Buy Requests for Wacky Packages / Re: Lavirus' Want List
« Last post by Lavirus on March 06, 2024, 10:14:42 AM »
Picked up the odd glossy promos that came out around ANS6 - one set of 9 cards and one make-your-own set of 14.

I've finally organized all of my cards and have some extra sets of these, so if anybody am interested in purchasing a set, let me know.

  I have lots of extra letters too, if anybody would want some singles for any reason.

Well, it seems that my worst fears have been realized. Brick-and-mortar stores that sell Wackys are as dead as a dodo.
No Topps WP products are sold at retail stores, havenít been for years.  The only thing in question is the 3D minis, which are made and marketed by a separate company.  With recent news of Series 4 being on hold, cancelled or whatever, the only thing you have to lament is finding no lingering Series 1, 2 or 3 stock.

I would suspect you're in a small club there. Seems like the '85s get very little love, along with the '91s. Good for you, though, for this and having some unique items like that.

Think of it like the mafia. Your collecting roots have to be traced back to prove you bought these from your local quickie mart in 1985.

Buy Requests for Wacky Packages / Re: Blunder Bread items

Thanks for the feedback. I too have many other favorites, but not a lot of $funds$ to create such a collection for everyone of my favs. It is truly amazing on how many items contain images of Blunder bread and how many sets have this character or something similar to it.

I still collect all other WP when possible, but Blunder will always be my favorite.

You make a good point - not every title has been so abundantly reprinted, some hardly ever at all.  Goes back to the theory that Topps has underutilized titles for which they lack high-quality scans.  Though Iím thinking that may not explain every title thatís been ignored time and time again.  For maximum iconic status, Blunder Bread is right up there with all the greats.

Master Lists / Re: 2014 Series 1 Master Checklist

Here's more typos in the checklist on pg. 1:

*"Die-Cut",
*"Pattern (Mod Rad) background w/black border...",
*"Artist Autograph Set...".

In both the Terrible TV and Ridiculous Reads sections:

*"Pattern (Mod Rad)...",
*"Silver Border" (?),
*"Red Border" goes between "Silver..." and "Printing Plate...".

Master Lists / Re: ANS 10 - Master List

Also, in the same list, "Cloth Set..." should go between "Gold Border..." and "Blue Border..." and it should be "Lost Wackys set...".

I just checked out this web site now and it no longer exists.
Greg re-hosted to AWS this year and that may have broken the link with Mannís old site.
He does have his own page of roughs which looks similar, plus has some ANS stuff.
