Same as with the previous Old School sets, the tan color is printed on the backs of white card stock.

I don't think that's accurate.  The prior OS tan backs I have are either the same brown paper stock that were used in the original wacky tan backs or a similar flexible paper.  These cards are literally white backs with a tan color.  Very different from before.

The USPS tracking told me I'd get mine by 8PM tonight. It's 8:15 now, I think it's not happening. :(

NOOOO! >(

I actually just got off the phone with the Postal Service.  The person on the phone told me thta the place these all shipped from in Florida is a huge hub, and there's been a considerable backup there with things being shipped to Puerto Rico.  So if anybody else's are delayed, that's a likely reason why.

it's a thicker stock than the earlier OLDS sets have, but both are white paper with tan printed on the back.

I really like this set. It totally makes my Wacky year and rights the wrongs perpetrated by the 50th set. The price was high but was worth it.

Many thanks to Dave for fighting the good fight to make this set happen. Looking forward to more along these lines. All in well in WackyLand IMO.

I agree, this is a great set!  I didn't even buy a base 50th set, but very glad I went all in for this one.

Happy people like the set. I'll work on Topps to do some more positive changes should there be another set.

If anyone is interested in any of the paintings I have available check the OLDS6 Paintings For Sale thread.

I really like the set too. Nice job!
But I do miss the puzzle and checklist.

This is a great set. It has the look and “feel” of a set that could have come out in the 70’s. The art work is fantastic. Maybe if there is a 7th set we can get 33 cards like some of the original sets had.

Was just reading an old thread. (2014)

Dave mentioned about having each of the individual titles from Snatch a Pak (OS 3) in OLDS 6. Looks like that never happened.

Would that possibly take place in OLDS 7? Whenever that would come out...
