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.

Glad I had the piece of mind at age 9 to not stick my Wacky Packages onto everything in site. I have an old metal Band-Aid box filled with unstuck stickers that I've managed to keep ahold of all these years. Great site! So glad to have found it. What fun!!

I was sooo happy to find your web site. I've held onto my wackies for almost 30 years. They bring back an age of innocense in my life that left me soon after. Silly little things that they were/are, but I'll never forget them.
Thanks for your site, and the feed back of others.
