It's San Diego Comic-Con 2019...

...but I don't think Topps has an SDCC booth this year nor any Topps giveaways at SDCC 2019.

Forgot to get my professional pass this year.  Wish I was there.  Would be cool to say hi to John Pound after so many years.  Good to know he's still involved.  Have they stopped producing new Wacky series all together?  Seems like I haven't seen them in Target for a long time.  Not that into the new stuff, really.  But it's fun to buy a few packs now and then just for old time sake.

I took the family and we had a blast.  Did get to meet John Pound and had him sign Burger Thing and a Badzooka.  Cool thing is that the Badzooka is a buy back from the Topps 75th Anniversary set and has a gold foil stamp in the corner.  I also got a signed exclusive Adam Bomb card and a signed copy of the Abrams book.  There was a fairly good GPK presence at the show but not a Wacky to be seen anywhere.

Soo Cool! I am glad to hear you and your family had a great time!   ;) ;)

John looks good.  Haven't seen him in at least 10 years.  Sad to hear that no Wackys were at the show, though.  If they ever come out with a Wacky Pack action-movie or something, that'll change.

Ha, too true!  Or even a Wacky web series would do a bit to grow the brand.  Right now there is such a glut of genre content that itís really only the high profile or highly promoted ones that get a lot of attention.  Thereís a show called Brooklyn 99 that had an off site experience and the lines for it was 100ís of people!  I had never even heard of the show but fans waited hours to win a pin or something!

one of my fave comedies for the last 6 years.
it made some headlines last year when Fox cancelled it and NBC picked it up within 24 hours.

I did spot one Wacky thing, in one of Joe Simko's photos. The Atomic Toybox booth used an old banner from when they sold Wacky postcards.

Patrick, well done!  I never would have spotted that!  Well in terms of Brooklyn 99 youíre in good company as the fans I spoke too were pretty hardcore about it.  What I donít get is the connection to Comic Con.  What I associate with Cons is genre material, superheroes, sci-fi, horror and fantasy and donít really see how a strait sitcom fits in.  There was also a Seinfeld off-site and again I donít see the connection.
