1970s Wacky Vending Egg RARE
« on: January 13, 2020, 09:21:44 PM »
I had only read about this wacky gumball/vending machine set here:
http://www.wacky-packages.net/wackypackages/1983-vending/

After reading the description on lostwacky.com, it appears there may have actually been 2 sets. The 1983 description says they are lick and stick, yet the ones I have are stickers. Since the other header card appears to be older, these examples may have been from the 70s and sold for 10c as the other header card indicates.

I had never actually seen one or heard of any fellow collectors who had any.

I purchased a collection a little while back and have some to sell. I have only one available of each of the following 6 titles:

Hawaiian Punks [SOLD]
Wormy Packages [SOLD]
Loggs [SOLD]
Rinkled Wrap [SOLD]
Blunder Bread [SOLD]
Bit-o-Money [SOLD]

I figured I'd post these here before listing on ebay.

I'm asking $85 ea. Which is $4 less than the highest auction price a few samples I sold on ebay recently went for. $4 insured first class shipping & no sales tax.

If anyone has any, I'm also interested in trading for 3 titles I don't have - Dums, Crakola & Footsie Roll.

Please PM if interested

Also, please PM or post in this thread if you have any additional info on this series, or if you have any examples from this series even if you don't want to sell or trade. I'd be interested in any additional information that's available.

I have 19 different titles. The info on Rusty's site suggests 3 additional ones, so 22 known so far. No way to confirm there aren't more though.

As I mentioned to you before, 22 seems like a likely number for the set size if they were actually produced by Topps. All Topps sheets have 11 columns, so set sizes in the absence of double prints will usually be multiples of 11.
