Off the Market Series 3
« on: February 28, 2021, 07:41:41 PM »
Hi Everybody! Off the Market Series 3 is ready for preorders!

Thank you for your interest in these sets. They've been fun to make! They contain mostly concepts that Topps decided not to use.

Set includes:
33 base set
11 bonus cards
1 Hand-numbered title card
4-piece puzzle
9-piece puzzle
2 Checklists
3 Color variant sketch cards - watercolor/ink sketches

(I made the set so it will fill out 7 of the 9-card pocket pages.)

$45 shipped, no sketch card
$55 shipped, includes one sketch card
$70 shipped, includes all 3 sketch card variants

You can preorder and PayPal to MarkParisi@aol.com right now if you like. Be sure your address is included. Thanks again!

It's a little early to know. There's still some printing to be done, collating, sketching, mailing. Combine that with my laziness and let's say 2024!
How about if I say a month or two?

Let me know.

Will the Off the Mark strip do more Wacky Packages entries in the 2021 months to come?

Now I'm afraid.

Me too.  Very afraid.  After being collected, I'm afraid I'll be auctioned off on ebay and the ending price will be embarrasingly low.  But I can live with that.

Of course, condition is paramount. Would you consider yourself mint? How centered are you? Any writing on the back? Fading?

I have some wear so maybe I could be rated very good to excellent.

Technically, I'm a Mark with a K so I think I'm safe. And I refuse to send scans of my dings.

Mark, you are lucky.  They tried to put me in a large PSA holder the other day and I refused.  I'd prefer to wait until I'm deceased before I'm slabbed.

Oooh, what a pretty picture!  Wish I lived close enough to help sort (you definitely wouldn't want me sketching!)

I find the set building itself relaxing.  Setting aside the time is the hard part.

It's over 6,500 cards. Definitely making fewer sets next time!
