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.

Found my stash, which my Dad tried and tried to convince me not to spend my allowance on back in 1973!

I just found out early this morning that the father of a childhood friend of mine with whom I grew up in Northeastern Wisconsin had a stroke. I have been thinking a lot about my friend, Noah, today and reminiscing about our many �youthscapades� together back in the �70s. By accident, I came across your website. Your �best of� pages brought tears to my eyes as I remembered how Noah and I collected these same Wacky package stickers and incorporated the Wacky product names in our own daily vocabulary. It brought me back to a time when we were kids, happy to simply play outside in the snow or ride our bikes to the candy store. It all seemed so uncomplicated back then; we never could have imagined that those omnipresent parents, who forbade us from putting the stickers on our bedroom furniture, might one day no longer be with us.

The feeling I get when I look at these stickers can't be described in words! My brother, sister and I collected them as kids. We'd line them up on the floor and marvel at how cool they were. I remember how excited we'd get to buy new packs, and how we'd compare and admire our collections. I also loved the way they smelled, the feel of the waxy wrapper, and the bubble-gum. LOL! What wonderful memories...
Thanks for helping me relive those childhood days -- your site rocks!!!

Truly unforgettable! What a great Website (very informative and professional). I felt like I did when I was a child looking at my cards...all lined up on the floor, carefully inspecting each picture with giddy pleasure! I absolutely LOVED my Wacky Packages and I'm happy to see there are still Wacky Zealots out there!

What memories! Great site! I am 36 yrs old and remember like it was yesterday going to the local five-and-ten (do these even exist anymore?) to buy these weekly back in 1973-74. I took all my wackys and pasted them in a notebook back in '79 which has since been long-lost during a move. Thanks loads for the chance to reminisce!

I am 38 years old, but I remember Wacky Packs like it was yesterday. My brother & I loved them. Unfortunately, I stuck all of mine & they are gone forever.... :(

holy crap! I can't believe what the original art is going for! I also can't believe my favorite underground artists were the ones doing these way back when...
I've got a stack of a hundred or so from the late 70's sitting in a shoebaox somewhere...
Good site, had no idea...

I started collecting wacky packages in 1975, about the time that the 9th and 10th series were issued. Once in a while, someone would bring a card to school from the 3rd or 4th series to trade. This was a big deal! Cards from the 1st or 2nd series were somewhat of a legend...you knew about them, but rarely ever saw one. I look at the cards from those early series on ebay now and have the same excitement, 30 years later.
