Wacky Packages

Wacky Packages, originally uploaded by manlyartjpc.

To celebrate 35 years (holy crap) of Topps Wacky Packages stickers, they have put out this awesome collection of art from Series 1-7 in its entirety. It inspired me to set up this shot with some of my Wacky Packages stickers. Yes folks, they still make them and I still have to pick up a few packs every once in a while.

If you were a kid in the 70's, or just like well done gross art and sophomoric humor (who doesn't?), this is the book for you. It's really interesting, Pulitzer Prize winning writer/artist Art Spiegelman (Maus) was a gag writer for Topps for 23 years. Also, the famous pulp artist Norm Saunders regularly did art for Wacky Packages. It's a crazy, wonderful world ain't it?

You can get the book ... here.



I need that book, I still have a bunch of mine from the 70's!

Yeah, it's really cool. I actually just got an uncut sheet of stickers from 1980.

Here's something wacky - an online comic about an artsy potato!
