The first set of stickers released was a set of 160 and released over a period of 4 weeks in 1970. They were a set of 160 blue backed small cards, issued as sets of 32 in 5 different comics (Buster, Lion, Scorcher, Smash and Tiger). They came in sheets of 8 per comic. The problem was unless you had a good paper/milk round of very undestanding parents it was impossible to collect them all as you had to buy 5 comics for 4 weeks to collect the whole set.
There was a follow up set in Autumn 1971. These differed from this set as they had a red back.
