alvaro Sapag for a scan of the back cover of the Chilean album, which is different to all the others seen so far. Thanks also to Дмитрий Палинов (Dmitry) for an updated scan of the Russian album.
On another point, I'd be interested in buying any empty album that includes any of these players amongst the six free stickers given with the album - Gary Medel (Chile), Kim Bo-Kyung (South Korea).

  1. Brilliant idea. I always try and find the different back variations but never know if I have them all.

  2. searching for the different backs is a never ending story. even album with the same back (same flags) are possible different in the inside. so it was in some albums of euro 2012.
    i think i have 20 different back cover albums..

    @alan: do you have a list for euro 2012?

    1. Hi Levivo

      I've got information on 16 albums from Euro 2012, but I'm not sure how many I've got photos of. I'll check that out.

    2. did you check it out?

  3. In Venezuela he was released today (March 30 2014) in a newspaper as a gift. Although it has not come because he was a guy who reserve the album and working on newsstand.

    But really this album costly for the Venezuelan economy, the minimum wage does not reach for a Sticker's Box.

    Venezuela's Price:
    Album: Bs. 160,00
    Stickers: Bs . 50,00
    Stickers Box: Bs. 5.000,00
    Fortnightly Minimum Wage Bs. 1.550,88 (includes basic deductions)

    In Venezuela the Stickers are called Barajitas

    P.S:When I got the album send a photo, the scanner is damaged by electrical faults.

    1. Hi Legarad

      That is very expensive. If you can send a photo of the back cover that would be great. Thanks.

    Also added details of another sheet of 6 stickers, a scan is included too.

    Both these items have been supplied by Rubenigge (Ruben Rodriguez).

  10. I've had an e-mail from Peter Farmer:

    Thanks for all your efforts on collating the backs of the albums and the sticker packets. It has been really useful.
    In terms of the albums I will send you clear scans of all the back covers in due time as I think I have a full set.
    I have just received an Israeli version and a Chinese version is on its way so I will send you scans of those when I receive them.

    Have you any Scandinavian followers who can confirm if there is a back cover for their part of the world. (Maybe not as no Scandinavian country reached the Finals).

    Also have you any African followers who can confirm if there is an African variation?


  11. ISRAEL album cover added. Thanks to Peter Farmer.

  12. New album cover added - covers South Africa, Hong Kong, Lebanon, New Zealand, Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, Mauritius, Thailand, United Arab Emirates.
    Thanks to Peter Farmer.
