General Wacky Packages Discussion / Re: 2nd Series No Copyright
« Last post by Fanatical_and_Sickly on June 12, 2020, 01:39:43 PM »
Ed, why do you think so many die cuts and 1st series stickers seem to have a blue line visible, (though not nearly as prominent)?
on the later series, the line was masked out on the art before being photographed.
For the 3rd series, you can see the sloppy brush strokes of the 'not quite black' that cover the lines (on the cards, and on much of the art too).
Beyond that, black tape or a true black ink covered the lines.
It seems odd that Topps would go through so much trouble to put the white die line onto the art, just to then mask it out before the printing process

I wish I had all the comic books & sports cars my dad had (before his mom tossed them when he was at college).  I was jazzed to get to play with some of the stuff he kept when I was a kid, though... vintage slot-car set, and all sorts of toys that would be labeled as dangerous now I'm sure.  It's the screens, though.  That's why kids don't care about anything they can't swipe with their finger or click with a remote.  The telephone, TV, movie theaters, and board games were no match for Wackys and bikes and camping back then.  They were all just some of many things to do in a day.  Once kids get indoctrinated into screen-culture and have their own iPhone or iPad with Instagram and YouTube... it's all over.  (I work in education, so we see the lasting effects of it first hand)... They're checked out.  Zombified.  Black Mirror.
If you look at the post I wrote in "Do you remember this?" (Reply #18, June 2nd, 2020) you'll see a perfect example of what you're talking about here as far as toys are concerned.

Well, we got the April Fools' Postcards and we've been getting the Wonkys.

The way I see it, two out of three isn't bad.

How many of these are known to exist?  Brian and I were going after one that Paul Hart auctioned thru Roxanne years ago.  I believe in shipping the box got crushed.

The picture I have/Dave posted is from Roxanne's auction. That is the only example of this box I am aware of. Sorry to hear it was crushed in shipping.

Can't you slide it around to see?  All I can really remember is that if you bought 3 books, Topps was very good at making sure you got books with WP1, WP2 and WP3, along with the extra WP4 card.
For the past few weeks I hadn't been able to find my Wonky's in any of usual places, so I just spent a good part of the weekend doing a deep dive for them.
Almost immediately I found one of those little white topps WP Funpack envelopes, and I had mysteriously placed just WP1 and WP4 in it.
After searching through to almost the last box, I eventually found my WP comics stash, which held all three of issue #5's. One opened and two of them still sealed.
I was able to shake things a little bit and verify they contain WP2 and WP3 by their borders. Quite a relief!
Now I just have to figure out how to put everything back.
