The Sun produced a sticker collection of “top soccer stars  of the English and Scottish leagues, World Cup Superstars and major trophy winners”. 

There were two pages of player stickers per team and sections for trophy winners from the previous season, Stars of the World Cup and a full fixture list for England and Scotland in the centre section.

The Spurs pages had stickers of : –  
Erik Thorstvedt
Gudni Bergsson
Pat van den Hauwe
John Polston
Paul Gascoigne
Vinny Samways
Gary Mabbutt
Steve Sedgley
Nayim
Paul Allen
David Howells
Paul Walsh
Gary Lineker
Paul Stewart

Never the squarest cut of stickers, you felt The Sun had thrown this collection together from their photo library, although it obviously didn’t stretch to one of Dunfermline Athletic’s Milos Dvizic …

As you can see, I never completed the collection, so if anyone has any other of the Spurs player stickers or ones who were linked with Spurs before or after the collection came out, we would be pleased to feature them if you could send jpg photos of them to mehstg2016@gmail.com.


So, here are the Spurs pages in the collection …
