I've enjoyed every picture from the folks in Emeryville, California so in addition to coverage of the 2011 NHL Draft we will be having some fun with Pixar collectables this weekend.
The first item is a recent pick up from a run to Target for some supplies. I'm not sure if there is any collector that can enter a Target these days without walking away with something from the cards aisle, so conveniently located near the cash registers.
We've already told you we will be filling a 2011 NFL sticker book this year just so there is football regardless of whether or not there is a NFL season. This should be a good primer for what to expect coming this fall.
By the way, to the parents that might be reading this, these sticker books are excellent for teaching young children numbering, sequencing, matching and motor skills.. Just saying. Besides that, they are flat out fun.
The Book comes with 12 stickers to get you started.
One side is ready to hang on your wall.
The other side of the poster is ready for Special X numbered Stickers.
I also purchased 5 sticker packs.
Front and BackHere are the specialty stickers from our 5 packs.
Special X numbered stickers
Foil versions of regular stickers.
There are 198 regular stickers and 18 Special X numbered stickers
Putting the stickers into the book is really easy. All 32 pages of the book have empty numbered slots.
Just find the sticker that matches the number on the empty slot and peel it.
Besides the framed stickers, there are also stickers that blend into the page to complete a picture.
A great thing Panini has done is when you get to within 40 stickers of completing the book, you can order the exact stickers you are missing directly from Panini. Wouldn't it be great if you could do that with sports cards.
These are a lot of fun to collect and complete. More Pixar stuff tomorrow.
