Fall Philly Show-Oct 19th/20th.
« on: October 07, 2019, 01:45:42 PM »
Thought I would post my thread on the upcoming show, As always looking forward to getting together with what I consider the greatest collectors in the entire country. Let the head count begin. I'll be in attendance on Sat. but will head out after Day 1 is done to get together with my brother for the big game that night. Look forward to all replies.

If you mean quiet in the sense that there hasn't been many replies yet, that is something I'm used to when I post this thread. I wouldn't panic though, I'm expecting a few more members to chime in and let everyone know if they are attending or not.

1999 to 2019...

I just realized this year's show marks the 20th anniversary of that quintessential Philly Show in 1999 which had the biggest Wacky Collector gathering in history.  Save for maybe 2 or 3 people missing, just about every major collector at that time was there, and contributed to a giant temporary Wacky Pack museum, including probably 100 pieces of art and just about every uncut sheet and box known at the time.  Everything from simple checklists to stacks of original art changed hands, too.  Amazing that was 20 years ago.  I kept expecting "Ogre" from 'Revenge of the Nerds' to run through the grass taunting us once 'Wacky Packages Jeopardy' started, too.  But he wouldn't have stood a chance.

I'll be there as a guest artist and look forward to see everyone. It's always a fun, great time! I'll have a bunch of Wacky sketches among many other things.

I came across these Wacky art greeting cards when going through an older box of non original wacky packages related stuff.  Can anyone shed some light on them?  Does anyone know the artist?  I am hoping they are from Jay Lynch.  I am guessing they are from the only time I made it to the Philly Non Sport Show in (actually in Parsippany NJ I think) back in 1999.  I flew up from Tampa.  they were signed from collectors and dealers at the show.  Any info would be great.  Thanks.  Jeff MacIntyre

The Upchuck's card is from the first Wacky Packages reunion from 1999 at the Philly show. I just got a copy from eBay, mines signed by Jay Lynch and four other Wacky luminaries.

No idea about Stenchiladas, that's new to me!

I'm sure I have at least one of those cards in my collection.  I remember they gave out some kind of commemorative thing like that at the panel that Roxanne & Jay Lynch & Len Brown & other artists attended.  Looks like you only got a few of the collectors to sign it, though.  If it were a 'yearbook' of the Wacky Reunion event, it looks like you didn't stay long.  I remember everyone except maybe 2 or 3 of the major collectors was in attendance.  I just don't remember who was missing.  I didn't remember Dan being there, but your signature shows he was.  There was a big "Class Photo" taken, but I don't remember if that was at Jeff Weiss's house, or if I'm remembering the 1998 Chicago show.  That show was the "OTHER" stellar event & mini-Wacky gathering preceding 1999 Philly.  Hadn't thought of this stuff for years, but it's all coming back to me.

Being familiar with Jayís cartooning style from Bazooka Joe comics and other work, I can say with confidence that these are both his handiwork.

Hello show-goers, what's going on in Allentown? Any rare finds? Did you finally find the last card to finish a set? Anything you can't live without? Please share with those of us who couldn't make it  :D

Wacky Heaven? Maybe so, but it would have been nice to see some more forum members. In general, the place was really empty today. Not sure what that was about. I suppose they picked a bad weekend.

For me to be able to attend, they'd have to have the show on Long Island  :'(

Very nice score!  It is nice to see that there are still nice finds to be had in 2019!

I didn't arrive at the show til about 1 and only hung out til 3:30, Without a doubt my shortest attended show ever. There were 3 items I saw that were all out of my funds availability. 1 dealer had an ad set complete in ex condition for $895, would have taken 700. Another dealer had a set without the Good/Empty for 400 and the 3rd dealer had a small lot of checklists and singles ranging from the 2nd-12th for $200. For those not in attendance, the dates for the spring show are the 2nd/3rd of May.

A small lot of checklists and singles 2nd to 12th for $200?  what was that dealer smoking?  What condition was the good n empty in the $700 set?  that might have been worth picking up.  odd to see so many wacky ads in one show as they don't often come up.

Yes, I noted the ad set with Good and Empty. I didnít get to see the back, but the front looked really nice. The G&E was very vibrant. It wouldíve been a great price, especially if he would accept $700. I didnít even offer since I had nowhere near the funds.

For a show that was only just last week, I'm surprised there aren't any photos, reports of any good finds, (Other than what I posted). ETC. The last thing I want to do is jump to any conclusions, But it seems to me that this show doesn't seem to measure up to anyone's standards on here anymore. Collectors are always disappointed when the ones that are seasoned veterans that attend religiously don't show up because of distance, or not enough fun money, or whatever. And granted those are good reasons. But I really miss the shows of the past when every spring and fall show had 15 or 20 in attendance every time. For those who did make it last weekend, You all know it was the 71st show, C'mon guys, Not too many states in the good ol U.S. of A can say they are able to put a non-sport show on a frequent basis and if it weren't for the late Frank and Phyllis Reichter and Roxanne Toser and her great family involved, We wouldn't have had all of the fun times we have all shared over the last 25 or 30 yrs. Another complaint I have noticed is everybody that says, "Why don't we ever get any new dealers at this show". I'll admit I'd like to see some new faces as well, But let's face facts, the dealers that do show up for each show obviously love the hobby and doing the shows. So let's be grateful that they do make an appearance.
