According to Greg's Site http://www.wackypackages.org/

The release dates are as follows:

LW1 - 2005
LW2 - 2008
LW3 - 2011

Release would be a rough term, maybe print date as they were never an official Topps Product

Good luck and always be WACKY!

I want to know if Matt get's BULK printing discounts...?

Let's hope so!  The poor man has to make a profit somewhere!


"...and if the Wardrobe cards of the Ovary Show will be scratch and Sniff ?"
"Cool!.....then we could tell how old the cards are....."

Now you guys are just being plain nasty!  ;D   

Or perhaps they could be scratch offs, like lottery tickets?  Scratch off the panties and reveal a winning prize!

Added note: Rabid Shaver, you can be the first to test out the "Ovary Show" scratch and sniff.  I wouldn't want to take that privilege away from you.  Undoubtedly this must be the oldest of the Lost Wackys.

Incredibly helpful, thanks! Looking through 'series 3' you can tell it's garbage time, whatever crap they had to put in there aside from a few I really like such as "Juju Bats".

Well, there's a sucker born every minute...

Pretty sure I have a JuJu Bats sticker from an older pack of "Lost Wackys," back from Greg's forum.

Thanks for doing this! Much appreciated! I would have bought them when they were new, but I didn't know they existed.

and the good times keep on rolling - here comes the silvers.
kind of shocked there are only 5 of each, should have been 10 or 25.
really, just printing money at this point, as that high bidder on all of the cards doesn't seem to have an upper limit to what they're willing to pay.

I can't believe they called those silvers and not foils. That background looks like used aluminum foil!

It's interesting that the gold cards have several different backgrounds.

different backgrounds for all of them
as Soremel mentioned, it's like looking at Google Image results for 'silver foil' or 'gold foil'

I invested in an extra set of the first 5 packs, and now they might not even be worth what I paid for them.  That does tick me off.  Anyone here know how to print boxes?  Maybe we can use mine as a template and start selling those   >:D

Have the prices on the original lost wacky sets dropped a lot? I sold mine 8 months ago at a huge profit from what I paid for them.

Matt just sent these to me.

Nice gesture. Even though people say he makes them.

So tempting to open, but I know I shouldn't.

Well, I opened them. Since they were free, I figured it wasn't really a loss. I have a full LW3 set now, but two incomplete puzzles.

Incomplete puzzles?  That did not used to be the case with LW1 and LW2.  What titles?

4/9 Buck Tales, 5/9 McSnoremick. Direct correlation of pieces. (If the Buck Tales pieces were replaced by pieces for McSnoremick in the same spot, then I'd have a full McSnoremick puzzle.)

That's rough. Its not like you can just pick up the missing pieces without dropping some real money.

I find that incredible and insulting at the same time. 

These have been proven to be "non-official" and someone is printing
them, using artists' work, to pass them off as real, and then they
have the nerve to "short" you a piece or two, so you feel required
to buy more packs to complete your "non-official" set.

Maybe it's just me....

It might make those who bought unopened packs of the Lost Wackys 3rd series, with the intent of keeping them sealed, wonder whether or not their sealed packs contain complete puzzles (or sets).

I'm wondering how deep some of the current bidders on the gold & silver versions are willing to go... if one is intending on putting together a complete set, they will need to buy both the regular gold and silver limited editions, as well as their "ALT" counterparts.

I was planning on keeping them sealed for their resale value. But then I wondered.. hm? Maybe there's one of those gold ones in there. When I sent a thank you message, I mentioned about keeping them sealed or not. He said that he thinks I should open them.

Now likely a week later, I think I might as well open them. He graciously sent them to me for free, when he is selling them for almost two-hundred a pop, and he suggested I open them. So, I did it. After all, I didn't really spend money on them.

Of course, my parents aren't too jazzed with Ovary Show, but at least it is censored.

I might be one of the only ones on the forum who has opened one, as it sounds, eh?

I'm assuming he met you at Allentown, and knows you are a minor.  In that case, he should NOT have sent you Ovary Show, even censored.

So, what other titles and puzzle pieces were in each orange and green LW packs?

Yes, I met him at Allentown. Ovary was in a pack of course, but I guess everyone is assuming that he's producing them, so he could let it out for me? Doubt it.

The normal thirty cards were among the two packs. Should have check which, but too late. Also had two stickers with gum that was "Still Lost". If you want me to post pics, I'll try my best. My scanner is kinda being an issue right now, so I'd have to take pictures with my cell phone if that's fine.

He wasn't charging you, and in my opinion he should have opened the pack and removed Ovary Show.  Heck, if he had opened the packs, maybe you'd have gotten a complete puzzle.

I looked at his newest auction, and it says 27 cards, and there are scans.  I was just curious whether you found the nine mismatched puzzle pieces in the same pack, or whether there were a few in each pack.
