Wacky Packages Old School Series 10 plans?
« on: September 03, 2021, 04:39:30 PM »
I wonder if Topps is planning a Wacky Packages Old School Series 10 for before 2021 ends.

If it is, and slamjim is working on it, I bet OS10 will be either:
a) All Wacky Packages entries of 1990's products.
OR
b) A mix of 10 each of Wacky Packages entries - 1970's, 1980's, and 1990's products.

He'll probably do all 70s products like the previous first 7 sets.

I believe it was mentioned here very recently that this year’s set would be 1980s. I may be misremembering.

Where did you know this? As they say in most Wikipedia entries - "citation needed".

It's the 1980s for this time around.

Are we ever going to have a Wacky Packages Old School 1990's set? Maybe for OS11 in 2022?

I'd prefer a few 1980's sets before moving ahead.

I still want a 1940s or 1950s set. Maybe a special Topps Print On Demand one-time release?

Topps has to make Old School Wacky sets a quarterly thing first like the Monthly Wacky sets.

Okay, as a historian and fan of the 1940s-50s era, I would love an "Ipaina" or "Inpaina" toothpaste parody, but would many others know the references? Then again, maybe it doesn't really matter. Living in the Midwest, we didn't have several of the East Coast brands that are parodied in the 1970s Wackys. I still enjoyed them! Also, it would be cool to see parodies of still-extant products in their 1940s or 50s style - like the 1950s Tony the Tiger (Frosted Flakes).

Here's another product from the 1950's that could be spoofed in a Wacky Packages Old School prequel (1940's-1950's) series: A spoof of Stopette deodorant called "Chopette deodorant" (Stopette was a 1950's sponsor of the game show "What's My Line?")

Okay, let's say, for the sake of argument, that such a set was a realistic possibility. If it were to be done, how many on this forum would buy it? If we are to convince the powers that be to try such an experiment, we would need to show thathem that the sales would be worthwhile. How about a show of hands?

I know I would. I was just remembering some other non-Wacky parody sets that spoofed items from pre-1970s:

- Ballyhoo card game 1931. Ballyhoo was magazine at the time with spoof ads occasionally. The ads were incorporated into this card game.
   There is a thread on the form @   http://www.wackypackagesforum.com/index.php?topic=983.msg23922#msg23922
    Some pics from Rusty's site:   http://www.lostwackys.com/odd-stuff/ballyhoo-cards.htm

- Merry Mats 195?  Coasters with Magazine spoofs. Wile trying to find a good picture I found someone has a set for sale on Etsy:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/212570558/vintage-merry-mats-spoof-magazine?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_d-home_and_living-kitchen_and_dining-drink_and_barware-drinkware-coasters&utm_custom1=_k_Cj0KCQjw-NaJBhDsARIsAAja6dOUscMld_NjuSOl1tSZFHW6igw4RQJOrA7Ol6mmdypcyG1jTsyIqvIaAhaQEALw_wcB_k_&utm_content=go_1844702802_69827693455_346398273310_pla-498657395712_c__212570558_12768591&utm_custom2=1844702802&gclid=Cj0KCQjw-NaJBhDsARIsAAja6dOUscMld_NjuSOl1tSZFHW6igw4RQJOrA7Ol6mmdypcyG1jTsyIqvIaAhaQEALw_wcB

- Mr. Foney's Funnies  1960  Leaf - Some discussion and nice pictures from RawGoo, Pat, on a forum thread here:  http://www.wackypackagesforum.com/index.php?topic=6162.35

- Wacky Ricky Packages - 2015  aka the Canadian Wackie set - Forum member, Electric Slave, put out a homemade set that I think is very nice and has a great nostalgic feel. Many of the items parodied date back to the 50's and 60's . There is a forum thread where Rick introduced and sold them:

It's Mr. Baloney's Comics, btw, and they were the backs of a Canadian parody trading card series called Baloney Ads. Mr. Foney's Funnies were the backs of Foney Ads, the U.S. counterpart to Baloney Ads. They both came out in the same year (1960), but from two different companies (Foney Ads from Leaf and Baloney Ads from Goodies Products). Baloney Ads was also a modified version of Foney Ads, too. Even the numbers of cards in each set were different - Foney Ads had 72 cards and Baloney Ads had 52 cards.

I would probably be more interested in a 1960s Old School set first since I was actually alive then.  However, I would buy a 1940s-1950s Really Really Old School set, if nothing else, to see what products I would recognize--with different, earlier packaging, of course, which would be interesting, too.

I've already got all this mapped out through the next year or so which includes these ideas. Lots of big Old School stuff happening after the next set drops.

So in 2022 we could have a monthly Wacky Packages Old School series besides the current monthly Wacky Packages series? Which includes each month a different decade of Wacky entries for the Old School monthly series?

Monthly would be too ambitious. Dave has to illustrate all those parodies.

Are they considering using the 1985 box template to sell/ship them in? or some box/pack combo?

Having the mini box look like the 1985 box is my goal. I made samples of it last old School but it was too late. That at least led to the monthly sets having a front image though. I hated those blank black boxes. There is nothing to ID what's inside.

slamjim was calling a possible Wacky Packages (Really Really) Old School set to be a prequel set with pre 1967 products.
