Great website-I had hundreds of the first few series stickers from 1973 when they first appeared. I was in the 4th grade in Watertown,NY at the time. I wish I knew what happened to them. I did manage to salvage a complete (1-66) series 1 reprint series from 1979. Thanks for the memories & keep up the good work.

I thought that Wacky Packages were the funniest thing I've seen on the market, next to Mad Magazine, which used to do something similar (and still do sometimes), and I guess also to the irritation of the companies being satirized. My favorites were "Nutlee's Quit", and "Kooloff's Snatch-A-Pak". My message to those corporate giants: Come on now! Companies have been satirized for over 50+ years, and will continue to be so in some sort of medium. Can't ya'll take a joke? :D
On a side note, before Wacky Packages, Topps also came out with "Wacky Record Labels", which were essentially parodies of popular phonograph record labels covering the top 40 hits of that time. For those born after 1982, phonograph records were the music medium long before the advent of CDs, nowadays referred to as vinyl.

Some of my fondest memories in life were collecting Wacky Packs. I remember being so excited, each time I'd buy new packs. This website is full of nastalgia. What a trip!!!

I remember collecting these cards back when I was 12. I had up to series 3 I think. When I moved out, my mother "cleaned out" my closet. Needless to say she cleaned out my collection too @#$&^!. Anyway, I found this website and have really enjoyed viewing the cards I once had and laughing over and over again. Great site and thanks for it!

Like most, i have fond memories of wacky packages. Seeing the thumbnails of the 4th series brought back a flood of memories from when i was 9 years old. Collecting them was all the rage.

I remember these stickers all to well when I was growing up in Centerville,Oh in the 70's. I remember at the time I loved the the 1st to 3rd series. My favorite was Dopey Whip, Liptorn Lava soup, and others from the first though third series. I had all of the second, third, and part of the first series.
