Fall Philly Show. 10/14 and 10/15.
« on: October 02, 2023, 07:56:33 PM »
Welcome everyone to the month of Oct, in less then 2 weeks at the Greater Oaks Convention center. Wacky collectors will have the opportunity to assemble with their friends once again in search of that elusive Wacky item you"ve been searching for for a long time. As always, I like to get a heads up count of who might be able to make this one. As much as I hate being the possible bad news bearer, I may not be able to make this one, unless if you pardon the pun, "A Wacky miracle happens". So in closing, a good night to you all and have fun if you're able to attend. Pray for me that I can.

I won't be there, but count me among your intercessors. A Philly Show without you just wouldn't be the same.

My intention is to be there on Saturday. I can drag my OS extras along (and prob will) if anyone is interested. However, for what I believe is the first time in my history of attending this show, I will actually be focused on finding some non-Wacky cards to complete a couple of sets. I'll still have my eye out for Wackys, too, so please don't call me a traitor, LOL. See everyone there.

Iím not sure how big the shows are nowadays, but at the few I attended in the late 90ís, I was amazed at how much vintage material was there other than Wackys.  In one visit I finished a Bazooka Joe card set from childhood that was about 4-5 cards away from finished.  That blew my mind.

On the subject of Bazooka Joe, if there are any enthusiasts out there, the set in question has no copyright date but the same puzzle backs as another set with different B.J. Comic fronts and a 1975 copyright.  Every information source Iíve seen on these sets calls them a 1972 set but I distinctly remember collecting them after Wackys were over, most likely 1977.  I also remember running to a particular candy store to buy packs countless times, and it was several blocks from home including crossing a major boulevard.  No way I was doing that at 5 years of age (1972).

I also have some 1975s but not nearly as many.  Stands to reason because I was definitely still active in Wacky pursuit that year.  So the 1972 portrayal just doesnít add up.  And it wasnít old stock, the gum was definitely fresh.

Anyone with similar recollection?

Hey Tom, as always I will be happy to dig through your boxes.  Let me know if you have any specific Wacky needs, I will help out if possible.

Was cool to see Phil Carpenter, Eric Roberts and Mike Crist there today.  Haven't seen any of them in well over a decade!  All are doing well.

I have no knowledge of the dinner and promos.  I was there behind a dealer table(with Dan McKee) until mid day Saturday then I headed home to attend stuff with my kids.   Show seemed busy early on but definitely quieted down by mid afternoon Saturday.  It was raining hard most of the day so not sure if that caused more people to come Sunday.

Were you able to make it, Mark?  I haven't been to a "real" non-sports card show since whenever the big Philly show around '06 or so.  Wish the Chicago show was still happening as that's one I could far more easily attend.

As I mentioned earlier, I would like one of those Toser Wacky Pack promo cards from the show. I don't care if it's the Saturday or Sunday version. Any one of them will do. I will pay for it. Not expecting it for free. Just not eBay prices. Thx!

No couldn't make it to this one, my workplace needed me more I guess. Do plan on making the Spring one which I found out in "24" is the 18th/19th of May.

The good news is that I should be receiving my "cards as payment" soon, and there should be enough to meet the needs of anyone who couldn't get to the show and wants to add the promo to their collection! I'll post as soon as they arrive.

I know the spring show had two versions of the promo but I haven't seen evidence that this show did. Can someone confirm or deny?

Thanks, F&S!  I do seem to recall seeing this before.  I think I was so turned off by the booger-centric nature of it that I completely pushed it out of my brain.
