Found one on 3 Masketeers: "(They can't trick you if you keep them all gobblin'!)" The last word is missing a second "b".

There WON'T be a Halloween Postcard set this year. There were just too many other pots on the stove to allow time for it. A consolation prize, however, might be the bumper crop of Halloween themed Wackys in the regular October set! Keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow's release!
Off-topic for a minute, I know I said this somewhere else before, but I don't know (and can't find) where or when I did it, so I'll say it here and risk repeating myself. I've got a great idea for the next Wacky Halloween Postcards series that can be done with little to no effort whatsoever and probably both still sell well and make a profit.

Remember the 2020 series, when three Halloween Wackys from 2009 that were originally released on a black background postcard - namely Ghostess Fright Pie - A-A-Apple, Brick's Man Made Brick & Mortar Caramels and Bots - were finally released as regular white background with black border postcards (albeit with glow-in-the-dark additions)? Well, here's my idea - release the rest of the Halloween Wackys that were released on black background postcards as regular white background with black border postcards also (minus the glow-in-the-dark parts, of course)! These would be:

*Starbeast,
*Tootsie Troll,
*Hairi-Boo Ghost-Bears,
*Cracker Drac,
*Strike,
*Slayday.

These six are definitely enough to make a new series. Killing Sppprreee and Hellraiserettes wouldn't need to even be in this release, because they've already been done in 2013, the second one as an extra postcard and the first one as a bonus card. Artist cards wouldn't have to be done for almost all of them, either (the one exception being Hairi-Boo Ghost Bears, which wasn't done in 2011 (I think)), because they've already been done. It could basically be a simple, plain old ordinary set...no chase cards, nothing fancy or frilly, something like that (although maybe one or two (but no more than that) bonus cards with all-new Halloween parodies could be added into the mix just like before).

I just figured I'd throw this idea in the water and see if it floats. Thoughts, anyone?

It's meant to be a double entendre, so poetic license is probably at play here.  And even so, how do you know the first "b" isn't the one missing?

I should've said "another "b"" instead, then.

And thanks for the fact; I had no idea that that's what it was. I was thinking the word was supposed to be "gobblin'", as in "gobbling" or eating the candy.

Hope there's a Wacky Pals banner for the Christmas themed Wacky Pals comics for the December Wacky Monthly set.

Perhaps were any included in the middle of the base sets, as was the case for June?

This sounds more like a massive Topps distribution error than a strikeout by chance.  Maybe they either forgot to insert them or someone else will get a different set of 20 sets and they all have sketch cards.

I was in contact with a buyer of even more than 20 sets who also had an 0-fer. Topps has some explaining to do…

Who will contact them to get the explanation?  So far no sketch cards in around what - 60 sets or so?

OK, I just took the first step and called Topps, and apparently no one else had yet reported the issue.  I strongly encourage all of you to each individually call Topps customer service at 800-489-9149 and report the sketch card issue, so that they know for certain that this isn't just one or two people.  For all of our collective good, it will be worth the time you have to be on hold before you reach the live person. The guy I spoke with was very friendly and said he would look into it (but he did not take my number and say he would get back to me).  Call now!!

I did the same. Was also told it was the first they were hearing of it. Said it would be looked into and that I would receive  an email response in 2 business days. We shall see…
BTW wait time on hold < 1 minute.

Just got my order and opened 12 boxes (enough to complete a coupon and Wonkys set) and stopped opening.  Of course no sketch cards. Called Topps again and they said they were investigating.  This time they took my email address and said it would be a couple of days.

I bought 5 sets this time trying to get one of Neils sketches, which is more than double of what I usually buy 2. No sketches.

NEIL HELP!

Just received an email with the Topps response:

The Sketch cards for the 2022 Topps Wacky Packages September series are being shipping out separately via a Bonus order. If you are one of the lucky customers that were randomly selected, you will see a bonus order placed for you.

Lucky customer?!?

How about doling them out proportionally to the number of sets you purchased?!
