WOW! I JUST TOOK A TRIP BACK IN TIME! I AM 40 , AND REMEMBER WACKY'S LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY. WE USED TO DRIVE MY MOM NUTS BECAUSE THE STORES ALLWAYS SOLD OUT OF THEM. WE COLLECTED THEM LIKE BASEBALL CARDS. (THEY WERE'NT WORTH ANY THING IF THEY WERE PEELED OFF)! I READ IN THE NEWSPAPER THAT TOPPS IS STARTING A NEW SERIES OF WACKY PACKIES. HOOO RAAAYYY!!!

Great site! I am 40 and remember loving Wacky Packages before my parents moved us out of the U.S in '73.. I used to peel the stickers and either save them in a book. or paste them on my bedroom door (my parents didnt seem to care). My Wacky Package habit tdid much to shape my sense of humor as did Mad Magazine at the time. To this day when I see a reference to Hawaiian Punch... I think Punks....

What a terrific website. I was sharing some gum with my nephew who had a package of Bazooka gum...the gum reminded me of these Wacky stickers from the past...I tired to tell them about these stickers but it did no justice. I just could not remember what they were called...hence great website. Looking over the cards shown and laughing all over again like the first time I saw them brings back great memories of the way things were when I was kid.

I remember collecting these in 5th grade, in 1973! I never stuck them on anything and kept them in perfect condition. They're still all like that! They just don't smell like gum anymore! My friends would eat all the gum: I just wanted the stickers. I remember lining them up all over the floor. I have around 715 from 3rd to 12th series. The most I have of one is 11 Cheapios! Thanks for all the info. on this great website.

I'm 40 years old going on 41 and I have two unused stickers from a reissue of Wacky Packages. I also bought the book on Wacky Packages. I remember Hired Root Beer, Neveready battery, Armour Hot Dogs, etc., etc. Now I hear that they're coming back in June with all new parodies on everyday products.

Well, I'm only 31, but that makes me one of those kids who collected the reissue series. I can clearly remember the excitement of seeing that box down at the local convenience store (sometimes blue packs...sometimes green...sometimes even the red ones). There was something downright magical about it! Sadly, I never ONCE saw a yellow 2nd series reissue pack as a kid! I still don't have one. THIS IS A GREAT WEBSITE!

I was 10 years old in 1973 and collected these like a fiend. These were a big hit at my school. I also remeber Partridge Family cards being very popular years earlier. These were the first cards I actually cared about. I couldn't bear to stick them on things. I just wanted to keep them and I did. I still have my complete Series 1-3 with a bunch of multiples and Ludlows. I may sell some duplicates on eBay. Love those Wackies.
