Wow! Shocking!

It looks like it.

I almost didn't open the email, glad I did!  I believe this is a first "Breaking Wacky News" for me!  You always find them first  :]

Awesome! Hopefully they don't sell out quickly like the old sets did.

I do fondly remember those days, sitting at my computer on a late night, waiting to jump on ordering them when they went live.

Love this one Robert. The "Loss of Taste Guaranteed" is very topical and wacky at the same time! :-)

That inverted Ajerx is awesome!!! Anyone know the artist and/or writer for that one? Suitable for framing for sure!

It is the airplane stamp that's inverted.  Ajerx is the pilot!

Little confused. Maybe Topps' high pinnacle proofreading team at work again?

No mention of Bonus stickers in Pack Config; they mean bonus but wrote base (or vice versa)? Need to buy 3 packs to have a chance at full set (to get 6 stamps and 6 stickers)?

Set Configuration:
6 Postcards (5x7)
6 Sticker Stamps
6 Bonus Stickers - Sticker Version of the Postcards
1 Jay Day
1 Inverted AJerx
1 Sketch Card or Oversized Sketch Card (5x7)

Pack Configuration:
6 Postcards
2 Stamps
2 Base Stickers
1 Jay Day or Inverted A-Jerx Sticker
1 Sketch

I don't need a complete set of the stamps or trading card size versions of the postcards. Just a few of each bonus item is fine with me!

I only ordered one set, and hopefully I get the Jayday bonus over the Inverted Ajerx.

However, if they are numbered TS like previous bonus cards, I may have to track down the one I didn't get.

Sure, I'll sell you just the postcards for $50.  You'll get a lot more stuff if you just order the pack from Topps.
