I never even noticed that. I wonder if that has to do with coloring them after the fact?

maybe it would be clearer to state 72 of each bio card in the bio card line.

The colored in "postcards" text and the copyright with the artist's name are all pre-printed on these cards.
So I'm not sure what you mean by your question?

What I mean is that an artist can't color a black and white sketch or anyone for that matter and pass it off as an original color sketch.

ahh, I see what you mean, and agree. I don't think this has happened yet, has it?, but it's a fantastic preventative measure considering the price differential between a b&w and a color sketch.

Was there ever a Taco Bill sketch card?

Was there ever a Taco Bill sketch card?

Now that you mention it, I don't think there was, and Brent Engstrom did all Speed Lick sketches in Series 5.  Perhaps Brent or Neil could confirm this so I can correct the list.

Actually I wasn't looking at your notes above until you mentioned it. I was looking over my sketches that I have acquired since release and noticed I didn't have any Taco Bill. I have 2 Engstrom Speed Licks but no Taco Bill. Just curious because I've never seen one.

I've updated the master list in the second post of this thread to include Series 7, along with some minor editing.

Superb work. Excellent to see it all in one place so nicely organized. Kudos!  :great:


I'm crossing my fingers for either another Halloween series or a Holiday/Christmas series. Of course both would be even better.

I'm sure there will be a lot more. When something sells out in 20 min. that generally means a success. I love the postcards. I love big Wacky's!

Yeah, the Halloween ones are some of my faves.  Being a big candy fan, anytime I get to see new Wacky candy parodies is fun.

Glad you're finding the list useful.  I'll be very happy if they manage another set or two by the end of the year!

For the ones looking for the postcard master list thread, here ya go.

Thanks!  I saw the Peepers postcard but I didn't see the 2009 Fantastink Philly promo.  I might have missed it but I also didn't see the 2010 postcard binder "stamp sheet" either.

It might also make sense to add the years they released next to the series.  Here they are if Pat wants to add them in........

2007 series 1
2008 series 2
2009 series 3
2009 series 4
2009 Halloween sketches (these are the ones Neil did)
2010 series 5
2010 series 6
2010 Halloween series
2011 series 7

I don't know anything about Fantastink but I think you can still get the stamps with a binder purchase. I think I have 3 of the stamps so if you can't find one we might be able to work a trade.

All "year" designations added as of today (I'll add specific dates they went on sale if anyone has them).  The stamp sheet was already listed, with the binder, just below Peepers.  

As for Fantastink, I don't think it belongs in the Postcard Master List, as it doesn't seem to be at all related to the Wacky Postcard series - it's a promo card produced by the Philly Show promoters showcasing Neil as an artist.

It probably doesn't but it would be nice to have it on one of the master lists for the completists.  I thought you might put it on this one because you had "Peepers" which was a Philly promo as well, no?

"ReSee's Peepers" was distributed at the Philly show, but the reverse clearly indicates that it is a promo for the Wacky Postcard series - the Wacky Postcard logo is right there.  I'll attach a scan.

I don't know that the Philly show connection makes the Fantastink card a Postcard series related Wacky.

Categorization is getting confusing.  For example, I don't consider the recent Weakies poster art promo card to go with the Wacky Postcard series'; it's a promo for Topps Vault that just happens to be postcard size, and the reverse makes no mention at all of the Wacky Postcard Series.  Along those lines, I should probably remove the 2009 Halloween sketchcards from this Postcard Master List, as they were not related to a postcard issue, and do not reference the Postcard Series on either the front or back.

Any toughts?

Your right about the Peepers.  I was thinking it made a reference to the Philly show on the back and I haven't looked at it in a while.  I just think it would be nice to have a checklist that shows ALL of them.  Maybe a new "MISC" category could be made, although it would only be 2 cards for now (Weakies postcard and Fantastink").  Actually the Oksaka would be in there too I guess.  That didn't reference ANS at all I don't believe.

I keep my own checklists and I have the postcards as a separate category, then ANS, and then a misc. category.  I have all of the Abrams bonus cards in the misc. category, as well as the Philly custom sets, and the Fantastink promo.

When you refer to "Philly custom sets", am I correct that those are the same series which Fantastick is part of (as card #52), and there's not a special Wacky subset??  I have several of those cards, but they're mostly dealer photos.  Was there another Wacky in that set?

