 it's a fishing expedition for sure. a sky-high buy-it-now with 'make an offer' available. just looking for 'make an offer' nibbles and then will snag the hook if an offer is good enough.
of course, if the BiN is too crazy high, then that scares off anyone from even making an offer.  not sure if even $2K is low enough for a supposedly $500 card.

I agree that a 2k BIN makes potential buyers think he is looking for $1500. I usually offer 60 to 75 % of the BIN price. He should lower the BIN to $999.99

and see what offers come in.  To me the fact that it is borderless makes it look more like and acetate card or color proof card. That is what I am not into with this one.

I can't see paying SF price for a card without the black border. It did not have that classic WP look to me. More like a color separation proof card.

I received my two uncut sheets today. All is well in my redemption world now.  The giant protecto's are pretty sweet. No dinged corners!

Anyone know what it will cost to ship one of these things flat? I may sell the GPK one and want to get a handle on that factor first.

Much as I wanted to pull one of those, I just can't pay that kind of money for a new card.

Arn't there 50 made of each of these?  I think I saw that somewhere.  I own Koduck with Quacker Duck on it. I did't pay nearly that much though. (Thanks to Brad)

Are they planning to do a 2nd set of chrome to continue on or is it a done deal like the Abrams books

I have a question. Since as of now only Cracked Animals and Fearstone Tires are the only Die-Cuts that haven't been officially released as stickers,is that no longer the case now that they've been released in the Chrome series,or doesn't that count since the Chromes are cards and not stickers?

I just realized that Fearstone Tires was released in the 1982 Album series (and would've been in the 1986 Album series if it had been released there). In this case,I should've said that it hasn't been released as a regular-sized sticker, not an album-sized one.

I have a uncut Chrome Sheet and just got back from having it framed.

My daughter noticed that Fear stone has what appears to be a factory created outline (crease) around it - I never noticed the actually card does, so makes sense..... wonder why??

What did that cost to get framed? I have an uncut sheet of ANS2 clings that does nothing but sit behind my safe in that huge top loader or whatever it is called. I'd imagine this sheet is close in dimension to yours.

So I just put my WP Chrome Sheet up in my home office. I decided against framing it. I have a small storage door in my office that has a wood frame around it. I used the top of the Door frame as a resting area for the bottom of the sheet and used Command Strips on the back of the giant protecto to secure the sheet to wall.

It didn't cost anything and the sheet is now displayed.

I thought this at first, also, but then reasoned that the storage door is fairly near the floor. I'd guess the top of the sheet is only 5 or 6 feet high.

Correct. The storage door is only about three feet in height.

I had a Cheapios poster pinned to a corkboard.  That was the only one I displayed because it was the only dub I had.

Later, when I had Star Trek posters all over my walls, I bought blue sticky stuff.  Can't remember the name.

Ah, I missed the "storage" part.  That's perfect then, right at eye level!

I have a bunch of uncut Wacky sheets, but only one in a ginormous toploader.  Someday I've gotta get back to Allentown to buy a few.

I think I saw you paid $7 for that color sketch.  My how things have changed.  Congrats on scoring such a cool card. I have opened over 300 packs of chrome lately and yet to find any sketches.

Andrew I did - I tried to bid on the Melty Color - I am a bit of a completest and the half smeared Jail-O did not count as a color sketch card from the series......

Is it possible that there might be a WP Chrome Series 2 one day, like there was for GPK, or was this one so big a flop that Topps won't even bother with it? Also, as I mentioned before, does anyone else besides me think that Mixwell Hearse, the lost Wacky Ad, should've been put into the Lost Wackys subset in this series-or maybe even in the Wacky Ads subset right after Good and Empty, the one it was supposed to replace? Please, anyone, answer if you can.

Never say never, but Topps has stated many times that gpk series 3 chrome will not happen. Costs too much. I expect the same for wacky series 2, or anything else.

Dave and Adams cardworld has WP Chrome Value Packs clearance priced at 12 for $24.95

That price equates to 75 cents per pack. That's pretty low. Nice price for hunting for

Superfractors or Altered Art/ Mixed up character cards. No one is selling those as of late.

That is the best way to score those cards now. I am tempted as I would love to score another

Superfractor. I own Brittle but purchased it for a lot of $$$.
