Thanks for a fantastic site! What great memories! For years I've been trying to remember the name of the funny cards I collected as a kid, and I just happened across a New York Times article yesterday that mentioned "Wacky Packages." I knew that was them and I am in heaven!!! When I was about 7 or so (I'm 38) my dad remodeled our basement. In a recently opened crawl space he showed me these stickers that had been stuck all over the walls and ceiling of the crawl space by the previous owners' sons. It was like a really cool and secret treasure! After that discovery I collected them for a few years, and made albums of them (which have long been lost). To this day I love looking for lost treasures, all because of that crawl space and Wacky Packages! I feel the magical wonder and enchantment of being a little kid again!

What an awesome site! When I saw the images of the mid-70s stickers, I remember that incredible feeling I used to get when seeing a new sticker for the first time. I also fondly remember how my mom would drive me around to various 7-11 stores to help me complete a series. If she were alive today, I'd have her join me in May to look for the new series.

Wacky packages have changed my life. I got the stickers in my divorce, and she got the house. THanks for the great website.

Trying to fully capture why Wacky's give me the nostalgic, magical, romantic feel is very hard to do. Part of it must be the reminder of many years ago - and visual reminders at that.
I just remember the anticipation of seeing a Wacky for the very first time. I would be almost spellbound.
Of course, there is also an innocence and the artwork is always first-rate and the humor generally so.
It just evokes fairly powerful nostalgic, magical, and romantic feelings.
Kind'a neat to have that happen to you.

My 22 year old daughter opened a package of garbage pail kids cards, and was puzzled to see a card for COACH HOTEL. Confused as to this unusual event, she showed me the card. I was blown away!!! I discussed the history and romantacism of Wacky Packages with all four of my children, and they now want to be collectors. We have all viewed the website together and spent hours rolling in laughter. I had posted all of my packages when I was young into a photo album my grandparents had given me, and that book is now a long lost treasure.
Let's all do our part and support Topps in this renewed endeavor. Three Cheers!!!
