WEIRD WHEELS RETURNING!!!

Greetings fans of the non sports cards universe! I would like to introduce myself... my name is Greg Panneitz and I just completed the acquisition of the trademark " WEIRD WHEELS" I have been very active with CARtoons magazine for the past 4 years and decided to add more visual art to my toony portfolio. What a better way to feed my cARTistic soul with bringing back such an iconic brand! This will not be one of those..yeah yeah whatever deals, I promise you that! I have been working with original artist Gary Hallgren and he is excited to be a part of this as well! I have also been approached by artists in the industry as well and am super stoked to get this project "rolling" again after almost 40 years!!! Big plans on the board...some familiar and some never been done before in the non sports cards community!!! That is all for now. Thank-you - GP

Great news! Keep us posted.

I really don't remember buying them, but I still have my Weird Wheels cards from way back. At least.... I think I do   :]

These'll be better than any new Wacky Packs, most likely.

...if any even come out this year.

Congrats on resurrecting Weird Wheels! I wrote an article on them for the Wrapper Non Sport magazine back in 2005. I knew of Gary's involvement, but I wasn't sure to what extent. His initials are on two of the cards from the 1980 set. #23 and #46.  It was one of the last series that Norm Saunders worked on for Topps. #25 has Norm's signature.

Here is the backside of the PHILLY NON-SPORTS CARD SHOW exclusive Weird Wheels promo card being handed out at the gate. The card itself is a temporary tattoo of the wax pack cover for the upcoming set. Be sure to check out the show!
