Will there be a Wacky Packages series for 2019?
« on: November 01, 2018, 12:19:09 PM »
I wonder when this month in November 2018 or next month in December 2018 we might get a preview of what the next Wacky Packages main series from Topps will be for 2019.

Hect, still no preview of Wacky Packages Old School Series 7 yet also.

I'm still painting Old School until the 9th or 12th. Should be out around the 14th I think. I'll see if I can get you a preview before that.

Haven't heard anything about a 2019 series but I expect the will eventually get to it.

Thanks for the update, Dave!  I look forward to hearing more about it and picking it up :)

Are you saying you could be painting until the 12th and the series could be for sale on the 14th?  That sounds like an incredibly fast turnaround!

I took it to mean that the art will be in the mail to Topps around the 14th.

No, I think the series will be on sale the 14th. I'm not sure just yet though. I am trying to get a preview image approved for tomorrow.

Guess that's because they don't print until they have all the orders after a one week sales window?  I was not a fan of that with the last series - you can't order more if you have poor collation, or if you just love the series so much that you want more.  I remember ordering extra boxes of previous Old School series.  Seems to me that Topps might make more sales over a longer period of time under the old sales format.

Please note - this does NOT mean I am not looking forward to the new set.  Just offering what I feel is constructive criticism from a dedicated fan.
