My dad was an artist for Topps and worked on Wacky Packs. He drew the comics on the backs of the sports cards too. I used to go to the office with him in Brooklyn in the 70's when I was a kid. Knee deep in baseball cards...but I couldn't wait to get my hands on the wacky packs!!! I still have a lot of them. I think some of them never even made it to market. Have a bunch of the poster sized Wacky Packs too. Thanks for bringing back great memories.

When I was 7 years old the first die-cut series came out. One of my friends gave me a Wacky Pack, and it was Weakies. I still have it to this day. So once he gave me that Wacky Pack I was hooked. I colleced all the die-cut series, and every single series after that. When I was done collecting the last series in the 90's I was wondering when or if topps was going to come out with more, but in 2004 they came out once more. Then I started all over agian. I have every single Wacky Pack erver made. I can't wait for the 4th series to come out.

I too collected them as a kid in '73 & '74. Had them completely covering my closet door. I used to save my allowance and buy them by the box for $2.40, so I must have had a lot of extras. No idea when they were thrown out. I did save the closet door for a while after it was replaced! I never thought they would be so easy to find and buy today -- at a premium. So now I've re-collected the original series 1-10, as well as the new series 1-3 (just cuz I could), but they don't compare to the old ones. They seem to be too busy and complicated. The originals were usually a much simpler gag. And of course the fantastic artwork of Norm Saunders (RIP. I wonder if his tombstone is wacky?) Although the Cannibal's Soup from the upcoming 2006 series 4 could pass as a classic in my opinion. We'll see about the rest of the series...

I loved the W.P. since I was a kid.
Even today some 35 years later I still use them to cheer myself up.
Other adults don't see the humor and
say I'm crazy, even regressing. Believe it or not in this screwed up
world Wacky Packages keep me sane.

I always loved wackys.I had all 1973-76 series 1-16 up until 1998.Then my Dad without knowing what he was doing threw them out.I still haven't gotten over that.So now I am trying to buy them all back a little at a time.But it's a little harder than when I was a kid when I'd take my 25 cent allowance every week and buy 5 wacky packs.So if you have some to sell email me what you have and how much you want.Thanks in advance.
