A binder for all the Attacky Packages would be great!

How many sketches did you do for this set?

So the puzzle back is not one of the base cards, from what I see on the checklist, is that right?

I just got an email from Topps about this - much better promotion than for the last series!  I hope this series sells out so they will consider continuing these.

That's correct Patrick. "Spaceball" is a puzzle only

Actually, the correct question is:  what is Styx and the Pieces of Eight album, Alex?  I LOVE that group...and they still tour (minus most of the original band members, but you can also still catch Dennis DeYoung in concert now and then).

I think this is really the third series and Topps has "oopsed."

Nope, the oops is totally on me! The card's been corrected, so I expect the website should get updated really soon.

Nobody has mentioned the song title, which is of course, "Lords of the Ring". Styx and Pieces of Eight is correct, though.

Are these shipping NOW or 7-10 days after the sale expires? Something weird is how FedEx 2 day shipping was different on Saturday (when I ordered) morning compared with Thursday.

I saw the 7-10 days on the site but I thought it was just odd.

I love the Attacky Packages sets and hope Topps will keep producing them.

I just did my part and placed an order.  Just hope the cards are distributed better in the packs this time around.

Bummed I missed this post when it came up.  One of my favorite Styx songs, so I knew it right away.  But here's one for you (which I actually don't know the answer to and have always wanted to know...)

What the hell do they say at the beginning of "I'm OK" that sounds like "Eight, skate, seven-hour road-take"?

LOL! Actually, I didn't know this myself, but a little Googling solved it. They say "Hey, hey, hey, hey, eight, skate, seven on the rotate".

So....WTF does that mean? It's a term in the game of craps. I wasn't able to find out any more detail than that, except JY suggested it be included because the guys used to play craps a lot (while recording this album, I imagine). And, the verbal rhythm fits well into the intro, eh?

"Hey, hey, hey, hey, eight, skate, seven on the rotate".

Awesome!  Thanks.  40 years of mystery solved.  I never bothered searching it online for some reason.  So, what about that weird echoed voice at the beginning of "Fooling Yourself"?  Sounds like a rocket countdown, but is totally intelligible.  I miss Styx.  Well, 'pre-Mr.Roboto' Styx, I mean.  Cool Styx.

Sorry... no more non-Wacky talk.  Got distracted by the lyrics.  No need to migrate this one to another thread.  Wackys Wackys Wackys... Hopeless Snowballs, Scary Lee, etc...
