Wacky Plaks Topps - 1959
Notes: The "plaks" are postcard-sized, approximately 2-1/2" x 4-5/8", and feature artwork by Jack Davis. Some sources speculate that some of the plaks were short-printed or overprinted. Different versions were also manufactured under license by Scanlens in Australia and A & BC in England. (Paul Tachian reports that at least one of the Australian cards wasn't in the U.S. set, thanks!) The numbers were rearranged when Topps reissued the set as Kookie Plaks in 1965; the collector reference number for this set is R708-4. Thanks much to Bob Hall for the checklist!
