I just emailed Les at The Wrapper to see if he knew how many postcards were produced.

Hey Neil, Loaffy Taffy looks great! Kudos on getting it placed as a Wrapper exclusive.

I submitted Loaffy for ANS8, but Topps passed at the time. Here's the rough that I sent in:

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.

Just got a note from Les saying that if you haven't ordered the latest Wrapper and postcards that there are still many postcards available, but he would prefer no multiple orders or repeat orders.

Wow, it's like some collectors that aren't in the loop just go crazy when they see a new item they aren't familiar with, thinking it must be super rare or something.  What a waste of money!

 I saw that on eBay a few days ago, and have been watching it for fun, had no idea it would go for that.

I emailed Les Davis about the quantity of Loaffy Taffy that were produced. Here is his response:

"Approximately 2000...less if you count some with corner dings(thrown out). Best- Les"

Does any one have an extra they would sell to me at a reasonable price?

It doesn't sound like it's sold out yet. for $3.50 you can get 2 postcards + the wrapper directly from the source. Just send a paypal payment to:leswrap@comcast.net  and 2 days later you'll have your postcards. He was VERY fast with the shipping for me.

It's been 2 weeks and I still haven't seen mine.  I think I confused Les because I renewed my Wrapper subscription and added the extra money for the postcards on top of that payment.  I gave him a note with my paypal payment and sent him an email which he acknowledged, but after exchanging several emails with him he seemed confused.

Same here. Although I did receive the Wrapper issue - just no postcards. Les said he'd send it again in case it got lost. Looking forward to seeing it.

Did you ever receive your postcard? I have not, even though Les said he'd send out another one in case mine got lost in the mail.

Get this: I had actually forgot about it till yesterday, so I wrote to him and he replied saying yes he sent out a replacement, and is wondering if I'm pulling his leg but will send out one more. He also put me on his blacklist!! I guess I can't really blame him, if he really did send out 2 others... I'm going to check with a neighbor that sometimes gets our mail mis-delivered, just in case. I replied to Les and said don't bother sending another, that I will get one from a forum member instead.

So... if anyone has an extra one to sell me, please let me know. I would at least like one in my collection.

Mine finally came in a little postcard sized envelope but had no protection around the cards so the corners got dinged up.

He sent mine in a plain envelope. Mine were perfect but I was nervous opening the envelope. I think he just views these as freebies so he doesn't care how they're packed.

I agree, still it seemed strange to me since he knows the trading card biz.  I would have rather paid for it and had it well protected.  Fortunately mine isn't too bad.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who has had problems with the Wrapper Postcards. I wasnt going to say anything cause so many people were praising Les, that I thought I was just the exception. But as usual if it involves me, it has to be a notch higher.  Word for word...

 "Hi Les,    I am writing to you about the newest WRAPPER mag and WACKY postcard promo.  I looked on your site for a listing to buy this issue and order the promo. I was unable to find that page to order. Can you please help me i would love to get a 1 year sub. and order form for the promo. Any help would be appreciated."

His reply...


"Hi Jim- You can Paypal $24 for a one year sub and I will also include (2) Wacky postcards at no charge. Paypal to my email address: leswrap@xxxx.net or call with cc numbers: 630-877-xxxx. Thanks- Les"

2 weeks later...

"Hi Les,  I received my 1st issue of my year subscription. I did not get any Postcards, are they going to be in a separate envelope?
 
Thanks for the help,
 
Jim"

Again, his reply...

"Hi James- You didn't read my announcement on p.8. However, since you subscribed in part to get the postcards, I will send 2 out tomorrow to you."

I got them a few days ago, in the same small envelope with no protection, 2 of the 4 corners are Bent!, and the kicker...they are covered in printers ink and there is no gloss. These were rejects CLEARLY! I cant help but feel Les Thinks he did me a favor by sending me this garbage after i went the extra mile and ordered the Mag for a year and not just that issue.  >:D

That's funny because I had the same exact response from him, about not reading page 8.  He kept referring to page 8 and making it sound like I wasn't following directions or something.  When I first sent him the money for the order I couldn't have been more clear about the fact that I added the extra money for the postcards, and he didn't say anything.  Very strange.  At least I know I wasn't alone in my experience!  haha

I just got a mailing/advert today for the Wrapper with a yellow slip of paper that reads "3 Free Wacky Postcards with your $20 subscription." The advert did mention that Neil Camera will have a Wacky/Topps column. I assume that means in each upcoming issue.
