In 1973 I had a pant suit made of wacky packages material. I wore it to school on photo day. They called me wacky package girl. I took all of my wacky packages and stuck them in a book so I'd never lose them. I didn't know one day they would be worth so much. I have about all of the series 1thru 8 and they are all stuck in a book.If stuck in a book can they still have value??? The book is a photo album type book for keeping momentos.

I still have around 1200 Wackies from the first 16 series that I collected as a kid. I've added about 3000 more since. They are without a doubt my fondest memory of childhood. I was obsessed with them from the first day I laid eyes on them. I became the Wacky Kingpin of my Catholic school. We traded back and forth daily; I eventually hoarded every single sticker I could get from everyone. I knew even then that they were a classic. I've kept them in flawless condition for almost 30 years. I guess they're probably worth some dough; but I'm not sure I could ever part with them. Love the website; keep it up!

To a neat guy: Greg, your site is an amazing archive, not to mention beautifully and thoughtfully done. The hobby has you to thank for maintaining such a dynamic and sophisticated tribute.
You have great visual info, but I especially like the anecdotal stuff. How about adding a section for Wacky Package references in contemporary writing and/or art?
