Shawn's Comments: These are from the set of Topps 21 Jump Street Sticker cards released in 1987. There were 44 stickers in the set, most of which featured everybody's favorite Pirate Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) who was a huge star after he was cast as Officer Tom Hanson on this show.
In true Topps fashion there were two separate types of card-backs, ones with trivia and ones with puzzle pieces. Below is an example of both, as well as the "What your completed puzzle will look like" card back.
It took 24 cards to complete the puzzle, so it was actually pretty big. I'm not all that familiar with Topps sticker card puzzles, but from what I've seen in the Garbage Pail Kids sets there are usually only 9 cards needed to complete the puzzle. I was never quite sure what you were supposed to do with the completed puzzle though. I guess you could tape them to a piece of poster board or something.
Just for the hell of it here's some pointless 21 Jump Street Trivia:
-Holly Robinson who play Officer Judy Hoffs actually sang the theme song to the show with Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise on back-up vocals (they shouted "Jump")
-Jump Street was one of Fox's first big hits and it lead off the Sunday night line-up, a spot that the Simpson's took over and has held ever since.
-Richard Grieco (Officer Dennis Booker) was actually as popular if not more than Johnny Depp on the series, even garnering a spin-off series that lasted for one season. Currently Richard Grieco isn't buying any islands, so I think Johnny Depp has beat him in the popularity polls of late.
