Meet the Panini addict who owns the biggest sticker collection in the world
Gianni Bellini owns the largest football sticker collection in the world.
For most people, collecting football stickers is a mere hobby, but for this 54-year-old Panini enthusiast it has become a rite of passage.
At the age of 19, Gianni began collecting stickers professionally and he now splashes out around 4000 Euros every year on filling his albums.
The Italian has built up a vast collection that covers all the leagues across the globe, including his native Serie A to the Finnish Veikkausliiga.
But spending vast sums of money doesn’t bother the eccentric collector, who believes he would make a mint if he was to sell what he has amassed.
Gianni owns the coveted 1970 Mexico World Cup album, which is worth around 10000 Euros alone.
