I'm new, looking for info and advice
« on: March 27, 2010, 04:10:55 PM »
Hi all,
I collected Wacky Packs as a kid and recently,while cleaning out my moms house, found them in my old stuff.
I had no idea until now that there was such an interest in them as collectibles.I am thinking about selling the collection and was looking for advice about where to do this and what to ask for them. I've looked on Ebay and around this site a bit,but it can all be a bit overwhelming.
Briefly,I have:


Series 1-all
       2-all
       3-all except No Tips, Choke King
       4-all
       5-all
       6-all
       7-all
       8-all
       9-all
       11-all except Family Circuit
       12-all
       13-all except Battle Ball
       14-all except Rebell Jet,Totarillo Cigars,Slayer   Aspirin,Promesso Sauce
       15-all

They all seem to be in great shape to me, but what do I know?
Some are white back,some are tan. There are quite a few duplicates.
There are no puzzles,just a marked checklist card for each set.

I also have some die cut ones:
Lavirus,Dopey Whip,Alcohol Seltzer,De-mented,Band-ache,Tied,Mrs. Klean,Cover Ghoul,Maddie boy,Breadcrust Hash,Hostage,Mutts,Jolly Mean Giant,Quacker,Slum Maid,and Cracked Jerk.

In short, What do I have here???
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Condition is the most imprtant thing, If the "Die-Cuts" you have are in EX+ to NM (cond) they could be worth a few houndrad dollars! :o

Don't get caught up in trying to put the exact correct GRADE on the stickers as everyone classifies grades differently.  Call out the flaws ie touched corners, crease, blemishes or dirt(especially on white backs) and then the collectors can translate those flaws into what they think the grade would be.  Showing scans of typical card, best in lot, worst in lot is helpful.  Prices have varied widely over the years but my price guide has endured the test of time pretty well:

For some ideas on flaws to call out, review my grading guide:
