Yes, a set would be awesome with an Attacky Packages Magazines sub-set!  Neil, I think you've created an entire new direction for Wacky Packages!

OK, I know we've all seen this before but I felt it should be represented in this thread.  Neil's first ever (I think) Wacky Mars take, Moose Attacks, from way back in ANS 9 (remember ANS, I miss it already).

Yes, I'd like a set too! Contact your favorite Topps rep and tell them Neil's ready to make a Wacky Mars set! In fact, I think I have enough now for an entire base set ;)

You mean the same people who promised Drdeal his uncut sheet? You mean the same people who said there would be a regular Wacky set released in 2016. You mean the same people who know absolutely nothing about what goes on within the company? You mean those people??? If so, I've already quit before I got started!

You are our only hope Obi Wan Camera.

Some of these are great, but they don't have to be parodies of parodies. They can still spoof the original products used in vintage Wacky Packages.

For instance...Oscar The Martian can be simplified to Oscar Martian based on Oscar Mayer.

This mashup set is screaming to be made. Topps would be insane not to make this happen based on what has been posted. Clearly, the art and the demand are there.

They should do a Kickstarter for it if they are afraid to pull the trigger. That way the risk is reduced and we can show our support.

Topps is not some Mom & Pop shop needing capital to run their operations. I think that Wacky Packages line probably sells pretty consistent, if not just because of us kids of the 70's. Now the marketing feedback might help gauge support but I am sure they know about this site among many others that talk about trading cards.

I think Topps blundered with trying to mix-up the non-sports cards with sports cards with the Wacky Packages MLB set. I for one, while collecting sports cards when young, have since strayed away from most sports cards. I have specifically made it a hobby to collect non-sports cards. Perhaps I have gone a little overboard with my collection but I truly like the all non-sports stuff. I have no interest in the WP MLB set, Hello Topps...

Mixing up other non-sports titles, like Mars Attacks, with Wacky Packages probably will sell better than the WP MLB. I think a lot of people do not relate with sports and having trading cards that specifically are not sports related draw a good crowd. A lot of creative "artsy" folks are not driven by sports. Currently a huge crowd is the Cosplay crowd, if they could only figure out a way to merge non-sports cards with the Cosplay crowd they might pull off the the Wacky Packages line of the 21st century...

It took me awhile to get into MLB Wacky Packages but in the end, I really enjoyed collecting the set.  It had some some fun, off beat gags and a nice but modest range of chase items.  I loved the fact that the promos cards were released with this years MLB set and the sketch cards were top notch.  We've had Wackys for near 50 years (on and off) and I can't fault Topps too much for trying to mix it up.

I agree...... they tried to create crossover for future WP sets with baseball fans...... just not great response from WP fans....

Well someone must have liked MLB as the sketch cards sold like hotcakes on eBay.  I had wanted to get a version of White Sox Relish from each artist and only ended up with three and had to fight to get them!  Luckily I was able to get a few returns from artists to help round out my collection.
