I think paypal gift is a given for all these transactions.
yes, definitely.
also, so there's no confusion later, I believe the word 'gift' is gone from the PayPal types.

It is the "Send to Friends and Family in the US" option.

Do not use the "Pay for Goods or Services" option.

We now officially have a full 20 cards spoken for in the Buyer's Club.  :great:
Complete list of folks and the number of cards ordered are listed in the first post.

I think we've converged on bi-weekly payments and shipments.
Expectation of 3 cards each week for 2 weeks, then the 6 cards get mailed out.
Snap-cases will get round-robinned out in the order of your sign-up.

I'll send PM's shortly with more details for PayPal and mailing addresses.

**********  PSA for the Buyer's Club  ***********

Note: Monday there is expected to be a special 'event' set for the Inauguration.
Meaning it will almost certainly be just like the Golden Globes, Christmas, etc. special 'event' card sets.
Those 'event' sets were on sale for 1 week and there was NO bulk discount offered.

If there is NO bulk discount with "Inauguration", then the Wackys from the 'event' set will NOT be a part of our Buyer's Club.
As expected, today we got the "Inaug-hurl Ceremony" special event card set, and also as expected, there is no bulk discount buy.
Therefore these are not part of our Club purchase and you're on your own if you want to buy or not.
Some already have, some have already skipped.
Tuesday should be our first buy.
And we will also see if there is still just a single Wacky per day, or they've upped it to two...

The Mission Statement for the PoD Club is to minimize the cost of these online Wackys and to maximize our enjoyment of them.

Are the three 24-hours-only Wackies in the following link, from today, included in the first order for the amount we paypaled?  If not, any of us interested in them would need to order them separately and pay the lousy $9.99 apiece.

good question.
Those 3 wackys are the ones I mentioned above. They are part of an 'Event' set, Inaug-hurl, which are available for a full week (vice 24 hours).
There are no discounts for these, so they will NOT be part of our club's first order.
If you want some, none or all, you are on your own.
At the full $9.99/card.

Dave did the t-shirt and mask/costume. The Girl Scout cookies are Joe Simko.
Joe's painted many of the recent ones, and Dave did most of the early ones. Neil and Smokin Joe each have a title as well.
I need to update the master list for yesterday's cards.

OK, looks like there are four online series running at the same time:

Wacky Packages Alternative Facts
Twitster
GPK Trumpocracy - The First 100 Days
Network Spews

In addition to them there will be event sets (a la The Emmys, Oscars, etc) and Holiday sets.

Okay, we have our first Alt Fact Wacky up now

https://www.topps.com/shop-entertainment-brands/garbage-pail-kids/wacky-packages-alternative-facts/alternative-tally-counter-wacky-packages-alternative-facts.html

I will be buying this card for the Club.

There is also a Twitster card, but I do not consider this a wacky and do not plan to buy.
Let's discuss though. What do people think of that card?

I'm torn on that Twitster card, because it's not a Wacky but it looks like Dave G. was the artist.  Tough decision, but I lean in favor of including it.

I did that one. From what I understand there will be gags based on his Twitter comments with new art for each based on those comments.

If all this sells well enough I'm trying to see if they will do a once a week Old School online set with a 32 card ending time for each series. Do an 80s set, maybe a 1968 set for the die-cut period and maybe even a 1950s set. Gonna be awhile before anything like that happens though. Gotta finish the current Old School set still!

I think I would favor including the TWISTER also. Seems to fit in with the Internet Apps subset from several series ago.

I agree with Scot in that the Twitster card resembles the Internet App subset.  If there is going to be a Twitster series, though, I suggest that a second club is formed for that series, and we reserve the first club for Wackys alone.

I would also suggest that, for this week at least, those wishing to purchase the Twitster cards purchase them on their own.  (That way they are guaranteed to get them before the clock runs out and not miss out on any.)  It may be a day or two before all of the votes are in regarding his decision.

My vote is that we stick with the Wackys for right now.  After the week is over and the dust settles, we can see (hopefully) what the pattern is going to be for the weeks to come.  If we were to change now, in the middle of the week, poor Patrick is going to find himself thrown in the middle of a big mess.

$10 apiece and they're not even actual Wackys.

THIS  :iagree:
Thanks Rob, that was well thought out and captured much of what I've been thinking.

I formed the Club to buy just the Wackys and several others joined for that same reason as well. The Twitster card is not Wacky branded and it will be its own thing. While the card does hearken back to some aspects of old ANS Wacky backs, that's not defining as many ANS gpk's had similar backs (websites, etc.), so it's not one or the other.

If folks want to pick one up, you'll need to do it on your own.
And we can discuss more in the coming days.

Pumpkin Lie Pie and Fiction Facts seem like definites for our club, since they are in the Wacky section (and we already have Alternative Tally Counter in there from yesterday).  What about Hawaiian Punk, which is listed as a "Network Spew" under the heading of "GPK", but it sure looks like a Wacky, drawn by a Wacky artist, to me......

Too bad they don't show the backs of the cards as well. I read it the same way however. That PUMPKIN LIE and FICTION FACTS would be labeled as Wacky Packages and that HAWAIIAN PUNK was not.
