Roy of the Rovers, and Tiger.
(Which I couldn’t get because my parents made me get Look and f*****g Learn).
I found a nigh on complete ProSet collection in the loft the other year. Not worth a whole lot but a had a good laugh at some of the haircuts!The ProSet football cards of the early 90s. Although Oxford were thoroughly under represented with only Ceri Evans and Mark Stein, despite being a second division/tier team at the time.
I used fabric pens to make my own espana 82 sweatshirt, with a picture of the orange. It was bloody awful.I didn't do Panini for the '82 world cup but I did have the Ladybird book and it felt like I watched every game! Loved the Brazil team that year, Zico, Falcao, Socrates, Junior, Eder! Some great games, Scotland v Brazil, Northern Ireland v Spain, England v France, and strangely Hungary v El Salvador!
I remember being more upset at Italy beating Brazil than England not qualifying, but then wanted to be Paolo Rossi so I moved on quick!!!
My first, and possibly my favourite world cup to date and I've still got a mug at my mum's I think!

Super Striker maybe?Used to get Shoot annuals every Christmas and still have most of them from the seventies and eighties. Got quite a few Roy of the Rovers as well. The league tables wer great until the little tabs ripped. One of my regrets was not keeping hold of the soccer stars sticker books, first one was 1968 but moving around made that difficult. Collected them for about 10 years. Still have a magnetic football game from the late sixties and the board game Wembley, about the FA cup. The other game I had was where you hit the players head to kick the ball, but cannot remember the name. Talking of memories, I could probably mention 90% of the cup final teams squads from the late sixties through to the late eighties but would be hard pushed to name 5 players from last years final.