Those Philly custom sets get very confusing.  There were the hand-outs from a Philly show that reference the actual show on the back of the card, and they have blank spaces where the personal info goes.  They are the tough ones to find.  It was promoting the custom sets.  Then John F. did a set of 14 with different characters on the backs.  Then they corrected the red which was very dark in the first sets, so they did a 2nd set with bright red.  I also show a blank-back set of 9 but I don't recall who did them.  I'd have to check my write-up on that.

Right, it DOES make a reference to the Philly Show, but to me, the Wacky Packages Postcards logo on the reverse makes it a postcard promo.  I can remove if from the list if that's what most people here think, but I really do think it belongs here - the limited distribution and association with a card show shouldn't trump the series logo.

I've updated the list in the second post of this thread to include the recent goodies.  Please take a look and let me know if I've goofed, or omitted anything.

I took a while on this, wondering about the inclusion of the comic, and eventually decided it belonged on the list, but we can certainly debate the issue.

One change people might not notice is that while scrutinizing things for the new Halloween additions, I realized that what I thought was a code (NS1) on the reverse of the Peepers promo postcard from last year was apparently actually a card number!  The Baby Wrath promo postcard says NS2 in the exact same spot on the reverse.

I'm guessing it's for Non Sport. I see the NS2 listed on their list of promo cards for the show.

I agree with you Pat, Fantastink is part of the "Philly Non Sports Show" card series focusing on Neil as an artist. Those cards are cool as I am collecting them in the side.
 As for your master list it is Fantastink, I mean Fantastic !!!

(BTW, I found it curious the date of the beginning of the auction is August 8, and also the scroll like sheet of paper coming off the bottom of the wavy cereal box)

Yep, I left the Weakies card off the list because, while it is postcard sized, it makes no mention or reference to the Wacky Postcard series.  When I got mine from Willie a couple of months ago, I really looked at it, and it just didn't refer to postcards at all.  I'm not even sure if it belongs on the Wacky Packages promo list, since it's an auction promo, not a series promo, but I think that's probably the best place for it.  Of course, I can always add it to the postcard master list if that's what everyone wants.

I have something that is not on the list. A sketch by Mark Parisi based on Mr. Ghoulbar (Halloween 2010).

Major oops on my part with the Halloween 2010 Mr. Ghoulbar sketches, thanks for the catch!  I have one of those sketches myself.  The list in post #2 has now been updated to include that sketch title.

I'm not sure what you're referring to with Halloween 2009 - any chance you could post a scan (front and back)?  That section is the one I have the most trouble with, as items were released so many different ways, but yet were all Halloween related.  It's possible that I have the item you're referring to listed, but just not quite where you're expecting it.

The first Halloween post card came with the series 4 postcard set in 2009. With each set of postcards, (regular and limited edition), there was also one of three halloween trading cards H1- Ghostess, H2- Bricks, or H3- Bots. The original list has the trading card as coming in the regular postcard set only. Really a minor thing! Thanks so much for doing this master list.

Speaking of master list; does anyone do them for ANS and Old School since Greg does not do them any more?

OK, you're talking about the black postcard with Bots, Bricks and Ghostess Fright Pies, and the regular sized orange border cards of those titles, right?  These are on my list, but not under the heading of PC4, really because of the way they were distributed.  In fact, check the section of my list that says Halloween 2009, directly after PC4, and you'll see that there are actually 2 versions of that Halloween postcard, one which was primarily distributed at a card show with 'Tricky Treat' on the back, and the much more common 'Tricked Out' version that was mailed with PC4.  Problem there is, I know for a fact that at least one 'Tricky' version was included in a PC4 set.  Because of that, and the special Halloween sketch cards that were done separately from PC4, I put all the Halloween 2009 items into a separate category.  I've been debating with myself since the latest set about putting some of these items in the PC4 section.  Maybe I should just sort of combine them.

There are a number of other 'master lists' here, just scroll down through the thread titles and you should spot ANS8, and some others.  We had discussed a child board for master lists, maybe that will help people find them.

The list reads:

I don't remember the non-limited sets having the H1-3 bonus cards but I just checked my info sheet and it does show that it was.  If you go to buy a series 4 non-limited set now they don't show the "H" bonus cards as part of the set though.  Was this just for a short time period that they were sold that way?

