Kookie Plaks
Topps - 1965

Notes:  The "plaks" are postcard-sized, approximately 2-1/2" x 4-11-16", and
feature artwork by Jack Davis. This images and basic text are the same as
what Topps used in the 1959 "Wacky Plaks" set, but the numbering has been
changed. Fewer copies were printed, so this set can be even more valuable than
the original Wacky Plaks. Thanks much to Bob Hall for the basic checklist!

Johnchi reports a set of blank-back (tan back) stickers that match the artwork 
for the first 44 plaks, but we haven't been able to figure out where these came 
from. Can anybody help?
