Holy Mackarel, Probstein (aka MickandDad Collectibles) showed up at the Philly show (late on Sunday when things were winding down) with a shocking number of sealed LW1 packs, and with the extra rare first version stickers. I'm glad I didn't leave early.

LW1 (V1) in packs have long been one of the holy grails of the hobby. Not just another fan set or underground project, it was years in the making by a syndicate of the most hard core Wacky Pack historians - Topps understood the importance of this set and did give the nod to do it (exactly 20 years ago), with several conditions, including very limited quantity.

For somebody to show up with eight sealed sets was even more shocking than if somebody showed up with that many Jolly Mean #21's. They only survived to now because they had misplaced them for quite a few years and they only recently turned back up. You might remember how much stuff they were buying in 2004, they possess something like 90% of all Topps Vault items from that period to the tune of millions of dollars. So it's not hard to imagine how something could get buried. Well, I can't speak for everything they purchased but they were certainly geniuses to pick up 10 sets of these. Nobody realized how big the demand would ultimately be.

We had to dig very deep, but you know those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities only come once. Sealed LW1 packs will now be available again for a short while. We're listing them at a nearly break even price - yes that's not cheap, but this set is almost certainly going to be worth over $2K once these are gone, there can't be many left. We will probably break one set up for singles.

UPDATE (5/22/24): In two days, five sets sold, and one was broken up for singles. I'm going to hold on to the last two sealed sets for now.

There are some homemade wacky pack copies on this estate sale web page.

A lot of people have copied wacky packs, they generally go for $100 to $200 each, unless they're true 5'x7' and particularly well done.

May 9th, 2024

The 80th Philadelphia Non-Sports Card Show is coming soon - May 18th and 19th. Arguably the only non-sports card show in the country.

NOW SOLD OUT
It took until the first week in May for this series to sell out, so about 5 1/2 months. That should tell Topps something about demand going forward.

Well this is interesting. All these years we've all been so sure the original art to the Lost Wacky "Garbage Can Dan" had been destroyed. Even Jay Lynch told me he personally witnessed it being destroyed.

Well sure enough no, it hadn't been burned up by the CEO after all and is now for sale on Herigate (it sold for a respectable $106,250.00).

I do hope the seller shares some of that with John Pound. Topps never did right by the artists but here's a chance to do the right thing.

WARNINGS
WARNING EVERYBODY: There are bad eggs in every hobby that will take advantage of the ignorance of newbies and our general enthusiasm for the things we love. It is our opinion that nobody treats people worse than Ernie de la Fuentes, who we assess has been one of the perennial bad elements in the hobby with a bad penchant for bullying. His ebay ID is bandaches-yahoo. A definite avoid.
WARNING DEALERS: Robert Karaszi is a habitual thief, if you don't give him the deals he wants, he will steal from you for revenge. Karaszi stole two valuable items from us in a mail-fraud scam, and we were not his first victim. His ebay ID is "outpostindigo" you can block him from bidding here.
