Hooray for bubblegum cards!!

After the gum is gone, you still have the bubble gum cards. Browse a collection of scanned cards from the 1960s (Ugly Stickers and Ugly Names), 70s (Monster Initials, Marvel Super Heroes) and the 80s (Pee Wee Herman). The initials series have word generators (IE only!): Love Initials, Mod Initials, Monster Initials (similar, previously). [via] [more inside]

Life Servers, Frosted Snakes,e tc...

Wacky Packages are back! Everyone's favourite stickers from childhood are back. The originals were developed by Maus author Art Spiegelman way back in 1967, with the first series of stickers being released in 1973.

Sometimes goofy, often gross, Wacky Packages were a 10-year-old's dream come true (with Garbage Pail Kids a close second).

Silly CD's bubble gum cards.

Silly CD's bubble gum cards. In the grand culture jamming tradition of Wacky Packages. This one's my favorite. It's probably only a matter of time before we see "Wiggy Websites" cards or something...

Wacky Packages!

Wacky Packages! Of course, all the cool kids called them Wacky Packs. It's odd to recognize that I was sticking these on notebooks, walls, doors and lockers when a lot of my coworkers were in diapers. I remember series 3 the best.
