Got my two packs of June Week One cards. The same Coupon back in each pack (Thingles) and a different Ludlow in each pack.  No GA/Wonky.   :'(

It is definitely encouraging (and much appreciated!) that Topps is taking a corrective action.

Agreed, but what corrective action are they taking?  It's like Zenergizer said, they promised X and instead it was Y.  I think a lot of the frustration expressed here on the forum stems from the fact that we don't know what X and Y are, and their email offers no details.  Finally with the last set up for sale, we got a small sampling of that, but all along others have been purchasing a lot of sets hoping to get a full set of ludlow and coupon backs along with a wonky and now a guest artist card only to be baffled by both the distribution and collation of chase cards.  If they're going to do that, then they should go back to putting them in wax packs and boxes and selling them that way.  At least hopefully you could get a full set by buying one box at $50 rather than spending $15+ for each base set along with whatever chase cards they want to throw in.

we'll just have to wait and see, but I have faith it will be good for all of us.  Other companies
could just say "too bad," but some people spoke and they listened, all good.

I think I missed exactly what Topps did here here to rectify their screw-up. I have received no corrective action shipment email. Who has and what did it state?

For those that got replacement emails from Topps. Did anyone order less than 10 sets?

I only ordered one set and got the email.  I'm guessing that the distribution of the chase cards didn't match what they stated on the web site:

ē 2 chase stickers - (1) Red Ludlow Back OR Coupon Back, (1) Wonky Packages OR Guest Artist of the Week

So they're probably shipping out just either a wonky or a guest artist card, which will be greatly appreciated.

This is the gist of the email:

you didn't miss anything, as none of us actually knows yet exactly what Topps is doing

Perhaps it'll be like one of the recent GPK weekly sets, where they were sent out missing the chase card.
Everyone got the 'replacement order' and received just the missing chase card.

Got June Week 1.  Wonky, plus 4 of 5 coupon backs (missing #4 Blistext), plus all 5 Ludlows (except I don't collect the Ludlows).  That's two weeks in a row I've gotten all 5 Ludlows in 5 packs.

Thank you. I ordered 4 sets and didnít get an email. Wonder if theyíll just automatically ship to everyone. I canít get my orders until the borders open, so I have no idea what I got. The way things are looking, I will have like 12-13 weeks worth of sets to open. Maybe more if they have sets in August or September.....

Did you check your junk mail?  Some of my email from Topps ends up there.

Maybe? Itís funny though. You and I seem to get our shipping notices at the exact same time. So that made me wonder. And as I mentioned before..with not being able to get my sets anytime soon, Iíll have no idea what I got. Itís driving me a bit crazy not really being able to be involved in the conversation here or so trades for what cards I may need....

I got correction messages for the 20 packs that came already, and a shipping notice for the other 20 packs. 

That's got to be frustrating, having the Wackys pile up.  For all you know, you're sitting on a pile of Wonkys!  I wish I could pick them up for you, but I'm about as far from the border as you can be and still be in New York.  Our covid numbers are really much better now - maybe soon they will open part of the border.

Awe thanks Pat! Itís going to be a lot of opening for me to do once I get them. And probably a fairly long want list spanning over 3 months of sets. Hope I get at least a few Wonkys!

No reply was needed.  The basic message is pictured a little further above in this thread.

Got my June Week 1 pack today - one coupon (Band-Ape) and one ludlow (Blistext).  So I guess my replacement shipment will either be a wonky or a guest artist.

Wondering what the ratio is for receiving a Wonky or a GA card. 50-50 chance?

something tells me that is very unlikely. 

my bet is Wonkys will be just as rare (1:10)

That works for me.  I've given up on getting the wonkys, so I'll take the guest artist card every week.

NO WAY.

I might have to get that pack, just for that card.

That brings back my childhood.

How much do the packs cost?

Cool! Looks like a vintage series parody. The packaging design hasn't changed too much over the years.

Glad you all like the Black & Blue Cats card! I wanted to do something "fourthy" to celebrate the occasion. There's more holiday themed fun in store!
