Glad to hear of this new set and look forward to Dave's amazing art and parodies.  Now please, Topps, bring back packs and boxes  :sad:

Am I correct that this release will be like OS7...basically a 30-sticker set sold in 'packs' of 10?

If so, anyone planning on a group buy or putting together a lot of sets for sale? Just looking for a base set with the puzzle/coupon backs and the wrapper header card. Not really after any of the variants or sketches.

I second this, though I fear that ship has sailed, as far as Topps is concerned. 

I may be in the minority, but I really liked having a bunch of the die cut stickers to stick on stuff.  Oh, maybe it wasn't that many that I actually stick with each series, but I used 'em. 

Now, they're UV-resistant instant collectibles, that have to be protected because of their high cost.   Not the most awful thing or the end of the world, but I liked the disposable sticker fun that the original Old School box-full-o-packs offered.

And I second your take, Jason.  Sadly, for both of us, the ship does indeed seem to have sailed.  I'm pleased to get images that are true to the spirit of the original series in tone and quality.  And I look forward to an 80's spin (even if the 70's is more my decade).  Not sure how to get Topps to change its mind, but if anyone has any pull, please use it.

I third the take.  I actually made peeled sets with the early Old School series - they look great in pages!

BTW, same thing as last time. If you buy three or more sets send me a receipt copy and I'll enter you into a raffle to win an original painting or any of three roughs.

Will anyone here possibly be selling base sets? This month has been expensive for me with other stuff. I don't need the parallels or sketch cards.

A new groupling of wacky masterpieces have been unleashed. For the record, I saw the checklist. I'm guessing that the She-Ra parody 'She-Ra-Ra is cheerleader based, maybe.

Just got my daily promotional email for them and the subject reads "Tatis Jr. Auto's! GPK Old School + MORE"

Bonne Bell Lip Smacker. They also licensed up with lots of brands like Dr. Pepper, Orange Crush, Hires, 7Up, Tootsie Roll, etc plus their normal plan flavors. The Dr. pepper was the biggest seller and the most famous. They even brought it back as a retro version a few years ago.
