Wrapper Magazine Special Wacky Postcard Promo available now!
« on: December 27, 2011, 04:59:33 PM »
Hey postcard fans! A new Wacky Postcard promo and article is available in the current issue of the Wrapper magazine (#264 - January 1 through February 15)! It's a Laffy Taffy parody written by Fred Wheaton, painted by Neil Camera. I believe if you send a SASE with your request, the editor, Les Davis will mail one out to you! See thewrappermagazine.com for more details.

UPDATE: Les Davis has asked me to post the following message for people interested in purchasing the Wrapper postcard promo:

Due to the incredible response for the new Wacky Postcards from The Wrapper magazine and my time filling orders(plus Paypal fees), I must increase the cost of the (2) Wacky postcards from $1.50 to $2 via Paypal...or $3.50(from $3) for the (2) Wacky postcards plus the current Wrapper issue with the Wacky article.  Also, no multiple orders or re-orders! Thanks for understanding a guy under siege(ha) and for your patience. --Les Davis, Editor, The Wrapper, thewrappermagazine.com"

Yes it is still around, Les has been cranking this mag. since 1978, I have been a subscriber since #91, But have had to stop for a little while due to other things that involve monetary attention. But may have to get this particular issue since it contains something Wacky related.

My issue came yesterday, but I had worked pretty late, and was too tired to read it (had I realized it included the Wacky article, I'd have managed :) ).  Read this post just now and ran for envelope thinking there would be a postcard in it, but I see it's a mail-away.  It's a good article, and I'm looking forward to another Wacky item in the mail!  I'll have to take care of this after work tonight.  Thanks Neil, Fred and Les!!

I just sent $3.00 to Les and I can't wait to see the article and postcard. I have never heard of The Wrapper...so thanks to Neil for posting about this release. I am very excited about this. I have gotten to where I almost like the postcards more than the stickers. I think the larger size agrees with my aging eyes better.

Someone get ready to update the master list.

Just sent Les some paypal. The wrapper is how I repurchased series 1 - 10 before the internet took over.

I subscribed for awhile and look forward to checking out a new issue.

So are there two postcards or just one?  Neil referenced just one but it looks like Les is saying two?

I could be wrong, but I think you'll get two copies of the same postcard.

I got the impression from Les' email that it was two copies of the same postcard. I went ahead and bought the WRAPPER issue as well... its probably been 10 or 11 years since I subscribed and am curious as to what it looks like these days. Like someone else indicated, it was a good source for Wacky's before the internet really became so accessible. The downside is that the advertisers remained fairly stagnant and if you subscribed much more than a year, you were basically seeing the same items for sale over and over again. Plus, once you got used to email, the snail mail pace of much of the correspondence associated with the sellers/traders advertising in the WRAPPER was demotivating. I am sure that has changed.

Les mentioned in an email reply to me that he was being inundated witrh orders for the promo and may have to stop taking orders soon; so time may be of the essence if you want to get in on this one.

I did. It's a nice one page article on the PCs. Not much new ground for forum members, but it does mention that PC series 8 will have "many more than just six cards in the set". The opposing page has some black and white images of some of the 2011 Halloween PCs.

Here's a link to the author's website:
http://www.monsterwax.com/

And one for the Wacky PC checklist (courtesy of our own RawGoo, I believe):

And finally, one for the article itself:

err, the info about that first set is wrong - there wasn't a bonus card, and certainly not one that changed between the limited and unlimited releases.
and the info on the first halloween set is a bit off too.

I got mine really fast too!  And, yes, thanks for posting the info.  I'm glad I got in on this offer.

Les mentioned in an email that he got lots of requests from Wisconsin (where I live).  Had no idea there were many Wacky collectors in the Badger state, but I guess that just goes to show we have good taste in this state.
