What a wonderful Philly Show!  I just can't say enough about the wonderful trip that I made from Florida... Pinfest, Philly Show, and seeing several old and new Wacky Collectors from the surrounding areas. Flew into Philly and went right to to the Allentown Pinfest where I met Ernie, and we spent nearly 9 hours playing pinball with over 400+ machines to choose from...biggest show ever!

I was supposed to meet up with Kevin Flynn (Beanball), but he had some serious travel issues that he might post later when he gets settled back in Detroit.  I really enjoyed talking with the artists, especially Fred Wheaton and Neil Camera.  I was nicely surprised to see James Warhola, Tom Bunk, and John Deitrich there as well...all of whom I had collected their artwork, but never had met them in person before.  I was able to hang out with George Wright (my all-time favorite artist/collector) and was able to reminisce about Wacky Gatherings of the past.  In addition, I was able to meet several newer collectors like Mark (National Spittoon) and Brian (Ratchet007), who both were awesome collectors in their own right. 

The evening at the Ratz was awesome, and I would really like to commend the Roxanne on attending her 70th Philly Show!  If it was not for her and her supportive family, it is very possible that some of us would have never met.  Kind of like a Lost Wacky Family if you will....

Anyhow, I took several pictures, and here are just a few:

Brian, thanks so much for sharing, these are wonderful pics!  Naturally, I especially like that last pic with the Alien Joy ParoTee!  Might have to send you something special for posting that!

It was a promo card (#2) given out at the show.  Here is the flip side:



Here is promo #1:



And promo #3:



All of the backs feature a similar design.

Is there any more info on the Kooky Cards Set? Is this set being produced? Exclusive to WP Forum members? Kickstarter? Does anyone have the promo cards they’re willing to part with?

The Kooky Cards are a set of 3 promo cards based on some concepts that Mike Depaz wrote and I painted. There may be more and might even include other writers. We'll just have to wait and see ;) . I have just a few left, as well as the Sunday only promo card ("Curst"), but I'm still catching up from the crazy week, so I'll post about how to get them later this weekend.

There are so many different hot wheels that you could do an entire set of Flat Wheels and include different cars.

Nothing on how to acquire the Kooky Cards yet?

Also: Too bad the Spring Philly show didn't give a hint on the next Topps Wacky Packages series nor the next Wacky Packages Old School (#8) series.

Hi everyone!

I've finally sorted some of my cards from the show and have some extra Kooky promo cards (3 different) and some of the "Kurst" show cards to share. If anyone wants them, I can send one of each. But please keep in mind, it's first come, first serve. I have a very limited supply. Send me a PM on the forum and I will check back with you this weekend to reserve your cards. Once you get a confirmation, please send me a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope and I'll send 'em your way. GOOD LUCK!

PS - If you were able to get some at the show, please be courteous to other collectors and give them first dibs - thanks!

Neil, I got my promo cards today as well.  As usual, GREAT JOB on these, and thanks for letting those of us who couldn't go get our hands on these.  And like the others, I also wouldn't mind seeing a set of these in the near future.   :D

Just received them too from you, koduck! Thanks!

You recycled the Jerkens kid in Oxi Moron and the Gulp Oil monkey on Flat Wheels.
