Desperate Dan's Pie Eater's Club - were you a member?

Desperate Dan started his Pie-Eater's Club in June 1978. For just 40p, you were enrolled in the club and received a sheet of stickers and two colourful badges, like you see below.

By 1980 there were nearly half a million members! Those who joined also received Dan's secret password and tips for his muscle-building exercises. Were you part of the Pie-Eater's Club?
