Are the orange borders on the postcards, bio cards or masks?
A

Just the base cards.  They are very pretty with the glittery sheen Baked Bears mentioned.

May be a dumb question as this is the first Halloween set I have gotten my hands on directly from Topps, but I seem to have gotten 2 small artist cards? Are those the bio ones? I thought it was only one per set.

You got lucky!  There was supposed to be just one bio card per set.  Were they the same?

Yes, Bloodweiser Ontap, you got lucky.  Unfortunately, someone else probably didn't get one.

I got mine today.  I bought 6 envelopes and got at least one of each card, including the orange borders.  I got some extras of some of the cards, but no extras of others.  So, not perfect collation, but better than I've been getting with the weekly series.

Thanks Neil, and I overreacted a bit, which I apologize for.

I missed out too, man, as I haven't been able to log in for a while either.  So, you've got company in the boat.  Looks like it was a good one, too.  Really like the 'masks'.  Great idea, Neil.  Back in the days when we flew from all over the country to attend Parsippany, Philly, and Chicago shows & reunions... I always thought a Halloween Party with everyone dressed as Wacky Pack characters would be fun.  Thinking about some of the characters, a lot of the old-timers on here wouldn't even need masks.  (hah!)  But I won't name names.

Any observations on the insert ratio of the orange background postcards?  Is 1 out of 6 a fair guestimate?

I think so. I got  7 packs (one shipment of 4 the another of 3) which  netted one orange set.

Is there an autographed limited edition and a unautographed regular edition (like there was with past series) this time around or not?

I have three sets coming so it sounds unlikely I will score
an orange set. Time will tell. I wonder if they sent any one pack orders
the orange set?😀

Oh, jeez!  That's terrible.  Are there a lot of people still waiting?  I thought the lack of Halloween trading seemed odd......

My sets just left Florida, moving up the coast very slowly.

Can someone please post a picture of an orange boarder card. Not sure if I understand what these are.

One question: did Wacky Halloween Postcards 2020 do well; i.e., well enough to spawn another series later and when compared to the original five Wacky Halloween Postcards series from 2009-2013?

They sold out shortly before the 1 week sales window closed, so I would think that Topps was satisfied.  But, the limited versions of the earlier Halloween postcard sets also used to sell out, and they still hit the pause button on them until last year.

The best Halloween item Topps has produced is the Binder IMO. The artwork on it rules.

That binder is truly wonderful.  I wish I had bought more of them, as it seems a lot of people missed out.

That's good, I think. Since Neil's bringing out Halloween 2021 (the last I heard), maybe there'll be another postcard series next year. If so, I'll have to be ready for it.

I've got a question.

How much was Topps selling a pack of this series for, including shipping and handling?

I mentioned this before somewhere; on eBay someone was offering all three Postcards binders (the red Postcards one, the yellow Postcards one and the orange Halloween Postcards one) each for $199.95 plus $14.95 shipping.

The orange Halloween Postcards binder is gone, so I presume it's been bought. The other two, however, have not been bought - yet.

Those binders have settled on about $100, so those prices are ridiculous.

No idea why Topps doesn't print more binders, people really like them!

It is ridiculous; anyone can see that.

Whoever got the Halloween Postcards binder, I hope he enjoys it and he has plastic pages to put the postcards in it, as I think when it was originally made, this binder may have had no such pages (please correct me if I'm wrong, though).

And you're right, people do like the 3-ring binders and yet Topps only made them for ANS7-ANS11 and OLDS 1-OLDS 5, plus the special ones for the 1st-16th Series and a non-existing 17th Series.
