Any interest in a Wacky Packages Go the the Movies case break?
« on: January 11, 2018, 02:43:43 PM »
I'm trying to get the non-sports break guy at Blowout Cards to do a case break of Wacky or GPK.  Any interest here?

Wacky Packages case price - $620
8 spots for the hits
1 spot for Sepia parallels
1 spot for Yellow parallels
1 spot for Bronze parallels
1 spot for Black Ludlow Back
1 spot for Silver parallels
1 spot for Red Ludlow Back #d to 25, Hobby Collector Only
5 base spots - if collation is good each spot should get two sets.

That would be $37.50/$35.50 spot price


GPK is $675 a case.
8 for the hits
1 for the bruise parallels
1 for the spit parallels
1 for the bloody nose parallel
5 for base spots

If collation is good there should be 6 or 7 base sets so there could be a couple of snake picks. Not including the gold parallel just in case they are less than one per case.

That would be $47.50/$45.50 spot price


If interested, post in the thread here, and we can get this going:

The group break is up if anyone wants to buy 1 or more spot:

Good for set builder that don't want to pay for a full box or sketch collectors that want a chance at a case hit sketch for cheap.

if Topps hadn't destroyed the integrity of these Collector boxes to make a buck, this might be something I'd think about.
There used to be 3-4 hits per box, plus lots of bonus content and very few common cards - a collector's dream. Topps has turned them into glorified Hobby boxes - similarly jammed packed with common swill cards and reduced to just a measly single hit to make it special.

After some of the shit sketches I got with OLDS6,  37.50  Seems WAY to much at a CHANCE at a sketch.

Would love to, but common sense says NO!

I'm not exactly sure what the "spots" are, or what they get you, or what the cost is to buy in, but if there's not a guaranteed sketch in a collector's box, I see no reason to purchase a box.  Maybe I'll just buy a base set when the initial frenzy dies down.

My plan is to buy packs of these cards at retail only. It's still great to see ANY Wacky product hit store shelves.

I used to really enjoy that, but pack searchers have completely ruined it for me.

I feel your pain; but I go up against the searchers by attempting to beat them to the packs. If you follow this board you will know when the cards hit Target and can
pull the gravity feed out of an excell box and know you are the first. I always can pull that off in at least one store. You ask the front end mgr if they received their excell order yet and can they locate the box of wackys for you as you would like to purchase the box or most of it. They will try to help you.

Apparently the staff at Targets by you have different instructions than the ones near me  Here, they don't want me touching anything until it has been "officially packed out."  It's been a couple of years though, so maybe I'll try again.

I educate them a bit on Wackies and how much it means to me to find them in the wild. That helps to motivate them. Try educating them a little. Maybe bring in a few to show them what you are referring to. They will help you.

Well, I generally have them on my shirts if it is the weekend - hasn't helped much so far  :-\  But, I'll try.  Please LMK the next day I should check a Target.

Previews mag listed April, but I don't trust that anymore, as they had listed GPK as not until February, but they actually released this week.

nevermind.
I was looking at the pack insert odds, and they don't match up to a sure hit.
but the advertising does say one hit per box.

Well, group breaks are sort of for gamblers, I guess.  If you assume there's at least one good color or multi-panel sketch in a case (Topps sets usually have a case hit, no matter the genre) and you're in an 18-spot break like this one, your basically buying a lottery ticket for a chance at a case hit with 1:18 odds.

Of course, if you "lose", you still get cards, you just get to draft your pick at whatever spot you randomly land out of 18.  Extra hits snake back up, so the last picks get bonuses.

Breakdown:
8 spots for the hits
1 spot for Sepia parallels
1 spot for Yellow parallels
1 spot for Bronze parallels
1 spot for Black Ludlow Back
1 spot for Silver parallels
1 spot for Red Ludlow Back #d to 25, Hobby Collector Only
5 base spots - if collation is good each spot should get two sets.

I believe the collector boxes guarantee one hit, either a sketch or a numbered autograph.

Sketches, Autos and Plates are the tough hits, with maybe just 1 of each in a case, and all the remaining hits are the artifact cards (medallion, patch, etc.)