That is a good question Rob. Maybe they don't include them now since that Halloween series is two years old now. I have recently been organizing my postcard stuff while cross referencing to the list in this thread and realized that I had more of the H1-3 cards than I should have had if I only got one with each regular version and quickly realized I got one with either version when I bought them.

looking at what I bought, I confirm that also.
since the H1-3 are no longer available with the regular edition postcards, how about a slight tweak to what you posted. How's this?

What info sheet are you checking?  I'll see if I can find an old thread - I thought only the non-limited PC4 sets came with the H1-H3 cards, much like what Topps did with the mini postcards with PC7, but one card per set, with random distribution.

I knew they were in the limited sets for sure.  The part I must had forgotten was that they were in the non-limited sets because they are considered pretty rare now.  They must not have done it very long.  We should review the old PC4 thread to see if we can confirm they came with the non-limited sets.

The "info sheets" I was referring to are what I use in my binder books before each series.  I include everything that came with the series as well as a summary of the series.  If I don't do it soon after the release of a series I forget because my memory is so bad.

Based on my review of the old threads, it seemed pretty clear that the H1-H3 cards were in both the limited and regular sets.  Take a look at this thread:

That pretty much confirms it.  Do you remember when the non-limited sets stopped including them, or if we even discussed it?

I know I bought a bunch of them to get the Halloween cards, need to see if I still have the packing slips - wouldn't give us an absolute end date, but it would at least be something.

If there is no difference in these cards whether they came with regular or limited post cards, then why are we going nuts trying to nail down exactly the random ways Topps distributes an item?  We should list the primary way and leave it at that.

Fanatical pegged the line to use:
- Halloween Trading cards: 3 different titles released with all Series 4 limited edition sets and with Series 4 regular postcard sets while supplies lasted (H1- Ghostess; H2 - Bricks; H3 - Bots); one random card included with each set

The Bricks thread on the other forum seemed pretty clear that the cards were in both types of sets, and I remember buying single sets trying to get a Bricks card.

For anyone interested in dates, the lastest invoice I have for a single PC4 set is dated 11/27/2009, so the H1-H3 were apparently still available then.

I've used my old invoices to add some more date info to the list, and I've made some changes to the Halloween 2009 and 2011 sections.

Hi Pat,
Very nice work. It's a great reference. Would you consider including the pcm1 to 3 mini postcard set & wasn't there a pcm4 too? Also I remember a weakies postcard promoting something recently. Would that belog here?

I do see the four PCM postcards in her list, unless she just added them.  Look in series 7 and the 2011 Halloween series for them.

"ReSee's Peepers" was distributed at the Philly show, but the reverse clearly indicates that it is a promo for the Wacky Postcard series - the Wacky Postcard logo is right there.  I'll attach a scan.

I don't know that the Philly show connection makes the Fantastink card a Postcard series related Wacky.

Categorization is getting confusing.  For example, I don't consider the recent Weakies poster art promo card to go with the Wacky Postcard series'; it's a promo for Topps Vault that just happens to be postcard size, and the reverse makes no mention at all of the Wacky Postcard Series.  Along those lines, I should probably remove the 2009 Halloween sketchcards from this Postcard Master List, as they were not related to a postcard issue, and do not reference the Postcard Series on either the front or back.

Any toughts?

Thanks Bigtomi for directing me to this post regarding the weakies postcard. Maybe there should be 1 more "Miscellaneous or Other" list for all items that are officially released topps items, but not directly related to an ANS, OLDS or Postcard series. This would include the Weakies promo postcard, Neil's fantastink card, and I know I have at least a couple of other promo cards not directly related to the 3 big categories. I'll have to check & provide an update later. Neil's 2009 halloween sketch giveaways could also possibly be moved to this list.

Loafy Taffy could be added to a miscellaneous list, but I believe it still also belongs in the Postcard list because the back has the Wacky Packages Postcards logo.

I agree, Loafy and Baby Wrath should be in the Postcard list.  The way I have my collection broken out, is I have all of the postcard series in the same binder including these two titles, and then I have a Misc. 2004+ binder that has all of the Philly promo series and Fantastink card, as well as the Abrams cards and Eraser series.

I wonder if it's overkill, or if it's even possible to know the on sale times & sell out times for the series... I think the first series sold out quickly. I don't know about the 2nd, but I know the 3rd was available for a while (at least a week or more. I believe from the 4th through the 7th (including Halloween releases), it was a matter of hours, and the 8th was a matter of a couple of weeks.

