LOL . I was wondering if that was yours.
Actually, so was I...and now, I'm thinkin' maybe not. I really thought mine had that corner damage, but I just checked and it does not. Hmmmm. Mine also has a price sticker on the upper right, but I'm certain there's some Photoshop clean up been done here, regardless. C'est la vie. Maybe they're off the hook on my royalties.  hehehe

I have the original art to the lost title "Gooya".  I have been thinking of listing it on Ebay.

Hopefully someday the art will see the light of day.

So the latest listing for the uncut sheet of lost wacky boxes has the Topps logo on the boxes.  Isn't that an infringement of copyright?

Topps doesn't seem to care about any of this, including the X-rated items being listed, sometimes even with the Topps name in the item title.

It will be fun trying to spot which boxes are mine!

I was thinking the same thing! Last year, Greg asked me for high-resolution scans of my Wacky Ads 5 cent box. He had alluded to the possibility of doing an upgraded WP box poster, but after seeing these, I have a feeling that the scans may be used for something else!

They are basically printing money.  And when they run out, they can just print more.  But, Topps doesn't mind; much more important to quash independent cards that were offered at a fraction of the price these single cards are selling for.

I saw that auction.  That is insane.  Paying over 1300 bucks for something that was just made, and not by Tops is crazy.  Just think of all of the very cool Original series stuff you could have purchased with that cash.  Wow.
Still looking for Series 17

Apparently not.  I'm still surprised that ebay hasn't required that the Ovary Show cards be moved to the adult section.

This Topps allows, but Halloween cards that aren't even called "Wackys" must be shredded.  I am disgusted.

LOLOL. a bonus card for the cancelled WP-Star Wars set. the bar just keeps going lower and lower with these things.

I can only hope we'll eventually get to see an image for "crumpled WP wrapper in parking lot outside a convenience store, circa '73"

I gotta admit that I saw this one and just chuckled. 

It IS a "Lost Wacky" of sorts.  A legit cancelled series.  I consider the person creating and selling these to be pretty audacious and a bit ridiculous.  But not as ridiculous as the folks buying them.

The irony is I have much more interest in a wacky release featuring display boxes, wrappers or that NY Magazine cover than the majority of the regular wacky releases we've seen lately.

it's not even in the Lost Wacky set, which is funny.
Just one of the "WP Boxes" set bonus cards, along with the fictitious '92 box.

I managed to get one of these magazines many years ago.  I love that huge black background inset that has a lot of the series 3 Wacky's.  I love looking through it every now and then.

I just had a terrifying thought.  Years ago, I visited the grave site of Norm Saunders, as he retired to and was buried in my home town in Nebraska.  I believe I posted photos of the headstone to the old Wacky forum around a decade ago.  Is someone going to take a photo of Norm's headstone, throw a thick border around it and call IT a "Lost Wacky"?

The photoshop attempt to fill in the hair where the "Wacky Packages Postcards" text was removed on the Jay Day card, looks like a poorly made toupe.
