Review Summary:

France 98 is one of the most popular sticker collections ever. Design is quite standardized and there are no innovations compared to the previous collections. Quality is very good. The whole Iran team license problem made this collection impossible to complete for most people.

Pros

Standardized quality. Beautiful look of the introductory page with shiny stickers. Interesting design.

Cons

Iran team license problem, not all the teams have same amount of stickers. Hard to complete.

    Pavle, the Iranian players and badge were available to order from Panini UK only in the UK…they were never released in our packs…they were issued with the statement “manufactured in the UK for distribution solely in the uk” and came with a covering letter from panini. The images above for Iran, are they authentic international edition stickers for Iran? the badge just looks a bit strange?
    the badge which was issued by Panini for Iran has a white background and the players all have dubbed out shirts.
    I wasnt aware of any iran players released in european editions? learn’t something new if they were?

    • Pavle says

      Andy this is not the original version. My bad. I uploaded a wrong photo of Iran team.
      Everything about the Iran set and France 98 can be found in the FRANCE 98 A-Z guide we published (which is sent to subscribers for free).

      Besides UK there was an Italian Edition, and there is a rumor of Venezuelan as well.

    Excellent work! I have seen in Brazil a panini france 98 (brazilian edition), including some extras sheets. I just remember Leonardo and Dunga. Do you know something about this?

    Best regards.
