Hostess Chips WWF Stickers

RewindYouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems. These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

In 1987, there was a Hostess potato chips promotion where you'd get a WWF sticker in each bag. My buds and I bought a bag a day collecting these things. I always bought hot bbq and I remember the small bags were only 45¢.

Those were the days.

I think I still have some of those stickers in an old box here somewhere. Great times!

I'm not sure how many of those I managed to collect when I was a kid, but I had a bunch of them. I think they've all been lost now, wish I knew where they were.

The Cars should be added to this list. I think Bryan Adams doesn't belongs there

Hello
I work for Habitat for Humanity NS ReStore we have had a donation of Westlemania stickers, simpsons, 80's bands, movies, and basketball sticker/mini cards. They all have come out of hostess pototoe chip bags in the 80" any ideas of value?
