I always thought a 1950s set would be cool to see! We already seen parodies from the 1960s until the 1990s.

Weigh in on this!  Winner-take-all or proportional?

I think Topps would only go for one decade at a time. We base the subset cards on the decade and if we did the 60s we could make the backs look like the diecuts. I'm surprised that the 60s is running away with this vote. I was sure the 70s would be the pick. I'm feeling inspired...

More issues with the Pittston depot? Hardly shocking. Just hope you don't have the same guy who delivers to me.

still curious about what happened to having an Old School box for this set, vs the generic black Topps On Demand box?

Anyone else notice that Old School 10 cards are cut slightly crooked. I bought a set from a forum member and they all appear to be slightly crooked.

I don't know if it's an optical illusion and they are printed crooked, or if the cards themselves are not cut square.

I looked at some ebay photos of sets sold from various people, and it appears that problem is widespread.

It's not the end of the world, just a minor annoyance.

Or maybe OS11 could be 15 entries from one winning decade and 15 entries from the second place decade.

slamjim: If you do 1990's Wacky Packages Old School entries - even for OS11 and/or later - why not a Wacky Packages take of an 1990's Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog comic book?

Hey all,

Just giving everyone a heads up that I've had to delay the drawing for the prizes until after June 13th. Most likely within a few days around that time. Personal stuff and overwhelming deadlines until then are preventing me from putting in the time to do it right. I have acquired enough prizes so that everyone will get one at least so please just be patient for about a month and then the fun will begin!

Welp. The Olds drawing will be this next weekend. After posting that last message I ended up with Covid which destroyed me for three weeks and I'm just starting to dig out of my work hole thanks to that. Everyone gets a prize though so look for the results here next weekend.
Thanks,

Three weeks for c19 is a bad one. Even after it is gone it seems to require time in order to get to normal but I guess that is better than it not going away if you get my drift.

I keep missing stuff.  Anyone who bought cases want to sell an unopened OS10 box to a completely out-of-touch, original Mag-7 collector?  Don't have the $ for the playing cards, but I think I can afford some OS10 fun if anyone can spare one.  (I'll try to check on here more often this month.)

Sadly, there no boxes for the last few series of Old School, but you can pick up a base set of Old School 10 on ebay for maybe $30 or so.

No box or packs?  What's the fun in that?  I thought the whole point of the OS side-sets were to satisfy that nostalgic feeling of opening vintage packs.  I'm I missing something (again)?  Guess I'm REALLY out of the loop not knowing that the coolest part of those sets had been expunged.  Hmm.  Supply & demand, I suppose.

The last boxes were OLDS 5.  OLDS 6 through 10 have all been only through Topps' website, if I'm remembering correctly.

I miss the pack-opening very much.  Probably one of the reasons I've enjoyed the 3rd series of Minis is that it's the closest we have to opening Wacky packs these days.  Have you picked up any of those?  All original series titles and distribution that's far better (not that that's saying much) than the first two series.

Yes, you've got it. That 's exactly right. The boxes and wax wrappers were only in OLDS 1 to OLDS 5. Then there was a slight gap, and after it was picked up again, it was changed to sealed clear plastic boxes from OLDS 6 all the way to the current OLDS 10. All 10 series were only available through Topps' online store.

And in case anyone wants to know, OLDS 1 to OLDS 7 had 1970s products parodied, while as of right now, OLDS 8 to OLDS 10 have had 1980s products parodied. In addition, 10 products from the 1970s were parodied in the Old School subset of the 50th Anniversary Series. Products from the 1990s have not yet been parodied, though they probably will be someday.

Even the number of stickers has changed. There were 33 stickers each from OLDS 1 to OLDS 5 and 30 stickers each from OLDS 6 to OLDS 10. Counting everything as it stands currently, 330 products from both the 1970s and the 1980s combined have been made into OLDS Wackys...and that ain't bad, to quote Jack Nicholson in the film Mars Attacks!.

Except that 85% of them were different parodies of either Captain Crunch or Frosted Flakes.  Of course I'm ridiculously exaggerating, but certain products have just been parodied a massive number of times in different ways (as is more fully laid out in a different Forum thread)!  Kind of just shows the creativity and imagination of some of these Wacky creators...

That's mostly been done in the modern series from 2004 onward, but as far as the creativity and imagination part is concerned, you're right on the ball!

In all 330 Old School designs/ products I did no repeat ANY original series titles in either the 70s or 80s sets. That has always been my top goal. All cereal parodies were of products never parodied before in WP. Cap'n Crunch designs were of Cap'n Crunch variations (Choco and Punch) so I would disagree wholeheartedly with this.

Now the weekly/monthly sets? Yeah, it's been the same products over and over again. That has to change.

Right, but Old School is actually the exception because there are no products in them that have been done in the OS, ANS or the weekly/monthly (unless someone did them AFTER Old School). And I think someone did do some Monster Cereals and Quisp after I did them

An OLD SCHOOL set hasn't done a parody of the short lived 1981-1982 Banana Frosted Flakes yet!

Hi All, well after a long wait here are the winners of the Old School giveaway. I had 20 people enter and instead of just the top three or five people EVERYONE of the twenty will get a prize! Everything is from Old School but from various Old School series nit just the latest one. I put everyone's name on a wheel of chance and each person had one name except people that bought more than three sets. For every three sets after the first one an additional name of that person was added. So the amounts ranged from 1 to 15 chances for some people. Once a name was pulled I removed all of that person's name.

Thanks for supporting Old School and I will contact each person to make sure I have updated mailing info and these will be shipped out this week.
