The night I ordered my set, there was a glitch in Topps' site and although it seemed my order sent through, I couldn't be sure.  Thus, the next morning, I clicked on the same frozen screen again (to make sure) and inadvertently wound up ordering two sets.

I haven't received them yet, but when I do - assuming I do get two sets - I'll sell you one at cost plus postage.

Just to make sure, we're talking about the postcard set rendered in regular colors, yes?  Not the sepia or gold set (or whatever it was) or possibly some other set of which I am unaware.

That's very generous of you. Are you referring to the 5x7 set? I was looking for the regular sized stickers, is Topps selling a set of those? Sorry, I should've been more specific.

Yes, I was referring to the 5 x 7s.  Don't really know if Topps issued a regular size set.

My understanding is they did not. Regular sized stickers, I believe, are only found individually in the wild. [Someone please correct me if I'm wrong]

Also happy to hear I'm not the only one still waiting to receive the 5x7 set....

I received my 5x7 MLB opening day set in Saturday's mail, so they are on the way.

Ok, so does anyone have a regular-sized set they've put together from packs for sale?

The only regular sized cards I've seen are in the Opening Day baseball card packs. I have one color and one gold set of the 5x7's. Still wanting the smaller cards though...

I've just seen the Kansas City Royals Mustard insert card on eBay for $14.75, so I guess a full set will spring up eventually.

At this point, I'm glad Topps liberated me from the need to "collect 'em all."

I'm still struggling with that, though I've been judicious about the really expensive stuff, I still feel the need to get almost all the officially released products. Even if the MLB stuff is truly awful.

Cognitive dissonance!

Same here.  Know exactly how you feel.  Done a lot of wrestling with this lately, but the little red devil on my shoulder always seems to come out victorious.

It is kinda crappy that after the MLB/Wacky release last, Topps then releases on extension of it as cards within a baseball set. I am glad for the postcard set offered by Topps but, in fairness to collectors, I think they should have also offered the trading card sized as well. And the postcard set doesn't even show up under Wacky Packages on the Topps website. If Neil hadn't mentioned it on the forum, who would have even known until they started showing up on eBay?

These started as a subset within the 2016 baseball set before the MLB/Wacky set showed up, if I recall right.

Offering what is a fairly rare insert for sale as a set defeats the purpose of it being a rare insert. I don't think they'll end up being super expensive given the apathy with which baseball card collectors have received these so far. It seems to be mostly wacky collectors who want them.

Agreed.  But, even at $15 per card, I'll once again be passing.

I received my 5 x 7 postcard set yesterday and managed to score two of the regular size cards on the bay at lower prices. I am glad I got a few of them because they have different color backs which are replicated in the larger cards.  I am happy withe larger size so you can really see the art detail...and a few of the to illustrate the primary release.

I bet we will eventually see most of these fall to around the $7 to $9 mark. I picked up several early on for less than $10 apiece  but people are really scalping the two Chicago and the RedSox titles. Asking as much as $45.

Anyone... anyone...?

I'll even take a set of 5x7 if there's a spare out there.
