Bill, I mentioned this one earlier in this thread (but I think it bears repeating, lol).

While attending the spring Allentown show, I was lucky enough to be able to hold the original "Coca-Cobra" painting by Smokin' Joe in my very hands.  To a Wacky aficionado, this was akin to an art connoisseur holding, say, the "Mona Lisa."  (Thank you, Joe!)

At any rate, for the very first time, I noticed the second snake formed from the "tail" of the second capital "C."  Don't know if anyone else has picked up on this before, but figured I'd pass it along.



(Also, probably the wrong thread for this, but notice how wonderfully the bottle is backlit.)

To go along with BB's post - the published version in ANS3 was also the second rendition of the piece by Smokin' Joe.
Topps sold it off years ago, but it would have been cool to see them side by side.

I saw the Lost Wackys Series 3 promo on Matt Stock's eBay listing page along with other items from the same series.

All points bulletin!
All points bulletin!

An unknown "pink panties" artist has recently invaded WackyLand and defaced an iconic piece of history!  This culprit must be apprehended immediately, thrown into a pit of hot coals, and have his paintbrushes snapped in two!

Sadly, "Ovary Show" ain't showing anything anymore...

Man, you're good, Patrick!  I don't know how you find this stuff sometimes.  Thanks!
