I did not buy this one as it is not technically a "Wacky". It does look like a parody card to me. Can those here who have not purchased any of the non-"wacky" cards in this set please comment if they went for it?
nope. Didn't, as it wasn't a Wacky. And I've never cared for the 'look' of GPK art.
Looked wacky-ish though and made me wonder if any past GPKs have ever done something similar, using a magazine or book cover to frame a GPK character. Maybe there was a Mona Lisa?

I HOPE! They release a MASTER Set.... be smart Topps - Take care of the LOYAL ONES!!!!
I think that would be disaster. The 'loyal' ones are the ones buying these golden goose eggs every day at their inflated prices.

Although, the GPKs and Wackys don't have the same statement as the Baseball NOW cards:  Topps will print and deliver only the amount that is purchased within the allotted 24-hour time frame.

I did get the TIME card for the very reason you mentioned.

Andrew, I got one as well for the Wacky Magazine connection.  I also thought it would look nice on the page with the rest.

I think Joe is referring to a 9 pocket page. I can live without the Satanic Trump Spoof.  >:D  Since its not a "Wacky".

Andrew, correct, I was referring to the joy and sometimes bane of collecting, the 9 pocket page.  I just hope for the Wacky Packages 50th set, the sub-sets are 9 cards and not the dreaded 10.  After years of collecting I still haven't figured out a good way to lay out a 10 card set!

I posted a direct link to the honeycomb listing on the topps site up above in post 114 shortly after it went live on Thursday.  That was at 2:48 pm ET.
Not sure why you were never able to see the listing during its window.

Alas, and my loss!

The Old School subset is 10 cards. Sorry!  :'(

I think the 10 card set issue would make for a pretty cool parody. The 10th card must feel pretty bad; getting separated from his pals and stuck in a random page with assorted other 10th cards.  How does The Artist feel when they learn their creation has been given the dreaded 10th card label? Better 10th than not printed I guess.

Rawgoo I agree - I then take issue with the SD Comic Con release after the fact, but I agree with you.

I wish they had placed the whole set at once - not hit or miss like many of us have said we have lives and jobs and can not check in every day....Wacky Xmas my friend!

Andrew, yeah but with these the lines between Wacky and GPK seem a little mixed.  Bigly Chew was listed as GPK but seemed pretty Wacky to me, so i purchased that as well!

It's listed (erroneously) as a GPK now, in the sold section, but it's definitely a Wacky.
Although the caricature does resemble Brent's GPK Donald to some extent.

I think Bigly will have a Wacky Logo on the back.

I agree with Patrick. The gag writing has been stellar. That ticket gag was particularly inspired. "Admit nothing!"

Thanks Mark!

Sold Out are probably not the right words, but that's what topps is using.

I think that wording is pretty smart of them, as I believe it creates a greater sense of urgency than "No Longer Available" or some such.

Not to over-think it, I believe the "sold out" tag triggers the (negative) emotion we missed out on something that others didn't.

I frequent a site that sells limited edition playing cards. They keep up every item that's ever sold out with the "SOLD OUT" tag. I'm sure it helps drive sales.

I think you're doing a great job.  Also think it was a very good idea to insert placeholder posts - who knows how many cards could be issued!!

So the Title and the link are set up for a different wacky than yours, which is shown on the website
Tangerine Dream spray on tan.
Wonder which one they'll actually send?

Yeah, I just alerted them to that. Hopefully they will correct that shortly. I guess we know what the next title is!
