21 discounted packs of Panini World Cup stickers

I decided to document the opening of my hugely discounted Panini packets. After this I may never do pack rip posts again. Enjoy it while you can!

Pack 1
140 Chinedu Obasi Ogbuke - nope
183 England Emblem - Yes!
227 Rafik Halliche - YES!
19 Half of Mbombela Stadium - nope
Lukas Podolski - nope
346 Wesley Sneijder - YEEEES!
72 Diego Godin - nope
636 Humberto Suazo - nope

Got three in the first pack including an England Shiny that I gave away to a friend thinking I'd be able to buy all the packs I wanted during the World Cup. HA!!!

Pack 2
127 Vincent Enyeama - nope
458 Leo Bertos - nope
96 Jeremy toulalan - nope
559 Christiano Ronaldo (!) - YEEEEEES!
145 Korea Emblem - nope
467 Slovenska Republika - nopeka
354 Denmark Emblem - nope
598 Blaise Nkufo -Yep!

When I was looking through the album seeing which stickers I was missing, I kept seeing supermegastars like Beckham and Thierry Henry were not stuck in the album. Nice to get Ronaldo out of the way before I go begging for stickies.

Pack 3
144 Korea Republic - nope
476 Vladimir Weiss - nope
452 Ivan Vicelich - nope
571 Sergio Busquets - Yep!
279 Mark Schwarzer - nope
162 Lee Keun-Ho - Yesssss
420 Danielle De Rossi - nope
88 France Emblem - YEAAAAAH!

Concidering I have about 75% of the set, getting three stickers I need in a packet is pretty good. Apparently France's Emblem is a surreal chicken. Had I known that, I probably would have rooted for them during the Cup. (naaaaaah)

Pack 4
356 Daniel Agger - nope
168 Sokratis Papastathopoulos - nope
165 Alexandros Tzorvas
231 Kaled Lemmouchia - nope
99 Florent Malouda - nope
276 Mario Gomez - nope
538 Kader Keita - Yes!
465 Shane Smeltz -Yes!

It was looking grim until the end there... I wish there were more Greeks playing baseball. Their names are fun to type. Papastathagapadopacropaflopadiogeneskapabrapadopoulos!

Pack 5
156 Lee Chueng-Yong - nope
318 John Mensah - Yep!
354 Denmark Emblem - nope
108 Sergio Romero - Yes!
38 Aaron Mokoena - nope
340 Andre OOijer - YEEES!
127 Vincent Enyeama - nope
271 Piotr Trochowski - nope

Yeah! three more including Russell Brand. At this rate I'll only need two more boxes to complete the set. I got a goal keeper this time too which is nice. Also: Ooijer is a great name. Oiijer Ooijer Ooijer!

Pack 6
38 Aaron Mokoena - nope
58 Pavel Pardo - Yep!
398 Benoit Assou-Ekotto - Yes!
234 Hameur Bouazza - WOOOOO!
115 Fernando Gago - nope
51 Guillermo Ochoa - YEEHAW!
530 Abdoulaye Meite - YEEEEAAAAH!
604 Osman Chavez - *Head Asplode*

When I opened the packet I didn't recognize many of the stickers, but I didn't think I'd need six stickers out of it! I doubt I'll come close to that in any of the others I have yet to open. Maybe there's some Fleer collation going on and I'll get equally lucky with a few more down the line.

Pack 7
305 Neven Subotic - nope
607 Mauricio Sabillon - nope
363 Daniel Jensen - Yes!
507 Ri Myong-Guk - nope
291 Brett Holman - nope
58 Pavel Pardo - just got it....
173 Alexandros Tziolis - nope
84 Luis Suarez - nope

Dupes in consecutive packets. Grrrrr..... At least Jensen keeps my streak alive.

Pack 8
39 MacBeth Sibaya - nope
614 Edgar Alvarez - Yesssss
442 Victor Caceres - Yep!
567 Sergio Ramos - nope
258 Deutschland - Yes!
245 Bojan Jokic - WOOOOOO!
130 Obinna Nwaneri - YEAAAAAAAH
605 Victor Bernardez - *Head Asplode*

Six more stickers I needed! Inconcievable! My luck will run out soon, I'm going to enjoy this while I can. Just like I enjoy Edgar's hair. Shocking!

Pack 9
43 Steven Pienaar - nope
125 Nigeria - Yes!
75 Jorge Fusile - nope
374 Eiji Kawashima - nope
262 Per Mertesacker - nope
242 Bostjan Cesar - nope

Two more including a keeper. Awwwww Yeah....

Pack 10
145 Korea Republic Emblem - nope
243 Miso Brecko - nope
141 Victor Obinna - Yes! I think!
109 Marin Demichelis - nope
522 Jong Tae-Se - nope
241 Samir Handanovic - nope
538 Kader Keita - Yes?
590 Marco Padalino - yEEEEAH~!

I'm not actually sticking these in the album as I pull them because I need to scan the suckers for this post. As a result, if I get dupes of a sticker that I already pulled I have no clue. I thought about marking the book for stikers I already have but have not stuck yet, but pulling the stickers I need is making me so happy that I'm just going to carry on and defer my duplicate disappointment for later.

613 Danilo Elvis Turcios - nope

519 Kim Myong-Won - nope
