   I mean, look what happened in coins, too.  They all get graded by the main organization of trust... which eventually can't be trusted anymore, so the coins aren't worth as much unless they now have a green CAC sticker on them too.   

First I ever heard of a "CAC" sticker.   Wow, greed in America just keeps topping itself!   "The old way of grading is useless!   Now you must have this NEW, improved grading!", said the company that invented both types of grading, but under different names of course.

Has there been any Wacky parodies of the pharma companies yet?  Or have they decided not to even go there for fear of being cancelled?

Actually, early in the ANS run, Advil, Aleve, Robutussin and Metamucil were parodied (as Anvil, Alive, Robotussin and Metalmucil, respectively). After that, as far as I know, nothing until the 2020 All New Weekly Series (Sudafed=Buddafed) and the 2022 All New Monthly Series (Benadril=Benadrool, Robutussin (again)=Rabbitussin and Excedrin=Excedrain). That's all I can remember for now, medicine-wise.

Does anyone else remember anything else from the modern run I may have missed?

Related to PSA….i see a seller has almost the entire 8th series for sale on e-bay. Most are slabbed at PSA grade 8. Can someone enlighten me as to why certain titles, like Yicks and Kleenex, are listed at $40-45, while other titles like Kentucky Fried Fingers are listed at $80 in the exact same grade? I dont think they are rare or short print titles…does seller think certain titles are more desirable or maybe rarer in high grade?

Such differences reflect the individual card populations in high grade and/or the popularity of the title.

If I remember right, Kentucky was also one of the slightly-shorter print titles, too.  I think all the series had a few that were printed at a 4/5 ratio or something... right?  Kentucky, Paid, Cheep, Hexlax, and Smoochers I remember being much harder than the rest.  But I can't remember the list now.

Well, I meant the more politically-charged companies involved in current events.  But I'm guessing not.

Yes, i have now read somewhere that Kentucky Fried Fingers (and a few other titles) appeared on the sheets only 80 percent as often as most titles. (4 of them per sheet compared to 5 per sheet of other titles.) seems odd that 20 percent less common equals twice the price. Seems Paul Maul is right, maybe its more popular and/or harder to find in high grade. Its also possible that minimally less common equates to maximum price gouging opportunity…

Kentucky Fried Fingers costs more in high grade almost certainly because it is difficult to find centered.
