Wow! This is a great site. I am going to collect the new series and this site has helped me a lot. I am 13 and never heard of them until I got some free ones in a MAD mag. As soon as I saw them I new I would have to collect them.

Wow!!! This is truly an amazing site dedicated to something that was good at a time of getting through childhood and the teen years. I remember going into the neighborhood 7-11 and coming out with handfuls of Wacky Packs, I couldn't wait to rip them open to see which new ones I had. I also loved the smell of the gum in the package. Just yesterday I dug through an old box in the basement and found a bunch from 1979 so I put them in card sleeves and put them next to my KISS cards. I am now 40 and I still get a thrill from looking at these and with the new ones coming out, my 5 year old daughter wants some. Maybe she'll hang on to these like I did mine.

I am freaking. I had over 150 of those cards back in the early seventys. And in all likelihood had my little brother not gotten a hold of them and lost them, I still would and then some. I absolutely loved them. Talk about taking a walk through time. This site made my day and is heretofore permanently bookmarked.

I can't tell you how awesome this is! Saw this mentioned on news24houston and now can't get off your site. Oh, the memories these things bring back. I remember them being crazy and bad, but I had forgotten how twisted and demented they were, God how I love them! I'm now 41 and can remember when i was 11 or 12, these cards RULED!

What a fantastic website. Browsing the pictures brings tears of laughter to my eyes. Fondly remember running to the ol corner store (called convenience stores now) to get a new package of stickers. Covering my lunchbox, and dresser drawers with them. Wishing now I had a few of the originals. Commie cleanser was my favorite. Never did figure out what a flippie was.
Thanks for the rush down memory lane.

Matthew and me...sitting on his warm driveway...sunny spring afternoon after school. Looking through our grey metal index card boxes full of Wacky Packs, mouths full of bubble gum. Laughing at them and trying to imagine if they were real things our Moms would serve us or have in the house... Then choosing which of our doubles to clip to our bikes to make them sound like motor cycles...(seems sinful now)
Where is Matthew today? Where is that box of Wacky Packs?
Thanks for a great website.

Wow, what a wonderful website--a few nights ago the thought of a wacky package entered my mind and I truly felt maybe I was just dreaming, that they never really existed at all. I was 9 years old at the time they first came out and I can still clearly remember the fascination I had with them, everything about them was mesmerizing, the art, the joke behind each one and the slightly naughtiness of the humor. Anyway, I am so glad I'm not the only one out there!

Thanks for a fantastic site! What great memories! For years I've been trying to remember the name of the funny cards I collected as a kid, and I just happened across a New York Times article yesterday that mentioned "Wacky Packages." I knew that was them and I am in heaven!!! When I was about 7 or so (I'm 38) my dad remodeled our basement. In a recently opened crawl space he showed me these stickers that had been stuck all over the walls and ceiling of the crawl space by the previous owners' sons. It was like a really cool and secret treasure! After that discovery I collected them for a few years, and made albums of them (which have long been lost). To this day I love looking for lost treasures, all because of that crawl space and Wacky Packages! I feel the magical wonder and enchantment of being a little kid again!
