is this not the stuff with the cards that had the horrible versions of products? like instead of 'tide' it was 'tied' and the laundry was in knots? or is this something else entirely?

Those were great, used to be a tough decision whether to buy these or baseball cards. I had my 3-ring binder loaded with those. I still have a really old fishing tackle box my dad gave me (early 60's era style) with some of those stickers on it. From the 1970's YICKS Cough Drops, Bone Ami bone polishing cleanser, Hostile Thinkies, STD Stop Traffic Dead Oil Shortage, Mop & Glop, Daffy Baking Powder and Lipoff Cup-a-Slop I think they came 10 stickers to a package and remember used to trade the duplicates to by brother and sister.

My favorit baseball player was Buddy Bell and besides Baseball Cards my brother and I bought Wacky Packs! In fact, I remember 1975, or maybe earlier when "Bad Aide" was the hardest one to get. Anyone remember that?! Maybe it was '72, '73 or '74. I was looking out my elementary schoo windo and noticed one on a girls binder and took it! Then I sold it to my cousin Lindy's girl fried and they thougt it was lame since it didn't look new and how stuff taken of the border! How can I remember that? So very cool!

A friend and I were just talking about Whacky Packs yesterday! Oh, man, they were funny. If you were a kid. The stickers would bond to whatever you put them on and would NEVER... COME... OFF Whacky Packs were popular with kids attracted to the (innocently) subversive, like a 70's equivalent of the 50's MAD magazine. I knew a kid whose parents wouldn't let him have them as they were deemed a deviant influence. Apparently they were very reverential of household cleaning products. I was and still am glad that my parents weren't so limited in their ability to think analytically. BTW, as of about five years ago, there was an old website somewhere where Whacky Packs stickers were archived. Might still be up. Worth a Google.

These were absolutely the best thing ever in the 1970's

These were popular in the 70's not the 80's. In the 80's we had Garbage Pail Kids
