Talk about a conversation piece. It has a certain pedigree, IMO.

If I'm getting a sketch from an "artist" I expect it to be better than a child can draw or me for that matter.

Do you think maybe that the artist had his young son or daughter draw and color this sketch card?

I would be not pleased if that was the sketch I got.  Holy crap that is terrible.
Still looking for Series 17

And yet it sold for $50.  I wouldn't have paid $5.

That Scarburst doesn't even look like a wacky is any sense of the word. More like childish. How the hell did this guy get a spot on the sketch list??? I can do better!!!

The NIK! cards might not have gone over like expected but he's actually an excellent artist. Just has a very, very different style than what people are used to. His GPK sketches are actually very cool. They are a lot of fun, weird and experimental.

What the NIK! sketch cards look like - did anyone ever stop and think that's the general idea? That this is deliberate and they're supposed to look like what they look like just to be different?

I say let's ask Nik himself, if we can, and see what he says.

That's what I just said. He does a Nickelodeon / modern cartoon style. It's all deliberate.

It still looks like (to me, anyway) something a 4-year old would draw and color in.  I'm sure he's capable of much better, but it's just not reflected in the Wonky sketches.  Similar to some of the artists for Old School 4 that Topps never used again for sketches.  If you go to their website you are amazed with how good they are in comparison to what they sketched for Topps.

Was that from a pack, or was it a return?  It is awesome!

Is this the only one with a known variation? Guess everyone will have to look at their Ads a bit closer….

Hey Neil!

Do you have any more info on this variation? Are both hat colours out there? Were they printed at the same time?

From the poking around I've done so far, I have only added the Pepsea var difference to the list. Still haven't figured out Haunts, Nerdz, Voo-Doo or Glum. Think the problem will be that you won't find single cards on eBay...don't wanna buy whole sets to get one or two vars...

Yeah I agree with you. Will be interesting to see if each card has a variation or if it’s just the ones you’ve noticed so far.

Neil has said that there should be variations for all 7. So happy hunting to you all. Will be interesting to find out what are the variant cards and if they are short printed or have the same production run as the others
