Shawn's Comments: These were 7-Eleven Slurpee premiums that were hidden in false bottoms of the frozen drink cups in 1985. For a period of time I wasn't sure if I imagined these or what because I couldn't find them anywhere. Anyway, around the same time there were also baseball and football player versions as well, but it's the rock ones that I remember the most. I really remember wanting very badly to get a Rick Springfield so that I could give it to my sister (she was pretty big into him at the time) but all I could get were lousy Billy Squier and Dio coins. A few months ago, when I was trying to pick the image of the coins out of my memory I could have sworn that the Dio coin changed between images of him standing calmly and of one where he was throwing the two fingered goat (devil horns hand gesture), but alas as the coin shows there were no devil horns to be found. What a wasted opportunity on the 7-Eleven premium department.
Anyway, I was so glad to finally find these and to know that I wasn't crazy and that these did in fact exist. Not only that, but they are freaking stickers to boot! I've got the entire set, and sadly there is no Rick Springfield to be found, but there is a pretty sweet Huey Lewis and the News one as well as a pretty nifty Ozzy Osbourne one.
