No, no, no, you've got it all wrong - it's 17 Wacky Packages Boxes series.

Oh... good.  Because I don't have time for a Wacky mystery at the moment.  I remember some rumors early on of 17th series, 4th Series white-backs, 15th tans, full shipping cases of each series from 1 to 16 sitting in a warehouse.  All kinds of treasure hunts.  Although... the one that was true, but I don't know if anyone ever collected them all were the "GLOSSY" stickers.  Seemed like 5th would be the easiest to assemble, but I think I remember 3-6 having glossy variation fronts.  Never saw a glossy BUM & Choke, though.  And someone was after collecting double sets of everything, one for single and one for double asterisks... 

I can't imagine how hard it would be to find a PSA 10 run of all possible 3rd series sets - tanback, whiteback, glossy of each, and single and double asteristks of each, all with Spit & Span variations... no wonderbread, 1979 or English allowed.  There's an 8-set challenge for the complete-ists out there!

Probably Sneezer.

I feel like it looks like a 1985 title...

Yah, kinda looks like it was done at the same time as Snoot & maybe Rudens.  But it served as one of the few GPK-like body-fluid gags we had to get grossed out on, so I liked it.  Something about the 13th series seemed to mimic the earlier sets & get back to the look that was lost by the 11th & never came backafter the 14th.  Beastball and Sore and Ale and Dumb&Crazy and Doesn't Delight...  except the cans & packages weren't perspectively correct.  Someone else must have been doing them by then.

Wacky Polls / Re: Least Favorite Original Series

Me too. Also, I donít think itís fair to lump all of the reused titles together. Many of them feature much improved art, though many also lack characters because the bulk of the art was on the larger billboard.

I know Iím in the minority, but I was equally fascinated by wackys with realistic product art even if they had no characters and were not funny. I would have enjoyed wackys even if they were serious depictions of the original products as long as Saunders was doing the art.
toadally agree the series 2 art was significantly improved from the wacky ads.

Second, I just may have found real names here for some of them:

*Oat Bran (667),
*International Travel (686),
*Chatty Cathy (687),
*Crazy Straw (701),
*Lincoln Logs (731),
*Uncle Milton's Ant Farm (3810; before you ask, yes, this is a real product),
*Topps Gummy Bears (3812),
*Serial Killer Picture Cards (3813).
your suggestion for the CAPS has been done,

as for the rest above? no, just no.

Definitely not "very high grade", but surprised it only went for $199.  Even mid-grade, seems like a bargain for a decent starter set w/Bandache.  Terrible description, though & reminds me of some Wacky traders I once knew who also needed glasses.

Happy Unofficial Wacky Packages Day!

I guess I missed it.  But Happy (belated) Wacky Packages Day to everyone!  What's the significance of June 9th?  I don't remember that being an important date, but then again, I didn't do as well as I thought I would at Wacky Packages Jeopardy in '99, so I may have missed it.  Is it an important release-date from '67 or '73?  Norm Saunders' birthday?  The date in 2018 that Tom T. finally finished his 1-16 run?  (sorry Tom, couldn't resist the rib, and I already pick on Shoe too much).
