Got this too. The #38 version of Cracked, has a split in the border, but for $5, I can live with that

My 3 Old School Sketches. I really don't mind getting these more "Common" ones, as they are masterfully done, and Quisp Is one of my nostalgic icon heroes.

ThanksNeil, this is the full image


I have two more sets coming from a friend, I will Likely sell one more to a person on my list trying to get them at cost, and will keep the other for myself. I may end up keeping both though, too hard to decide right now, these are Addictive.

bOOBERRY! Alright, good stuff!

On a related note, here's an interesting trivia question:


General Mills made 4 cereals that were part of the same family: Booberry, Frankenberry and Count Chocula. What was the fourth?

[spoiler]Frute Brute, right?[/spoiler]

This also serves as a test of whether I am using the spoiler feature correctly!

The spoiler feature is kind of cool!  Anyway, I figured Neil meant Frute Brute since that was out in the 70's.  Yummy Mummy was in the 80's, I believe.  Count Chockula was my favorite of the group.

Yummy Mummy is the only other monster-themed cereal I can think of. Are there others beside the four General Mills cereals?

I got another "Old School" box this week for a total of 5, the (Sketch-Card) I got was a B/W "Pupsi-Dog" very cool! Made me glad I bought the box! I think the only (classic) "Wacky" characters of the B/W "Sketches" I like better are the "Quaker Oat Duck" That was my late fathers (Pops) favorite! I'd love to have that one! & I also like "Cap'n Crud" a lot! I did well on the (sketches) out of 5 "boxes" I got 4 classic characters & no doubles not to shabby! LOL! Take care...RonZ 8)

greg and I have been to the shows, all will be fine, you should go!  I think it is a pinball weekend again so my focus will actually be on playing pinball for two days with a stopover at the show if I can keep my schedule open.

I agree, if you want to go Dave I wouldn't let that be the reason you decided not to. If you decide to go see if you can get Neil to go too.  The would be awesome if both of you were there at the same show!

ha! Maybe so  :P

I never go crazy with them, I don't like to pay premiums, but if the card is within the range I would pay for a loose one, I'll go for the slab. I don't mind off centering, so that puts a lot of the PSAs into my price range. I also Don't mind nice looking VG/EXs, so that helps too!
