Dr. Ono,

Thanks for the shout out!  Ironically I was thinking about how they have screwed us out of binders for the last couple of years and how I will probably have to create ANOTHER custom one..... AGAIN!

May be Wacky Force Be With You!

Re-hashing the same card over and over again does not deserve my money - do something creative:

1. Lenticuler(??) with the Original Wacky and the actual product (33 Cards)
2. Artist signed cards (33 avail - limit to 25 signed per 33 cards)
3. Random inserts for a uncut sheet signed by all the artists
4. 3-D Cards (33 avail and only 1:1000 in Collector only with 25 of each)

That is IT!

Celebrate the past and KEEP IT SIMPLE!!!!

P.S. . . . . Kool Mail In stuff from the real wax wrappers and ....... GUM BABY!!!

I love #1!  And I have a cynical one to add:

5. The Wacky Chrome refractor uncut sheet that was supposed to be obtainable with the redemption cards that Topps promised but never delivered.

Same here. I think all of those"work" well as Wackys. Especially love Reaganets. It makes me laugh for some reason.

And from 2005

I found this one offensive to me since Im Cuban and basically this guy is a mass murder to my people. His image just brings up a really bad time for my family. It was very strange how this gag got this far.

Those are not in the set. I don;t even know what Stingers is. All ten are new (old) Old School gags

I seem to remember in one of the OLDS posts on one of the checklists(I don't know which one) that Stingers was mentioned. Other than that,that's all I know. I don't even know what it looks like. I'll find out which one it is and get back to you.   Update:Stingers was mentioned in the post WP Old School 5 thread-SPOILERS(reply #10(6-5-14)).

I just looked and it's a gag Garry Browning did that Darryl wanted to be in the set. He makes lots of suggestions for different series.

Okay,thanks for telling me. I didn't even know it wasn't an actual sticker. That means the only one left to release is SpaghettoOs.

When I was a kid, I kept hoping to find a Wacky of SpaghettiOs, as they were something I loved.  It would be great if Old School 6 could include one that Topps will approve!

With 5 cards per bonus pack, this could be a nice, large subset.

Patrick, quite true.  I know the original series has been reprinted to death but could this be a first?  Has ANS ever been reprinted before?

Well, if the '80s description is correct, I'm guessing just the 1985 set and maybe some of the modified albums stickers?
Unless that really should have been the '00s in the write up?

If anyone finds a place that has a pre-sale for the blaster (or blister?) boxes, can you post it here?  I'm always for pre-ordering a few.

Muchas Gracias

Patrick, i believe it might be a typo.  The sales sheet describes it as best if the 00's and shows an ANS title.

Yep, you're right. I looked at the sales sheet again. Definitely '00s.
Seems like this could easily run 80-100 cards. Kind of hoping not, but we'll see.

Steel City Collectibles has the blaster up for pre-order. I trust they will be in abundance at Target also. That will be my play.

Celebrity Wacky Packages? They won't spoof real products!

Why not a lost Wackys subset? - even include a few of the never released 2014 Star Wars Wacky Packages entries!

Also: Will the Old School Wacky stickers in insert hobby packs be entries planned if there had been a Wacky Packages Old School 6th. series?

All the Old School stickers in the 50th set were from roughs I had already saved from previous series so yes, they would have been in OLDS6. I have all of OLDS 6 written and draw and am working on the paintings now.

I hope one of them is the Dolly Madison Zingers spoof like the one that someone did years back!

I was looking at the sell sheet for this release again and noticed the Gold Parallels are 1/1. Have we ever had 1/1 Gold Cards for the base set before?

I wonder what these cold cards will go for and how cool they will look? If they are the Mustard Type Golds we have had as of late I will not be interested. If they are metallic gold that will be pretty cool. If there is a title I really like maybe I will go after all versions this time.

The only 1/1 that I can think of would be the chrome superfractors.

So does that mean the Trump Building Blocks 1/1 Gold card will sell for $500?    ;)  I just hope they make the Gold ones look nice. No Mustard Please. :-*

I placed my pre-order with DA Cardworld for 3 Collector Boxes of this release. Price was $79.95 with free shipping for orders over $200. That was the best price I could find. I plan on buying at least 1 Gravity Feed at retail if I can find it in an excell shipping box at Target or it looks untouched on the shelf.  I will also buy 3 or 4 Blaster Boxes at retail. Hoping to pull some cool sketches, a Medallion card and a 1/1 Gold Base Card from these purchases. What are others planning to do?

I'm really looking forward to this big anniversary set. It'll be my ninth Wacky related set and I plan on really digging into this one. Most of my previous sets have been markers with a bit of acrylic but for this I plan on doing all acrylics. Mini paintings focusing only on the sixteen original series.

I am looking forward to the "Old School" subset, and some sketches, but haven't decided whether to buy a base set.  While I understand Topps' moves to reinvent Wackys for the current generation of kids, I was truly hoping that the anniversary set would be more of a tribute to the original Wackys.  Quite honestly, I wouldn't know Beyonce if she walked into my office, and I expect most of the celebrity Wackys are going to be lost on me.

Jason, 9 series is super impressive.  Your approach sounds like a blast!  I assume a bit of color as well?
