That's a fantastic sketch card!  Guess it was rejected because of the alcohol theme?

Correct, I did not think about it while creating the card, very unfortunate! I had to send it back to Topps, I guess the card has been shredded by now  :'(

Thank you btw!  :great:

Some finished return cards:

Wacky Packages 2015 series 1 Artist Return Shaped Sketch Card of the 1991 Wacky Packages Wrapper



Vincenzo, those are fantastic.  Great idea about sketching a wrapper and for some reason, I really like the other one as well!

Yeah, just kinda sucks the life right out of you knowing it was probably ground up by Topps.

Joe - Thank you very much!

The wrapper was a commission for a WP forum member, very fun to draw! .... I can't figure out why you like the other sketch card though! hahaha  :great:

Thank you Marc! .... and I DEF agree with you! It is a return card created for a Wacky fan on demand, so it is NOT being inserted in a pack let alone end up in a child's hand or anything for that matter, but rules are rules... mistakes occur ....

Yeah it really sucks indeed sco(o)t  :sad:

Not only for me but also for the person who was waiting for that particular card. Worst part is, I lost a return card! Grrr......

But let's sail forward! haha  ;D

Vincenzo, I love it!  Nice to see you've taken brush in hand.  Not to play devil's advocate but I thought Topps makes us put the Wacky's name on sketch cards.  Wasn't that the case for WP 2015?

Thank you very much Joe.... I'm still trying to Master the brush, and I must say: I like it a lot! ....... And I think that was the case indeed! haha... your a good advocate  >:D ..... But it was approved by Topps as it is....  so I guess I'm lucky?   :P

Thank you very much Neil!

Yes I understand, it was difficult for me to choose which card to make on my return cards since we where VERY limited in choice. Next time better, haha..

Hello everybody, with a last week to go before the Wacky Packages 50th Anniversary set comes out, it is time to post some cool sketches I've created for that set. This round we have Regular Sketches, Shaped Sketches, Panoramic Sketches, Dual Artist Sketches(Same as Panoramic but then with two different artists on 1 sketch combined!) and Loaded Puzzle Sketches. I will post all the pack inserts here, all cards can be found out in the wild. I will also have Artist Return Sketch Cards available this upcoming period, for more info feel free to message me. With that being said: Let the hunt begin!! have a Wacky search  :P

Whoohoo!!

I had SO much fun doing these WP sketches again after such a long time (MLB set didn't count for me!) I hope you will pull one off course! I think there are some solid sketches out there this set, as I've seen some great artwork from all other artists as wel  :great:

Thank you Scot!!  8)

Hi there Wacky collectors, I hope we are all having a great summer!!  8)

Time to post some summer sketches!! (I still have some blanks available!)

with that being said, I wanna post some return sketch cards that I've recently finished. Today's sketch card is a very special one, it is from the "special" Irish TEST series from 1981 and was basically undiscovered till 2004, see more info here: http://www.wackypackages.org/stickers/irish_test/

The title is: Eviltime .... Enjoy!! ...... if you have any interest in having a sketch card done by me, feel free to send me a message here on the forum or chenduz@gmail.com
