Looks like the first Puzzle sketch to hit eBay is one of mine.  Here's a scan:

Just for laughs, here's the actual description that the seller has for this auction:

"here we have 84 wacky packages 1960s 1970s  8 die-cuts two are 25.00. 6 are 15.00 in the 70s. 3 are rear. 62 are not but I not shore. 9 are puzzle. one is a checklist all are  vg  see pic and good luck  there are 84 in all"

Kids, this is why it's not wise to do dope and post ebay listings at the same time. Remember... drugs are bad, mmmm-kay?!

From the first sketch to hit eBay it looks like the great Pat Chaimuang can be added to the list.

2 cards today, an update to one of my favorite OS1 cards, Lavirus, and a nice, disgusting Barbacoa taco

Thanks Patrick.  If I were a GPK fan (which I'm not), I'd also go for the two posted today, as they are very timely and fitting!

Mark, thanks for posting.  That's a super fun Wacky and was one of my favorites to sketch from the MLB series!

Thanks Joe. I noticed after i had finished it that I did it upside down, so it's extra unique.

Christmas possibility...

"Mrs. Claus's Crummy Popcorn Fish Garland"  (Parody of "Mrs. Paul's Crunchy Popcorn Fish".)

Box depicts a plate of popcorn fish with random, dead fish heads and tails protruding out of the breading.  To the right hand side in the foreground could be a young boy and girl decorating a Christmas tree with strings of the same popcorn fish garland.  As they are stringing the garland with one hand, they are holding their noses with the other, all of the while making disgusting faces.  Perhaps there could be an angel tree topper also holding her nose, as well as a pet cat and/or dog doing the same.  (If a cat is grossed-out, something most definitely must be wrong.)

The smiling face of Mrs. Claus could be located in the upper left.  A clothespin is pinching her nose shut, hence she can afford to smile.

"100% Holiday Fiasco!"

Perhaps a few other seafood ornaments could be hanging from the tree as well: lobsters, clams, crabs, seahorses, etc..

"Tis the Sea-son!"

Or...

Instead of the two grossed-out children and the "smelly" theme, there could be an old Maine fisherman (wearing a yellow slicker and hat) apparently happy as he decorates his rather bizarre tree on Christmas Eve.  Or instead of the fisherman, there could be a pair of anthropomorphic sea otters (again, enjoying themselves.)

Escuire and Esquire. I don't get the joke!



Probably my least favorite of the series.  Never saw the product, or got the gag.
