Five Playing Cards are listed for the month?

Is that right? That totally corrupts what’s been going on so far this year.


Playing Cards:

8 of Spades
King of Hearts
10 of Diamonds
2 of Clubs
3 of Spades

Well I guess they had to figure out how to start adding cards into the deck. At the rate they were at there was only going to be 48 cards. This way there will be 52. But hopefully we’ll see 54. Maybe a joker or title card or something like that. Would be nice to have 54 cards. Would fill up the 9 card pages quote nicely.

The replacement is the 9 clubs in every pack this month.

I have no idea why these weren’t simply run for 13 months. Why awkwardly force them into 12 sets? Are Wackys dead come the New Year? Incredibly frustrating to be thrown this curveball.

Ah perfect. Makes sense. Thank you for the clarification:)

I guess if they don’t increase the monthly playing card total, maybe there will be a December bonus of playing cards. Who knows?? I never thought about the idea that the card series could continue on until 2022. I guess there could be a plan in place and maybe once the playing cards are done, there will be something else to chase?? Maybe one of the artists that has some additional information on if the playing cards will all be issued in 2021 or will continue on into the new year.

For some reason, I thought they were going to do 14 months so that they could include Jokers.  And, if they only wanted 2 Jokers, there could be 2 Wacky Logos.

I was also expecting sketches this month, but I guess the extra playing card is the replacement?

Where do you get the nice preview images you post on the Spread Sheet thread?

Agree. 14 months to throw in some Jokers and maybe a header card or logo card

The write up does mention sketches. Hope that’s correct.

Just collecting them from anywhere I can find them.
Most of the artists have been great about posting images on our Forum or on Facebook. Sometimes they show up elsewhere, such as their personal websites or other social media.

So for September a set will contain 2 of 5 possible playing cards rather than 2 of 4 (plus a replacement 9 of clubs).  All in all rather confusing...

As I predicted, but where's the checklist?

What is the lineup of September 2021 Wacky entries besides the ones pictured on the Topps September 2021 pre-order?

Thanks, missed the sketch note.  But, now I am UPSET about the playing cards - I saw 5 listed and didn't realize that the list didn't include the 9 of Clubs.  If it is truly 2 of 5 out of that list then I did not order enough sets to fill my little "Wacky Club" orders, and now I will have to place a second order, with more shipping costs because Smart Post cannot be trusted.  It's my fault for blindly ordering on "remote control," but, really, this means that playing cards issued at the end of the run will be scarcer than the earlier ones.

Can one of the artists here please verify this with Topps while there is still time to order more sets?

I see they added a note that every pack will include a 9 of clubs. So there will be 6 new playing cards this month. Still 5 playing cards at 2 per pack means some people may want to adjust their quantity anyway.

Do you think this may be an effort to wrap up the playing cards in December to end the 2021 series? Sounds like there are other Old School plans afoot that may supplant the current monthly series at some point.

They've always said "Build your own 52 card Wacky deck throughout the year.", but I figured it'd run 13 sets, not literally end at the end of the year.
This does seem artificially forced to suddenly squeeze them into 12 sets. It botches the odds in the packs and the playing card population as a whole

Now that the September 2021 Wacky checklist is on line, one of the entries for September 2021 is "See 'n Slay" - What kind of See 'n Say does it spoof? Maybe the longtime "The Farmer Says"?

That's what I was thinking, because if they add 1 extra card for September, October, November and December that will be 52.  But it is awful, because the last 20 cards will be produced in lower amounts, unless we all start buying a lot more sets.  And then, no Jokers, unless they add them in like the 9 of Clubs this month.

Unless that second 3 of clubs was meant to be a joke(r).   :P

Can someone confirm when these are available on the Topps site each month? I managed to find my way to the "online Brands" and "wacky packages" area, zero for sale. This was today. I see from previous posts that the pattern MIGHT be that they are available for one week only, from a Wednesday through the following Wednesday? Does the 7 days begin the FIRST Wednesday of the month? or the second?

The 2021 Monthly Wacky sets go up for ordering on the second Wednesday of the month, for one week.  The September sets were available until yesterday, maybe around lunchtime?  There is usually a link in this thread when they go up.  Or, you can subscribe to Topps' email list.

September sales 632 sets.

Slight bump upwards, perhaps a combo of folks chasing sketches and those chasing the five base playing cards.
