Wacky Packages pack opening simulator
« on: August 01, 2021, 12:52:49 PM »
Forgive me, but i recently saw somebody on one of these threads about opening OS packs post a link that let you click on a series and it opened a pack virtually. I cannot find that pack opening simulator anywhere…can someone re-post it or point me towards it?

It’s a lot of fun, but the results are not consistent with accumulated knowledge about Topps pack collation. Just sayin’ 😁

How so? I assume someone looked at sheets and calculated odds for frequency of a given title. I WOULD note that i was opening virtual 10th series packs, trying for Pupsi, and several times, i git a pack with only one sticker…don’t ever remember that happening back in the day…

The collation of stickers in packs follows a particular pattern on the sheet which this simulator ignores.

The one sticker thing (and sometimes missing gum) were intentional to reproduce the kinds of errors many of us remember experiencing back in the day.

I remember getting only one sticker a few times, but never no gum.  Broken gum, yes  :]
