I'll tack on to this thread with this: does anyone know what these are or where they came from? I don't recall ever seeing them.

I have not seen these before either. No apparent logos or copyrights, etc. No surprise there.

This is most likely it.

http://www.wacky-packages.net/wackypackages/1983-vending/

This might be out dated, but the page says only the 11 titles listed below have been found in this rare set, so the Baby Runt in this group and maybe others might be very rare, for some hard-core completist collector out there.

So, what ever happened to THIS rare Wacky item?  Anyone ever turn up the "Beastball" version?...

I have one of the wacky trucks that I bought from ebay at least 10 years ago.   Currently I stored everything away but it came in a partially opened pack and the pack contained 3 different wacky package panels (if i remember correctly) panels that you could place on the side of the truck.  One was beastball. If I can easily pull it out, I will post some pictures.

I see several titles in the auction that are not listed on Rusty's page.  And a few others that don't appear to be Wackys at all.

Did you mean to put Baby Runt between Ditch Boy and Dums? If so, then it needs fixing.

That's real nice. Looks like someone got to the seller and he ended it early. I hate when that happens and everyone else loses out on a fair shot to win it.

I hope Dave G. got those.  I remember those oddball Wacky items were his specialty back in the day & he had some of the only examples of some of those type of items.  Haven't seen those come up anywhere for a long long time.  Not sure how to grade them, though, as they're always going to be wrinkled up.

Just noticed this post... What item is this?  Did "FoolAid" appear on an OPC Reissue pack?  I don't remember that.

Silly me.  Sounded like there was yet another NEW discovery! 

What's the closest anyone's gotten to a genuine 13th Whiteback set?  That was always a wild legend-turned-real.  Seems like a set of whitebacks on that one would look really nice.

There were several uncut series 13 whiteback sheets floating around, a couple of them got cut up from what I hear.  I have found singles in the wild so not sure what counts as genuine whiteback set.  These are not normal cards though as I called out long ago.  The series 13 white back sticker part is made with like a see thru cello type of paper.  I posted pics somewhere hear long ago.  I am fairly certain all my series 13 whites have been this way.  You can't really tell for sure unless you peel a corner which seems sacrilegious but I always thought the color looked off and now I know why.
Contact me at bandaches@yahoo.com as I have tons of wackys for sale!

Weird.  I've never seen a 13th White in person.  Strange that someone would have just thrown a couple cello-sheets in the mix at the factory & no one noticed. 

Anyone know what the fate of those Irish TEST packs (with the weird speckled dots on the front) is?  Did they all get opened & turned into sets, or are some still floating around?  I had one of the cleanest of the bunch, but gave it away as a gift.  Probably should have PSA graded it first to ensure it wouldn't get opened.

Awesome to know that at least one survived.  Makes me miss mine a bit.  I had the one with very little of the black dots on it.  Can't remember what was visible through the pack, though.
