Sticker Board #1

I started collecting radio station bumper stickers in the mid 1980s, but it wasn't until 1997 that the amount of decals in the collection really started to grow significantly. That year I got internet access which made contacting radio stations cheap and easy. Up until then I was blindly sending out self-addressed stamped envelopes and hoping I got something back. Now I could email the station to see if a sticker was available and usually they mailed it right to me if I asked nicely (sometimes with other station goodies as well.) Around this time, my feeble mind decided it would be a good idea to stick a bunch of decals to large sheets of poster board. I filled up 26 of these boards which, at an average of 55 stickers per board, means I "wasted" 1,430 radio station bumper stickers. I even went so far as to get a sheet of plexiglass to display window and static stickers but then thought better of it. While I still technically own these stickers, and the boards look pretty cool, I wish I had them in their intact form. Like a giant puzzle, it was a real challenge finding and placing the stickers to fit the board perfectly. Here's the first sheet of stickers--click it for a closer view. I'll post the other 25 boards in the coming months.
