Second year for the MotoGP sticker album. When Panini makes the Panini, that of once upon a time, that we will love forever. While Topps presents a rather poor collection for F1, Panini responds with a look towards the past and creates a collection that in its somehow simplicity makes it absolutely pleasant.

After all, from a purely Italian point of view, if sporting satisfactions have been lacking in F1 for many years, due to the fluctuating results of Ferrari, in MotoGP the sky very often turns “azzurro”, both for the drivers’ and constructors’ championships. Ducato red shines brighter than Ferrari.

The decision to create an album with a limited number of stickers has been confirmed, considering the increasingly demanding cost of the packets, it is right, dutiful, we would say necessary, that the collections have a total number of stickers that does not make completing the album too expensive . Calciatori aside, the other collections, with rare exceptions, should have a total number of stickers between 180 and 250, maximum, also considering that the boxes now include 24 or 36 packets.

Another important detail: they are stickers! Give us old people, old people, dinosaurs, but if we are destined for extinction, well until the last possible day we want to find albums on newsstands to fill with little paper friends to attach. Cards can wait.

The MotoGP collection is essential, in the positive sense of the term. As for the football stickers, each team is granted the same space, two pages that unite the two pilots representing them with large photographs with 14 stickers.

The graphics are captivating, the choice to differentiate the stickers is even more so. Not only special, standard, of the pilot, helmet, motorcycle, etc. But also or above all in a different format, which certainly make it more fun to complete the album. If desired, shaped stickers could also be added but even so, the set of pages does not go unnoticed.

Clearly the need to limit the total number of stickers means that part of the album cannot be dedicated to the history of MotoGP, Panini still manages to give space to the great champions of the past, which is in any case recent, i.e. from the birth of MotoGP. In the last edition, however, space was given to the Legends, we still remember the emotion of finding the figurine of the legendary Giacomo Ago Agostini.

The stickers of the circuits have also been re-proposed with technical details and a brief caption, another important aspect, even more so than having stadiums in football albums. Final pages for Moto2 and Moto3, so as to have a complete panorama of this world loved and followed by millions of fans all over the world, with Italy at the centre.

Important album, to support and collect, because Panini decides to continue producing it. Maybe leave other collections of little value (and sometimes little sense) like the latest “Azzurri” at newsstands and dedicate a little bit of your savings to MotoGP 2023.
