Do you remember Panini?
In 1989 I filled the football sticker album in its entirety.
It was a great way of getting to know players.
One of the problems the GAA have had in recent years is familiarity with players, especially for hurling, where helmets are mandatory.
Would you be able to recognise 2014 Hurler of the Year Richie Hogan on the street? Or 2013 Hurler of the Year and Young Hurler of the Year Tony Kelly for that matter?
The GAA have launched their first ever Trading Card for Gaelic Games.
The 'Cúl Heroes' collection includes 468 hurlers and footballers, allowing children to get a better sense of their heroes, their skills and their identities, while reinforcing positive messages around diet and emotional well being.
A packet of Cúl Heroes trading cards (6 per pack) is on sale for €1.50, with the standard collection folder available for €6.50.
A deluxe collection folder is also available which has one player from each county for €10.00.
Kids will be swapping cards like mad this summer.
It really is a cool idea.
