Collecting, and trading, World Cup Panini stickers has been a favorite activity of many school kids around the world (except the US, where soccer just isn't that popular ... but here's Kobe Bryant marketing the stickers), but the 2014 editions are seeing a record-breaking surge in popularity thanks to the boom of social media.

One fan in the UK, however, doesn't want to cough up what would be equivalent to about $700 USD to collect the entire collection. Going by the online handle "Panini Cheapskate", the fan drew his own stickers. All 639 of them. And they look... okay!
