Sticker Albums

Sticker Albums were books with glossy pages that were designed to hold one's most prized possessions: stickers! Stickers were everywhere growing up in the eighties. And in order to showcase them to your friends (and to make them jealous), you would need to display them in said albums. The best albums had super-glossy pages so that the stickers would peel off the pages without leaving any residue and could be reused.

    I had a Care Bears sticker album - the only one I managed to complete. I also had Neighbours, 101 Dalmations, and The Wuzzles.

    I tried to collect and fill many panini albums. Does anyone remember those football cards that were printed on clear plastic and the special gold or silver stickers which I think had the team badge on?

    Does anyone remember a horror themed sticker album in the 70's? Possibly even very early 80's. I know there was one but the details are sketchy.

    I recently found my Football '86 sticker album and immediatly i was taken back to the playground at middle school with a duffel coat pocket full of swaps and muttering 'Got,got,got....Need!' I always had a surplus of Bruce Grobbelar stickers which nobody wanted. Even 22 years later,the pages in these albums still smell the same and the Peter Beardsley picture still amuses me.

    I also remember collecting Smash Hits stickers when I was about 9. The album had Wham on the first page, and a sticker of George Michael, dressed in white with his trademark blonde bouffant. At the time my friend and I thought he was fabulous and would put perfume on the sticker to make him smell nice. Happy days...

    Anyone else do 'scrambles' at school? Somebody throwing up a big pile of unswappable swaps for anyone to grab. It was usually the boys with their football stickers, although some of the shiny hologram team logo stickers were quite pretty so I went for them.
