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.

Andrew

Wow! That's an impressive collection!

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.

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.)

I traded the Sailem Superfractor for that card. Then I pulled one out of a pack and traded it for another card I needed in the set. Best of luck in scoring one. I think there are more out there in packs so just wait.

Nicely done display!

I hadn't really thought about this before, but it's interesting that this subset has some cards with characters from different Topps series and some with characters from different Wacky stickers.  A part of me says it would have been cooler to have a series with ALL characters from non-Wackys and one with characters from the "wrong" Wacky.  I think the duck swap on Quaker and Koduck is wonderful.  I'd love to see more of that.  As I would more Wackys with characters from Mars Attacks, Monster Initials, GPKs, etc.

Stepping away momentarily from all attention lately on the new 2020 weekly series......yesterday I pulled a Chrome Campy altered art card that I was planning on listing on ebay for $499.99 "or best offer".....but I'm giving Forum members first crack at it.

I just sold it on ebay and the buyer asked if I know anyone selling any more of these so he can try to put together a set of all 9.  If anyone has any they're looking to sell, I can put you in touch with the interested party.

I've been stuck on 7 out of the nine for a few years.  Still looking for two of the mixed up characters: Ajerx w/ Gadzooka and Gadzooka w/ Minute Lice.  If anyone has either of these and is willing to part with them, let me know..

Love this set. The Gadzooka w Minute Lice Lady is the Centerpiece of it IMO. I traded the only SuperFractor Sailem ever made for one; then pulled one out of a value pack a week later. I then traded that for another one of the nine I needed. I think I purchased about 2000 packs trying to pull these cards and only piulled two titles (Gadzooka and Campy).  Such a rough set to assemble. It took me a year and a half when they were new. Best of luck in the hunt. You never know when one will pop up on the bay.

It's 9.  I wish Topps would do more of these.  Perhaps similar to the Comic Book Foldees of the 1960's, but with Wacky characters instead, starting with Original Series characters only.

Or just simply more mixed up's, again starting with Original Series characters only.  There are so many possiblities.  And these looked great in Chrome.
