WP Chrome Mixed-Up Character/ Altered Art Card Roll Call
« on: May 29, 2016, 06:21:05 AM »
These Variant Cards which can be found in WP Chrome Packs are one of the coolest chase items done for Wacky's in recent years IMO.

There looks to be 9 Titles found so far.  The cards are found 1:1500 Packs. The below list is from this board's WP Chrome Master list:

Altered Art:  Campy w/ Ugly Button, Kook-Aid w/ Make Your Own Name, Demented w/ Ugly Sticker, Cap'n Crud w/ Mars Attacks.

Mixed-Up Character: Koduck w/ Quacker,   Quacker w/ Koduck, Commie w/ Ajerx,  Ajerx w/ Gadzooka,  Gadzooka w/ Minute Lice.

The fact that these cards pay homage to Norm Saunders exclusively is a very nice move by Topps. To see Norm's art redeployed on different Wacky titles and to see his art from other releases show up on Wacky's is so special. 

My sense is that many of these cards are sitting in kids collections with the owner having no idea of the rarity of the card in his or her collection. 

Please post what you have from this special group of cards.

These Variant Cards which can be found in WP Chrome Packs are one of the coolest chase items done for Wacky's in recent years IMO.

I own One example of The Mixed-Up Character Cards (Koduck w/ Quacker)
   and One example of The Altered Art Cards (Cap'n Crud w/ Mars Attacks)



There looks to be 9 Titles found so far with a total of 10 suspected. The cards are found 1:1500 Packs. The below list is from this board's WP Chrome Master list:

Altered Art:  Campy w/ Ugly Button, Kook-Aid w/ Make Your Own Name, Demented w/ Ugly Sticker, Cap'n Crud w/ Mars Attacks.(5th title possibly)

Mixed-Up Character: Koduck w/ Quacker,   Quacker w/ Koduck, Commie w/ Ajerx,  Ajerx w/ Gadzooka,  Gadzooka w/ Minute Lice.

The fact that these cards pay homage to Norm Saunders exclusively is a very nice move by Topps. To see Norm's art redeployed on different Wacky titles and to see his art from other releases show up on Wacky's is so special. 

My sense is that many of these cards are sitting in kids collections with the owner having no idea of the rarity of the card in his or her collection. 

I was able to obtain the Koduck card at a great price from Brad and recently scored the Cap'n Crud card on the bay for a good price.

Please post what you have from this special group of cards. The one I would love to acquire is the Gadzooka with Minute Lice Lady. That has only turned up once so far.  The two I own have been seen on this forum and ebay many times at this point. With the price of Value Packs really low as of late I am hoping to see more of these cards surface and be offered for sale.

I recall seeing a Coronation with altered art, which would round out the 10.  Does anyone else remember this??  Am looking for a pic......

Meanwhile, I did find this picture of a card that hasn't been posted in this thread yet, which makes 8 of 10:

By process of elimination, so to speak, could there be a Minute Lice with the Commie Uncle Sam or Koduck Mona Lisa, or Quacker Oats with the Commie Uncle Sam? Don't recall the Coronation altered art...A

So far they only did one complete swap Mixed Up Character Cards: Koduck w Quacker and Quacker w/ Koduck.

The other Mixed Up Character Cards: Commie w/ Ajerx and Ajerx w/ Gadzooka and Gadzooka w/ Minute Lice.

So the commie character is missing - Uncle Sam then may show up on minute lice - unless there is a Carnation mix up out there for the tenth card....A

As far as I can gather - altered art is where a non Wacky character is put on an old parody artwork and mixed up is where the wrong Wacky character is placed on a vintage Wacky parody -

I thought it had Uglys instead of the flowers.  Haven't found a picture, so maybe I'm mistaken.

I love this Chrome Set... Although it's a reprint of years gone by at least they do not have all these "Wacky" borders although they do have too many Refractor sets. The Mixed-Up Character/ Altered Art Cards are nice. Perhaps the best subset I have seen. I wonder how many of these cards got just misplaced without realizing what they actually were? Gees... So to put it all in one place... Here are two pics of all the "known" cards in the subsets. I wonder why there is only 4 of the Altered Art cards?

If anyone has any of the cards that are not the best images, please post or send me a message. I would like to put up better quality images for some of the cards. This is just what I found online or on here. I have a couple of them, hope to complete these subsets though...

I just checked the backs of my Altered Art and Mixed Up Character cards. They have different code #'s compared to regular base cards.

Base cards 1 - 107 have Code #CMP009519

Mixed Up Cards have Code      #CMP010123

Altered Art Cards have  Code  #CMP010124

They're on the backs of the Ludlows too, but not 100%, depending on where the "cut" is.

cool thanks.
seems like if there is different art, there needs to be a new code.
so things like border color or card material changes (e.g. wood) don't necessarily require a new number, but thing like altered art, wacky backs, ludlow backs do.

WP SuperFractor Code : CMP009519   Which is the same as the code on the base cards so SF's did not get their own code.

What packs or boxes have you pulled your Mixed-Up Character/ Altered Art Cards?

I pulled my Cap'N Crud Altered Artwork from a pack out of the "Wacky Box" from Target.
I pulled my De Mented from a Value Pack.
All of my Sketch cards (5) have been from Value Packs.
Also a Superfractor was pulled from a Value Pack.

Value Packs Atomic x15
Wacky Box (Target 16 Packs) ? A Lot - Some clear retail, some reg packs

I received the Kook-Aid Altered Art card today from a trade. That completes my 4 Card Altered Art Set.  I also have 3 out of 5 of the Mixed-Up Art cards.
My display features my Superfractor, the 7 Variation Cards and one example of the blue and gold Ludlow-Backed cards. If/ when I obtain the other Mixed Up Cards I need (Ajerx with Gadzooka Lady and Quacker Oats with Koduck Duck) the blue and gold cards will move out to make room for them.  I have been quite lucky to have pulled a Campy and a Gadzooka out of recently purchased packs. I am opening one pack per day now so it may take awhile to score another variation card.

I pulled Gadzooka from a value pack and Campy from a Blaster box. Never got anything remotely cool from a collector box. Go figure. Pretty random.

Crazy how you pulled the two remaining Chrome variants I have been looking for.  :great:

And along those lines, if anyone has a Gadzooka or Campy variant they would like to part with, please let me know. 

Thanks!

     Best of luck in your quest for those two cards. Maybe we will both get doubles and can trade. Congrats on acquiring 7 out of 9 variants! Not easy to do.

Thanks Andrew, will do.  Good luck in your quest also.  Please reach out to me if you come across the two I need.
