Growing up in the early 1970’s there were many things to collect.
Petrol Stations gave away numerous free collectible coins and every one had a stamp album. Collecting rare Eastern Communist countries stamps was all the rage. My mates and I argued and fought over stamps from
and Hungary . Czechoslovakia
But one of the best things to collect was The Sun 3-D Starcards.
What could be better than them combination of football, 3-D and collectors cards.
The collector’s album of 99 pages could hold all the cards available
