Chad, congrats, that's what I like to hear!  Should be a blast and a chance for you to do a few more classic Wacky sketch cards.  I think they're still a few you haven't done!

Kelly Greider announced on one of the Facebook WP groups he would be doing sketches as well. I can't say I am familiar with his work, that I know of.

Have they ever solicited 'sketch cards' from the collectors or had sketch card contests, sold packs of blank sketch cards, etc?  Always thought that would be cool to draw some, and collect some from prominent collectors.

Thanks everyone. These four are called Loaded. The loaded 4 card puzzles will be in the blaster boxes. I did all mine in color. Here's more!

Thanks sharing. There's a pretty good reason to pick up some Blasters.  I have some coming.  I hope to score a 4 card sketch set. I did that once a few years ago. It was quite the rush.

I am assuming the 4 card loadeds will be in Blaster boxes. That is how it's done with Garbage Pail kids.

With the 2015 Wackys, the loaded packs were in the Collector boxes.
 The current sell sheet only mentions the 2-wide panorama cards, so who knows.

Many have said it before but, its really a misnomer to call these sketch cards any more. In many cases, these are mini-paintings. Those of us who remember the days of black & white sketch cards going for $150 and more will shake our heads in disbelief as many of the beauties above may be hard pressed to pull $20 in auctions. I am sure the glut of previous sketches has affected what the artists can get for return cards.

I agree. I especially like the ones shown by Mike McHugh. Simple but still elegant.

I think I'd prefer a set of "printed" sketch cards over the 50th anniversary base set.

I think a set of printed sketch cards would be awesome!

A "best of" set of sketch images. You know, the ones that belong in the Louvre . . .

Is there a reason raisin is spelled "raison" on the side?

Thanks everyone. These four are called Loaded. The loaded 4 card puzzles will be in the blaster boxes.

Scheres, I'm unsure about the exact contents of blaster boxes and hobby boxes.

I assume one of the 4 card puzzles would be in a box? If so, it seems like such a long shot to get all 4. Please enlighten me.

I hope to score a 4 card sketch set. I did that once a few years ago. It was quite the rush.

Andrew, how  many boxes did you purchase when you got your Demented set of 4?
