Now I just need to find the stickers...

Oh emm gosh! Wow! Yay! Jump for joy! Oh crap, I just broke the couch from my excited wild thrashing about!

No, not really. It is cool to see Topps Stickers return to stores. I found this at Target along with... no packs of stickers. I guess someone bought an album and all the sticker packs. So now I play the waiting game, looking for sticker packs, hoping to collect all 309 stickers.

There are 279 player stickers - nine per team plus nine legends, and one sticker for each team. I think I might want a full set.
Here is an image of the stickers, and if you added a Topps logo in the corner you'd have a nice design for a flagship set. I wonder if that's where this design came from.

Here's the question, though: to stick or not to stick? I think if I was to attempt a complete set I would need to stick them in the album. Otherwise, what's the point, right?

What are your thoughts?


  1. I know I stuck them in the album. It's fun, makes me feel like a 9 year old again. Although some would find it a little strange, grown men sticking stickers. Oh well, I'm a stickin'!

  2. I'm resisting, so far, the urge to buy the stickers. I've also seen the albums in two visits to Target a week apart - but no stickers either time. That's helped me resist the urge.

    But, if I were to buy them ... you know what, I'm not helping one bit. I have no idea if I'd stick them. I still have a few dozen unstuck stickers from the early 80s, which leads me to think I would not stick these new ones.

    You know, scratch that, I think I would stick them this go-round. Crinkly is right! It's fun! And that's what this hobby is all about.
