WAY BACK IN 1990, a young The42 reporter was devastated when his Panini Italia 90 sticker collection was left missing just one entry and, to this day, he has never forgiven Gerry Peyton for his absence.

Of course, that was well before albums could be completed by heading to your favourite auction site but it has always bothered him not to have finished it, especially when he sees how much a complete album — albeit in much better condition than mine would have been — is worth 25 years later.

Here’s a rough estimation of how much it and other pieces of Italia 90 memorabilia is worth two a half decades removed from Ireland’s first ever visit to the Fifa World Cup.
