I received the Old School and Postcard binders tonight. Very cool Puffy Binders. Much puffier than any other binders I own. They almost feel inflated. Very soft and puffy vinyl feel to them. The stamp sheet is quite nice and I think the numbers were to give them a "stamp feel"  ie: numbers instead of 8 Cents etc.  The wax pack
completes the Old School set. Great job on these. Makes me want to buy one of the 2010 series Binders also.

Can you post a scan of the stamps?

My pics won't post as they are not formatted correctly and I don't know how to change that in my camera.
The Topps site has a shot of them as you are aware.

Just got mine (all 3) also Brother...I agree, it's a great time to be WACKY!!! The (Stamp-Sheet) was a lot cooler than I thought it would be & the "Wrapper" was a nice touch w/the (Old School) "Binder"

I just got all three of the binders and they are outstanding. The quality is top notch. Judging these by the original pics the store had up is a waste of time. These are really nice. I think they need a few more 8x10 pages in the OLDS binder other than the one for the wrapper as I could not fit the red envelope from the boxes into the 5x7 sleeves plus I wanted to put the flyers and coupons into the binder as well. Ah well, I'll pick some up at the Philly Show if some dealer has them. The back of the postcard binder is very funny.

I didn't order any because the Topps-store description and pics was so lame.  If they are available at the show, I may pick them up, saves shipping too.  Seems kind of unscientific on how Topps is taking counts on what products to bring to the show.  Seems they are likely going to run out of product!

They are bringing a certain amount of each item to the show and with knowing how many things some people here may want they will bring that much more.

I got all 3 binders today. Awesome! I love the "puffiness" of them. That wax wrapper for the OLDS binder is too fantastic! Good call by Topps to provide this as a bonus item since they were unable to do that for the actual packs.

 Does anyone know if there will be binders for any of the other ANS? The one I got today read WPOS-ANS1 on the invoice. It certainly looks like it was designed for one specific series. Just wondering.

You are actually using the stamps from the sheet?  I guess that's what they are made for but they are limited to only 250 so I'm keeping mine intact!

I got mine today too………better than I was expecting for sure.  I had no intention of actually using the binders but these have me reconsidering.

My assumption was that the "all new" binder was intended for ANS7, but they might have had any of the ANS series in mind.  I currently have all of my ANS series in one binder but it's maxed out, like 3.5" thick, so the new series will create an issue for me.

I too have all my ANS in one really thick binder. There is no way that all 6 will fit in the new binder. I may just put the new binder on the shelf for now and use it for the ANS 2010 at the end of the summer. I also have a large binder in play for both OLDS series, but will be changing over and using the new OLDS binder for series 1. It's too cool not to use it. I assume that Topps will be putting out a OLDS 2 binder at the end of the year. If Topps decides to put out more binders, I am sure I will be rethinking how I have my Wackys stored.

The binders are really nice. I might use them as pillows. It's a nice touch that the pages are included. The wrapper and stamps are cool, although I have to admit I would always prefer bonus stickers as extras.

They should have included a bonus sticker with the ANS binder.

They could have done bonus cards but a bonus sticker would have cost too much for such a limited item. I don't think anyone would have wanted these to have any additional cost.

I nixed the OLDS bonus sticker idea in favor of the wrapper as I didn't want the OLDS base set to have a sticker that was limited to 500 which would have meant many collectors never owning it. Wrappers, uncut sheets, binders, posters, etc are the types of items people are more selective to own so the lesser number works for them. That, and the wax wrapper is da bomz, boy!

I like the stamps. It's great that they came up with yet another way of presenting Wacky Pack stuff. And it's printed on sticky paper to boot. There's plenty of room for stickers and stamps and hologram idiots and whatever. By the end of this year we're going to have heaps of new Wacky Pack stickers, Old School and New School. Also postcards, LTL prints and whatever new surprises await us.

Yesterday I was excited to receive my binders that I did not look them over in detail. Today I seen what I thought was a piece of debri but in fact it was a small scratch on the cover of the postcard binder. Do you think this calls for a return becuase I would also have to pay shipping to & from Topps, if so that in itself is costly. I'm leaning to just accept the imperfection as is, what would you do?

It doesn't look too bad. I would just keep it. Shipping back to them may cost you about $9 as it did when I sent and OLDS box back to them that was missing the envelope.

I would'nt worry about it Kevin, it would cost about 1/2 the cost of the binder to send it back! Look at it as a (variation) LOL!!! :]

I'm in the same boat but as far as using the ANS binder for the upcoming 2010 set release would it actually be an offset because the themes would not match up or is that not an issue for you?

Unless you were planning to protect it and not use it you would most likely get little scratches from moving it around as you use it anyway.

That's just it, I was not sure if I was going to use them for the stickers or keep them just a collectible. You are right, if used for sticker storage there will eventually be wear & tear.

I think that 9 to Life cat did it !  ;D

I got the Postcard and Old School Binders and they are really cool. They seem to be larger than the standard size, buy it is just the puffyness of it that makes it seem that way. Anyway the sturdyness of the front and back covers is what I was concerned with by looking at the initial pic.s on the Topps site (which are different now) but I am very happy with these.

I think the postcard binder is the coolest binder I own. It absolutely makes the postcard series and the stamps are just the right bonus item. With 500 made I wonder if it will sell out? Time will tell. Glad I got one. Looking forward to putting future postcard releases in the binder. The Philly Show Promo Postcard proudly sits in the first page at present.

The binders appear to have been very well made, with good slanted D-ring construction, and I like them, thinking I'll put one set away and use one.  I would have preferred non-puffy binders, like Rittenhouse produces, as I have had problems with the puffy types getting permanent 'dents' in the past, but we'll see.

For some reason everytime I read the discriptions as "puffy" it sort of makes me giggle. I describe it the same way too. The 2 do not seem to go hand in hand, an organizing binder and puffy. Maybe I'm thinkin' of Seinfeld's puffy pirate shirt too. No puffy dents please. ^-^

Just want to clarify that the binders are NOT limited production. The lowest they could order was 400 or so. If they sell out they can always make more. Sorry for the confusion.
