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.

Come on Marc ...... I'm waiting for you to pull a Campy or Gadzooka altered art / mixed up character card! :)

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.

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.)

Thanks, Andrew

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.
