Yeah, Shoe, both MoldRush and I can't be right. Which is it? 

On second thought, never mind.









I'm beginning to think I never should have posted this and just stayed in bed all day-LOL.

Good comeback Mark.

BTW, saw your smiling face on the cover of a back issue of The Wrapper from 1995, currently listed on eBay (Books > Magazines category).  Looks like images from the most recent big card show at the time.

That's a keeper!

Since it has changed to a pick on Mark topic, I always wonder why you have







so much space before you write anything.  JK - you have our love, Mark.

You can always give them to the kids at Halloween.  Maybe it'll spawn a new generation of Wacky Packages lovers.

I have been doing that for years!  I have given out chrome and extra Old Schools over the few years.   I gave a Weakies refactor several years ago to a kid about 10 years old and he almost flipped!  He said and I quote, " Dude, I mean Sir!  That is soo cool!"

I've done that.  Also gave some to the neighbor's grandkids, my co-workers' kids, and two clerks at the Post Office who call me the Wacky Lady because I like to put Wacky stickers on my envelopes.  Some of older stickers no longer stay stuck, but the new Weekly stickers do!

I just gave my apartment manager a stack of wackys to give out during the "Covid trick or treat "....    which is the kids walking up to her to get candy....  this is the life we are living in now....  I remember as a kid in the early 70s, we would travel several blocks and come back with a huge bag of candy....

I liked getting candy, but getting Wackys would have been the BEST treat!!

Trust me, I'm used to being picked on on this forum, these people have known me for many yrs and I'm very proud to call them friends and some of them are just like family.

I only got cards of any kind a few times, but all were exciting gets which I remember fondly and still have most of to this day.

-Sugar Daddy Pro Faces (tiny skinny sportcards with photo player faces on cartoon bodies, inserted in Sugar Daddy pops)
-Fleer World Series (Laughlin cartoons)
-Fleer Team Action (football action scenes)

If I had gotten Wackys, forget it, I would have fainted.  Wackys and Halloween combined would have been an overdose of kiddie heaven.  And if there were monster titles included, like Playskull or Scary Lee, forget about it, call the paramedics.

I will never forget the Halloween that one house in my neighborhood was giving away wackys....4th series.    Me and my friends went there three times before we were afraid they would start to recognize us.

I've always assumed it's a pregnant pause. A way to build suspense for the big final








punchline.
