When I read that TOPPS was bringing these back, I was so delighted. The great memeories of my elementary schools days all came back. Then I checked out your great website and shared a few laughs with my teenage daughter. That really made my day!

I'm halfway sorry I don't have any of those from 1973. Halfway, because I enjoyed stickin' 'em too much to save 'em! I so vividly recall Sludge Brick Mix and a dozen others. So glad Topps is reintroducing them. It's actually good for America--another battleground where, I hope, Fair Use and satire can be defended against corporate bullies; and it makes us laugh!

This is very good news indeed. But I'm guessing they won't be sold at .25 per pack, as they were when I collected 1979-82. I'm glad Topps had the nerve to bring 'em back despite possible litigation.

This is so funny!! I was just trying to explain to my 14 year old daughter what these were. I cannot believe they are coming back. What a blast from the past.

Great site! I am 40 and remember loving Wacky Packages before my parents moved us out of the U.S in '73.. I used to peel the stickers and either save them in a book. or paste them on my bedroom door (my parents didnt seem to care). My Wacky Package habit tdid much to shape my sense of humor as did Mad Magazine at the time. To this day when I see a reference to Hawaiian Punch... I think Punks....
