NY Comic Con anyone?!
« on: September 09, 2022, 05:39:44 AM »
This many days until the 2022 NY Comic Con! As many of you already know, when it comes to shows, I'm pretty much a recluse, so doing two shows in one week is kind of unheard of.  If any of you can make it to either NY (Oct. 8th) or the Philly show (weekend of the 15th), definitely drop by the Topps table and say HI! Would be fun to talk shop, art or even just to argue about which Rays is the original pizza place!

Hey Neil!

Do you know if there will be any exclusive Wacky Packages there?

I've got a funny feeling there might be!

Wish I could but I think they're for show attendees only.

How about "wish I could be an attendee"?

Thanks for the heads up!  Just bought a set.  Never heard of David Brody before, and a five card set is quite unusual, but glad it was only $10.

David Brody was a program director for Z100 in NYC who approached Topps about doing his own Wacky Packages set. He wrote the titles and I painted them along with the coupon backs. I think David will be at the show on Saturday doing a podcast so if you're in the area, listen in. You might get an earful of wacky lore!

This is definitely a strange one-off! No chase cards, no frills. Just a simple base set of 5?

Thanks for that backstory, Neil!  Sadly, there's no way I'll be able to attend, but if there is a podcast that he does that can be posted here, please do that.  I always enjoy some good Wacky lore :)
