Anyone else still waiting for a shipping notice?
I am also still in "processing" for the week 1 set.  I'm considering putting my money towards other things at this point.

I received my two packs. No wonky.  :sad:  The first pack had five base, 1 coupon back 1 Lud.

The second pack had 10 base (2 sets) , 1 coupon back and 1 Lud. LOL.   :]

All of my packs had the coupon/lud pairing for bonus cards, other than the Wonky packs, which had either one or the other.

If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

I struck out on getting a color sketch in all 17 of the binders, so I'm sure I'll beat the odds again and never get a Wonky.  I can live with that.

I had the same luck with the binder sketches.  And now, I got one Wonky out of 10 packs  :sad:

I got one Wonky out of 5 packs.  I have an extra #1 coupon back and Ludlows #2 and #3 that I'd trade for a #4 coupon back.

I secured a Baby Rant Wonky via Ebay.  I don't plan on buying any others of the first 4 made. Not liking the others enough to buy them. Digging Baby Rant for the gag and the character. I have two young grandkids and can totally relate to that card.   ;)  Also wanted to have Wonky #1.

Sneak peek at the first of the June Wackys

Very surreal! And the cyclops is a nice touch.  Does anybody know who painted this?  It brings to mind some of Smokin' Joe's work.

Pretty sure itís Smokiní Joe.
He hasnít done a final painting for a couple weeks, so itís great to see a return of his work.

I thought and did the same thing.

Although I could afford the Wonkys, it would slowly drain my savings in the process.  Mind, I'm not calling the grapes sour.  I do like the Wonkys; They would make a nice addition to my collection.  I just cannot reasonably justify gambling an extra $300 - $600 dollars per month in order to try to obtain four cards, let alone the substantial cost of procuring these cards over the course of a year - mind, with no guarantees of anything.

So for Wonky Odds so far we have, 1 for 11 packs, 4 for 20 packs, 2 for 10 packs. So that sounds like 1 with 5 packs. Has anyone scored a Wonky with a one or two pack purchase? I want to figure out if they intentionally give you a wonky if you hit a purchase threshold.  That threshold may be 5 packs. Let's figure this out.  If there is zero chance of a Wonky with buying 1 pack, I may just buy these on Ebay going forward.

Having only received one, all I can say is that the Wonky I pulled was the last card in the plastic case, and therefore the back was visible.  Can't say whether other people might be finding Wonkys between the base cards and the last card.

Still no shipping notice for my second order for Week 1.........  and they expect us to pony up for Week 5 tomorrow?

You think this might be the reason that Topps has been so slow shipping these?  They know that once we figure out how much it's going to cost for Wonkys or master sets that those of us who are one and two pack buyers are going to stop buying from Topps and buy base sets off eBay instead.  In the meantime those multi-pack buyers are going to be stuck with base sets they can't sell and have to lower their prices on the coupon and ludlow backs to get them to move, so they're going to either get out completely or buy less?  Then the base sets will dry up on eBay, and we'll be oscillating back in the other direction.  O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!

I thought for sure we'd be seeing shipping notices for week 2 by now. They must be backed up with orders and shipping at Topps.

All my bonus cards were second and third in the pile, sandwiched between standard card #1 and #2. This included the Wonkys

So the only way to buy a wonky right now is via a $119 master set.  Considering the Alt Back cards are worth $3 - 4. That means you are paying about $70 for the Wonky.  Ouch!

Weird! Mine were all on the bottom of the case underneath the base cards.

Glad to see that some people who have bought 2 or 3 sets are getting a wonky.

I guess buying 6 packs will mostly likely guarantee that you get one. Is that worth $90 is the question?


Still no shipping notice for my Week 1 sets. Hopefully once it ships,  it won't be sent by carrier pigeon!

I ordered 4 sets each week. Seeing that some of you got the winky with 2 or 3 sets gives me hope. Unfortunately I will not be able to pick mine up until the border re-opens. Will post what I get as soon as get them. Will post my wants and trades in the trading section. With 4 weeks purchased and another set to be released tomorrow...yet only 1 set shipped. I may not be that far behind at this rate.

that is unfortunate
I bought something two weeks ago, not realizing it would be shipping from Canada, and got worried about delays
But it got to me just three days. I was stunned.

Itís funny how some things can be shipped over the border quickly and some take forever. The biggest problem is shipping to Canada from the US costs so much $$$$. Itís actually rediculous. Having the mailbox in the US saves the cost of shipping as most US companies seem to have a free shipping option. Even when I do trades with other members here. I go down and ship from the US. You get good pricing/tracking and service. Hope everyone is doing ok down there with everything going on before and during this past week. To all my US friends and members here, take care of yourselves.

My order arrived today.  Not sure if I ever got a shipping notice.  Bought one pack and got no Wonky.  Listed my ludlow and coupon backs on ebay.  Figure it'll help me recoup part of my cost, though it's so little it's hardly worth it.

My first week sets arrived with no notice! I ordered 4 sets and got one Wonky. All the bonus cards were at that back and I could see the Wonky card in it's plastic case as it was the last card and stood out even though I didn't know what the back would look like - got 4 ludlow backs but only 2 different ones!
Been so busy I forgot to order Week 3 - A

Getting only 2 unique Ludlows in 4 packs is ridiculous.

I FINALLY received a shipping notice for the Week 1 cards at 3AM this morning.
