Ten in total

Thanks, Neil!  I do see the full checklist now :)

And, hey, while Topps is making a book with Jay's individual colored sketch cards, Topps might as well make a book of Wacky Pals ;)

So....do you get 8 mini boxes (packs) for $79.99 or is that considered one box?! The odds make it sound like you get 1 or 2 chase cards per box. So if $79.99 is considered one box with 8 packs inside, those chase cards are going to be expensive if you want to complete your set with aftermarket eBay prices!

There are 8 Packs of cards Per Box. A box is $80

1 Chase per pack, so 8 chase per Box.

Yes, some of the chase are going to be tough, like the Variant cards that are 1:6 boxes

Now the wait begins....to watch for the mail carrier. I can't wait.  :]

A touch more expensive that expected, and most likely will rely on the Trade/Buy pages to complete my subsets.

I sure miss buying individual/extra packs at the store...verses an $80 box.  :sad:

That's what I was afraid of! Looks like just a base set for me. With inflation, I have to budget my spending.

I don't collect the Wacky Pals, coupon backs, foil variants and sketches, but I really wanted the Attacky Packages subset since I have all the others.

So with 1 Attacky Pack chase card per $79.99 box, those are going to be expensive in the aftermarket!!

Topps isn't producing a book of Jay's sketches. I think people want it to happen, but not a done deal.

I like that the coupons are now just variations of the base set.

Some of the chase cards are going to be difficult. Ah, decisions.....decisions..... >(

Neil thanks for posting, these are just superb!  Great art and writing.  An in joke about Net Wt how fun!  I have to say as a gag writer writing those always weighs on my mind as it’s tough to do something new!  Congrats!

I will be ordering today and hoping to get a base set from one box.   If not, I will be looking to help anyone with the chase sets in order to complete my base set.  Stay tuned.

One box is probably all i can afford as well..With 64 base stickers in the box and 50 titles, it sounds like i will have to buy off other members or trade my specials to complete a set. The titles shown look great!

If I remember correctly, last year's 2023 ANS had poor collation, where you are NOT guaranteed a complete base set per box.

64 cards per box but there are 100 base cards in set.   50 base puzzle backs and 50 base coupon backs.

Jeff, good point.  So you may get a mixed full set.  Well regardless with all the wonderful subsets this time around I know crack’n packs is gonna be a blast!  I, for one, am going to try and minimize seeing or posting spoilers so I can really enjoy opening packs!

Assuming a mixed full set would be acceptable, and assuming no collation issues at all, my math says 0.0011% probability of getting a mixed full set in a single box. In other words, odds are around 890,000 to 1 against.  That seems too high - someone please correct me!

I didn't realize there were 100 cards in a "base" set.  I thought the coupons were the variations.  Now that I looked at the checklist I see it.  And there may be 101 for the checklist!  OOPS!

I think calling the Coupons "Base" stickers does not make having a set of 1-50 stickers with puzzles on the back an incomplete set.

This is the same as Topps doing the A and B sets starting with ANS11.  I'm assuming now that the coupon and puzzle backs will be equally produced.

So for me the base set will be the puzzle backs and the variation set will be the coupon backs. 

Equally produced, but not likely equally distributed among the packs.   :-\

Then there will be the 5 actual variation stickers, which I guess could be considered "C" backs, which I will also have to do without.

And there may be 101 for the checklist!  Damn.

There's a checklist in every pack, so you'll get 8 of them in a box - what a waste.

If there are 50 puzzle backs, but only 45 will form five 9-piece puzzles, why not put the checklist on the other 5?  You might not get one in a box, but you wouldn't get 8 of the same one.  I'm guessing the other 5 are examples of the completed puzzles - again a waste since the sticker itself is an example of the completed puzzle.  Personally, I would prefer to have no puzzle backs and just a 50-card coupon back set.  The puzzles add no extra enjoyment to the set for me.

I'm thinking that even non-mixed base sets are going to be expensive on the 3rd party market, and the hits are going to be incredibly expensive.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see.  I'm an old person now who's jealous of Pat's being retired, so I'm saving my money for retirement too.  :]
