Wow! I am blown away. Not only because you've archived something that I truly loved as a kid in the 1970s, but also because, believe it or not -- just the other night while lying in bed -- I made a mental note to see whether a site like yours existed on the Web. Don't ask me how or why Wacky Packages were on my mind, but they were.
Anyway, I was looking for something completely unrelated just now (info about STP Oil Treatment), and your site came up on Google! If this isn't synchronicity, I don't know what is!
Thanks for putting together such a nice site. I will be back soon and often.

I bought Wacky Packages in the 70's. They were so popular that the stores ran out of them so fast. I remember going into stores and asking "When are you going to get more in?" I had a t-shirt with No Tips (Q-Tips) on it. I have a vague memory of my older brother buying them before I did and the were in baseball card form, not stickers? Does anyone remember these?

Like a Time warp Yeh!!!! Thought

1972 and made many a trip to the local store-walking for a mile each
way just to get em ---YEH!!!
Some are still in the garage walls
at my old mans house where I grew up The "Muleboro" (marlboro) one!

Love your website; I used to buy Wacky Packages and Star Wars cards at the store where I caught the school bus in the mid 1970s.

Morton "Moron" Salt
If you think about it, it's really a bad thing. It gives E-bay yet a tighter hold on the hobby.
I inquired about that card about a week before your artical (to janardana) I Decided to write Morton salt and told them that I would no longer buy thier products due to this issue. I also told them they should get over it. I havn't heard back. I guess I shouldn't expect to.

I actually owned a "Harm & Hammer" t-shirt when I was a kid. It was dark orange - I noticed this wasn't mentioned with the other "Wacky" t-shirts. Whether or not it was an official copyrighted T, I couldn't tell you. I remember the lettering blended with the shirt, though, in a darker orange-brown colour. I remember it was my favorite shirt at the time (circa 1975)! I also made some of my own Wacky-Packs around that time (Oil is Okay; Gory carpet cleaner, Quakey Oats, and by coincidence, Aqua-Flesh!!) Thanks for bringing back the memories, Greg.
