These new Topps Online store daily Wacky Packages have been fun, but as every one has noted, they cost a LOT! Unless you buy in bulk....

So, I'm ready to head up a bulk buyer's club - if there's enough interest - for the next print-on-demand series starting next week (1/24/17), for just the new Wacky Package cards released (no GPK)

The key though is that we have dedicated, consistent buyers. You'd have to buy them all, and couldn't pick and choose only the ones that you like.

As was mentioned over in the print-on-demand thread, there's a large discount when buying the print-on-demand cards in bulk (1/2 price or less) when compared to a single card purchase.

The idea is that we can pull together at least 10 purchasers, to drop the price from $10 to $5/card.

And if we can pull together 20 purchasers, it would drop it to $4/card.

The crux of the problem is the cost to re-mail the cards back out to everyone. My idea to minimize that is one shipment for a weekly set of cards. With all the week's cards together, it lowers the postage cost per card. Checking some prices online, it looks like I can do postage, mailer, top-loaders, penny sleeves, for about $3.50.

With the current Disg-race cards, they have been very consistent of late with 3 cards per week. Disg-race ends this week and a new set starts next week. (I'll guess a name of "The First 100 Daze"). Dave G. wasn't sure what form next week will take, but I think at this point we'll have to guess 3 new Wacky cards.

Something to be aware of is how long it'll be before you'll get your cards. They already take forever to ship when using smart-post. The recent ones have taken 2 weeks to get delivered to me after their on-sale date! Add a few more days before all cards for the week show up, and several more days after I re-mail them before they get to you. Looking at ~3.5 weeks from the on-sale date.

My plan:

1. Form Wacky Packages buyer's club member list

if there are 10 (or 20) cards allotted for, then -

2. Collect all the dues for the forthcoming 2 weeks

if, and only if, everyone paid up, then -

3. Purchase bulk set of just the Wacky on each day for the week and post notice of purchases

(if everyone doesn't pay in time, I'll have to forego the purchase though. I don't want to get stuck with extras. I'll post an early notice and refund everyone).

4. After 2 week's worth of Wackys have arrived, I'll pack them up and mail them out to everyone.

5. Rinse and repeat - for as long as Topps is producing these cards and we have enough members in the Club to make it worthwhile.

Example cost for getting singles of each Wacky, if Topps produces 10 cards across 2 weeks:

if we have a 10 card bulk buy - it would be $53.50 for 10 cards mailed

for a 20 card bulk buy - it would be $43.50 for 10 cards mailed
