Chet and Gary,
  Thanks for your responses.  I don't remember ever buying GROO stickers,
but now I'll have to sort through my collection.
  I thought Gary may have it right, because I do have Death of Groo.  It's
the #51 that has me confused.  Did I miss 50 other items, whatever they are?
  Anyway, I'll have to take some time from my Spring chores and get that
sticker back where it belongs.  Thanks for giving me some targets.
  I know what "jeep" means!  It's a derivative of GP which stood for General
Purpose vehicle, which were funny, square, olive drab colored cars during
WWII and after.  The forerunner to the HMMWV.
  Coincidentally, "Jeep" is also part of my namesake.  E.C. Segar
(1894-1938) created a comic creature with extraordinary powers called
"Eugene the Jeep".  When I was named, "Eugene" was as popular as "Britney",
"Jennifer", or "Condolleezza" are today.
Gene the Hummer
