2014 Topps Wacky Packages Chrome Trading CardsBrand: Wacky Packages
Past and present collide with 2014 Topps Wacky Packages Chrome. The release takes the original three sets released in 1967 and 1973 and gives them a modern chromium spin. Besides the upgraded base cards, highlights include multiple levels of Refractors, autographs and sketch cards.
The 2014 Topps Wacky Packages Chrome base set has 110 cards. The first 44 reprint the original 1967 set that kicked it all off. These are followed by 33 and 30 cards from the pair of Wacky Packages products released in 1973. The final three cards are checklists.
The entire set has several Refractor parallels. These give a rainbow finish to the cards. Every other pack has a basic Refractor. Blue Refractors are limited to 50 copies each while Gold Refractors are limited to 25. Superfractors represent the toughest chase. Each is one-of-a-kind. All base cards also have four Printing Plates.
Wacky Packages co-creator, Len Brown has autographs in the set. All of his signatures are done on base cards. There are approximately 1,100 signed cards across the product's print run.
Chrome Framed Sketch Cards deliver original artwork from Wacky Packages artists. The drawing is a little smaller than traditional sketch cards to accommodate the frame. 2014 Topps Wacky Packages Chrome has about 2,000 sketch cards total.
The product also has several basic insert sets. With 36 cards, Wacky Ads is the largest. Reprinting a set from 1969, these cards are inserted 1:3 packs. Cutting Room Floor (20 cards, 1:4 packs) takes abandoned gags and sees them through to completion for the first time. Lost Wackys (ten cards, 1:6 packs) follows a similar concept for more cards that were cut. Finally, there are five Where Are They Now cards (1:8 packs) that take an old gag and gives it a modern makeover.
Randomly inserted are redemptions for uncut sheets. Original 1967 and 1973 Wacky Packages cards can also be found.
