Wacky Packages Erasers!

Photobucket

I don't know about you, but when I was a kid Wacky Packages were the shit. My dad was a big time card collector back in the day and I used to always get a kick out of the totally immature and clever spin off's of popular products that Topps came up with. Along with Garbage Pail Kids, Wacky Packages have been making a big resurgence lately, with coffee table books and even t-shirts currently on the market. The latest offering from Topps, Wacky Packages Erasers, were just released last month and I just recently picked up a pack from Target. Let's take a look inside!

Each pack of WPE's contains three stickers and three matching collectible erasers, which are cooler than they sound. Though they do have the ability to erase your pencil errors, the erasers are molded to actually look like the product being lampooned, making them little mini replicas of those products. You'll see what I mean in a second. Check out what I got inside my pack!

We've got Spite, Zit Kat and, what's that ...

JUST FOR MOTHERFUCKIN' WOLFMEN! How fitting that a hairy horror fan like myself pulled that one, eh? Apparently this card/eraser is rare, though I don't think a little sticker or eraser can be worth more than some pocket change. Oh wow, I take that back. A quick eBay search just found one listing for the combo, with three bids and a current price of over 6 bucks! Sweet, but I think i'll keep my Just For Wolfmen for myself, so that I can get rid of those pesky and highly dangerous silver hairs.

Nope, i'll never grow up.

Now the question is, are these in the obligatory Target Trading Card aisle, or the school supplies aisle?

I work 3 miles away from one, definitely going on my lunch break ;)
