It's no longer a case of where it ships from but instead where it ships to...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Dakota_v._Wayfair,_Inc.

Based on that Supreme Court decision, a state can decide whether or not to collect tax on out-of-state e-commerce. Amazon collects tax on orders from all 50 states now, Newegg is close behind, and eBay is at 27 states:

Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming

I've been paying tax on Topps orders since the beginning of online orders because they have a physical presence in New York (they even charged tax on ebay Topps Vault auctions), and Amazon has sometimes charged me, depending on the seller.  As of this year, Ebay and Amazon charge tax on everything, and I have to say, it is causing me to buy/bid less.  The sales tax on shipping really makes me mad!!

Hopefully that will be good enough to keep new sets coming!  I tried to order 3 extra packs on the last day but just missed the deadline.

looks like this one is about 40 more total sets than last time, which seems like a good sign to keep these coming out in the future

Just bought my three sets and looking forward to these.  While trading via mail is not nearly as much fun as trading in person, I hope I'll get a full set but perhaps do some trading of the chase cards.

I paid tax on my order.  I don't recall doing that with Topps before.  Does anyone know why/when that started?

If you live in the same state as Topps, they will charge tax. Of course, that is all supposed to be changing to where all internet sales are supposed to be taxable. I've yet to see it personally and if it never happens all the better. To me, no tax and free shipping are two of the best reasons to buy online.

Just got my Three packs and the art is Neilrific!
Now the down side- If you pay for a three pack you would assume TOPPS will get a complete set. Not the case.

If anyone is willing to trade a 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 15
I have extra- 3, 4 x2, 10, 11, 12

PM me

Thanks
Mike

Makes me think of the latest GPK release, where the 8 collector box cases contain 7 of one tombstone and 1 of another
Collation has gone to crap

So people who ordered 10+ packs of 5 are only getting one complete set of 15 cards?!!!! I thought for sure each pack you buy gets you one of three different groups of 5 cards. One guy bought 3 packs and got 10 of 15. So which 5-card group is super rare that people can't get more than one complete set? Aren't they equally printed. Confused!

How many tombstones are there - 8?

I believe there are 12 different
can't imagine opening a case of 8, and finding every box has the same insert!

Again one of Topps evil ploys- no guarantee complete set if you bought 3 packs. Hence BUY MORE POLICY. Then they throw Ludlow chase cards to complicate matters

That ploy only works if you can buy more, but you can't.  Even if they had completely collated their packs and you ordered three, you might have gotten the same three. 

Since there are 15 ludlow cards, I wonder if there are 15 different pack configurations.  Did anyone write down the contents of each pack?

I was confused earlier! I thought people who ordered 10+ packs didn't get a complete set of the 15 basic cards. You guys are talking about the Ludlow variants, correct? I can't imagine buying that many packs and not getting the combination of 3 packs of 5 cards without getting a basic set of 15.

Unfortunately, I was referring to the base cards.  Bought 15 packs and was only able to make 1 complete regular set. 
Actually got 10 unique Crudlows and 5 dupes.
