    I believe thats one of them. Was looking for ages myself.

    Basically the picture you posted is the first series of cards they did, they then did a second series with a sports theme and included many of the same characters that you posted.

    Yes. You are correct to remember these. It is also driving me mad. These were big business in the playground when I was a kid and was hovering around the peripheries of my memory.

    They were called Team Spirits and the internet has only a trace of a few of them. Gremlin the rugby player, spectre the cricketer, slimeball the weightlifter and a devil tennis player. I remember others vaguely. Purple people eater did some skiing, there was fungus the footballer and a rock monster on a surf board that could be the coolest thing ive ever seen before or since.

    There was a less successful follow up series called holiday spirits featuring the exact same characters but i remember even less about that.

    Also there was a similar set of joke dinosaur ones. Doyouthinkhesaurus etc. But the internet lets me down on those too.

    If you get hold of somewhere I can get my hands on any let me know.

    They remind me of those "Garbage Pail Kids" stickers that seem to crop up everywhere during the late 1980s. At least they didn't do the same with the football album ones.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    I collected (& still have) Garbage Pail Kids stickers.

    I remember some schools banned them because of how freaky some of the stickers were.
