If there is another set I definitely plan on continuing the Aurora kits. I did this with the monster cereals.

I also have some more OLDS roughs Jay did that we hadn't used and will do some more of Jay's 70s roughs.

I'm glad to hear what you've said here on both counts, Dave.  I believe there were 13 Aurora monster models and I bet I had all of them at one time or another.  That great James Bama art is wonderful in its own right and does indeed lend itself well to Wacky-ization.

And any time Jay's work can be used is a plus in my book.

I'm not sure I'm recommending this (in fact, I'm probably not), but the idea of parodying comics is somewhat intriguing to me.  I mean, Wackys didn't do that back in the 70s, though they did satirize magazines.  And ANS had a couple comic parodies, so I don't think it would be too far afield to do a couple 70's classic comics in a future OLDS set.

Have you ever seen a 90's card set called Defective Comics?  I bet you'd like it!  I'm sure there's an extra set or three here somewhere....

Also, I never seem to get a "New Posts" face whenever I put in a new post. Can this be fixed, please?

You automatically see your post after you post it, so it is no longer new to you.  So, no, can't fix what isn't broken.

I have seen it, Pat, and I loved the idea.  However, I was quite disappointed by the quality of it.  I bought a set years ago but never even bothered putting it in sheets.  Great idea, but just not great execution.

Topps sale ends today. How long after the sale ends do they normally post how many sets were sold?

I was hoping it would already have sold out.

Same here

Numbers can be posted within minutes (wrapper sales were up within an hour) or sometimes next day or so

This set is awesome! Great artwork and great gags! Dave are you going to post your blue rough sketches with notes? Those are always fun to see before the final art was decided.

Print run 955

like last year, this is the number of $50 sets (1/3’d sets)
Giving:  318 1/3 full sets.
Last year was a 400 set sellout (1200 $50 sets)

Assume that’s like last year, and that’s the number of 1/3’d sets
Giving:  318 1/3 full sets.
Last year was a 400 set sellout

Not sure if it sold out or not. Doesn't have to to have been successful though. They upped the sketch amount a bit this year so there was more to sell. If it had any problem this time around it's due to not getting some of the better sketch card artists on the project. That will be corrected next time if we do it again. Only the best ones will be on it. I'll also do sketch cards if they give me good time for the paintings.

It would be a blast to be in the room and watch Dave lay down a painting on canvas from start to finish, especially one of the more challenging ones, like the glass bottle work on Chunks.  Would sure beat watching that Bob Ross and his big Afro talking about the “happy little trees.” 😂😂😂

These sales look like they will be enough to sustain future releases. I doubt a sellout is required for them to keep this going.  Old School Forever!

Real quick heads up that I'm going to do the raffles on Monday night. My daughter wants to help out and pull names and that's the best night. I'll write all the people that sent me confirmation with the details this weekend.

Second that.  The awesome cartoonish appearance of those packages that already have silly characters adds up to a product group just screaming to be parodied.

Also, love the bullet-riddled concept of Shot Tamales - falls right in with the handful of OS titles done similarly, some of my all-time faves - Shots Candy, ShotTissue, Graft Cheese, etc.  Keep em coming!

Tomorrow night at 7est I'll be having the Wacky Packages Old School raffle for the people that bought 3 or more of the deluxe option Topps offered. The three top prizes will be an original painting from the series then two of the roughs. Anyone that does not win one of these will get a consolation prize! More detail tomorrow early afternoon!

Amen Mark.  A tweak to the well-known adage is called for:  “Live each Old School Series as if it were your last.”   Quality new releases are few and far between.

I was out of town for the big sale and missed it.  Hope to get a base set in the secondary market.   I have yet to see any sets hit ebay.   I would be willing to pay up to $10 for the Evil Knievel Sticker.  By far my favorite toy as a kid.   Anyone have any extras for sale.  Thanks.
