The sketches should be all high quality. I believe the artists are Camera, Wheaton, Gross, Engstrom, Simko, Kirscht, & Smokin' Joe. Remember each artist only had to do 150 sketches for their binder.

I'm sorry to say that I did not contribute to the binders. We talked about it but I couldn't fit the project in. - Fred

Dang it Fred! I love your work. I thought for sure you did one of the binders. I guess we are stuck with the crummy Camera's...LOL
Just kiddin' Neil. You know I love your work as well.
Now if we could just get some tracking info from Topps!

they probably won't ship until after they sell out - so get busy and buy them all up!  :P

They should save the last 9 sets as replacements for those that receive damaged binders.

I would say that judging from all the extra postcard & old school sketches that showed up in the April fools promo, they probably have a reserve for any problems with their orders.

Topps Does not have them in yet, and anticipates getting them out in/out within 2 weeks.  :-\

I haven't heard. I wonder if a call to Topps would be helpful? They never know anything though.

I just spoke with Topps and they said they will be shipping as soon as they receive them. He said within the next couple weeks.
I also asked about buying the subsequent binders and he was very spotty with his answer. He said we will get notification when the next batch is released. I asked him if we will get first dibs on them and he couldn't answer me because he didn't know for sure. I told him it would be helpful if we can buy them before they go on sale to the public so we can get all 16 binders along with the free 17th. He said we will keep track. So I don't know what to tell you guys?

I guess there's a vague possibility then that topps could still make their advertised May shipping date, but seems more likely they are late

Knowing my luck I will buy the first 3 waves and miss out on the last wave.

probably too late to incorporate this -
but I think it would be amazingly cool to use the original 7th series checklist art on the 7th series binder cards. (correcting the typo, of course)

seeing the inferior art that actually got used just reminds of the inferior art on the cards that weren't painted by Saunders.

Do the illustrations for any of binder covers exist in desktop wallpaper form? I would love to use these as a backdrop on my computer or smart phone.

You could probably scan and stitch together. I will have to try and see but I think the binder may be too big for the scanner.

Since they don't fit nicely on the scanner it won't work. It looks really bad. Plus Topps cut off the middle of the artwork.

And if they were high enough quality, people could print out to create their own binder inside covers. Even just B&W versions of the cover might be nice to use.

You would think Topps would have scanned the original art?

Neil asked me to post this:

the new Wacky binders will go on sale tomorrow (Thursday) 11:00 am eastern time.  Also, each order contains a free gift and you get free shipping. Limit one per person/per household.

Also, I've been told to ensure the smoothest transaction, limit your order to just the new wacky binders.

No problem limiting the order - another $280 now is an awful lot right after the postcards!!

I'm a bit confused because I thought the people that bought before would get first dibs on the next series. What if a person gets shut out and then they have no chance on getting the 17th binder? It doesn't make any sense.

And what about people who brought two sets (the initial limit) last time? Shouldn't they have first dibs on getting 2 sets this time?
I bought my 2 sets via 2 different orders, but may not get 2 this time around....I had wondered how Topps were going to keep track of all this
and 'police' the buyers....

Note, I just got word that it's a limit of two per person/per household (not one).

My recollection is that they aren't keeping track of who purchased prior so they get first "dibbs".  They we're discussing a subscription service kind of thing but I thought the word that came back was that they weren't going to do that.
