NEW! Wacky Packages Wall Art!
« on: May 13, 2015, 02:26:58 PM »
Just got this notice from Topps.  I suspect the 5 by 7 sets might go fast...
Here's a link:

Brian, my pleasure!  I have to admit when I saw the email from Topps today I almost didn't open it as I'm tired of seeing all the sports related updates.  My jaw hit the ground when I saw it was Wacky related.

Just ordered a set. Kinda neat...and fairly reasonable price-wise, too.

I just saw the email as well and I don't get it. Why an election theme? Doesn't make any sense.

I purchase one of the 5x7 sets as well. Not exactly sure what they mean in the write-up that they have clay coated fronts. I agree this seems like a pretty fair price for the set.

Everyone has been throwing their hats in the ring for 2016 the past few weeks. Have you been avoiding the news to stay away from the Brady-bashing?   >:D

Don't bring up Brady. Pisses me off :o
I would think this would be more appropriate a year from now. It only makes sense.

Just picked up a set myself.  And while I was at it, added a Cheapios poster.  Never had picked those up, but wanted to get at least one, especially since it wouldn't cost much more in shipping to add it to my order.

I doubt they will, but I hope they come in some kind of fancy Wacky wrapper.

On the Topps website the 5 x 7's seem to be encased in some kind of clear plastic bag sleeve

Well I just tried to exceed the amount in stock and it just topped out at 14.  Not sure if that's 100% accurate but still nice to see Wackys can sell quickish.

Wow, I almost missed out on these!  I've been getting home later and later in the evening and often don't bother turning on the laptop after work.

Now I need to buy some more walls.......   :P

It now says "Out of Stock" so you probably got the last one.  The set was reasonably priced, and quite limited.  I'm not surprised it sold out so quickly.

Just returned from a 5 day trip to learn I missed out on this. Trip to Cabo San Lucas was great. Missing these was  not so great.

Congrats to those who scored them.

I think I got the last set because I went to reorder again a couple minutes later and it said sold out. This was around midnight

99 is a very low count.

I didn't order them - i dont know if they are really work it - seems like another Topps attempt to squeeze the last bit of life out of the Original WPs - way over priced as usual!! i am sure they will have more...remember the posters ?? what posters? right...
the metal ones that hung on the wall were quite nice!!

So these cards are 5 x 7. That is a bit bigger than the post cards right?  Now that I realized they wont fit in my postcard binders I am less bummed I missed them.

Glad you like 'em! I originally designed these as postcards with the idea that they would be released during the upcoming campaign season. Not sure what changed in the schedule, but it's a nice surprise!

Neil, very cool idea and a fun addition to Wacky postcards even if they are 5 by 7.  Any thought to releasing a non-limited postcard (4 by 6) sized set in a fun wrapper?

Dang. Missed these because I was flying. Guess I should have bought that in-air wifi service after all!

Clay coat I believe refers to the white paint base coat on the front of the card. Good for printing on top of and getting great colors.

I did design a wacky campaign wrapper but honestly, I don't know if it's part of the set.

By the way, I think the 5x7 size is pretty popular, since they use that for a lot of other releases, but 4x6 would be cool too!

I received the email advert for these about 4:00 pm and tried three times to order. Each time, it stepped through the whole checkout process but would freeze and eventually throw an error message after about 6 minutes while attempting to submit the order. Gave up about 4:45 pm and tried again when I got home. It was working then. Leave it to Topps to release a new item while their website was having issues.

Just got my shipping notice.  These are coming from Florida, with a delivery date of Tuesday, 5/26.  This is quite different from my more recent orders.

Mine says it is out for delivery. That could be yet this evening or tomorrow. We seem to be one of the last stops for the UPS driver that has us on their route. We often get deliveries as late as 7pm or so.

Well it looks like they've hit the streets as Joe Malone just posted one for sale on eBay.  Nice pics if anyone is interested.
