I remember storing all my cards in those Topps Football card lockers from the late 70s

Looks like another solid week!

Yeah, that's a pretty cool idea! Maybe do it with the wacky packages titles? I'll pass it along to some people I know...

Sometimes the creators would choose a parody title only to abandon it in terms of working the gags off of it.  In this case, what does a “lip bomb” missile concept have to do with being cheap?  Just an odd thing I never really thought about until this thread put each title under closer scrutiny.
Maybe because it's so cheap it's a bomb?

Got my Amazon order of 2 twin packs today.   opened one of them, leaving one sealed.   Interesting that each title comes in its own sealed pack, and it doesn't take more than a flashlight to figure out what is inside.   What are sealed titles going for vs opened titles?   just curious.
there is no market for sealed ones exactly for the reason you called out, there is no mystery on what is inside and it is not like it is more minty inside the wrapper.

General Wacky Packages Discussion / Re: 4th series checklist

Holy McGoly!   With all four titles on the same checklist this changes everything for the 4th series!   

So , the first thing we know for certain was that Winsome was replaced by Milk Foam.   No date on record.

THEN, we do have a record, of Dec 10, obviously 1973, that Freetoes was C&D'd. 

Now probably before that, Bun and Choke were C&D'd.   It looks like, according to the sheets we have on record, that Bum was replaced by Chef Boy ar Dee, and Chole was replaced by Hipton.   

But then later for some reason, Chef that replaced Bum was replaced by Mess, and Hipton that replaced Choke was replaced by Windhex.

WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW.

I love this stuff.

And then on Jan 17, 1974, Gatoraid was replaced by.............?    Do we know?
Years ago I wrote a page long synopsis for the 4th series containing all the dates, titles changed or pulled that we knew of, the different sheets for 4th series and even tied in the mail-in-poster.
I’ll have to dig that up.

My recollection is that by the time Gatoraid was pulled, topps was done with 4th and was already printing the 5th, so it was never replaced (just crossed out on the master sheet)
OPC was printed after that though, and by that time almost half the 4th was c&d’d, and all replaced with duplicates of others.
