    My first ever card collection was the WWF in 1991. It was massive at school.

    Completed the Italia ‘90 Orbis one, it was brilliant! Massive ring binder with extra info sections on stadiums, history etc was a weekly thing to build up the extra bit.

    I used to have loads of Pokémon cards as a kid. No idea what happened to them though.

    Probably be worth a fortune now, as had some crackers from the original 151 of them.

    I always remember thinking the sweets were outta date because the cards you got were from 2/3 seasons past.

    Cereal box stickers were the big 80s free gift. Weetabix, sugar puffs and Frosties.

    I was looking on ebay recently to see if I could pick up an old sticker album and a pile of stickers on the cheap, but folk on there seem to think that their 12 year old SPL stickers have somehow appreciated in value by about 800%.

    As if there's folk paying £2 a pop for a pack of stickers that cost 25p in 2007.