I don't think anyone has kept track of it but the info should all be on the forums with some digging.  I guess series 1-4 (maybe 5) would be on Greg's old forum and the rest would be here.

You've done an awesome job. I was just looking at my PC's over the weekend and got a bit confused as to what bonus stuff came with some series. It really is a lot to keep track of.

I wonder if it's overkill, or if it's even possible to know the on sale times & sell out times for the series... I think the first series sold out quickly. I don't know about the 2nd, but I know the 3rd was available for a while (at least a week or more. I believe from the 4th through the 7th (including Halloween releases), it was a matter of hours, and the 8th was a matter of a couple of weeks.

Here's what I've found so far on the Limited Edition sets sell out times:

PC1 sold out in roughly 10 hours (100 sets)
PC4 sold out in roughly 9 days (200 sets)
PC5 sold out in roughly 6.5 hours (250 sets)
PC7 sold out in roughly 3 hours (500 sets)
PC8 sold out in roughly 13 days (999 sets)

Does that 4th series sell out time include some returns or other sets becoming available & selling again? I remember that 4th series being hot, especially with Smokin Joe's first combos. I can't believe it took 9 days to sell 200 sets.

I looked at posts on Greg's old forum, they showed an issue date of 10/9/2009, and a "sold out" post around 7:18 pm on the 18th.  There was an earlier post of "sold out" on the 16th, but then posts saying perhaps someone had sets in a cart that were released, and those last sets apparently lasted until the 18th.

Will continue to look for more date info, and make corrections as necessary.  Just had to stop last night, my eyes were about to fall out of my head.....

Hi Pat, Thanks for checking into this. In personally remembering series 4, I can see how it may have taken a few days to sell out. Initially I was surprised that it wasn't hours, but this was the first series that had sketches "outside the box." Since no one was expecting that, it may have taken until people received their sketches & posted some of the image to realize that this series was very different than the one before. I would doubt that it would take much longer than a day or 2 after the sale - once people started posting their sketches to the forum. This was also the first series that I remember spending over $100 for a sketch (9 to life) & even over $200 for a smokin Joe combo. I can remember feeling very uncomfortable doing it (crazy actually). I didn't feel nearly as bad as the olds1 color sketches started topping $1000+. I guess everything is relative.

Series 6 may have one of the shortest sell out times, but one of the longest delivery times. I would say we could also include the date of initial shipment/delivery of release 6B. I remember it was quite a cliffhanger there for a while waiting to hear about the outcome of the lost shipment. I wonder if it will ever turn up...

I also wonder if UPS has auctions similar to storage wars for lost or mislabeled packages. Someone could potentially make a serious score!!

I agree, the surprise changes to the sketch cards introduced in Series 4 was the reason the sets lasted as long as they did.  With Series 1-3, even completists only needed to buy 3 sets and then trade.  I recall thinking that I'd be covered buying 5 sets, to get one from each artist, thinking that would also be one of each title, and wondering if I was nuts to spend that kind of money.  Then I was discouraged when I heard how scarce the Hoppy Meals were, and I don't believe I ordered any more.  Part of what contributed to the week plus timeframe was likely that there weren't so many people considering the limited sets like easy "triple your money" deals like they do now, and the prices were still causing some to wait and see what they got before blindly dropping another $200.  The buyers on the west coast probably didn't pay for overnight shipping either, adding to the extension.

I remember series 4 being harder to buy sets. Series 5 was impossible for me as I had to travel that day. I was lucky to even get a Fe sketches. Neil came thru to help me out with one set. The rest of the handful of sketches I have are for forum trades and eBay.

I was too. I just put in a snipe about 2 hours ago and was surprised to win. I don't know how many hoppy meals Smokin Joe did but it was around 10-20.

Congrats and Wowser!! I never expected my little hoppy to become 'a holy grail' of sketch cards... or that my inability to draw the same thing twice would be credited with helping start the sketch card collecting craze (which, after drawing hundreds of those little  nightmares, has also contributed to my inability to open the wretched, claw like appendage I used to call my right hand).
I sit here drawing another batch of hundreds for ANS10, wondering what would happen if I only drew 'Hoppy' sketch cards fom now on... flooding the market with happy little Hoppy's? Would it help the sale of ANS10? Would it anger the collectors who did score their Hoppy cards already?  Hmmmm....

