    1. Sorry, deleted your comment by mistake. I'll update the Denis Law entry. Thanks Roger.

  2. I just completed my set last Friday. I bought two boxes back in May 1988 ! From the two boxes ended up 15 short of a set. It's taken me all that time to finish the set. Anyway - now you tell me there are 3 variations for each sticker ? :-) And here's me thinking it was simply down to cheap ink used by the printer in certain batches, giving us different hues in every pack. I understood there was supposed to be a poster for these stickers, never seen one myself, anyone know if they exist ?


Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
