Some people do seem to think a PSA holder makes anything more valuable. In fact, for the majority of cards that grade below PSA 7, the exact opposite is true.

I am much more forgiving with condition when it comes to Die-cuts and Ads, and if there was a good sale for grading at $5-$7 per card, I might get my raw Die-cuts graded.  But I can't see any of them getting lower than a 4 - I wouldn't even consider bothering with something that is a 1.5, unless it was Ratz, or a Jolly Mean #21, and even then it would be because I think the PSA holders do protect the perfs.

Is it me, or is shipping a little high on this one?

Am assuming you are being facetious about the shipping, but methinks he misplaced a decimal point in the price........

Nothing has changed. I was just making a joke because it was put on stock of that era. 'Tis all.

I was into thinking that it was Stove Glop, but turns out that the box is pointed in the other direction. Your conclusion may be correct.

I'm thinking this is a tad high for this, though it does look decent and complete [sans the second 8th series puzzle, not a big deal]. Does anyone know who this is?

Not sure, but I imagine it is John Fricke's brother.  I am pretty sure he mentioned at one of the gatherings that he had a brother that was semi into Wacky's, he just wasn't on the forum.
Still looking for Series 17

I donít think so, Johnís last name is spelled Frick (no e) and his brother Timís eBay ID was something like ďcomic cryptĒ (eBays seller search has been ruined so I canít find it). Plus I donít think he lives in MI.

"It's got crispy clean corners".

This is why I despise the option to repost your own listing from the description of another. I loathe it. I mean, this isn't the first case. This is discouraging people to do their own research and actually find out what they have. Now, this person thinks they have a $10 diecut, when it is a worthless borderless reissue.

Not a Wacky Package, but $2.7 million for a PSA 9 1978 Baseball Card?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/323465840957

I love the description:
craig reynolds baseball card 1978 graded psa mint 9. Condition is Very Good. Shipped with USPS Retail Ground.

Do they even read what they're writing?

But you earn $100 in ebay bucks.  So really you're only paying a mere $2,699,900.  Oh, plus $10 in "Economy" shipping.

Dr.Simon,

The scratch on the upper-left area must have stopped it from being a 10?

Thanks for confirming what I  thought - wasn't worth sending in even when grading prices were reasonable.
