Cards arrived late this afternoon.

Overall, I'm pleased with the cards in the base set. However, my collation of the chase cards left much to be desired.

Over half of all my coupons were the first 4 cards of the set. I have FIVE extras of each!!!

Received 3 of the 4 Glow in the Dark Cards with FIVE extras of G2.

Ludlows were just a little better, but not by much.

Didn't get a sketch box and didn't really get any sketches that really impressed me.

On to the trading psot..... :sad:

Yikes!  My order won't be here for a few days, but I expect you and I will be doing some trading.

I got mine today.  I couldn't remember, but I only bought one set.  It's a great looking set!

If collation is that bad, I doubt I'll be pursuing the coupons.  I got four and two ludlows.  I'd have been happy if they had just made a sticker of the Alien attacking the camel instead of creating new backs.

It also looks like Topps followed their weekly series pattern by making card 10's back showing the completed puzzle of 1-9, so if you put them into a 9-pocket sheet in order, the second puzzle is shifted.  I certainly wouldn't have minded if they'd have moved this back to sticker 19, especially when all 20 were sold as a set.

My link to the set no longer shows details - what actually comes with each set?
The full set of 20 plus what other cards? Is a glow in the dark card guaranteed with each set?

Got my pack today. Nice set. I scored a Floydman color  sketch of Alien Jerks which is part of a three card Snack Pak Sketch Trio. Maybe someone on here scored one of the others?  Let me know.

Sounds just like the situation with my August Week 3 and 4 ANS packages. I gave up on using SmartPost after that.

Hope you get them earlier so we can do some trading.

This is maddening.  Maybe it's time for me to stop ordering from Topps  :sad:

Luckily I got mine yesterday. My sept week 4 set is a different story though - they got sent to Atlanta, then went on to Dallas on Friday. I’ve been waiting for an update since then.

A Floydman "Crash" box quickly sold on eBay for a best offer of $325.

I saw one on Ebay that got snatched up quick - I forgot to put it on my watchlist and it was gone before I could copy the picture!
I think it was a pupsi mashup but someone else indicated that it was Crash and they are correct - similar color scheme. Nicely painted as I'm guessing they all are -

Found it - it didn't have Series 4 in the title so my earlier search didn't find it.

How do you find sold items on ebay? I used to be able to do this without having the item already on a watchlist but that was a few changes back...

That's exactly what I was thinking!  I was picturing the buggy on the GWB  :] :]  Of course, if it's rush hour, the buggy would be going the same speed as regular rush hour traffic, so no problem, right?

My cards did finally make it to NJ (took 2 days).  My new estimate is Friday, which is better, but still not right.  Packages routinely get from their Edison facility to the local facility overnight, and are delivered the next day.  Oh, well, I'll keep telling myself that maybe there's a cool sketch box.

Mine arrived quickly for where I am located but for some reason, Topps broke my single purchase of 5 packs into two separate shipping’s. One arrived Sunday and one yesterday.

That's strange.  How many sketches did you get in each shipment?

There's another one listed now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/333785023692

It seems like dealers are the ones getting these boxes and then they just go on eBay, where the real collectors will have to shell out exorbitant prices to get one.  I wish there was a way to get them to the real collectors rather than someone who's just going to sell it.  I guess when America turns socialist, they'll be distributed better.

Well it's an auction, so it might go lower than the last one.  And, I expect that bigger orders are more likely to include a sketch box.  Quite honestly, if I luck out and get one of these, I might be tempted to sell or trade it, too.

I hadn't even realized so many people had already received their set(s).  Just checked tracking and it looks like my set arrived in my city by 9:00 this morning.  Guessing I'll get it tomorrow.  Looking forward to it!

I'm sure that it was done randomly and the bigger orders have more ping pong balls in the hopper, so they'll get a box, and I'm not willing to shell out $200+ for one.  I'm just saying that it stinks for the collectors who would love to have a box.  I'm also a Coca-Cola collector and they offer at times a yearly subscription to try out new products for $10/month.  Since it is limited to just 1000 and Coca-Cola is a big name, it typically sells out in a few minutes.  Then each month on eBay, tons of these show up at $35-50.  I definitely support Capitalism, but the collectors suffer when someone buys only to resell and profit, but it's definitely better than Socialism where the hard working suffer.
