I was watching an episode of Pawn Stars tonight and someone was trying to sell a collection of Garbage Pail Kids cards...then I remembered Wacky Packies from back in the 70's. I laughed just remembering. When I was a kid they were the coolest! I spent all available change getting them and trading with my friends. I'm in my 50's now and some of them STILL make me laugh out loud!

Hello fron Qu�bec canada!
I just recently found out that the WACKY CARDS were still around in 2011 by watching a kid and his dad unwrapping them on youtube!(reaganzilla is their channel) how cool is it that this kid can exprience WACKY PACKAGES and even cooler for his dad to share this experience with him and us on youtube! I Feel like I am 10 years old again! Keep up the good and WACKY work!

Ah, the fun of Wacky Packages. In '74 I started cutting grass so when payday came around I'd ride my bike to WaWa to pick up some Wackies. My brothers and I would trade them, and he being the older brother managed to con us two younger guys out of all of our 1st series cards. Oh, to be 12 again, and not a care in the world. That's the beauty of Wacky Packages.

I recently rediscovered my small collection of wackys after my son found them in a box in his closet. And he is about the age I was when I got them!! Brought back lots of great memories at 7-11. For example the girly mags in plain view! Now I re-addicted to wackys..

I forgot about the wacky pack days til it just popped in my head the other day. Me , my brother and my cousin used to plaster these crazy things all over our bedroom walls. Mom was like "what the f*%@ are these things and why are you decorating the walls with them?" Kind of wish I would have tossed them in with my 1970's baseball cards and still had them today. Oh well , funny.. - Jim

In 1973 I was about 9 years old and wacky packages was a large part of my life then. We loved them. I am still upset that they were thrown out when I was older and at school

This is a wonderfully done research on the field of Parody Cards. Job WELL DONE!I would also like to share this link to you as well since Fleer (Topps chief competitor) also created a similar type of Parody Cards as well and they call theirs, 1979 Fleer Crazy Label Stickers which were less known and much rarer than the Topps Wacky Packages and they only ran for one year. Their sets BTW only comprised of 68 Sticker Cards including four add-ons. Anyway here is the link: www.bubblegumcards.org/Crazy%20Labels/CrazyLabels.html

What a retro rush...
I remember back in 75 only 10 years old. Scrambling for changed, pestering my mother for money, just to catch the "Green Machine" ice cream truck.
They sold everything. They were 2 packs for a quarter.
Had to have every one of them. When you were through, you would assemble the cards to make the Wacky Pack collage.
Yep.. Good times.
