Spring Philly Non-Sport Show.
« on: April 08, 2023, 05:39:01 PM »
6 weeks from today on the 20th/21st of May, Wacky collectors will gather together at the Greater Oaks Expo Center for another great weekend. After Day 1 of the show, a dinner will be held at one of the host hotels. I'll start the body count, Plan on being there on Sat, but won't be staying over. Looking forward to a good turnout.

I'll be there, Shoe, as a spectator this time around --- not setting up --- but going to the dinner.

A wide variety of non-sports items, primarily from the 1960s and 1970s.  Of course whatever Wacky surplus items I had as well, although most collectors at that show are not looking for Wackies.

I would have loved to see the display!  I don't have much from the 60s, but I have a lot from the 70s - 90s.

Someone took a picture of it among many photos from the show but I don't recall where I saw it, unfortunately.  But I am planning to set up again at the October 2023 show.

Richard, I will bring my binder of available sketches.  And if you have any that you would even remotely consider trading (Wheaton, etc.), please bring!  By that time we should both also have some sketch cards from the latest two series from Topps.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

I'd love to get those, but Oklahoma's too far from Philly, so I guess I'll have to resort to "secondary" sources to obtain them...unless someone who's going can do me a big favor....

From the Email:

"Promos
We'll have some really cool promo cards to give away including a special Topps' Wacky Packages card. And be sure to come back to the show on Sunday for the orange variant version!"

So it looks like the reverse of the Sat card is yellow and Sun is orange. Sounds like the same Wacky image both days.

I wish someone related to the show would sell these to the public who cant make it to the show. I know these are created and given out as an incentive to attend. For some of us its impossible. Just seems so in-just to have to buy these at ridiculous prices.

It's not in the cards (pun intended) for me to fly to Philadelphia to a card show to get these promos, so I will be looking on eBay, unless there are a lot of extras brought back by members here. Please put me on the list for any extra Wacky Packages promo cards!

Argh...that's another promo I want! Is there a way the bunch of us who can't make the show can buy a show admission ticket so we can get the promos? I know it can be done and people have done it before. Who do we ask?

Had a great time at the Philly show. Extra Admission with second promo pack were 1 per person.  Got a very cool George Wright Monster Mart 4 Card Promo Puzzle
Set for Dinty Morgue Stew. He had the promos hidden at two different table so it was a scavenger hunt to complete. They did not come in the promo packs. Purchased 7 packs of the SideKick Labs Martian Initials packs and was able to score 22 out of 26 letters. The Martian initials cards use Day Glo ink and really pop.
Panky Products and Smokin Joe Weak Tins Promos as well Tosers Wacky Pack came in the prmo0 pack. Sorry for no pics.

Thanks for the update.

I'm heading up this morning.

I didn't realize the Martian Initials Cards were being sold at the show. I might take some extra cash.
