2021 All-New Wacky Packages
« on: January 08, 2021, 12:44:47 PM »
Well folks, it's a New Year and that means an all-new installment of Wacky Packages! Details will be coming very soon, but I figured I'd take Patrick's advice and get the thread started now. Get ready for a smorgasbord of amazing Wacky stickers!!!

I'm excited and nervous at the same time! The single $15 weekly set was something I could afford.

Hopefully this next offering will be similar in price, or at least not weekly.

If they keep it weekly, I hope they skip any Week 5 sets, like they did with December.

Monthly would be better, allowing us and our wallets to breath!

This would also allow for the following: (Dave)
- Monthly themed release
- 9 Cards TOTAL (with a puzzle Back)
- Official Checklist (Card #10)
- One Sketch Card (B&W or Color)

That's It! - KISS!

Maybe it will be some sort of title card. Similar to what Dave has done with the recent Old School series ?

Cool! I'm glad the price is the same, when you take in account the weekly sets were $15 each. What sucks is there are 4 Wonkys now to get monthly.
So me buying only one set monthly will only give me one Wonky, where before, the odds were better getting several Wonkys or GA cards when I purchased them weekly.

The problem based on the past is there is no guarantee if you buy 4 sets that you will get all 4 Wonkys. Iím not paying $240 to get duplicates. And thereís no guarantee if you buy 5 sets youíll get all 20 coupon backs.

Yep, the Wonkys are now going to be more expensive to complete.  I might have to give up on them, which will hurt.

I don't see anything about what will be on the backs of the base cards.  2 puzzles and 2 misc??  Plain white backs?  Would be nice to know.

I've got some serious thinking to do in the next few days.

I agree.  You now have to spend even way more money than before - with no guarantees of completing sets of peripheral cards, only chances.  Now, only the people with lots of money to burn will be able to complete sets.  Meanwhile, the rest of us lose.  For the life of me, I can't see why Topps can't just put out a simple, straightforward set without gimmicks.  I like the idea of new Wackys, but it's a bit difficult being enthusiastic when you're also disappointed.

Theyíve certainly made the Wonkys tough again. Itís too bad there arenít two per set. Guess one was sacrificed so they could include a checklist, so they could hold it at 28 cards.

Money?

For me, I'd like them to release a set EXACTLY like the original series. White OR tan backs, thick black borders with sharp corners, kiss cut, and have certain double prints and rarer cards. As stupid as it sounds, the cards should not have perfect centering always either. Some of us on the forum are definitely still looking for OS upgrades, and that would be fun in the new sets. Instead of stupid variations, they could make a set just like the OS that requires upgrades to get a high grade set and that would be their money maker. For those who don't care, they don't need to buy another set.

I do like the playing cards though. I will probably buy a set of those on eBay when they eventually get put on there assuming they don't cost a heart and a lung.

I have to do a lot of thinking too.

 I'm afraid that the collation of these might end up like the Attacky Series 4 sets and we'll all be scrambling trying to trade our quadruple and quintuples of extras to try to complete one set.  I just don't know if it's worth the hassle.

  I'm thinking it might be more financially feasible to split the sets between 2 people. Get the discount by purchasing 10 sets;  each getting 5 and then purchase or trade enough to get 2 complete master sets.  Probably would end up costing a maximum of $300 for each to get a master monthly set if you're really unlucky and you wouldn't have tons of extras lying around.

13 months to complete the playing cards, if it stays 4 per set. We're all in for the long haul!

Ordered a set.  Glad it's now once a month, but might be harder to remember lol.  Is there a twitter feed to notify when a new set is out? 

I like that they are stickers now.  Gonna miss the guest artists...not really interested in the playing cards, but it seems fun to chase for those that are into them.
