General Wacky Packages Discussion / Re: This Week in Your Collection
« Last post by Soremel on February 27, 2024, 05:10:09 PM »
What about the 3rd variation "set" where you have the regular puzzle with the Scoot with no copyright and the variation puzzle with the Scoot with copyright?? You need 2 more 16th sets!  ;)

Sufferin' succotash! How did I miss that glaring mistake?!! I'll be back in a bit... heading out to sell more platelets for Wackys!  :] Crap, that means I'm also missing the crossover variant sets containing Side A & Side B asterisks... AAAhhhhhhhhh!  >(

I would suspect you're in a small club there. Seems like the '85s get very little love, along with the '91s. Good for you, though, for this and having some unique items like that.

Think of it like the mafia. Your collecting roots have to be traced back to prove you bought these from your local quickie mart in 1985.

Buy Requests for Wacky Packages / Re: Blunder Bread items
« Last post by MoldRush on February 26, 2024, 01:08:58 PM »
Thanks for the feedback. I too have many other favorites, but not a lot of $funds$ to create such a collection for everyone of my favs. It is truly amazing on how many items contain images of Blunder bread and how many sets have this character or something similar to it.

I still collect all other WP when possible, but Blunder will always be my favorite.

You make a good point - not every title has been so abundantly reprinted, some hardly ever at all.  Goes back to the theory that Topps has underutilized titles for which they lack high-quality scans.  Though Iím thinking that may not explain every title thatís been ignored time and time again.  For maximum iconic status, Blunder Bread is right up there with all the greats.

Not super crazy, but cutting some of the titles out of one of the fabric swatches and selling as "rare patches". Such care taken in the cutting too.

That is pretty funny.  I wonder if they cut them out when they were a kid and using scissors was a skill they hadn't quite mastered yet.

and CVS and Family Dollar, which have stores everywhere.
All this retail support from four giants just dried up?
Wish we could see all the data on the past sales


CVS and Family Dollar were dumping grounds for Wacky Minis. They were offered very low price product long after it was released.

This doesn't look good for Wacky Packages if items like this and Old School stay in stock for this long!
Is there still a limited time window for placing orders?  I thought production doesnít even start until Topps knows its final prepurchase numbers.  Isnít that the main reason it takes a couple months before buyers get their cards?

Here's more typos in the checklist on pg. 1:

*"Die-Cut",
*"Pattern (Mod Rad) background w/black border...",
*"Artist Autograph Set...".

In both the Terrible TV and Ridiculous Reads sections:

*"Pattern (Mod Rad)...",
*"Silver Border" (?),
*"Red Border" goes between "Silver..." and "Printing Plate...".
