Wacky Wednesday's are on the Way!

Can't say more but starting next Wednesday be on the lookout to a return to prominence for Wacky Packages. Hope everyone will be on board. If all goes well it means more WP's in our future. Courtesy of myself, Brent, Smokin Joe, Neil and Joe Simko.

I've been enjoying the current five-member team approach with the weekly GPK holiday sets.
Looking forward to seeing the same assortment of talent geared towards Wackys every week! They'll be a winner!

YES!!!!

Dave,

MAYBE Topps will add Wacky Packages to the regular site instead of placing their shameful child in the closet crammed under GPK!

Sorry for the snarkiness, they hide WPs like they are ashamed of them on their site.

Even the April Fools PCs were HARD TO FIND if I did not have a link..... They REALLLLLY Need to fix this....

My 2 Cents

  That is a powerful statement of intent. Return to Prominence with Top Five Artists.   Thanks for creating excitement during Lockdown 2020!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they are straightforward Wackys and not political in nature.

Just saw this post... trying to catch up after a long vacation from Wackys.  Did this ever materialize?  Sounds interesting anyway.

These are the new Weekly series discussed in this thread:

They're great, but they come out so fast it's hard to just appreciate them.

That's *exactly* how I feel! I haven't even had the time to sit down and give them a good stare. The brief looks have been impressive, I'm looking forward to it all being over for a proper intake.

Excellent point.  I focus so much on acquiring and completeness that I forget to really enjoy the Wacky itself - the artwork and the humor.

I haven't checked, Scott, but I bet you could pick up the weekly base sets pretty cheaply on ebay or by asking around on the forum.  I think we're now 11 sets of five cards (not counting the various backs and bonus cards) into this new release.

I guess this'll have to be a future acquisition or trade.  It's been fun popping onto the forum now & then, but with everything going on in the world, my purchasing has been all about 'real' groceries than parodied groceries as of late.  Never know what's going to happen month by month anymore.  Luckily, we haven't seen lay-offs yet, and I hope none of you guys have had the misfortune to lose your jobs or businesses in all this.  I just can't buy Wackys in Crazy times. (Crazy Covers in Wacky times might be OK, though).
