Storage/display options
« on: July 28, 2021, 07:34:18 AM »
There is some information on here, but I'm just curious as to how collectors store/display their Wacky Packages? Maybe those are two different things. I use baseball card pages in three-ring binders, which is great for flipping through them and keeps from having to handle them so much. I decorated the binders with stickers and a title page. However, the binders take up quite a bit of shelf space. You have to alternate the direction in which you stack or stand them, or the spines accumulate and get out of whack. I have seen the cardboard boxes sized for cards, but this doesn't seem to offer much protection when you want to flip through them. Also, does anyone use rigid toploader sleeves? If so, what do you store the sleeves in? Any photos of your storage solutions would be cool.

Seriously, where did you get that semi truck? I would take it out and play with it, not keep it in a box.....

An eBay grab back in late '03, if I remember right. It was the first one "found" in the hobby, as I recall. At last count, there are six (6) others known. It's still sealed in its original packaging and sealed in the cereal box case for display. I'm thinking of putting it in a volcano, like the Juicedratic equation...lol.

And, to really answer your original question, I have my keeper sticker sets in binders/pages like you. I know some think this unsafe (and maybe it is), but I like having them accessible and easy to view. All my spares/extras are in cardboard card holders, like I showed my extra puzzle pieces on another thread.

And also, thanks to all who've complimented the display, I appreciate that you appreciate it. As long as someone asks, I'll post pics.

Cool to finally see a photo of the truck with other items around for scale.  I never realized they were that big.  I pictured them being the size of a Hotwheels scale truck from the available photos I've seen.  That's one Wacky item I never did own at any time.  Cool that you've kept track of how many there are out there, too.  6 known seems like there MUST be a "find" out there somewhere, as I can't imagine the production run being less than 10,000 units.  Amazing no one's found a case of old store stock yet.  Thanks for sharing.  Cool pix.

Here’s some pictures of my cabinet…











I do keep my other OS sets in penny sleeves inside of toploaders. I have them inside of toploader binders. My OS 15 and 16, however, I do not have space for in said binders. So they stay in the cabinet.

Yes, it is. My aunt is an optometrist (that’s the eye doctor, right?) and she was planning on getting rid of this cabinet when she moved. So, I took it and here it is.

Does anyone else have any of those custom mylar sleeves one of our buddies made for our Wacky Pack foldout poster sets?  My collection is still in those really long sleeves, although I'd hesitate to try to pull them out again.  And I remember getting a bunch of custom-sized plexi-glass boxes made exactly for the dimentions of certain Wacky 1-16 display boxes.  I only have an empty 8th series box anymore.  But I must have had at least 10 made over the years at a plastic shop nearby.  So, whoever got my old box collection probably still has those.  They worked well to keep the boxes totally impact-free, but the lids weren't hinged, so they came off if they were tipped upside down.

I thought those plastic box holders were a great idea for full boxes to allow for stacking. For empty boxes they really aren’t necessary, as empty boxes are light enough to be stacked or otherwise arranged without any real likelihood of damage….

I think you mean in a safe in a vault in a volcano. lol.

And everything else there looks really good, too.

LMAO.  That comment was funnier than most of the gags, man.  I lucked out & didn't get any heat for my collecting, but I've met many-a-spouse of all sorts of collectors of things.  They usually change their tune, though, when they see the silly cardboard turn into $, though.
