bigtomi's items for sale
« on: February 16, 2013, 07:33:09 PM »
I don't honestly expect this thread to be filled with item after item as I don't really sell much, but I wanted to start it off, anyway, to isolate my cr...stuff from others'.

We begin with a 1973 Toadal poster. Not something offered every day, I suppose. It's been rolled up for a while and it is in excellent shape, no damage to speak of, just tiny wear along edges, no rips or tears that I have noticed yet. The pic below is taken directly from the auction in which I won it, so that's it exactly. I'll take offers for a week or so to give everyone a chance...and then decide next step.

Thanks!

Sorry, bro...that was the one I needed, too. Wished he'd broken them up. I could use a nicer Weakies, as well...

So what's the deal with these? They're unfolded and in plastic sleeves. I don't recall hearing about any being found that way. Maybe they were promotional giveaways?

Yeah, it appears all of the ones in this auction are unfolded. The plastic sleeves look like this:



The small red text on the plastic reads: Contents: 1 poster   (c) Topps Chewing Gum, Inc., Duryea, PA 18642 Made & Printed in U.S.A.
(I can probably get a more legible scan of the sleeve, if anyone's interested)

I would say that, as usual Patrick, you're dead on with these being promos of some kind, probably given to stores by salesmen or the like. Would help explain how both Toadal and Cheapios were together in a lot in two sleeves. Wow! Thanks for slapping me across the face with this...I almost dumped the sleeves in the trash!! What a moron chicken I'd have been!

I may have to reconsider if I want to sell this Toadal...I do have another (which is very nice, but was folded) which I'd offer instead.

Thanks for giving me that much credit, but I really didn't get it until you pointed it out. How pathetic of a collector am I? or, at least, how unobservant? LOL

Thanks, Ern, for the vote of confidence, but that was a few years back. Seems my "observance" has diminished a bit since...lol.

I totally missed that too! I was considering bidding to upgrade my cheepios (my weakies & toadal are pretty nice), but I really didn't want to spend a lot because of the krinkle marks in the cheepios from being rolled up & probably squeezed a bit. I totally overlooked the tube/bag & label figuring it was a collector storing them, not thinking it was a topps promo. Great find. Congratulations on the win!

A better scan would be great. The auction really didn't showcase the tubes well.

hmmmm. well in that case, somehow it only seems fair, at least to me, that I should be able to partake of the spoils...  :D

Didn't Elizabeth sell a complete unfolded poster set a few years back?  I don't collect the posters but I thought I remember seeing it on Greg's forum.

It's possible that Cheryl Sweppy did -- I alas don't have even one unfolded poster.  :'(

She is not active on any wacky pack forum.  I believe pinball collecting has consumed her and wackys are a thing of the past.

Hey all, I am looking for a '73 Cheapios poster if anyone has one. Does not have to be perfect. Need it to go along with my Toadal and Weakies posters. I have some other 73 poster if you want to trade...

Not really for sale, but the best place to post this: I have 4 Mario Bros and 9 You'll Die Laughing cards I want to get rid of. Just cover postage and they're yours. First PM gets 'em.

OK, was cleaning up/reorganizing my extra Wacky stuff and have 3 OS posters which I want to unload quickly. See pic of them below. I'm thinking $10 shipped takes 'em all. PM me, if interested.

Nothing real special today, but I have a 50th anniversary silver Chef Girl-ar-dee medallion #35/50 for sale. PM me with any offers. Would rather sell here than eBay...and will take less than eBay rates. Thanks!
