    As i was a child of the 60s i collected the A&BC gum cards.I have all the civil war news plus the confederate dollar bills you got with the stick of gum and a card.I also have some of the small tin badges...Batman and the Monkees. I was really lucky in the Summer and picked up a set of topps Mars Attacks cards plus 17 spares in nice condition from my local Car Boot,they are the originals from 1965 and cost 1.00.

    That's a good haul on original Mars Attacks cards, I'm jealous!

    I used to get You'll Die Laughing/Creature Feature cards back in the day and when the first Star Wars cards (the red and then blue borders) came out there was a mini craze that ran through the school. I also had a mate who wallpapered his bedroom in Superman The Movie bubblegum cards.

    I pick up a few now and again. Got a set of Topps' Dinosaurs Attack! last year. Gruesome but hillarious!

    My father in law went in tesco around oct/nov and was given a carrier bag full of packets of football cards which he gave my son.But they were from the summer collection not the 2010-2011.I think there was over 130 unopened packets proberbly more.The card fronts are identical to the new ones but the backs were red not the current green.My son was going to sell them but they are not worth as much as he thought.

    The only collection I managed to finish was the first Smash Hits collection of pop stars. There were other people at school collecting them as well so it was easy to swap unwanted ones. Then when you get to the final five or so you could send off a postal order and they would send them to you. It must have been about 1984 some time.

    A year or so later they did another but I was getting too old by then.

    i always tried to tocollect all the stickers in football albums.
    im sure we all know which i mean.

    I always managed to get most of them but there where always 20 odd i could never get.

    sometimes i think certain players on pourposely had less made so it was hard to get them all.

    Im pretty sure i did these for each season of the eighties.

    My brother collections the Pannini Football sets for a few years.

    The only thing I remember completing was an Italia 90 bindermag with stickers, even then it took a "last few" offer to do it.

    do you still have it rich.
    i assume it would have had even more stickers in it than the normal panini sticker books that came out each year.
    and id think it very hard to complete.

    As far as I know my brother still has it, I think it had at least 500 stickers, along with sections on each world cup, famous players from history & lots of other info.
