Panini Snow White Figures (2001)

In 2001, the Italian-based Panini reissued their Snow White 225-sticker collection. Previously, the cards were sold six per blind packet, but for a limited time in this release, they were packaged with five stickers plus a random plastic figure. They were available widely in Italy and to a lessor extent in other European countries. A total of 11 figures were produced: Snow White, the Prince, Queen, Witch, and Seven Dwarfs. Snow stands approximately 2.25" (5.5 cm) tall.

Panini Snow White Foil Stickers (2000)

Snow White foil trading card stickers by Italian-based Panini. Issued as part of "The Princesses" series. Dates from the year 2000. Six cards labeled "A" through "F". Self-adhesive peel-off backing.

Note: Under regular lighting conditions, the backgrounds actually appear more metallic silver as is normal with foil cards. The vibrant colored squares pictured in these images are heightened by the scanning process.

Promotional Panini Stickers in French TV Guide (1984)

Twelve complimentary Blanche Neige stickers by Panini were included in the January 10, 1984 issue of Telestar (one of several TV guides published in France). The promotion is noted on the front cover.

The stickers belong to a larger 360-card Snow White series by Panini which was released in France in 1983. The idea behind this promotion was to offer the magazine's readership two complete 4-piece image sets and two 2-piece sets, all of which would have taken much longer to complete if purchased in the random blind packets sold in stores.

Nos. 84-87

Nos. 128-129

Nos. 204-207

Nos. 270-271

Th numbered cards are identical to those found in the regular collection. However, the backs are different in that when these are placed side-by-side, they form a couple of promotional ads for the series.

Special thanks to Greg Philip of A Lost Film for sharing these images scans and info from his collection.
