So was the logic/reasoning for the copyright not being a real topps copyright ever discussed?  Lower case letters?  Is that common or did this knock off company who produced these just make a mistake?
Ern, I'm in the dark here:   what are the "these" in your last sentence.   I checked my WP Gallery photo of the glasses (with a magnifying glass) and the copyright is TOPPS, and I think all the glasses in these 3 current auctions have all caps.   Just curious.

Big Tom, your glasses are legit.  Have you compared yours to the ones listed on eBay tight now?  If so, are there any differences?
Still looking for Series 17

I am sure they are all legit, just licensed to someone else(not topps) to print back in the day and they screwed up the Topps copyright as I don't think I have seen Topps use lower case for chewing gum.

Are the glasses the “Holy Grail” of wacky merchandise? They seem to be the  most expensive….are they rarer than the toy trucks with Wacky graphics on the side? I have never seen one of the trucks for sale, only a legend and a photo….

if you believe stupid irrational bidding is not shill bidding then yes, glasses seem very expensive  For some reason I never got much into gadget wacky collecting.  I like the vintage shirts because I had one as a kid.  The keychains and all this stuff just doesn't appeal to me probably because there is zero nostalgia.  I found a sealed inner tube at a toy show which was cool but never had the desire to try to collect more of them.

I love the crazy original 1970s WP offshoot products! Got lots of that stuff. Probably some things no on else has. I do have two of these glasses as well. Hipton and Kook-Aid. I may have a third but I'd have to dig around and check.

They may be rarer, but I would prefer a Ratz, Cracked Animals, or 23 Jolly, each of which in nice condition would be well above this price. 

I don't think this auction will go much higher since no one has plunked down $1,295 for the Hipton or Kook Aid glasses yet.  That seller's accepting best offers on those, and no one has made one the buyer would accept yet.

23 jolly would be truly one of a kind!   >:D

Like the 4 Ratz. 

It should be 21 Jolly, which is probably the rarest of all.

     I'm not sure, should I apologize or something. Rude is rude.

I looked at this thread all the way to the end and I'm wondering how it all turned out in the end. I hope everyone finally got what they wanted.
