Is this really a thing?

The Topps page said "1 Sketch Card or Oversized Sketch Card (5x7)" but I haven't heard of any oversized sketches being found.  Those were great, the few times they were issued!!  The chance of pulling one was part of the reason I ordered so many sets.  Maybe one of the artists can confirm that I wasn't on a snipe hunt?  Did Topps tell a whopper??

There is one on ebay now. Apparently you have to look through the postcards in each pack to see if a 5x7 sketch is nestled among the postcards.

I actually DID that for the first order.  Was too tired last night, and was planning on doing that today.  I know for sure that yesterdays sets didn't have a sketch in front or back.........  There's still hope!!

Marc is correct! Make sure to check through your postcards! A few lucky collectors might find a 5x7 sketch randomly inserted in sets.

The 5X7 sketch would be in addition to the sketch in the foil pack?

I'm going to have to take a look then (and keep my fingers crossed)!

Same here, out of 24.  So that's 0 for 50.  Not quite gold Windhex, but...

How many did you do?  And, do you perhaps know how many postcard sets were made (for my ever expanding Master List)??

I was not fortunate enough to pull one of your 5 x 7 sketches  :'(   I was hoping for one of your classic montages of all 6 characters from the current set.

But wouldn't no sketch in the silver pack alert you that there was a 5x7? I highly doubt there are 2 sketches in a pack.

Sorry Pat. I dont have a lot of additional information, but hopefully this helps:

I cant say how many 5x7s I drew but I can tell you my hand was pretty cramped by the time I finished drawing them! And yes, there were a few montage sketches.

Don't know the number of sets made, but I know there were lots of sketchcard artists, if that's any indication.

As, for the  sketch card collation, I have no idea whether a collector might get more than 1 sketch with their set...

Finally opened my lone set and really enjoy this edition of the postcards. I especially appreciate the homage to Jay Lynch with the Net Wt Um Tut Sut line. Great stuff as always!!

I missed out on this. How much did a box (set??) of these sell for? Trying to decide whether to try and buy these on e-bay…

Its hard to put a price on in-demand discontinued products. What I don't like is when people double the price of still being made products. Seems like people prey on this. But, get off your butt and do some work and find the best price instead of settling.

C'mon John, did you really think you were going to find a deal after the fact?

You have a choice, buy it -or - not. 

If no one buys them, then the "profiteers" will stop buying since they can't make a profit.  If they stop buying, then Topps won't make as much money.  If Topps doesn't make as much money, they may stop making Wacky Packages altogether.  So drop cable and buy some Wacky Packages, even if you have to "pay the profiteer."

- Or - Pat (Raw Goo) will give you a better deal on a set, and you can support a forum member who's not a profiteer.

I already purchased a set of the 2023 stickers, I somehow got wind of those (probably here). Bought several boxes, didnt complete a base set, but was able to sell and trade my way to a complete base set. Topps  sends me emails about tons of baseball cards (i buy none) but no emails about wackys  (which I sometimes buy,) Go figure. I have to think they would sell a ton more Wackys with some kind of retail store model, but who knows what costs are associated with retail distribution.
