Another 'Event ' set today - the Oscars.
As always, no discount, so everyone is on their own to buy them or not.

Buying these "Event" cards at full boat makes me SOOOO appreciative of what Patrick is doing for us on the non- "Event" cards.   ;) ;) ;) ;)

And thank you once again, Patrick.  I came home to find my set waiting for me in the mailbox.

Maybe we need to re-up by Thurs this time around so as to not run out of funds if they do more than 4 prior to the weekend?

Didn't see your message there at all, as it's buried inside the quote box.

I feel comfortable with where we are, and I'm betting on just 2 a day for today and tomorrow.
If there is a surprise, we can work it out within this weekend's payment.

I'm thinking for this weekend, that we'll need to raise our expectations and pre-pay for 14 cards for the following 2 weeks.
As well as any additional if there's more than 1 Wacky card tomorrow and everyone has an IOU to cover.

It looks like the Bulk Buyers Club Members are currently in arrears.  I can re-up sooner than later if needed.

Increment 3 complete

3 new cards ordered today. A '2 card' IOU in place for everyone. (Although it was very tempting to just skip those 2 JungHwa Im pieces today and call it even. LOL)


1  CRIME? MAGAZINE
2  "COLONEL" BERNIE SANDERS
3  SWEDISH FIST
4  STOP-A-LEAK
5  AL FRANKEN BERRY
6  TRUMP'S MAP OF AMERICA
7  TRUDEAU COLOGNE
8  SPILLED MILK
9  HERíS PROTESTING CHIPS
10 WHITE HOUSE CONFIDENTIAL BY JOE BIDEN
11 PRESIDENT TRUMPíS UNWELCOME MAT
12 MAD LIBERALS
13 GNN TOY NEWSROOM PLAYSET
14 MOORE OF ME

Increment 2 cards:

5 delivered today, 9 out for delivery Friday


We'll definitely need to pre-pay for at least 14 cards for the coming 2 weeks. Maybe 15.
Plus everyone will need to back-pay for these additional 2 cards this increment that were beyond the 12 paid for.

I would suggest 16 (or even 18) plus the two IOUs.

Since we've begun the club, no definitive pattern with card releases has developed and we never really know what to expect.  I'd rather have extra money in the bank that spills over from one week to the next, rather than coming up short.  Patrick was generous enough to front us the extra money this time around - thank you, Patrick, and sorry for speaking of you in the third person - however 1) Patrick shouldn't be expected to fork out his own money, 2) a situation may arise in which he doesn't have the luxury of extra money, 3) payment is OUR responsibility, and 4) sometimes situations get "tricky" when money is lent on terms of good faith - and I wouldn't like to see the club fall apart over any disagreements and/or misunderstandings.  Patrick is doing a lot on our behalf, and he really shouldn't have to bear any extra aggravation if something were to go awry.

In addition, if we play it close with no extra money in the bank (like this week,) there is the possibility that we might get slammed next time not with 2 extra IOU cards, but maybe 4 or 6 or 8.  Who knows?  We really can't be certain.  And then maybe we would have to purchase these cards on our own - at full price.  Which I'd rather not.

Just tossing my opinions out there.  What does everyone else think?

I agree. Let's build in a nice cushion so Patrick does not get "Wacked" again.

seem to be getting a consensus on going to a higher card count plus ensuring some padding on top of that.
I think I'll go with 16, and include the 2 IOU on top of that for this weekend's payment. I'll send out PMs on Saturday.

And then maybe we would have to purchase these cards on our own - at full price.  Which I'd rather not.
While maybe not necessarily the preferred way to do things, my having to step in and pick up one or two 'overage' cards at the end of an increment I don't foresee ever being a show stopper for the Club. I know you all will be good for the re-payment.
And if some sort of problem does crop up, there should be enough time to work something out before the 'end-of-sale' time to ensure folks will never have to resort to trying to pick something up through the second hand market. That would not be fun for anyone.  >(

Yes, let me add my continued kudos to Patrick for all the work on this.

We speak your name.

p.s. I got word that the typo on the recent GNN Newsroom card will be fixed before print.  I think Topps knows about
the other one already, on the Un-Welcome Mat, but I still did mention that as well.

Received my set, as well.  As always, you have my thanks and gratitude, Patrick.

There may have been a small mistake, though.  Mixed in with the political/social satire cards were a couple of real, honest-to-goodness Wackys!  Be still my beating heart!

Bumping up the number is good with me. I don't like you spending your own money. I'd rather pay a little more up front so you're not reaching into your own wallet. You've already gone WAY above and beyond  :D

"There's just been more and more Wacky cards each increment, with the latest having 14 cards compared to 10 and then 11." - F&S


Perhaps we can put our psychic abilities to the test this upcoming round?

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I will personally send everyone (in the Bulk Buyers Club only, mind) a gift card for a Shamrock Shake at McDonald's (mmm... dee-lish!) who guesses the exact number of titles we will ultimately purchase this next round.

Just like in the club, event titles will not be included.

Whoever decides to participate must post their guess on this thread by the end of tomorrow, Monday, March 6.

The round will begin tomorrow morning, Monday, March 6, and will end late Friday evening , March 17.

The same number can be chosen multiple times.  (For example, three people can all choose the number "14.")

Note:  You are guessing on the number of "titles," not the sum total of all of the cards the club purchases during this time frame.  This also applies to those who are purchasing double sets - you are only guessing the number of titles, not the number of cards you will receive.

My guess is "17."



Fine dining at its best!
