All good David! You've been such a great support over the years and i know how much the Halloween set means to you! I'm hoping next year we can launch a bit earlier so everyone gets the word. I think in the past, we'd start advertising in August, which seemed pretty early at the time, but in retrospect, worked out really well. This year's been a little unusual, as im sure everyone will agree.

I absolutely LOVE the Halloween sets ever since the 3 titles from 2009 all the way to the 2013 sets.   I was so bummed when 2014 did not come with a Halloween postcard set.    :'(     Thinking back on it, it played a part in my recent hiatus from the hobby:   ANS11 and the Chrome stickers were my last hurrah.   'Course I missed out on the 2019 Halloween comeback and I would have hated to miss out on 2020.

Wait a sec....I was just going through my wackys during this aforementioned period that never found their way to my binders....and there are my 2015 Halloween "pack o fun" packs with the cereal parodies.   I forgot about these!   I gotta get 'em in my binders.   Now I remember....these were produced by Neil himself!   So....was there a 2014 Halloween pack by Neil?   I don't think there was by Topps.   How about 16, 17, and 18?

Only two non-Topps series were made by Neil alone: 2015 Halloween Pack O' Fun and 2016 Halloween Pack O' Fun. A third non-Topps series, 2017 Halloween Pack O' Fun, was planned (and presumedly finished), but Topps heard of it and told Neil not to release it. To this day, it remains unreleased, no one besides Neil knows what's in it...and he can't tell anyone what's in it, either.

Since then, there's been a new third non-Topps series, Halloween 2019, and a fourth one, Halloween 2021, is being planned even as we speak.

You're right, Patrick, I didn't even think of that one. I was mostly concentrating on the series that were specifically labeled "Halloween".

It's the first in a series of Halloween cards Neil did. Here's the contents:
*Bat-O-Honey (Bit-O-Honey)
*Frying Pan Demonhead (Ferrara Pan Lemonhead)
*High Seas Kraken (Hershey's Krackel)
*Skorch (Skor)
*Snake Charmers (Assorted Charms Hard Candy)
*Mummy Way - Tut Size (Milky Way - Fun Size)
*bonus card: Lost Cabin Eeriginal Syrup (Log Cabin Original Syrup).

A second bonus card was planned but pulled due to printing issues. I hope we'll get it in Halloween 2021. Oh, Neil?

Sketch cards also came with it, too.

They look great Neil. A really fun item. I have the glow cards sitting out so I can see what they look like in the dark later tonight.  ;D

If anyone needs a full Halloween 2020 set, let me know. I have an extra set including base set, all 3 artist bio cards, all 3 masks, and all 3 glow-in-the-dark postcards. The only thing short of a master set are the 3 orange border postcards.

The orange sets seem to be about 1:6.

You really can't see it in the photos, but the orange bordered cards also have a metallic, glittery kind of sheen to the entire card.
