1959 Wacky Plaks

Congrats to Big Papi. But, more importantly my uncle is home. I'll make this long story short. The last 6 days have been a nightmare. The nightmare is over he is home, and within 1 hour if being home was 1000% better from when I picked him up. He still needs a few days or so to completely recover...not from Covid (he was never ill with that) he needs to recover from the "other" idiotic things they were doing and changed on non Covid issues that they were "ordered" NOT to do and did anyways, thus creating problems that would not exist had he been sent home to begin with or at least after the last dose of Rendesvir which was Sunday 1:30 am. One day I will tell the whole story and it is a doozie. Just not tonight.


Round 2 of the 1959 Topps Wacky Plaks.

Most certainly, I should have scanned the Scanlen reprints from 1982. That way you could have seen 84 of the 88 post cards. This is all I have of the Wacky Plaks for now.

Here is the back of one of the Scanlen's.  These were made/reprinted in Australia back in 82'. I have that complete set which is only 84 cards compared to the 88 of the original set. One day I'll run the Scanlen's. For next week.....I've got some more Topps Wackys, but from 1957. See you then to see what those are.


  1. Glad he's feeling better.

    I like the 'born this way' one.

  2. Glad to hear your uncle is home and feeling better.

  3. Glad he's doing better.

    Head removal comes up a lot in these plaks.

  4. It almost sounds like they did their best to try and make sure that he didn't come home. Good on him for enduring though!

    1. Those sob's gave him a sleeping pill before bringing him down for discharge (at 2:30pm) to knock him out so he wouldn't talk, be he talked for 2 1/2 hours straight after we got home before the pill hit him. Today was a struggle, but got him to eat a little bit and drink a little. He tore up some ice cream. Hoping tomorrow is clear and his throat from another pill they gave (all week that they are NOT supposed to give him) should be clearing and less painful so he he can eat and drink, if he doesn't shake this in a day or two, Its not good. And not a damn bit of it is Covid related, talk about abuse. I'm ranting.

  5. Glad he's back where he should be. ... We had a go-round with the hospital when my mom had to go in a month before she died. It was an eye-opener about how dysfunctional those places can be, and that was a year before covid.

  6. I just read that the artist who drew these, Jack Davis, is from Georgia.
