On a recent trip to Spain I was on the lookout for cards at every opportunity.
What a complete disappointment.
I went to countless supermarkets, petrol stations, gift shops, sports shops, you name it.......
and drew a complete blank !!
The only thing I saw on sale were a few packets of Panini World Cup stickers and they took some finding, tucked away at the back of shelves.

In a country that is a big football nation I was very surprised at the lack of World Cup promotion going on generally.

I did speak to one English guy who collected Football autographs, cards etc. and he told me that this type of thing was only generally available in specialist shops. He has lived in Spain for 10 years and in his experience found it easier to buy cards from overseas via the internet.
His comments I thought were remarkable. Why would it be that companies like Panini & Topps produce a product for a mass market and then allow its distribution and sale to be so restricted ?

No doubt other members will also visit Spain and other countries in the next couple of months, It would be interesting to hear about their experiences.
A Big Thankyou to all my Trading Partners

Hi

I´m spanish, and I live in

For those who come in Spain, I recommend to ask in place that sells journals and newspapers.

However, Spain likes more stickers, than cards, so be carefully.

Greetings (from Spain)

Date of the post you quoted is 13th June.

I went to Spain during the World Cup (first and second week) and the lack of cards was very noticeable, we went to 3 major cities. I saw only 1 World Stars starter pack and in total 80 packets of World Stars cards and only 1 store selling Panini World Cup stickers

I saw none of the stickers other than Panini. I saw a shop in a small town which had half a box or so of the Mundicromo Quiz Game cards and about 18 or so packs of the Mega Cracks (plus a box of World Stars and an Adrenalyn BBVA binder)

It came with a Kaka Edicion Especial. I think it was just the binder with a brochure advertisng the cards with a page on each club and the pack of cards.

It was the only one I saw all the while I was there. The only place I saw any cards was in a supermarket in Cordoba, they were in a packet with each packet containing 5 packs of cards and I had the only 4 (so 20 packs) they had.

If you are in Barcelona I recommend to pay a visit to Saint Antony market. There is a collectibles flea market every Sunday morning where, besides old books, postcards, records and so on, you can find stickers and cards. Many sellers have only the current collections on sale (albums and packs) but there are at least 3-4 dealers who can also provide singles or complete collections from previous years.

I can report a different story from my most recent visit to Spain.

Visiting the same region and going to pretty much the same shops as just prior to the World Cup in June,
on this occasion I found Mega Cracks 2010/2011 and Mundicromo 2010/2011.
The best outlets seemed to be the larger ''Upper'' supermarkets that had instore areas selling newspapers & magazines etc. Also, some of the souvenir shops again that stocked books, magazines and newspapers.

Megacracks have a starter pack costing 7 euro. This is mounted on a large cardboard template, you get a binder, which will hold 540 cards (9 per sleeve not 18 back to back as per Match Attax), a plastic 4 compartment card box, a ''megachecklist'' booklet and 3 packs of cards. Individual card packs cost 0.60 euro
http://picasaweb.google.com/107491521969371448520/MegaCracks20102011StarterPack#5513351799048262850

Mundicromo binder costs 4 euro. It is probably 3 times thicker than a Match Attax binder ! No checklist however but there is an index on the inside sleeve. I understand this can be a bit of a random set with multiple cards of the same number. I certainly have 3 different versions of some of the ''shiney'' cards that are different colours, blue, red & green.
Individual card packs cost 0.40 euro

If ever you are visiting Barcelona and you would like to buy Spanish cards or stickers, go to a shop called Totcromo.
It is easy to find 5 minutes walk from Sagrada Familia.

Yes I highly recommend. Josep is a great guy.

When I was a child I sold stickers around the flea market, but it was 30 years ago.
