What a trip down memory lane. I'm 41, and used to collect & trade them back in 73-74. The Icecream man used to sell them out of his van. I was totally hooked on them. When a new set would come out, it was exciting.
I wish I would have have known when I was 11 that they would be worth something later in life. Very cool site.

FANTASTIC WEBSITE !! THANKS !!
I have been wondering thru 5 years of eBay if ANYBODY remembered those parody product stickers from the 1970's and here they are !!!! I did not remember the name "Wacky packages" everybody else just as enthusiastic as me!!
WHY DO WE LIKE THEM ?? BECAUSE MODERN SOCIETY SUCKS WITH ALL THE MALFUNCTIONING SOFTWARE AND JUNK PRODUCTS AND CARS WITH AIRBAGS, GREEDY LAWYERS AND ENRON THUGS. THE 1970'S WERE SIMPLER AND BETTER AND MORE RELAXING AND ITS GREAT NOSTALGIA.
BACK THEN OR RIGHT NOW, TELL YOU SOMETHING ELSE, ANY OF THIS SARCASTIC HUMOR (for 8 year olds) IS GREAT GREAT FANTASTIC LINGUISTIC PRACTICE. FRANKLY IT HELPS ROUND OUT KIDS TO SEE THE SARCASM AND THE WIT, MAKES THEM SMILE AND MAKES THEM THINK. THIS STUFF IS THE ULTIMATE CAMOUFLAGED LEARNING LESSON FOR KIDS.
NOW WHY IN THE #$&@#$^ CANT A BIG COMPANY LIKE TOPPS CANDY BRING BACK
CEREAL BOXES WITH CUTOUT MONKEES RECORDS ON THE BACK, HMMM??? TOO
MANY ENRON THUGS IN THE BOARDROOM
OBSTRUCTING THE GOOD IDEAS ? YEP !!

Wacky Packs Are Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My younger brother saved my wacky packs from total demise.
I joined the service in the late 70's. Because of my absence, my mother decided to throw out all my childhood stuff (I was a nostalgia pack rat).
After serving 4 years and returning home, I've forgotten all about my childhood stuff.
Years later, my younger brother came forward and revealed that he had my wacky pack collection. They were still in the Velveta Cheese box (perfect for holding the stickers). He gave himself a reward for saving the stickers; kept one each of the rare doubles and triples (the rare sticker that you had to spend $5.00 worth of nickels to get).
I still have that Velveta box about a third full of stickers. The usual downers that we used to dread getting like: Breadcrusts,Coverghouls,Duzn'ts,
Gadzookas,Maddie boy, etc.
Also in the box are Donruss's monster baseball players stickers. My brother never kept those for some reason.
All the wacky packs I ever collected are in a album. My brother put them in protective plastic for safekeeping. Now all I have to do is page through my collection and go through memory lane. Really cool.
