They're up for sale!  I just ordered my set with free shipping.  No indication on the website about the 17th series "lost" binder - hopefully they'll ship it to those of us who ordered all the sets as promised.

They had better explain this stuff with the 17th binder!!!!

I just placed my order.  It will be interesting to see how many 17th series binders don't get shipped to those that are entitled to them.

I only placed an order for the 4 binders in the last 2 releases so I'm only expecting one 17th series binder.

I placed my order as well, and will have two complete sets, so we'll see about the mystery 17th Lost Series?

Placed my order for 1 set. I got 2 of the first two sets and 1 each of the last two sets ; so I expect 1 and 1/2 Free 17th Binders  :)

Sorry for the belated post! 2014's off to a busy start! As you've already noticed, the 13-16 Wacky binders went live today. That's all the info I have at the moment, but I'll post here with any news.

trying to order and use the Gift Card I received from the Black Friday weekend sales - and guess what? it doesn't work. says the code is invalid and that the card has already been used. ridiculous.

anybody else have one of these that they used successfully?

What a hassle ordering the binders at the Topps site, it had me running in circles, wouldn't let me log in, after a dozen attempts I logged in as a guest, typed in my name etc... & the order went thru.I better get credit for 2 sets as I stuck with ordering doubles till the end.

I received shipping notice on the binders. I was really hoping to get the 17th binder with it as a surprise. I guess it will still be a surprise. :]

How'd you get free shipping? I had $11 for basic ground rate.

I had contacted Topps Customer Support requesting confirmation that they have records of my 4 binder Release purchases. Here is the reply:


"You will receive binder 17 when it becomes available in late February."

It's going to take until February since they have to print the 30 cards and 9 piece puzzle that will go in binder 17.   ;)

It was right underneath those three options, but like a paragraph and a half away. If you try to put in another
order you'll see the round checkbox. You can always cancel the test order.

grumble, grumble.  It all depends when/where you make the shipping selection.
It's FREE on the Shopping Cart page but not on the Checkout page.
That's messed up.

What art can grace the cover of a 17th Binder?   The others all refer to produced wackies.

How many 17th's will print? It should be the amount of orders for the1 - 16 binders or will it 150, free to the 1 - 16 & a price for everyone else also for us that bought more than 1 full set, do we get 1 binder or 1 for each set ?
 My opinion is print enough for the 1 - 16 set purchasers, sound fair ?

I say print all 150. That would be the only one that I might actually be interested in, overpriced as they were. Again, it would depend on the price. Topps really dropped the ball on these IMO by not printing on the spine and the inside.

Not really, I did not get ithe first set from Topps. I won't rehash that experience but I tried. I did successfully get the rest from Topps. I realize I won't get the 17th binder for free but would hope Topps prints the 150 and sells those left after the full set purchasers get theirs'.

I would contact customer service and explain how you tried to get release one and had to resort to the secondary market to acquire it after whatever occurred. They may be sympathetic to your situation. I feel they should not make the 17th available for purchase separately. It was held out as the bonus for purchasing all 16 binders. To sell it on its own later would not send the right message relative to future promotions of this type. Given the "Spine Issue" we already have to deal with; those who spent the $1040 to acquire these from Topps should at least get something special and highly limited that rewards them for their outlay.

Response to my query about a 17th Sticker set to go with the 17th binders:


"My apologies for the delayed response. As it turns out, there are no plans for a 17th series Wacky at time and I have not been able to obtain any information about any release in the near future. Please feel free to check in with me any time for updates and I'll be happy to share any information I may have."

Dude,

They better honor how many sets of FULL 1-16 Binders people bought - IF you bought 2 FULL sets - you get 2 FREE 17th series binders...for FREE - there should be none for sale....It would be real sh*tty if they don't do it the way they advertised it!!  :sad: :sad:

and they should have either 17th Wacky Set or at least a special Card/sticker or COLOR SKETCHES!! something ....anything...
