General Wacky Packages Discussion / Re: What Else Do We Collect?
« Last post by MoldRush on July 25, 2021, 07:15:27 PM »
Like RawGoo, I collect too much!

Besides Wackys and almost all Wacky knockoffs I collect sports cards.  I just finished my 1972 Football, and I've got about 50 cards left to finish the 69, 70, and 71 sets.  I was working on 1972 Baseball, but it's just too hard to get the 5th and 6th series cards at a decent price.  I have the 1973-77 sets in both of these along with Basketball too.  I think once I finish these last three sets, I'll quit.

Weirder things are
Baseball and Football Slurpee Cups from 1972 and 1973

I also really like certain sports sets and oddball sets that were separate from the basic Topps sets, but during the timeframe when Topps was still the main draw in sport cards.  Examples:

-Hostess Baseball 1975-1979 - very nostalgic about these but chances are slim to none I’ll ever complete a single year’s set, let alone all five.
-Kellogg’s Baseball 3-D / hologram cards - love these too but hard to keep the surface coating from cracking
-Fleer World Series cards (cartoon summaries of each year’s Fall Classic, drawn by Laughlin)
-Sugar Daddy Pro Faces (all 4 sports) - small narrow cards inserted in Sugar Daddy pops.  Only have a few of these from childhood Halloween trick or treating.
-Fleer Team Action / Teams in Action football 1976-1988 -  great action scenes with no licensing issues.  Helmet logos didn’t have to be airbrushed out like on Topps single player cards.  First discovered these as Halloween booty also.  Also had little team logo and helmet sticker subsets for each year.
-7-11 Slurpee baseball discs (hologram)
-Cracker Jack mini baseball
-1982-83 Post cereal mini hockey cards - these were issued in Canada only I believe, each box prize was a cello-wrapped team set, and they were intended to be used as part of a card game of some type, once you got all the teams.  But the fronts still had basic player/action photos.  Only recently learned about them on eBay.
If so I say go full on ANS. No MLB or movies or celebrity issues. Good art and gags, fat borders and current good products.

I wish Topps would listen to you, Dave, on these suggestions.  The only ones I'd add are no colored borders, use original series titles as the inserts (especially good ones like magnets and foils), and keep it possible to actually complete a set without breaking the bank.

Cool stuff on ebay, not my auction. Figured some of you might like them!
I just thought of a good candidate for a Wacky - Kenner Rex the Tyrannosaurus.

Still need one? I was going through my extras and I DO have it

Just PM me if interested.
Thanks for looking. I'd buy a full set too if the price was right.

I have seen Minute Mud and EBayer on fleabay being sold fir big bucks. So were they just not available in stores? What a scam! But these mini products ARE cool! Do they remind anyone besides me of Barbie sized food???

Dave is right,  I'm still sorting through all this stuff on this desk a little by little, I'll get there.

I see some cool stuff on that desk.

Bandaches has some bandaches!  :o
've created a new to way to buy and sell Wacky Packs on FB. It goes like this... you post an item and let people make their offers and you either accept or decline. It is very effective and proven in Garbage Pail Kids so, I know it will work with Wacky's. The rules are pinned and strictly enforced ! It allows sellers to avoid fees and save buyers on sales tax... win win for everybody ! I'll be posting some 16th series and all original series sets, singles and variations soon.
How is this different than the wacky packages buy for sale trade Facebook forum?
