Hazel Mishap and Hazel Bishop lipstick. Finding an exact real product image is virtually impossible, so I figure, it's visually a missing link between the two real product images I did find.
 


I recall similar difficulty finding an exact match for Moobeline as well, must be something about cosmetics.

I’d never seen this one in 1975 and never heard of the brand, like many other products in the Wacky family.  From the name on the checklist I gathered it was some type of lipstick, but my prediction powers ended there.  Can’t say this one does much for me.  The all-red blister pack card makes for a bland parody.

I ended up buying 3 packs. I thought at worst, if all the bonus cards were even distributed at the same odds, that with 3 packs I would have a 50% chance of getting the Wonky.
 
 I still think there will be one coupon card as a bonus in each set with one ludlow and one wonky in every other set, meaning a 50% chance of a wonky. If that is the case, there might be enough around so everyone who wants one could get one without paying an arm and a leg for it.

  Might be good to have a running tally of what kind of cards everyone gets if it isn't obvious as to the odds of getting each variety.

We shall see in due time....

I'm fairly certain I've seen this card, I just can't remember the collector that had it, my recollection is somebody that used to live in New Jersey and moved to Pennsylvania but maybe he's back i'm 99% sure this is a fake card.

Some good points.  The one thing I’m grateful for with regard to game-opening nonsense is that for the most part the TV broadcasts spare us a lot of that nonsense nowadays and don’t really cut to the on-field activity until very close to the game’s start.  They also cut out the anthem which I wish they wouldn’t do, but I’ll take that trade-off any day.  I do think showing the introductions for the MLB All-Star game and World Series (first game at each venue) is a time-honored tradition and I don’t mind seeing that.

And the stats, ah where to begin?  WAR, WHIP, exit velocity, what does it all mean?  In hockey, “hits” is now a stat.  What does it measure?  And who analyzes that over a season, or a career?  Will there be an annual trophy one day for the best checker?  Conversely, a more meaningful stat like plus/minus is never talked about anymore.

How much would you pay for a Digital Super Rare BandAche (40 digital cards made)  ?   

I'd happily trade my bottle of air, without the bottle.  They'd have to throw in a Run Tony, Grime Heavy, Pupsi, and a few others to get the bottle.

Nothing wrong with pointing out how long the damn thing has been up there with the seller keeping the same moronic price and flawed "ultra rare" description!

The seller’s real name is . . . PT Barnum.

But even the sucker of all suckers shouldn’t (and apparently won’t) fall for this one.

eBay should have a rule limiting how many times you can re-list until you have to lower the starting bid by a minimum percentage.  But then, all they’re thinking of is their fee percentages on a $1,500 sale.  They’d rather wait 5 years than settle for less.
