1986 Rock Stars

The 1986 Rock Stars were a Brazilian Sticker set that featured many of the Rock & Pop artists of the 70s and 80s. Within the set you can find both band and solo cards of Motley Crue, Metallica, Van Halen, and Twisted Sister.

These stickers are extremely tough to source and many that you find will not have backs.

During this era of Brazil stickers, backs were peeled off and put into albums. These stickers are also often miscut and deal with staining.

Most Valuable Cards

Motley Crue #9/10

While the first-ever Motley Crue card to showcase the band was in 1984, the solo rookie cards were first present in 1986. Nikki Sixx is the only member to have a dual sticker. While the other members have single panels. 

In 1985 Motley Crue had just released Theatre of Pain which featured hits like Smokin’ in The Boys Room & Home Sweet Home. 

Nikki Sixx #11/12

Tommy Lee #15

Nick Mars #16

Vince Neil #19

Steven Tyler #29/30

While Aerosmith has an earlier release in the 1978 Sgt. Pepper release, this is the first solo card of lead singer Steven Tyler. 

Besides fronting Aerosmith Tyler spent a few years as one of the judges of hit show American Idol and recorded a solo country album.

Metallica #85/86

Metallica has an earlier Album card in 1984, but these were the first cards to showcase the faces of band members. 

Three rookies are in the set, the full band (#84/85), Lars Ulrich #88, and James Hetfield. The Hetfield is actually an error card as the back mentions Kirk but uses a picture of James. 

This set would also be the only cards to feature Cliff Burton before he passed away. In September of 86 Cliff had passed away when the Metallica bus crashed in Sweden.

Metallica (Lars Ulrich) #88

Kirk Hammet (James Hetfield) #89

Bon Jovi

1986 was a pivotal year for the Band. With the release of Slippery When Wet came the singles: Living on a Prayer, You Give Love a Bad Name, and Wanted Dead or Alive. Bon Jovi has an earlier Rookie card within the 1985 Wonder Bread Rock Stars set. It’s quite common to find in comparison to the 1986 Rock Stars. 

Jon Bon Jovi, the lead singer, has his first solo appearance in the set. 

Jon Bon Jovi #158

Bon Jovi #159

Sammy Hagar (Van Halen) #178

In 1985 David Lee roth would leave Van Halen to pursue a solo career. Later that year Sammy Hagar would perform with Van Halen for the first time at Farm Aid. 

Many Van Halen fans are split over Roth vs Hagar. Both are featured in the set, however this is the first Van Hagar card.
