I've been on a roll lately, filling in gaps and indulging in interesting items:

- This week I got the 3 Ermsy Wackys I needed to go along with the 1 I bought from Topps. Honestly, when I ordered a pack of the Ermsy cards I didn't know what I was getting - they're weird but interesting.
- I just bought one of the Room Service Wackys  from eBay, looking at picking up another. Apparently, there's only 3 types known and the third is wicked rare.
- Also just got the latest GPK/Wacky mashups. I can't say I'm into these but I've got them all so far, so... in for a penny, in for a pound.

In recent months I've picked up:
- a nice set of original Ads, which I never owned, complete except for "Good & Empty".
- one of the rare Chrome variations (Demented)
- the PETA postcards done by Jay
- a nice color sketch of "Baby Hell" from the March 2022 monthly series
- the Stenchiladas greeting card drawn by Jay
- a Crudlow "Tireblown", the only variation I was missing from that Attacky series
- the "Glum & Empty" variation from the first Wonky Ads series
- one of those gold metal wacky medallions
- proper magnetic holders for all my 2014/2015/etc thick cards (patches & medallions)
- some more thin binders (boy do I have a lot of Wacky binders!)

I think I'll grab a nice Double wacky and perhaps a Plack next. I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want to go after all the original series puzzle variations (I have complete puzzles from when I was a kid but they're a mix of whatever I could find).

Nice, Mitch! I hope you find Good and Empty soon.

Btw, do you have Upchucks to go with Stenchiladas?

I do have Upchucks, that seems to be easier to find.

I have an extra of the wicked rare Room Service...however, one of the images was peeled off (not by me!), but if interested, I can prob give it to you pretty cheap.

I think I have an extra Hostess Pair (forget which one), if interested. And, I have vast quantities of puzzle pieces from 1-15. Give me a list of the specific ones you'd want and I can almost certainly fill your order for a reasonable price. Just let me know on any of the above.

Someone I know works for THE specific company that deals/owns with our beloved WP's. Every now and again the warehouse will offer the workers old stock that is getting tossed. From what she says many go for sports cards while bypassing wacky packages. The other day I get a sweet gift consisting of five binders (1, 4, 5, 9 & 13) along with a stack of series 9 postcards. I think it was called the birds edition or something as it didn't come with everything of the limited edition. I've never been a big fan of the binders. The postcards captured my curiosity in terms of the sketches and while many were legit doodles, two were very nice IMO.

I don't collect the binders myself, but I know people here would have liked an opportunity to get some of those from the warehouse surplus. Are you able to get more of that stuff for forum members?

I'm always trying. The last ones I received (pre c19) I gave away on here to four people I believe. If memory serves me right, I think there were a few folders, an uncut sheet and some small sheet-like think from the Mars Attacks series.

Hey you got one of my Gloomy Bears!  That was the first sketch series I ever did.  So glad you dug the card!

Oh it's a beauty for sure. That may be the first I have done by you so it is a nice addition to the collection.
