Base sets are readily available for about $50.
And Matt has listed the chase sets at $100 for sketch and $450 for each back type.

I can see the Pencil Rough sets going for $100 ($3.33 per card );but I don't feel $450 ( $15 per card) is what the Parallel sets / cards will sell for.

Time will tell.

Yeah, that would be really fun. The lingo from the different eras would add more good puns into the mix and the art from anything below the 70s was really interesting. An 80s set would also be fun. They missed some good products.


I like the idea. Foney ads come to mind. I know most of the products, but still enjoy the ones I don't. I agree that the lingo, puns, and simple graphics from past eras would be interesting. I hope to see these type of offerings.

I see Matt has 28 base sets on ebay (23 have sold).

That's a lot of sets for him to invest it!

I've been watching the sales of them and it's strange when it gets down to 1 or 2 sets left, it seems he bumps the available sets ups to 5 or so like he has additional sets held back.

I fairly confident that between Matt and CardGary, they probably purchased 80 sets.  Huge investment but I bet they will do okay.

How long before they post the number of sets sold?

Hard to say. Sometimes itís a week before numbers are posted.

And they never posted the number of Jay Lynch tribute sets sold, which is annoying.

Scroll down on most any of their category sales pages and they show archives of past sales.
Such as the category with the current Turkey set
https://www.topps.com/shop-entertainment-brands/garbage-pail-kids/gpk-sets.html
Shows all the earlier gpk sets.
They do screw up sometimes, such as the July 4th, Summer TV and Wacky Fall TV set were there, but then later disappeared.

Sell number is now up

1200

Although that's listed with the $50 sets. $150 are not listed. Pretty certain that number actually indicates 400 full sets.

So $60 K from the sale. I hope that was good enough for Topps.

As it was a complete sell-out, it would be ridiculous if it weren't.

But is it good enough to warrant what we actually want - WP in a more traditional vein - as opposed to the substandard fare that was thrown at us earlier in the year?

I don't see how it's 1200. It has to be 400 total possible sets based on the fact that they probably had 1200 sketch cards. Divide that by three to get 400. Still, sell out and 400 is great numbers considering it's possible they would have sold more with over 3 days left and had they had more stock.

Can't see why we wouldn't be able to do more. They had to have been very happy with this outcome.

Dave,

   Can you please inquire as to when we will get our cards?

Looks like they just took the easy route by just showing sales of 1200 of the $50 cases, where all the $150 purchases were lumped into that and counted as a bundle of 3.
Concur - it's 400 complete white back sets.

Right now Topps is scrambling to bust open all those $50 sets and assemble the complete sets.  They won't ship until they've assembled everything.

Ha, I doubt they actually had anything assembled while the sale was going on. What's the usual time for online cards to get shipped? Is it past that already?

Topps always states in the listing the expected ship time - but left it out of the OLDS set. Sigh.
GPK classic was 5 business days. If this is the same, thatíd be today. Holiday week probably messed that up though.

While I do think it would be kind of cool to see sets based on products from the 30's and 40's and 50's, I wouldn't have much recognition of them.  I'd much prefer seeing an Old School set with 80's and 90's products.  Given that there have been 6 sets just based on 70s products (which didn't include the 500 or so original series Wackys made back in the day), I would think there would be room for plenty of Old School series of 80's and 90's products before running out of ideas.  If, after 20 or so 80's and 90's Old School sets have been produced, Topps/Dave wants to make a 30's Old School set, go for it.  In the meantime, I'd prefer to focus on those products that I remember from my youth/young adulthood.

Perhaps the 30s set could be the subset instead of the rough drawing cards or something like that.

Wouldn't that increase the price of the set dramatically?  In effect, it would be two 30 card sets - 60 original paintings - put together.

$250 - $300 per set might be suitable for dealers, but it is definitely out of my price range.

Why not do reasonably affordable 9 card mini sets for the 30s, 40s, etc., along with a checklist puzzle for each set?

That's what I said. A subset. Meaning 9 cards like the Old School subset that was in the 50th set.

Richard,

       Thanks for offering to take those cards off my hands.  The quest for them was quite a ride for me. Just buy a few thousand packs of chrome and maybe you will land a few.   8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
