I just started using Gixen to do sniping and so far it has worked like a charm.

Thanks, I'll give it try.  I hope it's compatible with Macs.

I figure $10 each for tans and $15 each for whites, but those are solid NM prices so they should be adjusted down for condition.
thanks for the pricing tips!

Here's my latest haul. Some Old School art and a truck. Notice that the Wacky images on the trucks on the card are not the original art. They were all redone. I like their Gadzooka boy better than the real one!

Very nice!  Thanks for posting. Kind of cool how the artwork was re-done for the packaging.  Is there any printing on the back of the card?

And getting the artwork for those two titles is very nice too.

I had my eye on that myself, but once it went over $500 I was out of it! Congratulations Brad...Nice score!!! :o

I just got the lot in and it's pretty decent overall. Just after first glance about 50 are OC. There was one Grime Heavy OC in the bunch. Mostly middle series but quite a few 11-13 series. I haven't sorted them but overall I think this is a pretty good lot. I also got in a smaller lot that has quite a few 11-12 series so I have a lot of sorting to do. the Grime Heavy was a nice surprise but I would have liked a Pupsi, Bum, & Choke thrown in for good measure. Can't be too greedy ;)
Basically it cost about $1.50 per card so that's not too bad at all. I would say about half the cards are NM while others may have a bend or bumped corners. The 12th series box is a mess though.

Sounds like you got a pretty decent deal, the "Grime-Heavy" was a nice little (bonus) Congrats again. Have a WACKY WEEKEND...Ron.

I won this auction. The cards look really sharp in the pics. The dull looks like a restick but overall they all look pretty decent.

I bid on this one as well.  I topped out at $485, not even close to the final price.

That Mess is really nice. That is a tough one to find decent.

There is also a very fine line between grades. I think that boo hoo looks great in the pic but it only got a 6. I wonder what is wrong with it?

Yeah, it's why I am not hung up on grades. Anything that looks nice, I'll buy. I do like 7's and up, but the right looking 6 is fine with me. Usually 6 & 7's can be had for $7-$15 which is great because I'd pay that for a raw card that nice if it was from someone I trusted. The 8's start getting pricey so I only end up with them occasionally. Other times deals can be found when a card is marked off center, but it's not really that OC. With wackies, it's all over the map because of image size & copyright line, so a lot of times a card gets an OC when really it's just barely off, and well within the margin that should be allowed. I do not think PSA really understands these stickers.

A prime example of that would be the 6th series Clammy sticker.  There is so little space between the top black border of Clammy and the black border of the Baby Runt that is adjacent to it on the sheet, that it is impossible to find one that looks like it is centered.  Many Clammys have a small bit of the Baby Runt border showing at the top edge of the card.  That should automatically qualify the card as Miscut.  If you find one that does not show any of the Baby Runt border, it looks like it is off center, shifted towards the top.

I wold venture to guess that this is probably quite a rarity to find one that PSA has not qualified as OC:

Even on this one, you can see just a tiny bit of the Baby Runt border.

Great call! Yeah that one for sure. He notes only one graded higher with no qualifiers, so your theory is true.

I never realized that about Clammy. I just checked my keeper set and it's cut pretty close to the border. Although it's a beautiful specimen it might get the OC qualifier. I also have about 6 doubles and one is really nice centering but it has track marks through it and a small bend. My other 5 doubles are fairly miscut.

Very nice Mark! Your (Box) collection looks very simmular to mine...Even though I have no "Original Series" boxes (yet!) I have every single one after that (full) except for the (79-80) "OPC" reissues...Those are tough to find!!!

That's a nice item, and a cool collection!  My unopened Wacky material is limited to one of each reissue pack, some sealed ANS boxes and blisters, and Old School packs.  I know I'll give in and kill unopened original packs, and so will not buy those anymore.

This was the 1st series I ever had & (completed) when I was a child, I never thought I would own this series because of problems w/storage,  but since they are already (PSA Graded) I will not have to worry about that. BTW if anyone has the 4 titles I'm missing I would be interested, ecspecialy if they are already graded. Did I pay to much? :^) Hope everyone had a "Wacky Weekend" All my WACKY best...

Doesn't it cost between $5 and $8 to get cards graded and slabbed?  At the low end of this range, 26 cards would cost $130 so I would say you did great but the seller may have taken a hit on these!  Of course, maybe it is cheaper when you send in large quantities to be graded?