   (And actually, it was Jay (in my mind, and in my car) who should be credited with crazing sketch cards... he drew all 3,500 (or a million, I get those confused) for the first Old School release. He remains the king of sketch cards in my book.

  Thanks Jay,

That's a really good question. I can honestly say I don't know how many Hoppy sketch cards I drew. I don't think I scanned them before submitting them... I will check my files. That would make it easy to know for sure. I don't remember it being very many. The '10' number is in the ballpark.
  I have been scanning nearly all my sketch cards recently, and I can also tell you I am trying to do as few repeat characters as possible. The direction we (artists) get from Topps regarding sketch cards has been a little different for each release. Sometimes asking for a set number of specific characters and more recently letting artists do any published Wacky they want. I'm covering a wide range this time, so your favorites may surly be in there somwhere... including a couple new Hoppy Meal cards... maybe. Will Hoppy Meal combo up with Hippy trash bags? Or Hopeless Snowballs? Or Hop & Mop & Glop? The possibilities are endless!

Hi there - I started to collect the postcard sets recently, mainly for the bonus cards believe it or not, since I am such a Wacky collector I needed to have all of the regular-size cards to remain complete.  Anyway, the postcards themselves are very cool so now I am hooked on them too.

My questions are twofold, so I appreciate anyone willing to help out with their knowledge:

1) Is there a complete Master list of all the sets somewhere?  I see that RawGoo had posted a list through Series 8 (very helpful - thanks!) but I believe there have been several releases since then.   Any re-direction to a complete list would be welcome...especially helpful as I try to make sense of the confusing TS bonus card series.

2)  Are the Wacky's in the postcard sets totally unique and original to the postcards?   I am not that well-versed on recent Wacky's the know, but they are very good and deserve a wider release than this limited format, such as in ANS or Old School (if appropriate) andf would really like to see these as stickers.

Thanks for the help....

Hi  Derryl,

Glad to hear you like the postcards! I'm Neil, the original designer of the postcards and one of the artists. I think most people here will agree, the postcards are a nice compliment to the All New Series sets.

In answer to your first question, I rely on RawGoo (Pat) to keep us up to date with the master list. In fact, she keeps much better track of it than I do, so if you have any specific questions, I'd recommend asking her.

With regards to part 2 of your post, all of the titles in the postcard sets are completely unique. Originally, I wanted to include regular size equivalents of the postcards, but opted for sketch cards instead, since it's seemed more appropriate given the limited nature of the sets. Later in Series 4, we introduced the regular size artist bio cards and then in series 6, we finally released the mini postcards, which are regular size redraws of some of the titles that appear in the postcard sets. On a related note, there's always the possibility of releasing the postcards in a sticker format, but I'll leave that for a future discussion.

Have fun collecting and look for more postcard sets in 2013!
Neil

Thanks for making this list available. Its extremely helpful, especially for someone like me that is basically just starting out again after taking a number of years off. I am absolutely LOVING the postcard series as I love the larger medium size. I just wish they would make the sets larger in size (12-20 postcards per set) and would make the sketch cards postcard sized. Thanks again!

I've got a preliminary write-up done for Halloween 2013.  I've noted 11 sketch artists, as follows:

Brower
Camera
Engstrom
Gambino
Graham
Kirscht
Parisi
Pingitore
Simko
Smokin' Joe
Zapata

Have I missed anyone?

I was figuring on adding the posters, since they are of the postcard art, but omitting the comic, since the only connection to the postcards seems to be the cover art.  Thoughts?

My Postcard Master list post at the beginning of this thread can't be updated to include Halloween 2013 - seems there is a 20,000 character limit in a post, and this put me over the limit  :sad:

Will ponder upon this, and what to do.  May just create separate threads for each series, but that leaves binders kind of hanging, and maybe promos, too.  Meanwhile, here's what I have so far for Halloween 2013.  Please LMK if I've erred anywhere.

an option for the interim  - since you own message 1 and message 2 in the thread, move everything from message 2 into message 1, then move your new Halloween 2013 stuff into message 2. Don't 'delete' message 1, just modify it. I don't think there is anything to keep from message 1, so just edit that all out.
You'll have room for a year or two more of postcard stuff then, and it'll all be at the beginning of the thread.

When did you order them Tom?  Should have come with the LE. Mine were shipped together. I even ordered a second one to keep unopened, and that came already(Topps making up to me?) i doubt it.

