I looked on Topps.com and found nothing. It's a quarter to 1 here in FL. Something's not quite right here.

How many different coffin stickers?  There apparently at least 3, but is it 3, 6, or something different??

under the "Specs" section, it indicates that there are 3.

Postcard Set Configuration:
    (6) 5X7 Postcards

    (3) Coffin

    (6) Stamps

    (6) Postcard Sticker

so it seems like with some incredible luck, three orders would complete all the subsets

Topps collation is always total garbage though  :sad:

order placed and enjoyed that now I understand why I don't receive promotional emails from Topps any more, they completely deleted my account so there's that as a precursor to whether they will screw this set or shipping up somehow.....

I am getting really excited about this set!!  We haven't had Halloween Postcards with sketches in 10 years, and then to have Halloween titles used for the sketches is icing on the cake!!!!  I have to abandon the idea of getting every sketch artist and every title, but I expect to add some of these beauties to my collection!

Hmmmm, is this Neil's sly way of hinting that there might be a variation of this title in the set (left and right)? Sounds like something he is apt to do.

Are the Left and Right Twitch variants even produced, or is one going to be the rare "chase" version?

I thought I'd try the standard shipping option for once instead of waiting 10+ days by choosing free shipping.

REALLY looking forward to seeing many of the sketches.

My sets (minus an extra 6 I ordered later) arrived today.  Very nice, as always!!  Batty Ruth is awesome, and I love Red Clots.  Tough to pick a favorite.

Left and Right Twitch were evenly split in my sets, but it must be noted that they both were produced as postcard stickers.  And, there are comics on the reverse!!

All in all, a very cool set, and a worthy addition to the Wacky Halloween Postcards!

Received mine as well.
Lots of fun reading through and looking at them. And the postcard boxes are pretty darn cool too!
Even split with the Twitch Left/Right for me as well.
