 A Capn Crud Altered Art Card hit Ebay today with a low opening bid. Nice to watch.  It's been awhile since one of these cards was put on auction starting with a low opening bid.

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...






Here are the combined images of all the Altered Artwork / Mixed up Characters subsets I was talking about...

Maybe 9 cards in the subset to fit in a 9 card binder page?

Pretty quiet on the forum and Ebay as of late regarding the this Chrome Subset. Still looking for the two I need to complete the set. (Ajerx and Quacker Oats). Not one of the nine cards in the set have been sold on Ebay in the last 5 months. I have not purchased any more packs lately; as that got old. Now I am just patiently waiting for the cards I need to surface. I feel pretty fortunate to have pulled Campy and Gadzooka from packs. The Gadzooka led to me attaining two of the nine cards I needed in trades (Kook-Aid and Demented) I think I purchased around 1000 packs so pulling two of these beats the odds (1:1500) These cards are always placed in the third position in the stack; so when I was opening packs it was all about pulling the 9 titles that could be Altered/ Mixed up cards. When I opened a pack and started to reveal the third card it was exciting if it was one of the nine. Obviously they are almost ALWAYS the normal version; but once you realize the third card is one of the 9 you have a shot. I am curious to know if there are others on this board who are still actively buying chrome in search of this set or superfractors?

I recently pulled a Capn Crud altered art card that I was planning on putting on ebay.....unless I receive a good offer.  No superfractors in a long time. I still am always hopeful for another one of Neil's chrome sketches.

I thought I would post a few pics of my Current Chrome Display. I have one color and one B & W Sketch in there as placeholders for the last two cards I am seeking to complete the set (Quacker Oats and Ajerx). I do not get tired of this set as time goes by. The Cards with Altered Art (Campy, Kook-Aid, Demented, Cap'n Crud) always make me smile; especially Campy w/ The Ugly Button Gangster. The mixed-up Character Cards are great too; especially Gadzooka with The Minute Lice Lady on it. I think Bazooka Joe is happier with her on the pack than the Schoolteacher. The changed images of Iconic Titles on the chrome cards are such a great presentation IMO. I just wish they wern't so hard to come by. I still can't fathom that I pulled Campy and Gadzooka. I traded a Superfractor(Sailem) to get Gadzooka and then pulled one out of a Blaster Box. I was able to trade the Gadzooka for another card in the set so that was still a great pull.

Sealed the deal today for Ajerx and Quacker Oats which completes my 9 Card Chrome Altered Art / Mixed-Up Character set. I will post a pic of the group once they arrive.

Completing that set was a long journey to say the least! Many thanks to those on this board who helped me get there.

The mixed up art seem harder to find than the altered art.  I think that's because the altered art cards are so obviously different than the unaltered cards, whereas the mixed up art cards are more subtle and someone (like a kid) could easily miss the fact that they are mixed up.

I see there is now a Campy Altered Art up on the bay:  322356786898

Nice to see it offered for sale. The price may seem high; but the facts are that the only way to get these now is to buy huge amounts of packs and hope or pay the price. Having done both options I would say the deciding factor is what else do you need from the series? If all you want is that card then find a way to buy or trade for it. If you want other Altered Art / Mixed up cards or a Superfractor; then buy tons of packs. One thing is clear. Don't buy packs if you have ANY inclinatiuon that you could resell anything other Altered Art/ Mixed Up/ Supers. No one is buying chrome sets/ subsets these days....at any price other than almost free.  ;)

I see the Campy was ended early. I guess a trade or off-line sale was arranged. Anyone here score it?

Looking for some advice on how to display my favorite Wacky Pack Set. The cards are in Acrylic Protectos and are leaning / stacked on Cardboard.

Does anyone have a better way to display these cards to suggest?

Thanks, Andrew

Very nice set!

Personally, I'd lean toward removing them from the acrylic protectors and mount the entire set in a custom made matted frame with non-reflective glass.  (It would be one mat, but cut out in 10 individual places for the 10 cards.  Maybe 2 rows of four verticals, and the two horizontals below?)  Pricey?  Yes.  But as I said, it's a very nice set, and I think it would be worth it.  As you said, it's you're favorite set - your Hope Diamond.

I would also suggest putting them in a place where the daylight won't fade them.  If I can see the daylight reflected in the cards, so can Koduck/Quacker Oats and Mr. Demented Whatever-It-Is (who, incidentally, I've taken a real liking to.)
