World Cup 2014 – Group D: I’ve Got 500 Problems and My Sticker is One

24 Jun

Back in April, Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell went out and bought 100 packages of the Panini World Cup stickers. After opening up all 100 packets in a “fever”, he managed to amass…not one of himself. None. Nada. 500 player stickers. No Joel Campbell.

So he did what any sane person would do.

(Note the pile of Neymar stickers on the right.)

People started replying to this tweet right away, with photos of his sticker and offering to sell them to him. More generously, Panini heard of his plight and offered to send him stickers of himself. (I can’t believe how ridiculous that last sentence sounds now that I’ve written it.)

All’s well that ends well. The next week he tweeted, “Please note that I come with big news…Ya, I got my post Panini in an envelope and is affixed to the album. End of statement.”

This guy is seriously winning me over. Arsene Wenger sure knows how to pick the characters.

    Ugh, dumb stickers In my packets I managed to get Rooney, Xavi, Van Persie, Nani, and worst of all Ashley Cole. I’m starting to think Panini have it out for me.

    That was nice of them to send him his own sticker though.
