There are 230 stickers in the collection, including 10 shinies.

Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News editor David Powles said: "We were keen this album was not just a nostalgic trip down memory lane or solely an avenue to celebrate the current squad - but a mix of both. That's why over the next few months you'll discover in your packs iconic images from greats like Duncan Forbes and Jeremy Goss, alongside moments of joy from last season.

"I dearly hope people will relish colecting the stickers and enjoy being reminded of the many womderful moments and talented players we've had the pleasure of witnessing over the years."

The book is split into sections, which include the current first team, Canary kits through the years, goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, forwards and managers.
