I saw that it was mentioned that the Old School 7 set will be released in November..but is there an actual release date or do we have to wait for the day of email that Topps sends out?

Not sure. It might be tomorrow or Thursday as that was the last I had heard. That could have changed. I'll LYK when I find out for sure.

Looking forward to this set and particularly happy to see Grapefellow and Redberry made it!  I'm also glad to see that the puzzle is returning!  The closer we get to the original series (or, even better, to the first Old School series) the better.  To be honest, I'm not thrilled with various back colors, I just want as much Dave Gross quality Wacky nostalgia as possible, so I may stick with the basic set and buy 2 or 3.

I'll have two other classic 70s cereals in the set as well.

Yes, 30 cards, exact same format as the previous Old School with the only change being Checklists and Puzzles pieces will be added to the backs of the rough cards. So, not the exact same puzzle/ checklist format but they are there. There will be a Topps product as the puzzle. Same price, three sketch cards, Ludlow, tan and white variations. I tried asking for a header sticker (an Old School "wrapper" card to sit on the top of the stack) but not sure that made it this time around. I will also have the same contest deal for people that buy three and show me the receipt.

Will we get two options again?: a $150 full set plus other cards option and $50 partial set option. Please advise. Thanks

I wonder what superhero or cartoon character will be spoofed on the Ben Cooper Halloween Costume Wacky Packages OS7 sticker? Same for the spoof of Underoos?

Funny, I've been digging around in my basement lately, and just before Halloween I came across some Ben Cooper Star Trek Costumes.

If you look at post #787 in the Master Spreadsheet section, you'll see that Nabisco may have been on the C & D list a long time ago in the 1970s, but it sure isn't now, that's for sure.

No, I'm just planning to buy 2 or 3 of the $50 sets.  I can't afford the $300-450.  Wish I could.  I'll see about picking up a sketch card I like on ebay once the frenzy dies down.

Yep, that is the 70s Jay gag I used.

Space Food Sticks is a weird product that came out during the space race in the late 60s and continued through the mid 70s. It's shaped like a slim jim and is a protein stick or something like that. The box is great. It's almost all text. Jay wrote an amazing gag for it.


These things really weren't very good. They tasted like flavored sawdust with the texture of Play-Dough. But, as kids,  we HAD to have them because... Space and NASA and Apollo missions!

I also just HAD to have Space Food Sticks, for the reasons you mention.  But, I recall liking them (at least the chocolate ones).

Fizzies were tablets you would put in water (and some people put them in milk....ughh) to make it into a flavored "carbonated" beverage. If I remember correctly, it was made by the same company that made either Bromo Seltzer or Alka-Seltzer.  Goober Grape was a peanut butter and jelly mixture.

I also remember chocolate, and peanut butter, being the less offensive.  But if I had to pay for them with my own money... no way.

Then Goober Grape was similar to Koogle (which was done in OLDS 1 as Kookle), right? Just made by a different company?

They still make Goober Grape. I thought that one would be pretty well known.


Not sure the set comes out this week. I have been told to wait for an announcement. They are working through some stuff.

How can anyone legally protest parody stickers?  I mean, I understand why Topps doesn't parody Disney, and it's not for legal reasons, it's because they don't wan't to lose their Disney licenses like Star Wars.  But parody is protected under the law.

Good question!  I probably should have said two sets.  My reasoning is that I really have no interest in the various backs at all.  Which meant (when I ordered the $150 set last time), I only had three sketches for the extra $100.  And, quite honestly, I didn't really even like all that much any of the three sketches I got.  As I recall, I traded all the extras for a complete set, thereby essentially  wasting $50.  I did get the chance at getting some awesome sketch cards but it just didn't pan out that way.  Dave does amazing work, I love the retro products, and I want to support the cause.  But paying an extra $100 for questionable benefit doesn't compute for me.  There would simply have to be more to that extra $100 than what we currently get (unless the quality of the sketch cards improved a fair amount.  But, who knows, maybe I just got a bad batch last time.  Or maybe I'm getting spoiled).
