Tenth Anniversary of the Official Wacky Packages Day!!!
« on: March 31, 2023, 07:40:15 AM »
  Ten years ago tomorrow, April First was set aside as the Official Wacky Packages Day! The comic celebrating this momentous event can still be found on Ebay. Much has happened in the intervening decade, but Wackys are still going! With the most recent ANS series a Sell Out, and new Flashbacks and Old School slated for later this year, Wackys will keep the presses rolling! There are even a couple of Postcard sets in the mix! Recent displays of fan art from our younger days show the great nostalgic value these cards hold for all of us! Here's to another ten years of Wackiness! Happy Wackys Day!

My thoughts exactly. And Postcards? Sounds like someone has let the feline out of the opaque sack...

maybe that's something directly related to Neil's post earlier this month in the 50th anniversary thread?


Not to worry! Topps is well aware of the 50th anniversary of the '73 set, so expect some cool stuff this year.

Neil, yes, June 9th that’s always the one I think of, it’s more officially “unofficial” I think!

Is this because it's 69?

I picked June 9 because I lost my  dog Blue that day and he was always by my side when I was painting. So, it's really just a personal tribute to him.

Oh, that's a very sweet tribute. Is it safe to bet that you've painted Blue in some Wackys?

I sure hope so!  Those two (especially the first set) are among my favorites, other than the colored borders.
