'Football through philately' book released
Kochi, June. 11: 'Football Through Philately',
a book with a unique collection of stamps depicting
the story of football in all its charm and glory,
especially the World Cup, was released here today.
Kerala Minister for Fisheries S Sarma,
released the book at a function got up at
the Ernakulam Press Club here.
An avid stamp collector for the past three decades,
Jose J Vattoth, an English teacher of
St Antony's High School, Vandanmedu in Kerala's
Idukki district is the author of the 128 page
English book, which is priced at Rs 100.
"The main purpose of this book is to show how
philately genuinely loves to promote the
beautiful game of football through stamps
and other philatelic materials', he said.
Football stamps dating to the first World Cup
Soccer tournament in 1930 are in
the thematic collection of Jose,
who turned to collection of football stamps
as a specialization in 1986,
during the time of the then World Cup.
Stamps illustrating the beautiful goals
netted by the legendary Pele, his 1000th goal
in an international football tournament on Nov 19,
1969 and Diego Maradona of Argentina are among
the 600 stamps in the book.
Besides, the book has write-ups,
including on the history of the origin of football
Association, FIFA, Errors on or football
stamps, stadiums and names of renowned

Have you heard Online philately,
is the new fad Earn stamps with soccer
players' statistics, pictures Software allows
fans to collect, trade stamps in 11 languages
Avail of stamps by playing video games,
predicting match winners
Berlin: Everything seems to have gone digital,
even trading stamps at the World Cup.
What was once a children's hobby of collecting
and pasting stamps in a book can now be done
electronically in a computer only this is free,
without the glue, and it's brought to you by
the same company best known for the pastime.
Coca-Cola's World Cup web site,www.coca-cola.com/football
features a virtual Panini sticker album,
where registrants can earn stamps with players'
pictures, stats and biographical detail,
trade them, and watch their collection grow.
I have singed up to collect my.
"We have a good mixture of youth
experiencing Panini sticker albums
for the first or second time,
" said Coke's global marketing
spokesman Philipp Bodentza.
"I'm 38, and I remember my Panini collection.
It's fun to see all pictures from
the previous tournaments, as well."
The album is a collaboration of Coke,
an official World Cup sponsor;
Panini, the Italy-headquartered company that
has been producing soccer sticker albums
since 1961 and World Cup versions since 1970;
and White Plains, N.Y.-based Tokenzone, Inc.,
which developed the software to allow
fans to collect and trade stamps in 11 languages.
"One of the nice things, with 11 different languages,
is it interfaces with the different languages,
so you can trade with someone, say, in Japan,
" Tokenzone president Isaac Arias said.
After registering, visitors to the site earn
stamps by various methods.
They get three stamps every four hours,
provided they log in again; get stamps for
playing video games on the site,
both against the computer and against other players;
for watching TV commercials for Coke's
"Rivalidades" World Cup ad campaign;
downloading screen savers and wallpaper;
answering trivia questions; inviting others to join;
and predicting the winners of matches.
Some players' stickers are rarer than others,
and collectors get duplicates.
These can be exchanged in the trading room
with other collectors from around the world.
There are about 600 players in the virtual album,
but collectors need only accumulate
100 designated players to automatically
get the whole set.
One-to-five players per team are designated,
and once the handful of players per team
are collected, the remainder of the
entire team is downloaded.
Italy's Gianluigi Buffon and Alessandro Nesta,
and France's Zinedine Zidane and Fabien Barthez
are among the designated players.
There's bad news for fans of the U.S. team,
which is the only one of the 32 World Cup sides
not included; Panini's couldn't secure
the rights to American players.
