WACKY PACKAGES 'PACKS' FROM THE 1970's
Wacky Packages—a series of collectible stickers featuring parodies of consumer products and well-known brands and packaging—were first produced by the Topps company in 1967, then revived in 1973 for a highly successful run.
For the first two years they were published, Wacky Packages were the only Topps product to achieve higher sales than their flagship line of baseball cards. The series has been relaunched several times over the years, most recently to great success in 2007.
Known among collectors as “Wacky Packs,” Series One through Series Seven ran from 1973 and 1974. Wacky Packages are still available, and are sure to amuse collectors and fans young and old. Fun stuff!!
