Welcome to Tom's Wacky Packages Page!
Wacky Packages were those cool Topps bubble gum stickers that made fun of supermarket product brands and commercials of their time. I remember buying Wacky Packages for 5 cents a pack at the local convenience store (7-Eleven) when I was a kid back in the 70’s, collecting and trading them with friends. Wacky Packages were so popular back then. I used to see them stuck on lunch boxes, notebooks and bikes at school. Some people called them “antiques for kids” or “a fad that lasted a lot longer then expected”. They are fun to look at, fun to collect and really bring back memories of products that defined a great era.
|While most of you probably remember the Wacky Packages of the 70’s (the original series), it is important to know that Wacky Packages actually dated back to 1967 and that Topps continued to produce and market them well into the 1990’s! There is more to Wacky Packages then just the stickers too. There are non-sticker items like posters, tattoos, clothing, banks, placks, toys, jewelry and other Wacky Package related merchandise sold over the years.|
Today there are still many people collecting Wacky Packages which has recently become much easier through online auctions and wacky pack web pages. The internet has also provided us with more information about Wacky Packages then was ever known before. Wacky Packages have become more valuable over the years since so many of the original stickers did not survive. Even competitors of Topps Wacky Packages, Fleer Crazy Labels, Crazy Covers, and others are also in demand.
This web page will hopefully bring back some memories as well as provide useful information about Wacky Packages for general interest or collecting. I hope you enjoy this site as much as I enjoyed creating it! If you have any questions, comments or just want to tell some wacky stories, send me an e-mail or post it on the Wacky Packages Message Board.
