Singles from the Shoe.
« on: April 04, 2014, 11:25:49 AM »
A couple weeks ago, Mrs Shoe & I went antique shopping & flea marketing around the Amish area of PA. and we went to one of our favorite shops called the Heritage Antique/Collectibles. At one of the dealers booths, There was a display case that had 2 nice stacks of original Wacky singles, Altogether I picked up 65. The majority of them ranged from 2nd-9th and there were 2 from the 1st and a few from the 12th. Any interest in any of the series, Send me a PM.

I would like to ask a couple of favors of all forum members:

1. How many of you on here have a complete 1-16 run?

2. And are you satisfied with it or are there some upgrades you are in need of?

The reason I ask these questions is because I know the main collecting interests on this forum is mostly based on the original 1st-16th series, I was heavily considering purchasing a huge collection from someone, But that idea has been put on the back burner for a while. I am happy to report that with the exception of 1 set, I'm going to be able to get my own run back again because as a lot of you know, I had to part with mine a couple yrs. ago. I should have 9 out of the 10 sets I need by sometime in Dec. I currently have the 5th-9th and the 11th. In the meantime though, I look forward to a reply from all of you on my 2 posted questions.

Always upgrading when possible. May never finish that task...but the vast majority of my keepers are satisfactory, really.

I don't have a complete 1-16 anymore. I've traded a few cards when I found it advanced my ultimate goals to do so.

My main priority is die cuts and series 1-7. When I am able to trade/sell a few 8th/9th series PSA 10s for $1000 worth of cash/cards I want more, I do it and figure out how to replace those cards later. This was a tough decision for me to make, but it has allowed me to make more progress than I ever dreamed possible on what I really care about.

Thank you for your input in my thread Dave, If you ever decide to get back a little or a lot of what you gave up before, I can point you in the direction of a friend who can help you out I'm sure.

I am still looking for Shedd's   I need a few upgrades to my series  16.  (Always looking for that better centered card so I guess I will never be through with obtain original series wackies).  Also still need Ratz and Cracked, and jolly mean #21.  Haven't even appropriated any double hostess cards. So I feel that even though I have 1000's of wackies I am no where near complete.

Thank you for your inquiry Joe, Unfortunately my friend doesn't have a Ratz or Cracked or any of the Shedd ones.

1. How many of you on here have a complete 1-16 run?

I remember this subject being discussed in great length on one of the old forums (John Mann's maybe?) I believe the thread was named something like "Who Here Has Sealed the Deal". There were three "levels" of what qualified as a full run... A, B & C.

As of this past Wednesday, I officially completed my third 1st-16th run when I received the elusive TR puzzle piece for the 16th series. I have a fourth 1st -16th run that is about 90% complete. I quit collecting the ANS stuff a few years ago and have concentrated on building the sets from the 70's.

Did you leave any there? I might be going soon and I wanna get some if they're there. If they're not, there's really no point in going unless there's some other cool stuff.

Found some OS checklists at a PA flea market that takes place on only Tuesdays I believe. It's called Roots. Someone had boxes of non sports and I found some checklists, but no cards.. I picked up a Choke Wagon list and that's it.

About 14 years ago, I found one of the last alternate checklists I needed to "seal the deal" at a sci-fi convention.  One never knows!!

What were the prices on the series 1's, and were the Grimes Dusty or Heavy?

I think a lot of the cards were 3 to 4 dollars each, and there were no Heavy's. I looked, trust me. Probably woulda bought both if they were.  :]
