Nope.  I want to keep Wackys going, but I cannot keep up with that kind of purchase every week.

With 5 cards each week, the price point will probably be $25, which equates to $100/month for just one set.  I doubt many of us can keep doing that every month.  Now if they were kiss cut with the wide black borders, no back variations, etc. then maybe.

I hope not at $25. The weekly GPK sets of ten cards are $20, so really these should just five cards for $10. I'm sure Topps'll charge a Wacky tax though, and they'll be more. Wait and see.

Is this going to be traditional humor or the recent political / entertainment / sports nonsense?

Agreed, $25 is a lot.  I'd love $10, and would probably buy an extra set or two at that price point, but $15 is doable.  What I meant in my earlier post is that I will not be buying 50 packs a week.  I'd like a set for pages and a set to put away, but again, it will depend on the price point.

Either way, I'm joining the buyers club here for whatever possible discount in group orders.

A bulk discount would be fantastic.  But Topps seems to have moved away from that.

I like to do the same, keeping it in an "unopened" state, but if they're not sealed in any way, there's really no point to doing that any longer.

I don't know the final price. I think it's roughly $15.

Will OS9 in November 2020 be all 1990's entries or a mix of 1970's/1980's/1990's entries?

If it was a 1990s series, it would go good with the 1991 series.

Then you could go back to the 1970s again, because I'm sure you've got a whole lot more ideas for that.

Hey, I just thought of something! Why not take all of the lost 1992 series Wackys that have already been published and make a series out of those, lol? Then we'd have the 1992 series at last! All you'd have to do is release a few more of them that haven't been released yet, but are already finished and ready to go if you didn't have enough to make a full 55-card set.

I don't seem to get the emails anymore.  I just logged in, and I'm subscribed.

I couldn't imagine how much the people who collect the MLB Topps Now are spending.  They release those every day.
