that?

Sorry, didn't get your email address, but I do have Wacky Packages.
They are in excellent shape, but I took off the borders to make a nice
giant sticker ball.  Don't know whatever happened to that sticker ball.

Do you want to do a trade?  I'm looking for orange carded SW figs to
complete my collection.

you're looking for I will let you know.
