I was at a friend's house yesterday and his daughter introduced me to some foul flavored jelly beans inspired by Harry Potter books. For some reason, it made me think about something I was obsessed with in the early 70s as a child: Wacky Packages. I hadn't thought about these things for 25 years. I loved Wacky Packages. Today, I found this site and I am trully enjoying some nostaglia. Wacky Packages were great with the combination of the humor and art. They appealed to my warped sense of humor. Thanks for the site and the trip down memory lane. The pleasure those stickers gave me in my youth is unmeasurable (and I never even attached them to anything unless I had an extra). I wish I still had my collection.

We just found 24 of the old stickers from our childhood days boy the memories it brought back. Was surprized to see they made a web site. Great job!

This is a real blast from the past! Thank you for taking the time to put this site up -- and for the clean scans. There just happened to be a candy store across from the Catholic grade school I went to in Chicago - around the mid 70's., There you could acquire any number of Topps cards (I always gave the gum away), my favorite of which was the Wackys. These would cause me to laugh uncontrollably, and were just one of the influences that sent me on the way to an art career. And to that I am eternally grateful. It was a pleasure to reminisce for a bit so I thank you for the trip back. I'm also graetfull to Topps for the laughter - I'm sure it wasn't the sports division that was responsible for the Wackys! Also thank them for keeping their legal dept. from going after your site. Someone there is watching out for you. You have been blessed!

Love your site. I was taken back to about the 6th grade! I remember kids used to paste these on notebooks, paper book covers and locker doors. I found some about a year ago in an antique and collectable store. Great job on your site!

I had to remove all of my childhood goods from my mother's house before a move overseas, and I just opened them and found all of my Wacky Packages from the 70's! Of course, their significence was lost on my children, but what a trip down memory lane for me...I spent all my paper route money from delivering the Miami News on Wacky Packages...great web site!

Thank you, Greg Grant, for doing a wonderful job cataloguing and displaying all of the Wacky Packs!
I can't wait to share all of the fun with my kids when they get home from school, now that I am reliving my childhood as I look at all of the Wacky Packs from my past. What a treasure museum of pop culture you have created. Thank you, thank you, very much!

I just realized as I'm going through my collection that I have some of those silly mini posters as well.

OK all you collectors, I'm looking to sell. Someone mentioned this website to me and I remembered I KEPT EVERY PIECE in a steel air tight box. I was an avid colector when I was a kid (30 years ago to be exact). I really dont care to keep them any more. I'm currently researching the value of these stickers and puzzle pieces (and in some cases I was silly enough to keep the original wrappers!...why I did I have no idea)just to get rid of them. THEY ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION!
I'll be posting another message soon.
I live near Santa Monica, CA. Getting ready to move and I stumbled upon them after all these years.
I really dont have an acurate count but I'm guessing a couple hundred, mostly from the early years.
I need to go through and see what I have.

Your site really brought back allot of great memories...I am working on a site that deals with stuff that happened "Back in the Day"....I too remember collecting them and putting them everywhere my Mom did not want me to...Keep up the good work!!
