I'm getting a very strong feeling about some sort of an SDCC set.   :clock:

Hmmm...

What do you know that we don't?  What aren't you telling us?

He's not telling you that there is going to be a full series 1-16 reissue set coming with 10 variations per card and 1:17,689 packs for each variation by Topps.  >:D

...don't expect much.

Or, perhaps, gold pressed latinum.

That occurred to me as well (gotta love Quark!), but it is quite long and might not have fit, and quatloos was from the 60's.  Sounds funnier, too  :]

great work again by Mr. Jimenez, as always.  "Itchie" is my concept,
and I believe Neil may have painted his own idea?

For just the 2 cards I want, price is the same. To much for just the ones I want. Anyone getting extras for the GPK, I'll take the wackys off your hands for half the cost of the 6 cards.

I hope Topps does more Wacky Packages and GPK exclusives for the site related to in the months to come:
Back to School
The 9/11/2001 tragic even anniversary
Halloween
Veteran's Day
Thanksgiving
Christmas
New Years Eve
...and will the Wacky Packages Old School series 6 come out before 2017 is over?

I actually proposed a Back-to-School mini-set, but nothing as far as I've been told,
and I doubt anyone would want to parody 9/11, that's just wrong.

Unless it celebrates grandparents day, which happens to fall on that day.

How about a Summer "Crickets" set commemorating the large amount of  "Nothing" going on in the Wacky World at present?

Relax, there are some things in the works.  Aren't we all the same people who
didn't like all those daily Print-On-Demands?  8)

I believe Topps and the great artists were busy with the new GPK set.

Joe G. has been gracious enough to offer his awesome Alien Joy card, too!

And we got a sneak peak at Neil's idea for Halloween.

Dave mentioned that he is working on the next Old School set, and that was a while ago,
so I'm sure it's closer to being finished?

Plus, might there be the possibility of a small Allentown Show set?

I can't speak for others, but for me, whether waiting for a new set, an eBay purchase, et al, the waiting and anticipation accounts for a large portion of the excitement.

I liked looking forward to see what the daily PODs might be (however, truth be told, there were a lot of disappointments.)  Also, after a while, I would simply find myself placing the cards from the various increments in their respective binders... and then closing them and placing them back on a shelf ten minutes later, quickly forgetting them as I waited for the next batch to arrive.  And so on.  Diamonds can be all well and good.  They're rare and special.  If you were given a few every day, however, I believe that rareness would eventually begin to wear off.   The first few you would place somewhere special, treasures to behold.  After a while, you would start collecting them in boxes and jars and other canisters.  Eventually, though, you would simply end up flicking them into a huge dragon's horde of a pile, one really no more special than - and quickly lost among - all of the others.

I, for one, am grateful for this hiatus.  If Topps came out with a regular set and an OS set each year, and maybe a few 9-card subsets in between - summer blockbusters, Halloween, Christmas, etc. (which I had hoped that's what the bundles might have possibly been,) I would be fine with this.  One would think that, with the less frantic pace placed upon the creative minds behind them, such sets would be very well thought out and executed.  I wouldn't mind have to wait two months in between sets, and, in all likelihood, would probably appreciate said sets even that much more.

And you know what "ALL GPK, just like last year." means to me? Less of my money is going to Topps! And I want to know this sincerely, are there really that many GPK fans? If you ask me, in reality, GPK is just a bunch of cartoon kids that are deformed in some way. And in no way am I trying to sound progressive, I just don't find the humor in these.

Another music set up today - Empty-V Awards.

6 titles/ 12 cards - all GPK

and watch out - if you buy the complete set, you might end up with an Aaron Judge baseball card (currently a wrong picture embedded on the web page)

Only a quantity discount on 3, and then it's still $15 for the next two.  Bar Trek is the only one displayed that I like.  Anyone know what the other two look like?

you need to scroll to the right in the images to get to The Flush (pic above). Still nothing for Young Shell-don
