Wacky Packages Boxes Cards Set Now Complete
« on: September 04, 2021, 01:57:38 PM »
Looking to see what type of interest there is in this non-official release.  I collected these cards for a few years. They released 18 9 card sets and each set has a 9 card puzzle. For the 1st thru 5th release and the 17th and 18th release the puzzles are special boxes like chrome, patches, diecuts etc. Starting with the 6th series they had the puzzle be the corresponding box to that release. Beside the 9 card release and puzzles; I have obtained unstuck stickers for the wrappers of all the sets. I had been saving the wrappers themselves ; but the unstuck wrappers stickers on cards are very cool. I was also able to obtain a few silver a gold versions of the pack stickers , uncut sheets, unstuck stickers to seal the packs, a few uncut strips and two different color binders. The series covers about every box that is out there and is alot of fun to peruse. Did a I pay money for images that are out there already? Yes; But as a Wacky card collector ; this was a very cool set to collect.
Does anyone else like this release?

Regards,  Andrew

Yes, I'm going to start collecting this series. In fact, I just sent the payment for Series 1 last week. Due to the flooding, however, I'll have to wait a while for it.

In fact, Greg told me there's going to be an 18th series, because there's still a few boxes missing, mostly gravity feed boxes.

I have all 17 series also, just the 9 cards and puzzle for each. I also have the bonus cards and kept the wrappers too. I agree that it is a cool bunch of sets!

Yeah, I'm slowly working through my collection and providing about 16 pics to Greg of all those missing Gravity feeds and a number of boxes. That may be enough to create two more Series of these things?

Thanks for the update. Cool to know there will be a few more sets made. I will look for those.

I have no idea if any more sets will be made. Just indicating that there are still a lot of boxes that are not yet covered by the current sets.

Mike mentioned in the first reply that an 18th release is planned.

And you mentioned in your original post that you have 18 releases, so the whole thread seems to have some cloudy information in itů

From the fourth pic shown, the boxes seem mixed across sets, as opposed to in chronological order.  Is this correct?

I think I can explain this.

"18 releases" means the 17 series and the Bonus Series. The 18th Series is coming out after the Bonus Series.

That is correct. Each box series contains boxes across different series/years/etc. For example: http://www.wackypacks.com/boxes/stickers/1st/

Never saw this set.  Does anyone know if all the photos were taken by the creator, or did they just rip them from the Wacky Packages gallery?

Here's Greg's website: www.wackypacks.com/wackypacks.php

Can't remember if the ones on Greg's site were from the Gallery or new ones from his collection.  I should be able to recognize the Gallery ones as I did much of the photography for the Gallery, but it was a long time ago.  Unfortunately the lighting at Jeff's place wasn't great, and we were in a mad rush to finish them as we were missing out on the festivities upstairs.  So, they weren't the quality as I'd have liked to do.  But it would be interesting to know if my shots made it into the sticker set anyway.  I'd always wanted to get one of my roughs to see the light of day in a finished Wacky, but only got as far as a few elements of "Tantrum" making it through to the final.  So, if the box set were pulled from the Gallery, I suppose that's something.
