I got my shipping notice also

Me too, from FedEx but I saw nothing in the notice that said "Topps."  Maybe I actually didn't get my shipping notice?

Think mine are on the way too!!  But, nothing about Topps in the email, just FedEx.

I got one today, too. Requested by Vince Sita in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Isn't that where the printing company that Topps uses located?

Fedex here. I wonder if it depends on the number of sets we bought? Different weights, different rates?

My notice said Fedex as well. We live out in the boonies and for small packages like this, Fedex often delivers to the post office who actually delivers to our house.

My email from Topps said FedEx Smart Post, but when I looked at FedEx tracking they have no packages with that tracking number. 

However I got a separate email earlier in the day from DeliveryConfirmationAlert@uspsshippingapis.com that doesn't mention anything about what the package was, so it looked like a phishing email.  When I checked that number on USPS tracking, it appears to be the correct delivery method.

Expected delivery

Hmm... mine just left a Fedex place about 2 hours away from me. The question now is whether Fedex actually bothers to knock on my door.

This will be the lasst time I ever front money for forum members.  Just go to ebay and take your chances there.

I willl be sending a $5 bill with the base sets.  Didn't have time this morning to send this PM to every person so, just one, here it is for everyone before more of you cancel.

Totally missed out on OS8.  All that talk of sales being low and not selling in Target anymore, etc., made it sound like they wouldn't sell out so quick.  Unless someone just ended up buying up a ton to try to make a buck on eBay from those of us who thought they missed out and really didn't, technically.  If anyone wants to part with an extra base set one day, I've got tons of ANS chases (foils, magnets, borders, etc.) I'm up for trading.  Seems like maybe the print run was low at 477... although I do like that number as it relates to the codes.

477 is actually a good number, almost a sell out.

If you need a base contact Pat (RawGoo). I think so people left her high and dry on some base sets.

Mine made it to New Jersey yesterday, but for some reason it will take until Tuesday to get to Long Island.  Very frustrating!!!  I would have loved to sort and pack these over the weekend instead of using a vacation day next week.

Pat,

   Thanks for selling me a set. You are selfless and more of us should take a page out of your playbook.

You're welcome.  I'm sorry for getting upset, but things are a little better now.  What I am praying for is that my pencil sets don't end up all evens, or all odds...... if that happens, I'm dead.

Does anyone have any extra base sets for sale? It looks like $36.99 with free shipping is the lowest price on ebay right now.

Since I'm not collecting the pencil sets (just happy to have a sampling), I'm happy to trade you for what you may need.

...and I just realized I want to collect them due to the puzzle backs.  :-X

Now that the dust has settled on Old School 8...David, maybe you can answer this. Was this set deemed a success in the eyes of Topps? Will be seeing anything else before Old School 9? Iím guessing Topps is done with retail level sets? What do you see the future of Wacky Packages looking like?

Just seeing this post now, but you ask some good questions.  I wonder how Topps viewed OS8 and what the future looks like.

I recall a while back when Dave was speaking optimistically about upcoming release possibilities, he seemed to at least hint that a return to straight-up ANS sets might be a possibility.  Meaning an end to the gimmicky stuff in the last few releases like MLB themed, Go To the Movies, etc.  thatís what Iím most curious about, though Iím not optimistic it would also be a return to $2 retail packs, boxes/bonus boxes/blister packs etc.
