Fall Philly Show-Oct 19th/20th.
« on: October 07, 2019, 01:45:42 PM »
Thought I would post my thread on the upcoming show, As always looking forward to getting together with what I consider the greatest collectors in the entire country. Let the head count begin. I'll be in attendance on Sat. but will head out after Day 1 is done to get together with my brother for the big game that night. Look forward to all replies.

If you mean quiet in the sense that there hasn't been many replies yet, that is something I'm used to when I post this thread. I wouldn't panic though, I'm expecting a few more members to chime in and let everyone know if they are attending or not.

1999 to 2019...

I just realized this year's show marks the 20th anniversary of that quintessential Philly Show in 1999 which had the biggest Wacky Collector gathering in history.  Save for maybe 2 or 3 people missing, just about every major collector at that time was there, and contributed to a giant temporary Wacky Pack museum, including probably 100 pieces of art and just about every uncut sheet and box known at the time.  Everything from simple checklists to stacks of original art changed hands, too.  Amazing that was 20 years ago.  I kept expecting "Ogre" from 'Revenge of the Nerds' to run through the grass taunting us once 'Wacky Packages Jeopardy' started, too.  But he wouldn't have stood a chance.

I'll be there as a guest artist and look forward to see everyone. It's always a fun, great time! I'll have a bunch of Wacky sketches among many other things.

I came across these Wacky art greeting cards when going through an older box of non original wacky packages related stuff.  Can anyone shed some light on them?  Does anyone know the artist?  I am hoping they are from Jay Lynch.  I am guessing they are from the only time I made it to the Philly Non Sport Show in (actually in Parsippany NJ I think) back in 1999.  I flew up from Tampa.  they were signed from collectors and dealers at the show.  Any info would be great.  Thanks.  Jeff MacIntyre

The Upchuck's card is from the first Wacky Packages reunion from 1999 at the Philly show. I just got a copy from eBay, mines signed by Jay Lynch and four other Wacky luminaries.

No idea about Stenchiladas, that's new to me!

Apparently thereís measles exposure in Allentown. Pairs great with Wackys, I hear.

I'm sure I have at least one of those cards in my collection.  I remember they gave out some kind of commemorative thing like that at the panel that Roxanne & Jay Lynch & Len Brown & other artists attended.  Looks like you only got a few of the collectors to sign it, though.  If it were a 'yearbook' of the Wacky Reunion event, it looks like you didn't stay long.  I remember everyone except maybe 2 or 3 of the major collectors was in attendance.  I just don't remember who was missing.  I didn't remember Dan being there, but your signature shows he was.  There was a big "Class Photo" taken, but I don't remember if that was at Jeff Weiss's house, or if I'm remembering the 1998 Chicago show.  That show was the "OTHER" stellar event & mini-Wacky gathering preceding 1999 Philly.  Hadn't thought of this stuff for years, but it's all coming back to me.

Being familiar with Jayís cartooning style from Bazooka Joe comics and other work, I can say with confidence that these are both his handiwork.
