Any other changes to the monthly formula coming this year?

Yes! We are going to partner with one spoofed product manufacturer each month to produce a limited edition product in packaging based on the Wacky! (gotcha!)

I got the January set.  I also got an Elvis set.  I know that it is a waste of my money but Elvis is my Guilty Pleasure

I hear Paul Harris is the genius behind the Wacky Pachyderms card in the January set! Can't wait to see how it looks!

I have more than half the set now posted in the Master List. Your Play-Doe painted by Brent is a killer piece!

That is a low number, should help the resellers out there, when people who didn't buy get their Wacky Itch.

Re: low numbers for January, at least in my emails from Topps, all week long they never promoted the Wacky Packages set at the bottom of the emails among the other 5-8 products they want to promote.  Usually, they're down there at the bottom of the emails all week long while they're live.  Come to think of it, I don't even think they had a "Last Chance" promo on Wednesday morning's email.  So, lack of promotion may have been a problem here.  We may very well see non-regular forum members come on later and say, "I totally missed it!"

That likely didn't help.  I'm responsible for a drop of 20, which is partly because I (and my wallet!) needed a break this month.  Last month we had both the December sets and the Attacky Packages Series 5 sets, and another month with two sets (including Old School 10) was just too much.  Also, with some strange dirt cheap coupon sets on ebay lately, I'd have to lose a lot money just to match ebay, and I have always tried to charge less than ebay  :P   With such a steep drop though, I am a little sorry I didn't order more.  Wonkys and coupons are going to be a lot tougher to complete, and if people can't complete the January set, they might not bother trying the rest of the year........  that's what happened to me with the 2020 weekly sets.

Just now, but no shipping notice as of yet for the long delayed and may or may not be cancelled December 2021 Wacky sets?

My sketch ratio was 1 to 28.3.  I guess that's what happens when regular sketches meant for 747 December sets are stretched out across 1166 Attacky sets.

Received my January sets today.  The coupons were inserted randomly and not in patterned groups of 4.

Marc,

TY - Pat that sucks

Let's all be honest - We buy bulk sets with the goal of being complete - not to HOPE we get!

I thought you were still considering the coupons.  I actually enjoy them, and hope to end up with a set for myself, and help a few people here with trades.  But random insertion instead of groups is probably going to mean more trades than I expected.

I was, then I saw your post about how rare they were. I have to get mine in the mail to make my final decision.

Saw the new Jan cards on Ebay. Wonkys now have a very cool back which looks like a wrapper.

Mine were supposed to arrive tomorrow, and showed up today instead.  I agree, the Wonky reverse is nice!  I also really like the portrait reverse, with the Paste 'em gut=y painting Ajerx.

Out of 10 sets, I got 5 sets of portraits, 2 sets of Wonkys and two different extras, and one set of coupons (got the last card on the 10th set), with 15 different extras. 

Eggs-Lax is my favorite.

I don't recall the box being mentioned, but gotta say that I'm really digging the new box for the new year.
And now has the logo on the sides too.
