Topps has launched another GPK online set today. This one is a team up with WWE Wrestling. Still no new online Wacky Packages Set or no new news on a 2019 set. Anyone have any insight? Any idea if we’ll be hearing anything soon. Maybe a new WP/Mars Attacks Set? Or even a new Mars Attacks Set. Just something other than GPK.

I'm sure there will be WP stuff later this year. Definitely doing Old School 8 for the same time as it came out last year.

That’s great news! Looking forward to seeing that. Old School 7 was an amazing set :)

Glad to hear that, Dave.  Topps has taken much of the joy out of the Old School experience with how they've changed the product (and price point) over the years, but your work is as wonderful and Wacky as ever.

I'm glad to hear Old School 8 is coming this year. But it's a little disappointing right now in March. The last 3 years Topps has gave us a new themed series in March (MLB, 50th Anniversary and Movies). I was hoping Topps would have done another themed series here in March like a 50th Anniversary tribute to the 1969 Wacky Ads. Bring on Old School 8 anyways!!

Maybe Topps will give us a "Cricket Edition" set.  That would be cool.  8)

I agree one million percent, I miss the Postcards!

But we have Mark Parisi's set, a new GPK/Wrestling mash-up,
and our own Joe Grossberg has done another one of his great
Par-O-Tee designs, and you won't be disappointed!

C'mon, Topps, pretty please?

I'm still waiting for my new Par-O-Tee, but at least this way I have something to make me eager to open the mailbox!

Sorry if I'm late to the party, but what are these new Parotee cards by Joe?

Check out this thread:

Joe's latest card (JG6) is available now.  I believe the shirt will follow later.  PM Joe for his paypal address.
