Wow! that is cool!. When will these be available? Why only 1-4 available for pre-order?

Topps has a different ad for the binders on their site.

If only series 1-4 binders are available through pre-order, how can we take advantage of the “Lost 17th binder", which is offered for free when you purchase series 1–16?

I think it’s Bigmuc who is still on the lookout for Series 17….

It looks like you get a sketch with every binder, so if you get all 16 binders you get 16 sketches? It will be interesting how much $ these will cost

My brain also jumped to that immediate train of thought.  If they are limited, people will want to buy than as soon as possible before they run out. If only 4 are available at first...   Seems like a loophole so they never have to produce that LOST 17th Binder.

Perhaps, they will be made available for pre-order, 4 at a time, before any are actually ready to ship. So if you preorder all 16, then you get the extra binder. Boy, if these are even $18 apiece, that there is a pretty penny.

It's going to be expensive to get the whole series. I wonder what the cost will be also. I would imagine they would run about $60+ each just like a box of cards.

Looks cool. Free Sketch means at least $49.99 for a binder IMO. OK, I am in. Now I need to come up with $800. Glad they are doing them 4 at a time. I could not handle that outlay all at once.

What do they mean by the last line "Hilarious assortment or wacky ad-style collectible cards and more"?

That is a mystery. I can only assume there are other card(s) with the binder. Those binders are going to take up a lot of space!

They better limit it to 1 or 2 per person or there will be some unhappy WP people out there.

Also,  put them up for pre-order late at night with a decent amount of lead time so we don't get shut out. When hot items go on sale during business hours those of us at work w/o internet / smart phone access get skunked.

That's correct. 16 sketches (one from each binder).

They need to offer the binders:  individually or  buy the first 4 and sign up to purchase 5 -8, 9 -12 and 13 -16 in one month intervals to spread out payments. This type of subscription will let those of us who want them all to lock them in. I would hate to get 1 -12 and miss out on 13 -16.  They can paypal invoice us for the future releases.

As with ANS10, Topps can slip these where the Wackys don't shine. Regardless of price (unless they're like $5-10 each, LOL), they will be too much money. I'd rather spend this kind of money on the 4 Roxanne made. I think it's ridiculous to have one per series; and why the f@#$k do they need a sketch to go with them? These are for original series, which had nothing to do with sketch cards. Why can't they just make/sell a binder and leave it at that? Oh, I know why: 'cause nobody would buy it. Corporate America at work....

Roxanne's binders are a thing of beauty, but I will never understand why they have round rings........ :'(

I'll decide when I see the prices, and what the puzzles look like.  Might end up buying the puzzles from sketch collectors.

How do you really feel? LOL
I would imagine the sketch and that comes with a series would represent a character from that series. I just hope the sketches are well done and not slopped together quickly. This looks to be a very special limited run so they all should be spectacular.
I'm with Andrew, if I miss out on any volumes I will be pissed. Can you imagine the eBay prices on these? I can see it already - a whole set of limited Wacky binders $10,000.

You probably can sell the sketch to pay for the binder. There you go people, free binders! I'm sure I will be buying sketches if they are sold without the binder. I'm sure sellers will break this down.

You raise some valid points.

Also, why do they have to be limited edition?

Edit - I just noticed that these will be signed. Perhaps Topps will also sell non-signed, unlimited editions of these (without sketch cards).

Now this is some exciting information!  However, for me personally, it could go either way.  I'd be interested in buying them if the price were affordable (which for me they probably won't be as there are all the extras included), one could guarantee getting all 16, and if the quality were good (which it seems it will be).  Gotta hear more before I decide whether I'd pursue them or not. 

I wish Topps would make one large, high-quality D-ring binder to hold all 16 series.  It would save lots of money, shelf space, and IMO be more manageable than 16 separate binders.

Yep, if these total $800 or something I'm likely out. Was thinking they might be doable but with the sketch cards... Yikes. Also a great idea but so many Wacky things lately the $$$ are a bit low... :o

Like I said guys, if you want the binders and don't want to spend too much sell the sketches and or puzzles. You could probably get the whole binder set for free. It's really easy to do. It all depends on what you want from this limited series. There will be a big market for the extras if you only want the binders. We have to wait for mor info from Topps to come up with a buying strategy. All we know is there will be binders, sketches, and a puzzle set with each binder plus these are very limited. Look at how high the NSUpdate binders have sold for. This could turn into an investment. I don't have a lot of extra money to spend but if I can buy 2 of each binders I will go for it. I will hopefully sell the extra set to pay for my first. You know people will be left out of the pre-order due to various reasons that will be on the hunt for these through sellers. I sure hope I'm not the guy missing out on these.

I'm with Brad on the buy the binders, sell the sketches and get your binders for free idea.Not sure I will do that, depends on what the sketches look like, but its an option for those who just want the binder for a low price.

Yeah, I can see the logic behind this idea too - as long as the sketches are high caliber - I definitely like the idea of the binders, just initially mildly apprehensive about the cost and/or availability.

I know we are just speculating at this point... do you think the puzzle for each binder will be the composite picture on that binder? I would also suspect that the sketches in a particular binder would go with the Series that the binder is for. I wonder who is putting the composite picture together... Neil perhaps?

Neil would probably have to answer that. I'm hopeful Neil can share some more info next week.

They get dented too easily for my liking, but I do tend to lay them down a lot.  The worst are the Simpsons binders from years ago - they made special shapes stick up above the top, like Bart's hair and the top of Homer's head.  Those split along the edges on me.  Anyway, the regular kind, like what NSU produced, just seem classier to me.

I'll have to try using my extra postcard binders as a pillow......
