So it's like a 50/50 chance I'll get an additional sketch with the binders?

I got a sketch with my binders, but it's just one of those blue-line Jay sketches from Old School 2.

Just got binders today. I received a Joe Simko OS3 sketch of HEADS AND BOLDERS (B&W) with my two advert cards. Like many others here, we were hit with 11 inches of snow followed by bitter cold 2 Sundays ago. It was just this past weekend that the County road crews got some of the more rural roads (like ours) cleared enough for deliveries to resume. I watched the Fed-Ex tracking information for this package last week as it showed "out for delivery", then later that day "returned to depot because or weather exception" over and over.  

I noticed the series 13 binder is similar to the series 11 in that it has a red series number on it. Wish I knew what that was supposed to mean.

I've given up trying to make sense of it.
Why is 13 the only one with a starburst that is not yellow?
Why do 11 and 13 have a red and orange numbers respectively on their spines?
Why do Neil's (1, 7, 16) all have artwork showing through the starburst?
Why is 16 pink, when the wrappers were red??

I am confident the 17th Binder will hold the answers to all of the above questions. It will be the missing link to the binder saga.
The key that fully unlocks the true power of the Binder Legacy. Be careful when opening the 17th Binder Package as the
awesomeness of the Lost 17th Binder may be too much for some of us to bear.

I think Topps should include several sketch cards from the 2013 Halloween comic with each 17th binder due us - preferably one sketch from each of the comic stories. Or one sketch from each of the postcard series - why not ask for the moon? xD

I looked at the images from earlier in this thread and you make some interesting observations.

I'm especially puzzled by the second and forth points on your list.

I had an idea that possibly different people were involved in various aspects of the production of each wave of the release, and that created some inconsistency, but that still doesn't make any sense....it's wacky

Where did the pink come from? S16 has red wrappers...although the binder is beautiful even in pink...

That has me confused as well.  I'm wondering if the printing was done incorrectly, and they didn't hit the target color for the background so it turned out pink instead of red.  I thought the same thing about series 10 (which is supposed to match the deep purple wrapper, but just turned out to be a weird blue color).

I thought maybe they were shooting for the spines to look like the wrappers, where the large blank area is the color of the wrapper and the number is done in the color of the wacky logo for that wrapper. So, quite a few should have yellow for the number, which they do, but a bunch should also not be yellow - 3,4,8,11,13,14 should be red, and 16 should be white.

with the pink 16th, it's vaguely like the color of the color of the products on the wrapper?

I guess, like with the original 16, there are oddities and inconsistencies and that's all part of the charm

I kind of wondered the same thing. I was about 75% sure he was being funny.

This is why itís so difficult to communicate with only text; we are missing all of the facial expressions and body language. If we could have seen DrDeal as he said this, we would have all laughed and been absolutely sure of his humorous intention.

One study showed that 93% of communication is nonverbal, and since here, all we have is text (without even voice inflection) sometimes I think of us as quadriplegics trying to play soccer.

Thatís one reason it is so difficult discuss religion, politics, welfare reform, abortion, evolution, etc here. If we were all around a table playing poker, we certainly could have a civil discussion about Obama Care, but not here, with only text.

I received my 13-16 WP binders this past Friday. Upon my initial inspection, I noticed that the 16th Series Binder puzzle had a duplicate card in it. The bottom-middle card was duplicated and the extra one is in the middle-right position.

My first reaction was to contact Topps' Customer Service, but then I decided to post here in the event that one of the forum members may have received a duplicate middle-right card (and be needing a bottom-middle card)

I remember someone else having a similar issue and was curious as to whether or not it was resolved via the forum members, or by contacting Topps.

Any help/info is greatly appreciated!

George


Just a quick update regarding the above issue... Topps came through for me! I came home Friday evening to find my replacement 16th Series Binder puzzle waiting for me!

I had a dupe piece in the 6th series and ended up working to get it resolved through Customer Service. They sent me the puzzle piece I needed, and they didn't want the dupe, so I still have it.

Same here and its about time!! Not even THINKING of buying any new product until this arrives or comes up on the website,
or until I pay my taxes!
In the meantime, trying to complete other sets and getting more sketches if I can afford them....
