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. In fact, 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 stickers were illustrated by the leading comics artists of the day. Artists include Kim Deitch, Bill Griffith, Jay Lynch and Norm Saunders.
