So are we thinking this will be packs at retail stores?

It says they are exclusively on topps.com, so not the rumored retail set yet.

Please tell me this isn't a gag, because that's how psyched I am about this. And with the 20th anniversary of the 1st all new series almost a year away.

Even so, if they went back to packs and boxes, now that would be great!  The "buy a bunch of base set stickers you don't want just to play the collation lottery to get the special inserts, at far too expensive prices" got old really quick.

Could even be tomorrow…
Although if Topps sticks with Wacky Wednesday on the 2nd Wednesday, that’s next week.
But probably anything is on the table at this point

Were we or were we not supposed to have gotten a retail release last year? There was chatter about such a thing.

Will this be a quarterly series rather than monthly like the last 2 years?

We've already been informed by the artists that there won't be scheduled releases this year, not monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly.  But, something's coming!  Yeah!!

This is looking to be the first major Wacky Pack set Release that is online only. Old School is more Niche I would think. This looks to be ANS. The online only cards from a few years ago were sold by the card.

I hope the chase cards or subsets will be more in line with what the monthly sets offered, and not brand new parodies. Likewise, I hope the base set will be easily attainable as well.

Well, since it says ALL NEW SERIES in big orange letters, that'd be my guess.

Since this is NOT a retail release, will we be treated to spoofs of cigarettes and alcohol products?  Vaping products?

Oh, I miss it occasionally. Just between what you and JailoJohn said, it makes me wonder if you actually look at what is posted sometimes.

My advice is to take a hard look at being more tolerant of others not meeting your expectations. The world would be a nicer place if that occured.

My excuse is I was looking at it on a small phone screen and could not make out the line that said "only at Topps.com."

Suffice it to say we can’t get every question in our collective heads answered from a one-page flyer.  Just gonna have to be chill and see how it plays out.

And here is my point exactly: looking at it on a tiny, itsy-bitsy screen (and hence, not really seeing it) led to the question asked. Maybe it would make sense to hold off on questions until you really can see it? Yes, in the overall scheme of things, this is a minor point, but it IS my point...

Andrew: I get what you're saying here. However, it can be frustrating to some of us when things are questioned which are (or are not) obvious. I really didn't mean my remark to offend anyone, but hopefully making a point such that we all can improve. For someone who enjoys humor, my advice is to have some with what is stated on this forum.

Wow, some really big hype going on for this new Wacky set!!!

>>> At the (March 2) Topps Conference, Fanatics CEO Mike Mahan teased, “Within the next month we will have the biggest product announcement in the history of trading cards.”

Well, tomorrow is the second Wednesday, and the flyer DOES say "coming this March" so the drop tomorrow makes sense.  Who knows... they have slipped drop dates before.
