This stuff is great. I can remember my brother and I saving our 60 cents allowances for the week so we could go to the store on Saturday to buy a dozen packs (5 cents a pack!) a piece. We had those things on our school notebooks, our bed headboards, I even think we stuck them on the family car. Thanks for helping to bring this back to life and giving us a place to relive some great memories!

I can't believe Wacky Packages made a comeback.My brother and myself did everything we couldto get some money and always bought Wackys together to compare and look for ones we needed to complete sets.
Now we do it online and have gotten some rare cards and uncut die sheets.Thanks for bringin' back some of the greatest memories of my life!!

Great memories! I just wonder how it is that I have a box full of 1970's Mad Magazines and all my Fisher-Price toys, but no one thought to save my Wacky Packs. I could never even bring myself to use the stickers because I thought they were so special.

WOW!!!Talk about old school.I remember as a kid growing up in Brooklyn buying packs of wacky packages at the grocery store with my friends. We use to go home and stick them on the refrigerator door. Our moms did'nt mind. as a matter of fact ,one of my friends mother never did remove any of the stickers from her frig. that was 27 years ago. It brings us fond memories when we go together to visit her and "still" see them there. Its like stepping back in time...

Wow! What great memories this brought back. Like some other folks mentioned already, I wished I had kept mine. I didn't think I was very hip while growing up in the early 1970's, but after looking back on the Wacky Packages web site I think I was pretty hip after all, and I really caught on to the subversive and sarcastic humor in those little packages. Thanks for the great memories. You made this jaded 41 year old feel much younger, great site.

It seems that every wacky website I go to talks about the age group of wacky collectors these days are 30-40. The funny thing is, I remember these cards from my childhood, sometime around the years of 1986-1989 (not sure when exactly), and I loved them! I just ordered some on Ebay. But could you help me with one thing? Which wacky series would I have seen back then? It seems all the series I come across are much older.

I love looking here at this site for info and just to see all my favorites and the ones I unfortunately missed. I am so mad at myself for not keeping all the boxes, wrappers and checklists I had when I got each new case!!! WHO KNEW?? At least I had the good sense not to peel and stick my collection. Keep up the great work here, I never get tired of looking at these, even 30 years later!!
