Illustration: Wacky packages


"Wacky packages are a series of trading cards featuring parodies of consumer products. The cards were produced by the Topps Company beginning in 1967, usually in a sticker format. The original series sold for two years, and the concept proved popular enough that it has been revived every few years since. At one time the product briefly outsold baseball cards." - Wikipedia

The most well-known and loved artist behind the Wacky packages illustrations, though there were many involved, is without a doubt the versatile artist Norman Saunders. We have posted about his Ugly buttons and linked to the exciting normansaunders.com already. Now we would like to direct your attention towards the Wacky packages website (not the official one). It's a nice big package full of wacky images. Enjoy!
