Wacky Packages
« on: July 18, 2003, 08:01 AM »
Anyone remember these? It got me thinking after I saw the Garbage Pail Kids thread.  These were great IMO.  I still have some of mine from the early '70's as well as the early '80's.  It seems Topps used to issue these every 10 years or so.  Heres hoping they make a future return.

I've never heard of these in my entire life.  I had to do a search on Google, and came up with this site...

http://www.wackypackages.org

If these were made today, I could see several lawsuits taking place.

I am definitely feeling old here.

Okay well now that was a trip down memory lane like Star Wars could never provide. Damn I want to be  a kid again.

BTW I'm 28 and I can picture myself collecting those when I was 7-9 so they aren't that old. Then again they did start in the early 70's. ;D
