   I can't see this selling, I'd say a PSA 9 is a possible grade to ask that much.  I am watching this one. What would the more reasonable value be for this one be? Anyone?  Matt.https://www.ebay.com/itm/1973-Topps-Wacky-Packages-Choke-Wagon-4th-Series-PSA-7-NEAR-MINT-TOUGH-Card/303806302802?hash=item46bc444a52:g:ZVkAAOSwcMlf028J

Recent sales have two PSA 7s going for $300-400 and a PSA 8 going for $400. If he is asking $475 he will likely accept $250-300.

Beautiful centering but overpriced for a PSA 7.  Maybe $175??

Pretty sure you could make this for less than $50 with a plastic garbage can and reissues or Flashbacks.

But notice the pattern.  Lined up around the top and bottom, but placed everywhere else using a mathematical formula of:

Ft1…tn,tn+1…tn+m(x1…xn,∞…∞)=Ft1…tn(x1…xn), Fti1…tin(xi1…xin)=Ft1…tn(x1…xn)

Besides that, suppose these were all ludlows, wouldn't the two Run Tonys alone make it worth much more than $185?  ;D

I suppose this is a good idea for all those extra ANS base sets that have been taking up space in your collecting closet so far.  I think if I had been buying 10 sets every week, I'd be making my own trash cans to give away as Christmas presents along with special Christmas wrapping paper made out of them.

The odds and ends under the glass on top stimulate a lot of conversation I bet, at least with those seeing it for the first time.

$185 seems pretty darn high for this item . . .

  I am just amazed that someone would actually try to lure anyone into thinking that the Crust is possible to get in this lot. This upsets me because they are obviously praying on the weak in hopes of selling what we all know to be anything but the Crust, they will get junk.https://www.ebay.com/itm/2020-WACKY-PACKAGES-MINIS-3D-MINI-FIGURE-MYSTERY-SET-OF-15-COMMONS-NO-DUPES/124502146372?hash=item1cfce7fd44:g:FmkAAOSwKwZfyEVU

The description says COMMON LOT..apparently pictures can lie as long as they can fall back on the description.

That was one expensive haircut. I would have rather lost them from childhood than to have known that I did that to them. >( >( >(

Agreed, it hurts!!  I wonder if they were already punched before they were mutilated, aka "trimmed."

As a small kid, I was given a wallet for Christmas with the plastic photo insert.  I vividly remember trimming a Joe Namath football card to get it to fit in the holder.  It was probably from 1969.  It's certainly not a 1K+ mistake, but it's stupid stuff you do when you're a kid.

a few punched Ratz and Cracked were floating around years back, and I think they sold on Ebay in the $200-$300 range

That's about what I paid for mine.  If I ever manage to get an intact Ratz my punched set of 44 will be up for grabs.

I bought a punched Ratz in terrible shape for $37 on eBay in its early infancy (1998ish)  and a punched Cracked for around $300 a few years ago.

Here's one for the "Are these buyers NUTS???" category.

Someone sold a Plastered Peanuts mini on eBay with an upside down sticker. How easy is that to just remove the sticker with a hairdryer, then reapply it upside down. It's not like the seller put a high buy-it-now asking price on it, but the bids went well over $100 for this!

I've seen a few auctions on eBay where the entire mini was upside down.  Now that has to be worth something extra doesn't it?

I forgot what title it was, I think Putrid, the sticker easily could come off and could be put back on.
