Unknown issuer (Argentina) - Figuritas Canchita

Figuritas Canchita
Unknown issuer
17x12+1+23 stickers

There are a total of twelve teams represented in this collection, six are the home team ('L' series) and six are the away team ('V' series) and there's one referee (A1), Frankenstein. This allows the collector to decide which two teams will play each other. All the players are cartoon characters, such as Batman, Spiderman, Mighty Mouse, The Phantom, etc. Some are of Argentina origin, like Nippur de Lagash and are not so easy to identify. All are shown wearing the colours of the team they represent. The first 11 stickers for each team are the players and these are intended to be cut from the sticker, each player has a slightly different shape to match the designated position on the field of play. This means that all six 'L1' stickers will be the same shape when cut out. The same goes for the other 22 stickers that are intended to be pasted onto the pitch - 'L2' to 'L11' and 'V1' to 'V11', including the referee.
The album consists of four pages, the front cover, which can be customized with the alphabetical stickers to indicate the two chosen teams, as shown in the examples; the centre pages which features the football field and the back page, which has spaces for the final six stickers of each team and these feature portraits of various cartoon characters, some of which are easy to identify and include The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Popeye, Bugs Bunny, Laurel and Hardy, etc. I did intend to compile a list of all the characters but this overview is all I have got so far. All the characters are drawn by Felix Saborido and his work has featured previously, a later but similar collection called Gran Match de los Super Famosos.
