I'm disappointed at Topps for not promoting this set in their daily emails like they've been doing with all the recent GPK sets.  Not one mention of this set mentioned in the emails.  Patrick, thank you SO MUCH for posting this information; otherwise, I'd never have known.  Neil and David should maybe ask Topps what's up with that?

Any way to get any of the 2 NYCC Wacky promo cards?

Also: I hope next year in 2023 Topps plans a mini set SDCC 2023 Edition Wacky Packages with some San Diego artist or personality during the 2023 San Diego Comic-Con.

Who is the wacky pack audience these days?    I like 3 titles in this set but the "boogers" negate everything I like about it.   

Maybe boogers are aimed at little kids?   The classic 1970's wacky packages aimed at little kids never once used the word "boogers".

The price of wackys these past few decades sure as s#!% never considered little kids a target audience.   

I personally felt the final straw with "Call of Doody".    Never bought another retail wacky pack again.

Is it still a money making machine for Topps?
Send me your borderless wackys!

I agree 100%.  Can't stand any Wackies having to do with body secretions.  (Achoo and Sneez-It are about as far as I go.)

At the moment, I don't have any extras, but Topps occassionally sends some, so if that happens, I'll post about it here first.

Padres vs. Mets game 3 - the spin rates on his pitches were slightly higher than usual, so the Mets accused him of applying a foreign substance to the ball. The umpires checked his ears and didn't find anything unusual.

A booger is not a secretion. As for who the target audience is, people who find humor in cleverness. All comedy is subjective and not everything is for everyone.

I'm glad you like three of them.As for who the target audience is, people who find humor in cleverness. All comedy is subjective and not everything is for everyone. A good writer will write in different styles to appeal to more people. Sometimes you push the envelope in different directions to see who you bring in and who finds it enjoyable. If you don't alter your content occasionally or vary it then you continue to get the exact same audience. I find Call of Doody to be hilarious and I'm the father of three. I would imagine when you used to buy albums you didn't like all 10 songs but I can't imagine if you didn't like one song that made you not like the entire album
Also if you're going to hold 2022 writers to 1975 standards then I would be writing cigarette spoofs and gun parodies.Boogers are better. They never killed anyone.
