I didn't know the 16s were from Matt, just the Paydough and Dud.

Oh, I didn't know that I didn't reference him before.

You're welcome! Glad I could get you started down that path...and congrats on your 1-15. Big accomplishment!

Thanks! I really like the puzzle. Maybe I'll start piecing the puzzles together for a true 1-15.

I have many extra mid series puzzles you could have affordably.

If anyone has an extra promo pack from yesterday, send me a PM. I need it for a member that couldn't attend.

Some of you might be interested in the Choke Wagon that I bought as an upgrade...

That is nice!  Tough title to find centered like that.  Congratz!

Sweet score! It was great to chat with you, and your dad, about Wackys and music! I hope you guys can make it to the Spring show!

I didn't get to do much "shopping" at the show because I was anchored to my table for most of the duration, but I was able to find this rare gem in a stack that had been picked through at least 3 times before I got there! So, for $1.00, I now have my first Shedds card! (not the best condition, but, hey!, it's a Shedds!!)



My second score came to me, via Brother Shoe (a/k/a Pupsi-Cola, a/k/a Mark Shoemaker!) Mark offered me a great deal on this TM UK 2nd Series puzzle piece (love those green POTG checklists!!)




While this pack was NOT a show purchase, it was part of a few unopened pack discussions that arose during the course of the weekend. I promised Mark (NationalSpittoon) that I would post a photo of it. This pack was a $30.00 purchase, that I made through the "Wrapper" magazine, back in 1986.

And here are the two official Topps cards that were given out during the dinner. Part of a set of four, with the next two at the Spring show dinner.
The cards are connected, with the Creeps package in Heddy's candy bucket, and Heddy as a peep in the Creeps package. Limited to 100 cards.

Good observation, Patrick.  Do we know who the other three heads are?  That is, are they somebody famous?

from the GPKWorld site:  Both titles had to be reviewed by Topps and their lawyers; interestingly, they asked if the CREEPS faces were modeled after any real-life people; they weren't.

Sorry I missed the show.
That Die Cut pack is really nice and to top it off it was pretty cheap comparable to today's prices.
Hope to make the next show.
