I declare:

A= Complete diecut set including all 12 number variations (This includes original, authentic Ratz & Cracked)

B= Complete diecut set as numbered with original authentic #32 Ratz & #38 Cracked

C= Complete diecut set as numbered with #32 Weakies & #38 Cracked Jerk (May or may not include Ratz & Cracked Repros)

D= Complete diecut set as numbered except Ratz & Cracked are Repros

* As with the qualification of OS series run, no punched, gumless or otherwise excessively damaged wackys in the collection. I will leave it to define excessively damaged to the individual collector.

So Tom, you have either a C or D set  :great:

I think this is pretty good. One suggestion. By proposed definition, my set would be a C set. Mine consists of if all number variations (unpunched) but my Ratz & Cracked are Repros. I think we need a level between your proposed B and C since it is easier to collect all other number variations than it is to get original   Ratz & Cracked.  What do ya think?

Based on Kook's defs, I am a "D".   :sad:

cmgmd: I'd say you're in a fairly small club with an "A" set. [in my best Darth Vader] Impressive!!

Scot, I disagree, though, with your statement. Obtaining a 21 Jolly Mean is probably more difficult than even Ratz/Cracked, no?

Lastly, Pat: sorry, but like Bill wrote, I'd say no punched ones count. 'tis like having a full OS 1-16 that is all peeled or borderless. Cool, but not a set.  :D

I actually kind of like borderless Wackys, but I have also been described as a little odd......  :P

I can't speak to numbers produced, so that may be well be true. When I was making a push to fill in my collection back around 1993/94 (back when I had some pre-kids, early 30s money), there were more #21 Jolly Means available. Maybe I just lucked into one or ran with a Jolly Mean heavy crowd on Prodigy. 

On the punched topic, maybe there should be a bottom tier that is all the Diecut titles, whether punched, unpunched, repo or a combination.

I was an A and sold the set.

I am now an F as I have all titles in punched form including Ratz and Cracked.

I have a pile of diecuts that I will be selling off some day over the winter when outside activities no longer dominate my nights and weekends.

Using Kook's definitions, my unpunched set would be a C.  I am three away from an A, needing two number variations (Grave Train 6 and Jolly Mean 21) and Ratz.  I fear it will be harder to get the two variations than a Ratz.

I know my punched set doesn't count, but I'm holding on to it until I get an original Ratz.

Grave Train #6 is the easiest of the 3.   You should be able to get one in the $200 range, no?  I might even have one, have you asked me about this in the past?  I have little recollection of what I have scurried away.

I'm an A on the 1-16 run and an A on the Ads with both large and short perfs.
I'd be an A on the die cuts if I had the #21 Jolly Mean.  I have one punched, but there's no guarantee it's not a 43.

Just for some fun info to see if there's any big improvements, has anyone completed a full OS 1-16 run from the last time someone posted in this topic? (Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.)

I'm a "Z" by the way.

As in, eventually, you'll get Z full set?  :)

Oh. I was considering Z as a partial set, considering it IS the last letter... I only have the sets 2, 5, 6, 8, 9 finished. (I'm only missing 2 from S1, 2 from S3, 2 from S4, 2 from S7, 3 from S10, and lots from the others. Of course, I'm starting to get the PSA bug. I just like the way that the cards seem professionally graded even though the grading can be done piss poor...

Curious:

Has anyone here completed a 1-16 or Die-cuts set since the last post?

As Iíve said, I have 1-15 without most checklists and missing some variations like Grime Heavy and Spic and Span.

Anyone get anything new?
Thanks

I currently have a 1 - 16 run with all sticker and puzzle variations. 1st and 16th are graded. Currently working on a graded die-cut set. That'll give me something to do for the next several years.  :o  :great:

Good luck on graded die-cuts. That set has been growing on me ever since I started it. Unfortunately it isn't as easy as the 1-16 to get in good shape. You've probably seen this before when I've posted it, but this is pretty much my prized die-cut.

Fink was the first Die Cut I ever purchased, at the first show I ever went to looking for wackys. It was the erstwhile Parsippany show in August, 2001. That was the first time I met Ernie also. That Fink has since been replaced by this one...

I thought I was going to complete my graded die cut series this month, but the Ratz escaped me.  Hopefully soon I'll be getting a different one.

I think I was at that show and met Ernie for the first time too.  I actually saw him at a MAC machine while we were both getting more cash, but I didn't know who he was.  Great times!

What's a graded Ratz/Cracked/21 Jolly going for these days?

I finally finished the 16th puzzle! My Old Grandmom is borderless, but I still feel like I'm there.
