I just found out my wife had three packages of cards in her trunk for the past two weeks. Oops. I opened 'em up and found something extraordinarily interesting from reader Todd Querry. I found this:
This, is a 1982 Topps Sticker Album. It's well known that I love stickers and I love sticker albums and I love putting stickers in sticker albums. Now, along with the album there were...
Stickers. Forty-two different ones. Very Adamsy. Some of them are regular stickers, some are 1982 Topps inserts with the "Coming Soon" ad on the back. The condition of the stickers range from near mint to eeeccch. Stars like Rickey Henderson are in the pile along with journeymen like Juan Eichelberger. I also know for a fact I have a bunch more of these things hiding in my collection somewhere. So... here's my question:
DON'T STICK 'EM
I really need help with this one, folks... That 1980's kid inside me is yelling at me to stick those suckers in the album, but the rational part of my brain (such as it is) is insisting that this ain't 1982 and I need to grow up. There's a poll over on the side. Vote and decide the fate of these stickers.
If you vote yes, I'll dig up the rest of 'em, paste them all in and do my best to find a cheap box to rip to (hopefully) complete the set. I'll even give away the doubles and unopened packs once I'm done.
Vote no, and I'll find the rest, seperate the regular stickers from the pack inserts and store them all away with the rest of my Topps oddballs. Then I can focus on my '88 Panini album instead.
Help me out guys, this one is really gnawing at me...
(note: if Todd leaves a message saying to stick 'em, they are stuck. He gets the deciding vote in this)
