Iíve only looked at a couple series so far, but I noticed you found a Goodmanís Noodles box with a mascot-like character, which I donít think has ever turned up before.  Is that an unaltered photo?  Iím super surprised by that.

That was a black and white image from a newspaper. I only altered it by colorizing.

I updated the website using the Spam and Sun-Maid images that Swiski provided for me, as well as taking care of a few typos. I'm going to begin searching images for the next series which is the 1981 Irish set. Hopefully it won't be too much trouble locating images of the Irish products!

F**KING LOVE IT!!!!

I have always said Topps needs to release a version of each series with a Lenticular that switches from the original product and the Wacky

We actually discussed a similar idea for one of the ANS series (i think it was ANS7 but not 100% sure)). Anyway, the idea got nixed because there were too many legal hurdles to get it off the ground.

Great Job!  Always wondered about the magazine Wackys and if they were modeled after specific issues of the magazine.  Some of them look like they definitely were:

It's fantastic seeing everything side by side in the same perspective as the Wacky art.

Although a number of the magazines really aren't good matches, as they're for issues that came out months after the Wacky was released

I am seriously considering continuing beyond the Original 1-16 Series. I guess for me the next Series with unrepeated titles would be the 1981 Irish set?

I would suggest doing the 1967 die-cuts next (the ones that were not duplicated in the first series), then the Irish set. After that you could continue in chronological release order, or... do the Old School series (for us old-timers) before moving on to the ANS series. Just a thought. LOVE what you have done with this!

Thanks, DaffyBP!

The '67 Die Cuts were the first ones I did. It's funny that you suggested doing the Old School before doing the ANS because I had the same feeling. I'm going to leave the ANS for last (if I ever get that far!)

When you click on each link they are NOT secure
The first few times I used the link to access the site, there were no issues.  I just clicked it again, and got all kinds of hacker warnings.  I never know whether these warnings are legit on an apple device, but I closed the browser to err on the side of caution.

The same thing happened to me, only it asked me if I was a robot and when I said that I wasn't, then the warnings started. I had to turn my computer off twice just to get rid of them.

I don't understand why some people are getting warnings for accessing my website, or what I can do to prevent it from happening. I use Chrome to view the site and no problem. I'm not tech savvy when it comes to computers or websites; I'm just a dude who made a simple webpage about Wackies!

Any advice would be appreciated.

you will need more data from the folks with issues.  Is it IPHONE issue, is it a particular browser, release level of the browser etc.  I have no issues, I mainly use my laptop and chrome browser.

can you modify your first post in this thread to include the link to your site?  Easier to find as opposed to having to scroll down and find your other post.

Iím using Safari on an iPad thatís nearly 10 years old, so issue is probably on my end.  I am starting to see some functionality limitations issues arising on certain websites.  Iíve been planning to replace my iPad but havenít pulled the trigger yet.

do you have any other ways to access that are not giving you the secure issue?

I have an iPhone thatís relatively new, and my work laptop, but I try not to use the latter too much for frivolous activity.

A new iPad is a must, just a matter of carving out some time and getting it taken care of.

Able to access now without issue as I did initially, so all is not yet lost lol.
