The Upchuck's card is from the first Wacky Packages reunion from 1999 at the Philly show. I just got a copy from eBay, mines signed by Jay Lynch and four other Wacky luminaries.

No idea about Stenchiladas, that's new to me!

This was an accidental time capsule - I was working to clean out my mother's garage yesterday and came across an old bookbag stuffed with things from the 70s.  I KNEW I had a Jail-O plack!!!

It isn't perfect, but I love it anyway.  It will finally be next to Drowny again.  Along with it I found a '57 Nomad model kit I built with my cousin's help, some small ceramic items I painted, a bank with marbles in it, two Wizzzers and an instruction manual for tricks, a full size and a mini Slinky, and several Disney Bicentennial themed notebooks (will post some more pics later, but they're at the wrong house right now).

Too cool! What a find!

Mud is a very different one to me.  Has an almost surreal quality, canít quite put my finger on it.  I guess itís because I have a history with MAD, and the parody doesnít quite match up with anything Iíve seen.  I do like the umbrella cover for matching color scheme though.

That's right - who's in charge there? And is it possible to go over someone's head if something like this does happen?

Well, I guess I'll never know.

There are ways to flag an article for moderator attention if it's being subject to vandalism, or if someone is constantly reverting changes; and they'll lock the article for awhile. I had to do this earlier this year when somebody was regularly (like, every few days) changing Ned Beatty's article to say he had died.

« Last post by sco(o)t on October 09, 2019, 05:24:01 AM »
Each card has two backs, one being the crudlow.  For the base set, cards 1-9 make up the puzzle, card 10 is the checklist, card 11 is the whole puzzle, and 12-15 have coupon backs.

Great. Thanks.
Very limited print from 2007...  only 20 made.  This one is 19/20 signed by the great late Wacky Pack artist Jay Lynch!  This print includes his original signature as well as a mini sketch.  If interested, send me a msg and we can talk price or if you may have wackys to trade... thanks....  Jeff aka 70's_kid

Neil, I know that you said in your PM to me that this new set wasn't the old 2017 Halloween Pack 'O Fun series, but I've got a question.

Could you please tell us on the forum what the checklist of that set was (along with real names), or is even that off limits due to Topps making you shut it down in the first place? I'm guessing that you can't show pictures of them at all, but surely a checklist isn't impossible here, is it? I'd love to know what I missed out on, if I can.
