Speaking of sketch cards, can someone please explain to me what "return" sketch cards are all about? I guess I don't understand why some of the nicest sketch cards I've seen are not randomly packed like the rest of them.

Happy to help shed some light on this! Return cards are the blanks each artist is given as a part of their compensation for creating sketch cards. It's always a very small number compared to the pack inserted cards. The artist is free to sell or trade  them to collectors beyond the product release, so we tend to  take a lot more time on them because there aren't the same kinds of deadlines. As a result, the quality is typically much better than (but not always!) a pack pulled sketch.

A little late to this party!  But I notice what seems to be a postage stamp theme here?  The inverted Jenny and all the sketch cards looking like perforated stamps.  Being a long-time stamp collector kind of makes me sad I missed these!

Do you have the stamp booklet that was released with Series 9?  LMK if you need it!

I am pretty far out of the loop on newer Wackys.  Don't even know what you are talking about!!

I was just today thinking of posting here "where did the new postcards go?"  Well, you can't tell from MY inbox that they have shipped, but hopefully!

My notice came later last night too, but it has an expected shipping date of the 18th.  I figure I'll get them on Monday, as usual.

Weird. I went back and checked mine. It shows shipped on the 16th with expected receipt of today (5/17/23).

My first order arrived!  They come in a very nice box!!  Going to be a pain to mail, though.  Out of 10 sets, I got 4 upside down Ajerx cards, 6 Payday cards, 2 sets of regular sized cards (with dupes to build a third), and no sets of stamps - I got skunked on #5.  But, I have an order coming tomorrow, and one on Saturday.

Here are my sketches so far.  Two look like they are painted!

I love the fancy "cancellation" on the Grimm sketch.  I have most of the titles figured out, I think!

Yes, all done!  I am considering starting a new thread since this set is so different - even larger cards, nothing signed or numbered, no bio cards or "TS" cards.

Did anyone pull a 5" x 7" sketch??

Post a pic!

My later orders are stuck in Upper Macungie Pa.  Tracking showed one projected for Friday, then Saturday, now nothing.  The other said Saturday, now nothing.
 I decided not to pay for shipping for those orders.........

I'll be sure to ask my postcards how it was when/if they get here.

It's funny, I never pay for shipping and they always get here two days after next day gets theirs. Not this time, says no delivery date. What the hell is that???

Yep, sometime after 9 PM the Saturday delivery date just went away, and hasn't been replaced yet. 

Update - now it says Tuesday.

For the last several days, I have been getting shipping notices from FedEx that say "Your delivery is scheduled for tomorrow."  I guess it's a moving target, but I wish they would be totally realistic and say something like "Your delivery is scheduled for sometime in the next 5 days" instead of continuing to string along the eventual recipient of the package (in this case, me).

I guess I didn't sign up for the email or text notices, but mine are traversing the east coast: Pompano Beach, FL to Ocala, FL to Concord, NC to Staunton, VA to Martinsburg, WV.  Now FedEx is saying it will be delivered today, but they're still 5 hours and 250+ miles from me.

Also late to the party... My shipment was hung up in L.A. for 3 days. I posted "needs" in the trading post but will probably have to go the eBay route to finish the set.

I was a little disappointed that the Jenny Stamp was regular card sized. I must have misread or wasn't paying close enough attention to the description. If it was 5" x 7" postcard sized I would have framed that one immediately!

Great looking set otherwise!

Also, I received this sketch from an artist I haven't seen before. Anyone know who this is. Looks like a 13*, and I don't see anyone on the Topps postcard webpage that might match that.
