    Some card / stickers and other cards from my childhood, not a complete set of Wacky Packages ( I wish ). And some other things I stashed away from my youth. The Wacky Packages are from around 1974 or so even though there aren't any dates printed on them.

      Thank you for your interest BOGIE262. I'm sorry, but this is one of my pieces from my childhood that I've held on to for many years, and I'm not quite ready to let go of it yet. Maybe someday. Size? About as long as your average house key, maybe a little longer. Where was it made? I haven't a clue, there are no maker's marks that I can see.

      Wacky Packages were first released as a series of punch-out adhesive cards (referred to as die-cuts) that didn't sell too well in the late 60s. They showed up again as a series of stickers in 1973 and immediately sold like hot cakes. They released 16 series of them from 1973 to 1976. If my memory is correct, you have some stickers from series 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 there (1973-74). You don't have anything rare or valuable in terms of money in that lot, so I wouldn't bother selling them. Keep them and enjoy the memories.

      I got heavily into re-collecting WP stuff as an adult about 15 years ago...stickers, die cuts, posters, even a couple of the original paintings. After a couple years, I burned out on it. I ended up just keeping the handfull of stickers my older brother had saved from 1973. I would have kept a piece of the art - because some of them are spectacular - but they were getting too expensive for me.
