Sell Wacky Packages / Re: 2010 - 2013 Wacky Halloween Postcards Limited Edition Sets
« Last post by bigtomi on February 21, 2019, 02:58:45 PM »
he just changed his screen name to vintage-trading-cards
I updated my post above to have the correct link now.
For convenience:
Can anyone please give me the dates of release for the 2011 Wacky Packages Erasers so that I can add them to the Wacky Packages Wikipedia article?

I know that the first series (with a yellow wrapper) was released in March and the second one (with a light blue wrapper) was released in October. I just need the dates of each month.

Also, I'd like to please have the dates of release for the 3-ring binder sets of the 16 OS and the imaginary "Series 17" that came out in May, July, September and November 2013 and how many binders were in each set. Again, this is also for the Wacky Packages Wikipedia article.

Thank you very much for your time and help, guys and gals.
Thank you again so very much to everyone who has shared their kind, words, thoughts and stories.

Like many, I was a geeky and uncomfortably shy child and I could play and hide in my Wacky Packages!!!!!!!

This past weekend my sister and girlfriend and I spent the weekend packing up and sorting through her apartment, memories filling the day filled with laughter and tears; it's part of the process I am finding out.

I am grateful and appreciative to have so many Wacky Friends here on the Forum......

I believe the only Wacky item was the three enamel pins
Fang and Cult 45 shirts, too.

Original Series / Re: Which Fun Packs Exist?

Yes, I just noticed my aversion to the letter "c"  but that is correct he hasn't opened the plastic bag
So he has a funback with series 16 packs in it?  This makes sense as I posted in one of these threads that I have an advertising sheet that shows a funback with series 16 wackys so I figured they must have existed.
I believe thatís part of his site where stuff was listed for sale.  Pretty sure thatís what he called it.

Yes, three times he emphasizes it.  Maybe he shouldn't be selling on eBay if he mistrusts the buyer that much. 

If the packs weren't damaged and looked to be legitimate the price would be tempting.  I just don't know if you could sell those packs for more than $100 with the damage.

Back to my original question though.  Has there ever been evidence of a legitimate full box with mixed 21 and 85 fold packs?

No, I donít believe that ever happened, but thereís no way to be sure without knowing exactly what the box filling process was. I think itís likely that the different style packs were wrapped by different machines, so it seems unlikely they would find their way into the same box.

When you think about it, itís impossible to ever know. Matt had a 3rd series box long ago made up of  two different groups of packs. They were all 85 fold but based on observable differences they clearly were two separate lots of packs. They were all legit, and I suspected the box had been created from loose packs, but if it came from the factory that way how could we tell the difference?

That candy was actually made by the same company as Bit-O-Honey and Mary Jane. In fact, Necco owned all these brands until they went out of business this past year. They auctioned off the brands a few months ago. Not sure where each of these brands ended up.

Candy historian factcheck:  Bit-O-Honey was never made by Necco.  It was never under the same roof as Squirrel Nut Zippers.  The most recent big owner of Bit-O-Honey was actually Nestle, who've had it for a few decades (though it underwent several oweners from the 60's through the 80's.  Nestle sold off the brand about five years ago to Midwest manufacturer Pearson's, maker of Pearson's Salted Nut Roll, among other things.  Pearson's still has it.    :-)
