Very similar to collecting a card set but a lot less expensive since the packs of stickers went for .25 or a jumbo pack for 1.00. I only saw this book one year and never saw it again.
I did this with the 1982 Topps set as well. Topps collation standards were so poor that by the time I got my final missing card (Gary Lavelle-SF Giants), I nearly had two complete sets for that year...
