Does anyone have a higher resolution version of Neil and Halsey's ad with the shopping cart kid?  I'd like to print one out to keep in the binder with my cards (when I get 'em) but the one in this thread is only 800 pixels tall.

Tom thank you but it's actually the same resolution of 558 x 800 pixels.  For ANS 2023 someone had posted a version that was twice that resolution that printed beautifully.  But I will certainly print the lower res one if a higher res version isn't available.

Tom turns out I may have misspoken.  It seems my browser is resizing the images so your version may have indeed been an improvement so again thanks.  Patrick emailed me the one he found and that worked well.

Received a shipping notice! Woo hoo!

Of course, back to their usual trick of sending on a Friday, which puts the “overnight” out to Monday. Blargh.

While there was supposedly presses at the Duryea plant, most of Topps printing during the 1960’s through the 1990’s was done by Zabel Bros. Printing in Philadelphia.The Duryea plant was where the gum was made and cards were cut and packaged. Both the Duryea plant and Zabel Bros. closed down in the 1990’s.

If anyone bought a lot of these, and will be selling base sets, and hopefully Mars Attacks subsets, please post in the For Sale thread. Or PM me. Thanks!

Thanks for the replies now, you guys! I don't want to commit to a price now. I ain't doing that until I see what they're asking on eBay. Base sets should be plentiful and in abundance. Not sure on the Attacky Pack chase cards though. I'd rather buy from a member here so you don't have to get clobbered by eBay's fees. So it's a win-win situation for us both.

A nice green box, as shown in the ads,

I bought 5 boxes and it took me all of them to complete a base set! #40 was the most elusive for me. I made two coupon sets, though. *shrug*

I like the arrangement of cards in the packs.
4 puzzle back, hit, checklist, 4 coupon back.

Although way too many checklist cards. If they had made a 9-card puzzle, that would have been nice.

Got a really cool 2024 commission sketch from Kimber in the mail yesterday. I love her work and this Blast Blew Ribbon guy was always one of my favorites back in the day.

Fantastic card!  I also got a sketch from Kimber in my box and that's the third straight sketch of hers that I've gotten.  Since I like her work so much, I'm very happy to get them :)

So when my measley one box arrives, it sounds like there is zero chance of completing a base set. It should NOT take 5 boxes to complete a base set…

I noticed Topps is now marking the Variation cards. Wasn't the idea that there was a subtle difference that most would miss? That was cool and fun.
Now its a "Hit" card.  The differences are still subtle; but its just a matter of taking time to spot it. They should have left it that they noted how many varies there were in the set, but we had to ferret them out.  Hopefully they can do it that way next time.

I only bought three boxes and was able to make one complete set (puzzle/ads backs). So I will have many extras for those who need some to complete your base set. I will need to trade some of my Hits cards to complete other hit sets. See you all soon in the Trade/Buy section.

Taking a look at eBay this morning looks like base sets (100 cards plus checklist) are currently going for $125.  Surprisingly sellers don’t seem to be including wrappers and or a box like Swiski wanted.  Still a fair amount to be sure but if it can take 5 boxes to build one, seems about right.

It's too early to worry about pricing on these. Not everyone received their boxes-cases yet. I'm only after the 1-50 puzzle back set.

The 1-100 set on eBay is really a set of puzzle back with coupon back variants. The checklist still shows only 50 cards in the set.

Can one of our wacky experts here take a stab on estimating how many of each of the 5 variant cards were made?

Just going by trying to get all of the different stickers regardless of what's on the back, my one box got me one of each 1-50 except for 17,18,40,45.

Dave, well you should have no problem trading to get those 4.  Especially if you have a foil or subset card someone needs!
