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.
I got the five McSnoremick pieces in one pack, and the four Buck Tales in the other.

Why are the silvers and gold now pulling over $800?

Because there is one person that is determined to win one of every title, regardless of cost, of both the golds and silvers.
And so far they have.
The other collectors that want to win one, any one, just keep pushing the bids higher and higher, but always lose.
About $23K spent so far, and there are still a few more titles to go for complete sets of both.
Round 2 should go for a lot less.

I can see one person putting in a crazy bid; but for someone else to also agree to push the auction with the risk of having to drop 700 on a card is pretty bizarre.
Another weird Lost Wacky situation. I guess we need to expect the atypical with these cards.

I am assuming this must be a last resort for their collection. Maybe they have everything else.

Maybe they have a big wallet.

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.

Based on his nice gesture, IMO, if you emailed him & asked if the puzzles were supposed to be split or not in the packs (I don't think they are supposed to be, since his ebay auctions usually say which puzzle is in the pack) I'm sure he would send you the puzzle pieces to complete 1 or the other. Sounds like the 2 variation packs got mixed up somehow.

I've been trying to understand what the big appeal is over "Lost Wacky" Series 3 and I really don't get it. For the most part, the gags and art have been getting progressively inferior since series 1. And based on the ridiculous ebay sales, we'll undoubtedly see a Series 4 (and probably more). The question now, is how many more people are going to get lured into "collecting them all". Remember folks, they're "lost" for a reason.

Your cancelled Halloween wackies from last fall will undoubtedly be treasured Lost Wackys if you are ever allowed to show them to us ;)

Almost true. They may be "lost" but they're not wackys.

Hopefully someday the art will see the light of day.

It's a total sham. He's running up his own auctions. Probably hasn't sold a thing.

Wouldn't that be costing him a lot in ebay fees?
