Got...got...NEEEED!!...
« on: November 14, 2017, 09:11:41 PM »
some of you, like me, may well be eagerly looking forward to watching The Football Sticker Story on ITV4 at 10:15 tonight.

It's about the ok Panini football sticker collecting that was all the rage with schoolboys from the 70s to the early 90s when Merlin took over with the advent of the Premier League.

There was also an article on The Mag site about just this phenomenon.

Really am looking forward to this trip down memory lane.  :thumbs:

I've got 2 full sticker books here. Charley Hurley is in the Scumberland team and Geoff Astle in the other.

My old man used to fix school bogs for a living. Back then talking to kids wasn't considered a sexual offence so he used to take my swap pile round the borough for me and my book would be full by October. My mates were always impressed but looking back I can't help thinking some of the fun might have been taken out of it.

That's a shame that. It does kinda defeat the point.
