print run of 375. Far closer to the print run of the other 3 GPKs in the set than the prior two wackys.
Is most of that sell number a by-product of the GPK collectors who are buying their cards in the bundle set?
How many are really being picked up as a Wacky purchase?

Dave,
it looks like you've painted all of these except Trumpbucks so far, right? Do you know who did that one?

I believe that Joe Simko did that one

That one may prove difficult to locate as they did not offer a volume discount so most of us did not get extras. They will probably surface on ebay once they arrive but you won't have much luck here.

The Thanksgiving one is my favorite so far.

I agree -- especially since they're digitally printed and not even die-cut for the stickers with that ugly thin border.  What's the cost, $0.05 per unit?  Topps' greed comes through once again.  They've already eliminated the kids with the prices of their in-store products, now they're trying to gouge the last supporters they have left.

They're not actually stickers as far as I can tell, more like a thin glossy card stock, so there's no need for a kiss-cut.  I do miss the classic black borders.

Both the gpk and wacky are advertised as stickers on the website.
Huh.

Dave, nice a Wacky in Wacky!  I always like Wackys when you see the product being used on the label!

My big question is...whose hand is that, dropping the tablets in the glass?  ;D  Did you have anyone in mind?

print run of only 285 for the Thanksgiving wacky card.
big drop in numbers compared to recent daily cards.
and a huge drop in numbers (450 vs 250) compared to GPK halloween set.
difference being, this set was entirely political, whereas the Halloween set was mostly standard gpk style

Am I the only one who finds these cards useless? They're not funny, and irrelevant to the world of Wacky Packages... Get back to using real products Topps, then I'll get back to you..

I mean, only the eBay sellers are going to buy these because they think they can make a $2 profit after they're gone..

I actually was thinking it was KellyAnne Conway's hand. She's the one that always has to clean up his mess.

Actually, a lot of people find them funny but, of course, that's just opinion. You're a Trump guy so I can see where you might not find it funny. But, yes, they are a different kind of Wacky Pack. There are some real product parodies in the 50th set and in the upcoming OLDS6

Well I'm excited for OLDS 6 but it's just my opinion on it. I really do not like them, and it's not just because I like Trump... (Again lets not get in depth with who likes who...) But I wouldn't like Wackys with any candidate.. It's just not fitting in my opinion..

I'm sorry.

You had to buy them on the Topps site, during limited windows.  Most have been a 24 hour sales period, but the Thanksgiving card was available for a full week.

most have appeared under the gpk 2016 election section.
https://www.topps.com/shop-entertainment-brands/garbage-pail-kids/2016-election.html
(you can see all the prior offerings on this page)

the thanksgiving set had its own listing under the general gpk sticker section

Print run of 467 for the No Tweet Sleeping Pills.
that's the highest number yet for a wacky.
with these numbers, I'm sure we'll be seeing more cards

Wow... gone for a few weeks and a whole new development! 

While I've missed all of these so far, it's great to see Topps bringing Wackys into their print-to-order one-a-day sales lineup.   

I'm not a huge fan of non-actual-product-based Wackys or the nature of political Wackys such as they are, but it's good to see nonetheless.

Maybe, just maybe, some of the animosity towards the political excursions can be attributed to the two year (or close to it) campaign that finally terminated a few weeks ago or so we thought.

Jason, that's the spirit!  I agree that it's just nice to know we're entering 2017 with a feast of Wacky-ness!  Like 'em or not at least they're out there for those with interest.  Mid-year I had a feeling that 2017 might be the year without Wackys.  Now look, we're getting these limited cards, a 50th Anniversary Set and Olds 6.  Not too shabby!   Now, I won't be collecting 'em all but I plan to have fun collecting some.

Will you have two for sale at once? Still getting acclimated to the $10 per day Wacky Habit. Not sure how I feel about $20.   ;)

I like that Duck and Hide Thanksgiving themed Wacky, this is the second time Topps used the name to spoof Duncan Hines, the other time was original sticker series 12 in 1975.

Thanks. So far it's been fairly easy to keep up to date and capture all the relevant data. Hoping it stays that way 😏
