Do we think we will see these cards shipped by Fri? That would be 13 business days from sale's end. The site states they will ship 15 days from sale end.
seriously doubt it. seems like most of their items ship late.
For fun, ask any of the GPK crowd about the recent Meme Set.
That one was supposed to ship within 10-12 days after its countdown clock ended -  which was back on October 4th.
Most of the buyers are still waiting for them to ship.

Asking again here.  I have moved and need to change the shipping address on my OS7 set.

I ordered the set as a guest via paypal so I didn't have an account and don't know how to access the order details on the Topps web page to change.

Can someone please give me a phone number to call to talk to Topps?  They haven't answered my support ticket.

Maybe a dumb question, but have you set up mail forwarding through the Post Office? Topps's Customer Service number is 1-800-489-9149

That would surprise me. I'm thinking more like middle of next week (12/19 or so).

Thanks I talked to Customer Service and they were very helpful.  I didn't want to change my address with the post office yet, because I was concerned they might lose the order.  I've had problems before after moving.  Anyway Topps has changed the order to my new address.  Very nice lady I spoke to.

My thoughts too. If you've put in a COA with USPS, all of your mail (with the exception of 4th class junk mail) will be forwarded to your new address for one year.

I guess you don't live in West Virginia  :]  Never trust them here with COA especially my OLDS7 set.   8) 
Anyway Topps changed the shipping address for me.  "Now" I will put in my COA.   :]

Remember, you are also looking back on WP with rose colored glasses. I guarantee a ton of the OS series you have or had no idea what the product was. Especially as a kid. You only know them now because of the OS series. I thought the majority of these were really common things and if not they were still highlights of many 70s nostalgia sites. I try to check through those when doing these to get good ideas. A lot of these products are still in use today. The only one I never saw was Joan of Arc Beans (which is still around). I used it because Jay did a nice rough for it and it was a staple for him in the 70s. Chocks was the other one I was vaguely familiar with but it was a pretty big vitamin brand. What here have you never seen?
Dave I meant to ask earlier - do you consistently get actual vintage packages to work from, or are you often limited to internet images, magazine ads and such?  The finished paintings look like you had the packaging in hand, no suggestion you’re working with anything less.  If you’re not, I imagine finishing off the side panel details on boxes must add some challenge, depending on the perspective of the image you’re working with.

No, I use old ads and photos for all the work. I've been able to find multiple views to get sides and tops. Also I use YouTube and look at old commercials.

The C&D is no problem anymore. We only really had a few minor issues since ANS started up.

I think I still have a lot of good products left. A few of the categories are thinner than others. I guess I can always do more toys/ candy/ cereal rather than pull a more obscure medicine product for instance. I just always like to mix up the categories.

To date, is Disney the only company that has a C&D on Topps to make Wacky Packages spoofing Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars characters? That's what caused Topps to cancel a planned Star Wars Wacky Packages series in 2014.

Dave, I'd like to ask you a question.

What's the date of release for OLDS 1 and OLDS 2? I'd like to put this information in the Wikipedia Wacky Packages article and I figured when in doubt, go to an expert-or, in this case, the original creator of the concept.

I know that OLDS 1 came out in February 2010 and that OLDS 2 came out in late March 2011. All that I need is the dates of the months. If you could please tell me what they are, that would be great! Then I can edit them into the Old School section of the article. Thanks!

Hey, I went back into my emails but they only are going back to 2012 at this point so i'm not 100% sure on that. If anyone has access to the other WP Forum fif you find the original threads for the releases you should be able to get the exact dates.

I ordered a few of the Red Sox World Series on Demand sets back in October, just got them
the other day.  Although they still are technically on sale....

Yes, not the most efficient customer service around.  I do think they are willing to help
and are trying, they just have the worst communication skills or the most ancient
computer system around.

Thanks, David! What's the web address for this forum and can I get on it easily?

And by the way, what's "fif" supposed to be really?

Argh!  Got my shipping confirmation and it has my old address on it.  WTH?   >( I talked to Topps directly and she said she changed the address for me to my new house.

Oh well, I have my COA in for USPS so it should get here either way.  I'll be on pins and needles until it does!  :]  C'Mon Topps.
