Hey Ron, I saw those actions that that seller had up. He says they look 3D-ish. Do they? The picture of them did look really cool.
The "3D" is FANTASTIC! Buy one Jeff you will not regret it!

I won an auction for an unmolested, relatively blemish free uncut sheet of the 1980 fourth reissue series for the price of a large pizza.
I saw that but there is really not a scan to prove it to be blemish free and I also wonder how the shipper plans to ship it harm free for $7.

You may be right...Theese things are REALLY nice, if theese were official "Licenced" (Topps) merchandise I bet they would be in the $40-$60 range, they're that nice!

I hadn't even thought about checking the wrapper codes to see if these are the rare ones or not.  However, I think I remember someone saying that the rare ANS2 wrappers did not come from Party City but were actually found in WalMarts.  I'm sure that Fanatical and Sickly can set the record straight.
IIRC, initially the Party City packs were hard to find, but I think it was because at that time no one had really ever heard of that store before. But pretty soon the 777 coded packs that Party City was selling showed up elsewhere and soon they were a dime a dozen just like all the others.
The only remaining ANS2 pack that is tough to find is the 791 coded priced pack that was sold at Wal-Mart and CVS

Relatively blemish free: Doesn't look as if it was used as liner for a hamster cage, doesn't look like someone dropped an encyclopedia on it, doesn't look as if it was used as a saucer for granny having an afternoon coffee, doesn't look like it was used as a placemat during a chili eating contest, etc..,

Should arrive rolled in a tube but depending on how careful the USPS decides on being.....................

I have been meaning for some time to post this. I had obtained a wall mount display cabinet that can store 36 cards, it has double latch locks on the side to keep the door closed and dust out and it has black felt lining. Currently as you can see I have some of my favorite cereal titles on show.  I can change the theme around as needed.

That is fantastic!!!  Much better than my 20 card display frame, where it's a hassle and a half (and scratches the frame) to swap stuff out, and dust collects in all the grooves.

I will state, it's not real glass which helps with the weight being wall mounted but then it does attract glare.  The biggest factor for me is that it's wall mounted and held 36 cards, I was sold!  Call them, they do offer free UPS shipping on occasion.

Isn't Ted a major middleman(ie consignor)?  I figure the person who actually owned this choke Wagon took home like $40 after commission, no?

He is and the person he sold the card for probably took home even less then that when figuring in all the fee's.

The only thing better than seeing a scan is having the item in hand.

Looks very good to me although I am having issues framing it. I could easily slice it in two halves and frame one portion but that wouldn't be wise.

Ted does seem to have a lot of very nice condition cards…….a little pricey but good stuff if you're picky.

This was priced higher earlier in the day, like $45.00, but it's still extremely high for 1 cloth sticker……………….

Do'nt let the facts get in the way of your opinion Bum Chex!!! After the seller contacted me & told me there were 100+ more cards I offered him another $50 & he said and I quote "no a deal is a deal" BTW the seller did'nt like Ernies "attitude" and that's why he CHOSE to sell them to me!!! get your facts Brad! BTW Brad I have never made ONE PENNY off of WACKYS Can you say that hmmmm?? I'm strictly a collector & BTW another forum member contacted me & I had most of his needs  from this lot & I'm giving them to him for FREE!
P.S. the whole lot would grade overall in the EX to EX+ range & there were also (2) "Grime" (Heavy Chunks) variation! (EX+)

Yup, as you can see from my only communication with this seller before he sold to ron(which is listed below), my email to the seller is full of "attitude".

From: "Band Aches" <bandaches@yahoo.com>
To: "Thomas Hartwick" <thomashartwick@hotmail.com>
I live on the east coast.  Are all of your stickers tan backed or mix of tan and white backs?  Are you able to scan a few to give me an idea of the condition?  I'd be willing to pay thre $150 unseen for the 500 cards if I can return them within 3 days if not satisfied at my shipping expense.
