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.

Mine showed up today, earlier than they had indicated.  I like the 5x7 cards.  Sorry I ponied up for a large one, as the resolution is very disappointing.

Got mine today, as well. Ditto on the 5x7 cards, they are fairly decent quality and kinda cool, 'specially being limited quantity. Too bad to hear about the "poster size" ones being a bit shoddy. A shame.

The printing and card stock for the large one is done as nicely as the small ones - I think the problem I'm having with it is that the new text and blue/red election stuff is brand new and sharp, and the enlarged original Cap'n Crud lettering looks kind of "Cruddy" in comparison.  Checking out the 5x7s, I think there are some other titles that might look a lot better in the large size.

The 5x7s just fit into two pocket pages, so I'm putting them in a Wacky postcards binder.  They display really nicely that way.

My set arrived today (#04/99 for those scoring at home). I like the set. The size of the cards is nice and its a fun election tie-in item. A nice item at the price.

I got number 6.  I wonder if they sent them in the order we ordered them?

If that's true, I got the last set - number 99!

I didn't order until they were almost gone, and got in the 30's.

And I ordered pretty early in the timeframe and got #64.

So it was random.  I wonder why, when you think it would be easier to just pack them in order as orders come in.

I'm sure these came in more than 1 box, and I'm sure more than 1 person packed these. So, if that is the case, each person would start from a different number. (plus I doubt any case had the #1 on it and said "start here")

by the way, I did not buys these so my number is 0.

Jim, don't know and no big deal but I just curious that if someone wanted a low number could they do something (order early perhaps) to increase their chances.  Doesn't seem like they could.

looks like these were ready in 2014, or else someone put down the wrong date initially in the copyright notice.
you can still see the '4' on four of the card fronts, where a 2015 was pasted poorly over a 2014 (3, 4, 9, 10)

Patrick, great catch.  It also looks like the copyright symbol was half covered by the 2015 paste over.
