Here's something to keep you wondering, Mr. Boredom...



If I tell you anything more, you'll just be bored again, so that's it!

Thanks for being bored, NS!  This Seance Diet is awesome!  Has an OS vibe.  Reminds me a little of Scream Sicle, in terms of how the apparitions are drawn.

Particularly like the Smokin' Joe and Wormy Packages patch sets!

What's the deal with the can of Wormy Packages?  Can't say that I own it or am familiar with it.

Here's something fun.  I was recently with a pal who has come into possession of some 1960's trading card materials that have never changed hands before.  Not since being bought off the shelf in the 60's and archived.   

There was this, and a near complete set of the die-cuts as well... missing the two C&D unfortunately... so no Ratz or Cracked Animals. 

Full disclosure that I can't really disclose nearly anything else about them but suffice it to say, it was really cool to handle these.

Here's another piece I got to handle that I personally have never interacted with before - Wacky Ads display box!

I'd love to know the story behind that find. Too bad old school collectors always flattened display boxes.

Doesn't qualify as "rare", but a title many collectors probably don't have in their collection.

That was a May 2010 Halloween postcard promo.  It's a special title for me, as it was the first time I made it to a show and got to meet many of my forum friends in person.

Jean Nutty.

For some reason - and I've seen this recently happen at least twice, now - your images are not coming up in your posts, at least not for a long while, like hours.  I read your "Peepers" post earlier, and than again later, yet there was never any image.  Tonight, however, there is an image.  And I see that you never went back and modified your post to add an image later.  I really don't know what's going on, however I remember you had some trouble before and just thought I'd mention this latest image anomaly.

Fortunately enough, I do have a "Peepers" in my collection.  What's the story, however, on the "Bushman Navy Beans?"  I have never, ever come across this title before today.  Is it a sketch?  It seems much too good to be a sketch, yet if so, its one of the best I've ever seen.  Quirky, in a way, but I like it!

I am seeing the same behavior on lots of recent posts (including some of yours BB) where no image is displaying.

My own concept and gag worked with a well known respected artist to make these happen on my own.

Was very disappointed with the 50th so I decided to do things with respect to Norm Saunders and Jay Lynch.

More to come if you like them.

I'll leave this third one to really see where this is going.
Many of you dont know me but I really love Wackys very much and feel we have just been getting too much computer generated stuff that got away from the Wacky spirit.

Like Choke Wagon, I have also become disillusioned with certain titles/sets during the past few years and commissioned a friend to render the following original concept:

In due time my friend. I want to make all these and more available to all my friends here on the Wacky Forum. We have to let Topps know that the spirit of Norm And Jay still lives amongst us.

Here another one for laughs with me in the background and a familiar character

I would think printing and selling these would be a problem, particularly when using actual Topps characters and wacky names. I realize there is no profit motive, but if Neil is not allowed to sell non-Topps wackys, how can anyone else?

They're great though!

In the case of this one, I would make some minor modification as to no infringe on any proprietary issues. Apart from that I would not have a problem
Doing a fan friendly set as long as I don't use the Wacky name and call them something else.

I think the Neil issue was more of his working relationship with Topps and he doing a set.
Where I don't have any direct relationship in any capacity with Topps
