Wacky Packages have made a comeback over the last couple of years with new releases from Topps.
The next installment – Wacky Packages All New Series 11 trading card stickers – comes out in late September with items for adults and children to collect.
The newest Wacky Packages will make fun of toys, video games, TV shows, cereal and more just the way fans of the series have come to expect. Topps will release hobby and retail versions of the product with plenty of incentive to pick up the Collector’s Edition (hobby release) for extra hits and content.
The base will consist of 128 stickers with 55 base of A and B variations, nine Coming Distractions (parodies of upcoming movies) and nine Rude Food (joke menus from national restaurant chains) inserts – both new subsets.
The base set and subsets will have parallels: Blue (standard packs only), Silver (standard packs only), Gold and Cloth. Inserts will feature Magnet Cards and Coloring Cards.
The Collector’s Edition, only found as a hobby release, of Wacky Packages will offer collectors more than they usually get. Collectors will get one hit in every box from one of the following: Sketch cards, Shaped Sketch ards, Printing Plates, Artist Autographs, Classic Comedian Autographs, Buy Backs and Patch Relics.
In addition, collectors will get a Pencil Drawing, two die-cut base cards, one bonus sticker and a Ludlow Black Commemorative in every box.
Topps included some rare hits in Wacky Packages. Lost Wacky (buy backs) and Ludlow Red Commemoratives cards will be case hits, and Gold parallels will fall at a rate of three in every case.
Collector’s Edition will also include one Wacky Oversized Billboard in every box.
