Wacky Packages - Hostage Cupcakes, 1967

Wacky Packages - Hostage Cupcakes, 1967
Topps Chewing Gum, Inc.

First appeared as part of an early die-cut series.
When Wacky Packages were revived as stickers in 1973, Hostage was part of Series 1.
It has always been one of my favorites. Even the swirls of icing crack me up.

I love Wacky Packages! Collected them when I was a kid. I wish I still had those. I have some more recent ones and 2 books with some of the older images.

They were a special part of my childhood, too.
At the time they were created, the guy who painted them did so anonymously, like any Topps artist; I'm happy that it's been widely circulated on the internet that the classic ones were painted by Norman Saunders.
