Well, since it's 'Opening Day' here is my painting for MLB Wacky Packages.  For those keeping score at home it's card number 58.

Looks great Joe! Love the detail on the product and the character is hilarious! I hope we see a lot more of your art in future sets!

Well, it looks like the floodgates have opened for Wacky Packages 50th sketches so here's a few of mine.  I decided to do something a little different this time around and only sketch gags which I originally came up with.  Kinda like the K-Tel thing with original Wacky Sketches by the original gag artist.  Here's a page of singles with ANS, WP 2014, 2015 and a WP 50th gag stuck in for good measure.

Neil, thanks! In addition to it being Wacky's 50th, it's my 5th Anniversary of working on Wackys so nice to be able to celebrate it in a small way.

Here's the second batch of singles which contains some of my favorite gags!

Jim, yeah, My Little Bony was always one of my favs.  I have a soft spot as well for Mobster High so, of course, those two had to be made into puzzles!

Jim, thanks!  I haven't heard yet which boxes will contain puzzles but it seems it will either be Collector's boxes or Blaster boxes.  Hopefully we'll get some info soon!

Jim, checked in with Topps and here's the scoop:

4-card puzzles are only in the Value Boxes.
Panoramics are only in the fat pack.
Shaped and Dual Artist are only in the Collector Edition.
Standard is in retail and hobby display box, but not in CE.

Same as the last few GPK sets.

What exactly are "Value Boxes"?  When I search the web, all I see are Hobby Boxes and Collector Hobby Boxes.  Is there someplace to pre-order "Value Boxes", and if so, is that what they are called on that site?

Marc, sorry, I cut and pasted that verbiage from the email I received from Topps.  I assume they are Blaster boxes.

I believe that Blaster boxes is a term started and used with gaming cards like Yu-gi-oh, etc., for boxes that contained a chunk of cards to fatten your gaming stack.
The multi-pack boxes for sport and non-sport cards were always Value boxes.
But somewhere in the last few years, blaster has taken over as the name a lot of people and stores use for all of them. (Topps still calls them correctly)
To me, it's totally wrong to use blaster, but it is what it is.

OK, I just received these images from Fred Wheaton and I had to post them since Fred totally rocks!  He really just makes anything he touches awesome and I was too honored to get to collaborate with him.  I'm only sorry I didn't get to keep one!

Could dual artists and panoramic cards be the same item? A

I think the Panoramics are four panels that run horizontally. Check out some of Chundez's (Vincenso's) in the 50th Anniversary sketch thread. I don't know is these are one long card with three folds or four cards that form a horizontal puzzle, but I am guessing it's the multifolded one card.

The Panoramic sketches are the foldout books 5x3,5" .... The Dual Artist sketches are the same, only difference is that TWO artists has drawn on them (how cool!)

The Loaded sketches also known as Puzzles sketches are 4 cards combined in either a row, portrait or landscape. 4-Panel Sketch

I hope this helps!  :P

Vincenzo, agreed, I can't wait for the set to come out and thanks for the kudos!  If you do pull one of my sketches, remember it's also my gag so you'll have a one of a kind sketch by the original gag (and sometimes painting) artist!

So as we've been awash with WP 50th sketches, I thought, for a change of pace, I'd post one of my Olds 5 returns.  This is Woozy Willy making the moves on Hairdo Harriet!  For those that don't know Harriet was the girl version of Wooly Willy.

Oh yeah! I think that is very nice, actually IMO that is what they should do, let the gag-creator make sketch cards only with his/her new gag and put a gold logo on it and make the hit odds of this gold sketch smaller so the value is higher towards all other sketch cards? Kudo's well earned... btw I still have your return proud on display here!  8)
