OK, no one seems particularly interested in the WP 2015 lost Wackys but I did want to add one little tidbit.  If you look close you'll see the worms in Wiggly Packages are actually eating Wacky series 7 postcards.  I thought that was pretty cool as series 7 is my favorite postcard set.

Nice observation.  That is my favorite title of this release.

Yes, this might be my favorite card from our break.

Glad you like it! A little trivia: Wiggly Packages is a Paul Harris title that I painted and was originally planned for series 7 postcards. But late into development, we decided to hold it for series 8.  In the meantime, we had already started the sketch cards, so every now and then, you'll see a series 7 sketch card with one of the Wiggly Packages characters! And as Joe mentioned, the titles on the art are the postcard titles, "Capn Clunk" and "Marigold Whip". Really cool to finally see it printed!

Neil you rock, Paul Harris rocks, the Wacky rocks.  That's all I will say.

Patrick, very cool, thanks for sharing.  Here's another sketch orphan (great term) of a pulled PC9 gag from ANS 11.

What are the billboard spoofs on the backs of 6 of the 2015 Wacky Packages stickers?

for those curious about the purple border cards found in the bonus packs...

anyone? anyone? Bueller?

it's far more obvious which is which in this scan than it is in normal lighting

they are repeats of the six billboard inserts found inside the collector boxes. same as was done with the last few series.

Ha, I was looking at them both wondering what you were talking about. I enlarged them on my iPad and you can see a slight variation.

Been seeing some very nice sketches.
Here are a couple returns sketches I did for this series.
The first one has every non-repeat die cut.
The second two combine to feature every first series title.

Hello:

I'm trying to figure out what this sketch card that I pulled from a collectors box is. Is this what the are calling "Panoramic Sketch Card" ??? And I can't make out the signature either, I'd love to know who the artist is.


Thanks for the help!

That's King O'Scare from original series 11.  Very nice!  And, I do believe that's what is called a panoramic sketch.  I can't make out the signature, too small a picture.

"I'd love to know who the artist is."




The artist is Chenduz      (who lives in the Netherlands)

Many Europeans write their Z's and 2's in a similar fashion, and some cross their Z's so they can distinguish between the two

The first value pak I opened I forgot about the purple parallels and put all the cards in my stacks - now I can't tell them apart from the regular black borders!
Under indoor lights and with my old eyes it's almost impossible - why did Topps do this??!!!! Are the purples always among the last 3 cards in the value paks?

Weird - when I tried to open the picture during the night to see it larger it wouldn't work, but now it does, and I can read his signature.

The signature reads Chenduz which is the name that artist Vincenzo D'Ippolito uses.
aka Scot Leibacher (no trademark)

yeah, the purples are practically indistinguishable. almost like a faded black. you gotta eat your carrots before looking at these.
of the jumbo packs I've seen, the hits are the last 4 cards. but if you've stacked yours already, not sure how that helps.
Insert, purple, purple, and mod border at the bottom.

Since Topps 2015 Wacky Packages series spoofs a Wacky Packages Postcards wrapper, will the next Wacky Packages series (2016 by my guess) feature a spoof on the Wacky Packages Old School Wrapper?

Sorry about that. I am new to the forum and when I added the picture I selected "Thumbnail." Which I thought gave you the thumbnail but would expand to a larger size photo when clicked. But it was simply a tiny photo! :-) So I edited the post later. Thanks for the info everyone!!!

Mark, wonderful gag and painting!  Also cool that your card on eBay if the first green Ludlow to surface.  Still no Wacky backs listed.  Will we have a repeat of last years Wacky backs mystery?

Thanks Joe! Yours too.

Matthew, those are superb.  The Slum Maid is too cool and the panoramic Lice is jaw dropping.  Also you finally solved the mystery of what Exceedrin looked like.

Thanks guys. I did a few with my left, but that was really bad. I took 2 weeks off and then had enough mobility to lock my arm to my side and just move my hand, it was uncomfortable, and it shows.
