I have to agree with this one. I loved those sticker books, and I almost completed an entire book. They had them for more than one season, so I'll have to dig mine out and check. The one thing I remember was a page dedicated to the top HR hitters of all time. Those stickers were thicker and sort of shimmered. I think there was an All-Star page on the very last page of the book.
My Grandpa used to buy packs and packs of cards, then give me all the gum and all the Reds players. Now I try to buy cards for my son, and they end up costing an arm & a leg. My God, they've gotten to be expensive.
