Description
In 1974 Topps' sold more Wacky Packages than baseball cards. Wacky Packages were parodies of every day products. Instead of Jello, it was Jail-o. Instead of Wheaties, it was "Weakies". They always had freaky or funny looking characters on the sticker parodies. They have made a comeback as Topps has released a brand new series 1 in May of 2004. They are for sale along with other parody related items at www.sillysupermarket.com.

No one has anything to say about Wacky Packages? Cheese! Well, I collected the things in elementary school, and one of my earliest memories was when we 6th graders took the traditional walk up the street to the junior high to see what life would be like up there. Well, the janitor had a can of Bon-Ami cleanser and I remember thinking "I have that Wacky Package sticker!" I must have had hundreds of the things at one time, and now they have books that have every one of them pictured. Very cool.

I loved Wacky Packages! To this day I still call some products by their WP name instead of the real one:. Rice A Phony, Dampers, Ajerx, Mutts juice

I wasnt into baseball cards but begged for wacky cards every chance. I had stacks of them and several series. Till my brothers friend got a new bbgun and had him trade all my cards for an old bbgun. I didnt find out the were gone till just that reason till we were all adults he then apologized. I had always wondered where my cards went to. Missed them. Do they still sell them?

Kim: Topps still makes Wacky Packages. New paody products as well as reprints of the 1974 and on early series. No more bubble gum, unfortunately. Try topps.com to order if stores don't have them.

Of the original 1974 series, the hardest sticker to find was Run Tony Shells (Ronzoni Macaroni shells) with a mafia scene. Over a hundred packs bought, never came across it.

Hey Rob, run tony shells was pulled from production but left on the checklist. That's why it was hard to find.

Thanks for letting me know, Ted. 44 years sure went by fast since those stickers first came out.
