I don't think Clodfather and GPK are part of the same set, unless he added them later.  There were other Lost Wacky ventures leading up to 2005--I have a Gooya (unused from ANS1), and I'm trying to remember where that came from.

You may be right. I'm not sure. I do have the scans from a group of listings all sold by the same seller at the same time about 5 years ago. Most lost wackys or homemade wackys didn't have any copyrights. The GPK & Clodfather appear very similar to the others in the set, and considering them all being listed together, that was my guess. You have more direct knowledge of the creator & origin of the set. It would be cool to find out one way or another for sure. Maybe someone else has additional info?

I'd be interested in finding out more info about other lost (&/or homemade) wacky projects pre 2005 if you have any scans or info to share.

To me, the coolest item on Matt's table is shown below. It's the binder to the right of the one with all the premium stickers. If you look closely you can see that it is an entire binder of 1973 baseball error cards with the 1st series wacky checklist back. The binder contains something like 150-200 of them.  Incredible!

Yep, I inquired and he said that he got them all from one person. Unbelievable.

I will add my contribution to this. I had a trade with Matt. He needed some upper series stickers [I assume he was short on] and he also picked up a Grime Heavy and Bum Chex from me. In trade, I gave him these stickers and some $$ for an original series 2 display box. Box is in low grade, but that's OK with me (for now). At least there's now a purple box on my stack of OS boxes; doubt I'll ever upgrade it, but, oh, well. Here are a few pics I took of Matt's table showing some of his offerings (some may be Greg's, too). He was actually a bit light on inventory yesterday, if you can imagine that...

       


Thanks for the pics and allowing us midwesterners to live vicariously off you easterners.

Exactly, they are clearly all from a single source as they are all in nice shape and there are multiples of many. I wonder if it was a cut up sheet or sheets?

The odd part is there are cards from two different series. How does an error like that get repeated more than once?

The same printing house made the error and whatever series they were ordered to print just like white back variations with wackys.

I wonder how many of the new backpacks and flip flops he sells at these shows?  Seems like a lot of work to lug it all around for small sales.

He must be blowing out a lot of this stuff at a loss.  The Pajamas that are stuff in the boxes like garbage are 5 for $20.  Didn't they cost much more when they first came out?

He's a merchant, pure and simple.  Small sales, large sales.  They all equate to total sales.  Besides, its always good to throw the fans/collectors a few bones now and again.  One has a larger customer base and captures and maintains their interest and attention.  Although I might become irked by some of Matt Stock's auctions - simply because I can't afford to bid really high - I have gotten some deals from him.  With Topps, however, everything always seems to be "Topp" dollar - and no bones thrown at all.  Perhaps Topps could take a few lessons from Matt Stock in regard to keeping the fans' interest and spirit alive.
