I noticed a bunch of new pin-up girl parodies too. Is there a checklist for these or do the artists just keep producing them continually?

Of course there is no checklist now.  That will come later as the "Lost Pinups Checklist".

There are checklists for each of the four variation releases. They are on  the bay for your perusal.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the artists behind each of the Lost Wacky Cards in sets 1 - 4?

Thanks,  Andrew

Hard to comprehend how much $$$ the LW , WP Boxes and Variation Wacky Sets are selling for.  I like the LW and Boxes sets ; but why pay $300 when they came way down in price in the past. Must be some newbies or gotta have it now people.  Go figure.

I would put it towards the gotta have it now people.  No matter what the cost they have to be first.  I am sure there are plenty of sets for whoever wants one.

On the flip side of the coin, it is nerve-wracking waiting a year as Matt patiently, patiently, ever so patiently lists each set one by one by one!  Hmmm.  Anticipation or frustration?

Really?!! I was almost positive these were produced using a high-end Epson color laser printer or something. No plates are used for that.

Shill bidding still going on with Lost Wacky auctions. When you see a crazy high price it's always Jabish, a***i(2816) being run up by n***o(1649).

 A search of the bidding history of n***o(1649)
shows that bidder has made 369 bids this month with 49% of them on knight_collectibles and 50% of
the bids being placed with apg227, just a major coincidence that those are Matt's Lost Wacky accounts.
Totally dishonest practice of selling bootleg items and shill bidding a buyer to create a fake market.

It's 7:53 EST and both of them are at it this very minute.

Both are bidding on the blue Trump playing cards and the red Trump playing cards going off tonight - and - both are bidding on a double red/blue Trump cards going off 2 days from now (which I find kind of odd.)  In addition, they're bidding on nearly everything else:  the printing plate, LW4 set, polka dot panties Ovary Show, etc., etc..

a***i(2816) is also in the process of outbidding everyone on the pin up variations over at Knight Collectables.

Gee, I wonder if they'll actually win?

Interesting how a***i(2819) not only outbid everyone on the red Trump card ($42,) but also the blue Trump card ($47) - and the double red and blue Trump cards ($184.91) - for a grand total of $271.91.



Gosh, some people just can't seem to get enough of Trump!

Interesting how a***i has 41% bidding activity with that seller and n***o has 42%.  Both have a 30-day bid history only on wacky packages, and a***i has won all but five auctions while n***o has won only three.

Also the seller apg227 has 480 positive, 2 neutral, and 1 negative feedback entries, but only a score of 150 -- which would indicate a lot of duplicate feeback (same buyer, same ebay week).  The seller also only has one feedback as a buyer in the last six months, and only one more in the last year.

Despite 483 feedback entries, the seller has only left 93 feedback entries (only 70 as a seller), which would also indicate a lot of items from the same buyer.

This doesn't prove collaboration, but it sure indicates some very non-standard results.

Could also indicate a ""distaste" for leaving feedback.

...but someone here chastised me for suggesting the series 1 ludlows knight collectibles was selling were possibly fake given the ability to print lost wackys with ludlow backs and given the propensity to be dishonest with shilling....yeah, major leap of faith I made.
Contact me at bandaches@yahoo.com as I have tons of wackys for sale!

I can see the resemblance.  I think it looks a lot like Roseanne Barr too.

LOVE The Californians:

"I said go home, Devin! Get back on San Vicente, take it to the 10 then switch over to the 405 north and let it dump you out to Mulholland where you belong!"

Good eye. I knew the resemblance was strong. You nailed the apparent source for the parody.

I noticed that one of the four card panels being sold has the sticker for the pack for Boxes Release 16. That means there will be quite a few of the Box cards to buy.

I wonder who will keep up with those releases? That will get pricey. I like them and plan on continuing to buy them ; but don't know who far I will go. I have 1 - 6 at present and really like the puzzles and cards. They are a nice addition to my collection.  Series 5 has Chrome as the puzzle with a purple background. So cool!

Are these going to be sold normally to anyone who wants a full set?  I keep seeing on eBay
partial subsets here and there, and then the occasional "blue set", "yellow set", etc., but
they're up for bids, not for sale per se, and when you try and place a bid, naturally you're outbid!
(go figure, we've talked about this already).

Seriously, I'm interested in them just for the sake of them, but why is getting themt being made so hard on us?

I don't get it....  Does anyone know if they are indeed available elsewhere?
