Love this title, always have, just for the memories alone.  I recall getting the 10th series
when it first came out, getting packs down at the local pharmacy/grocery store
down the Cape where I spent many summers.  I even remember where I was
in my family's house down there when I was opening the packs.
Thereís nothing like that personal connection to individual series that you remember with some clarity.  Like most, I love all of 1-16, but the sentimental favorites will always top my list because of that connection, even though I only remember a fraction of those particular series.  Beyond that, I missed not only entire series but runs of series!  10 to 12, never saw a single sticker back in the day.  Still canít figure out how that could have happened.

Remember the good ol' days when eBay charged you a listing fee that was based on your starting price?  It would make people think twice before listing something at an extravagant price.

I remember the days when you could post your email address (or even have it as your user id), and get in touch with other ebay members - that was the good old days to me.......  Now, we can't know who we're dealing with, and ebay gets a cut of pretty much everything sold on the secondary market, so they don't need listing fees anymore.

I will be attending with my name tag from last year.

I have but a couple OS extras that I will likely bring, including a filler Choke Wagon if anyone needs. Most of you don't, more than likely, but I figured I would mention just in case. I will likely bring other trade bait as well. I'll have to search my "stock".

Limited funds, so I'm probably just gonna upgrade in this show. Or, maybe I'll buy some puzzle pieces. I don't know.

Hope to see y'all there.

Master Lists / Re: Wacky Packages Postcard Sets Master List

Pat,

I noticed two things about the Wacky Halloween Postcards.

*Two of the parodied products - Ghostess Fright Pie - A-a-pple and Cracker Drac - aren't candy products (the first is a pie (pastry) in reality and the second is candy-coated popcorn and peanuts in reality),
*One of the postcards - Mellow Cup - doesn't have a horror theme; instead, it has a 1960s theme.

Pretty interesting, huh?

Sweet! Maybe I can dig mine up...

It's from the 2013 April Fools Wacky Packages comic. I'll try and post a scan of the cover soon.

Dan gave me a few packs of those. What a cool thing. That dude oozes talent.

Card form rocks!  The Bizarro card set is cool, too.

Sell Wacky Packages / Re: Wrappers and Boxes

I have never seen a box reproduction that looks real in hand. Not saying it couldnít be done, but Iíve seen no evidence that it has been. I think it would be difficult to make fakes that could fool knowledgeable, experienced collectors.
You are over-estimating the number of people that can identify fakes.  I remember a pile of Duane fake boxes at a show years ago and watching collectors marvel at them having no idea they were fake.

I hope everyone wears one to the show! I've met very few of you in person, so these would help tremendously!