Ordered them all together, they're all on one invoice. Only got the comic and LE set. Guess it's Phone time...

LOL, thanks. I actually just shot off an email to storehelp. Let's see where that gets me first. It should be storehell@topps.com.

I remember not...and I'm pretty certain I don't have it anymore. According to the site, Topps is working on it.

Just curious...would this be considered a color sketch...been looking at this card for years and it dawned on me it has color highlights. Any thoughts?

I believe all of Mark's Dead & Buried sketches had color highlights.  Anyone have a sketch lacking the highlights?  The way some collectors value sketches, that could actually ending up be considered "more valuable" to some.   :-\

Sorry to bring this old topic back up but I had a question.

For the 2012 Halloween set was there a "Strike/Slay Day" postcard for the limited editions?

It seems as all the backs of the limited edition postcards state that there was only six in this set.

In contrast all the backs of the regular edition postcards state that there was seven in this set.

Thanks.

No problem bringing up old threads, especially master lists - that's what they're here for!

I'll find my binder and check the actual postcards, but I'm pretty sure I had them right in front of me when I added them to the master list, and that there was a Strike/Slay Day postcard in the limited edition set.
Title: Re: Wacky Packages Postcard Sets Master List

I just checked your master list and found out that the limited edition had seven postcards and the regular edition had six postcards. Hope that helps.

I know, but I was offering to check the actual binder to confirm that I hadn't goofed.

Pat,

Good job on this list! Only two mistakes that I saw:

*The 2009 promo postcard's right name is Croca-Cola Zero.
*The Strike/SlayDay combo postcard is in the regular edition of Halloween Postcards 2012, not the limited edition.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Pat,

Do you think that the Halloween aluminum plaques should be put in the list as well? After all, they were all based on the Halloween Postcards.

Am I the only one who noticed that in Wacky Halloween Postcards 2012's Plots, a word is spelled wrong?

It's "Sacrificially",  not "Sacraficially".

This is in the Limited Edition and regular edition postcards and on the Official Collectors Binder.

Just sayin'.

Off the subject, I know of another misspelled word in Duzn't. It's "Beatniks", not "Beatnicks".

Does anyone else know about any other instances of this?

Pat,

I noticed two things about the Wacky Halloween Postcards.

*Two of the parodied products - Ghostess Fright Pie - A-a-pple and Cracker Drac - aren't candy products (the first is a pie (pastry) in reality and the second is candy-coated popcorn and peanuts in reality),
*One of the postcards - Mellow Cup - doesn't have a horror theme; instead, it has a 1960s theme.

Pretty interesting, huh?

Like a lot of people, I assume,  I am using some of the extra at home time (no commuting when working at home) to check through my WP collection using some of our excellent master list resources (Thanks Pat!). And, I really enjoy going through the Postcard sets again anyway. I did have a couple questions after going through the list...

1) I read through the thread here and didn't see this discussed unless I missed it. I see that the 8th series postcards has listed 8 artists bio cards, including George Wright. I do not have one of these. But, I do have a bio card for series 9 for him that appears to actually be a promo card for series 9. I will add some pics of it in a bit. It is labeled as "Wacky Packages artists series 9" but also has an upper right corner blip "Coming Summer 2012".  The background is different than the other series 9 bio cards, The title on the reverse of the card is of CLUBBED.  Is this the bio card noted in the Series 8 description or a different animal? Did this come included with one of the Series 8 sets?

2) Will the Wacky Packages Cereal 2015 and the April Fools Day 2020 sets eventually  make their way onto this list as well, or are they included in other master lists?

the five 2015 SDCC cereal postcards are in the Bonus and Promo Master List

I'm scratching my head on that Clubbed card though?

Patrick,

These are the notes in my Wacky Base system I entered at the time:

Wright Bio Card (Promo for PCS9) (Post Card Series 9)
Title: Re: Wacky Packages Postcard Sets Master List

Clubbed was a PC Series 8 bio card that happened to be advertising Series 9.

Does anyone remember whether the Clubbed/Wright bio card was included in Series 8 sets as one of the two bio cards? If not, how was it obtained?

It came in the Series 8 sets as one of the two bio cards.

I'll be adding the 2020 April Fools Postcard set info at the end of the second post in this thread soon, probably later today.  I have to have all my stuff and notes, all together in one house, without any work meetings.
