No, not yet.

I'm thinking Friday.

Update - got a shipping notice from Fedex at 2:44 pm today, Wednesday.  Better get my envelopes ready!

Got my FedEx notice a couple hours later, 3:40 pm CT
These will NOT be going thru Georgia. No more of those lies and delays.
I hope!

Well, mine seem to have been sent from Florida to Indianapolis, which is a first for me.  It isn't exactly on the way to Long Island...........  Tracking still says the package will arrive here by 8pm today, but I am quite skeptical.

Please post pics of your sketches when you receive your cards. I hope you get some sweet ones!

Same here. Indianapolis. I guess Iím happy it wasnít sent to Georgia? But Indiana is certainly out of the way from FL to TX.

My tracking reports that the package left Indianapolis at 9:29am today and arrived in Philadelphia at 10:51am...faster than any commercial flight.  Go Fedex!

My package spent about 5 hours and 20 minutes in Indianapolis, and then somehow made it to Jamaica in 36 minutes  :o  I might actually get this today, but not in time to send anything out.

That must be like the flight I took from Atlanta to Birmingham, and I got there before I left.  However, it took me over 2 hours to fly back.  I'm still scratching my head over that one.

So, 17 sets in, and I have 3 sketches, but only one coupon set, and 3 Wonky sets.  The coupons seem to be in groups of 4 again, but not consecutive.  The playing cards are all over the place - one se had two of the same playing card.

Yellow boxes are included this time.  More to follow!

Nope, I didn't beat the odds - no sketches in the remaining 13 sets.  1:10 seems to be the insert ratio for sketches.

I ended up with:
5 sets of coupons, with a group of four to trade for a group of four.
13 sets of the playing cards, with a mish mosh to trade to complete 2 sets.
Only 4 sets of Wonkys.  Horrendous collation there!!

See you in the trading thread!

I'm glad they added sketches to these. Now more sets will sell and I can secure a base set for cheap!

Has anyone used the Topps Wacky boxes as mailers?  As I was contemplating the pile of 30 yellow boxes sitting in my living room, it crossed my mind that with mailing labels and some tape, that might be a good way to reuse them before they just get recycled or tossed.

I wonder if there will be a preview of the April 2021 Wacky Packages set this week with the ordering coming the following week on April 14, 2021 (The day before Income Tax due date but it's extended to May 2021 this year during the COVID pandemic envolving into COVID vaccine rollout - speaking of Income Tax due, why not a Wacky Packages sticker pack spoof called "Tax-ey Packages"?).

If the plan is to release each month on the second Wednesday of the month, then the April release would be NEXT week, right?

Funny thing about Fanga/Fanta. I originally drew it with a more Bela Lugosi-type vampire, buy my Vamp/Amp got painted at the same time (which also uses a classic vampire), so a Nosferatu-style bloodsucker was a nice way to create some variety! Thanks to Brent Engstrom for making that switch! - Pete

Thanks for the compliment! Inside this 54 year old is hiding that 7 year old kid still drawing funny pictures of the teacher in class, trying to make the other kids laugh. It is very satisfying when the attempt is successful!

I love an Easter themed set, but wondering if these parodies should have been in the March set. Most people got their March sets in the mail during Easter week.
The timing was perfect.

Exactly, Topps really needs a product manager for this series who can keep things straight.  Still excited for the new set, but man, Topps give me a call if you can't work it out.   :]

While I agree; however when looking back at these years from now, it will make more sense in an April set.  Topps just needs to get these printed and shipped faster so we'll have them at a relevant time now.

I considered this when I saw the Easter parodies on the April wrapper, and came to the same conclusion that April makes sense.  Just like having Halloween titles in the October set, even if we get them a few weeks later.  I guess the problem is that Easter is sometimes in March.  But, this year it was April.

Looking forward to some sweet Wackys!
