I figure we'll find out when we open them.  Also, whether a pack will have all three with orange borders, or if they will be even more spread out.  If people will keep track/report here how they find them it will be helpful.

I believe the orange cards are randomly inserted, so it's likely you won't get all 3 in one pack.

For those of you that can't get enough of Halloween, here's some binder inserts I made especially for the occasion! Please keep in mind, these are not an official Topps product, just something I put together for fun with their blessings. The spine is ideally suited for a 3/4" or 1" binder, but may need to be trimmed to fit.

Also, the files are large enough that they should look good when printed on a decent inkjet or laser printer. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

They look great, Neil, and I just ordered my set.  Do you know if the wrapper they come in is more of an envelope or an actual wax-like wrapper?

Print the back sheet with some Glow in the Dark inks, now that’d be cool!

Topps should really think about selling these for all of their recent sets to those of us without color printers.

Thanks, Neil, for providing these!  I miss the days of the official Topps binders for so many sets.  Now, for the seemingly ungrateful part of this post.  Any chance you could do one for the Mars Attax Wackys?  Since I have nothing even close to official for those sets, and since they are picking up in number, I would totally love to have something for those.  And, if Neil is understandably too busy, anyone else up for the challenge?

Funny you should mention that. I am definitely going to try and put something together for mars when i get a little spare time. I suppose it should be a mix of old and new titles, right?

Fantastic!  Yes, I think a mix of old and new would be great.  Attacky Packages are definitely becoming their own thing and deserve a binder  :-[

I remember being away for a weekend when a Halloween set (2012?) went on sale on a Friday afternoon.  Before I got home on Sunday afternoon the limited edition sets of 600 had sold out.  I'm surprised that it took almost a week this time.

I think it was the lack of sketches.

Great to hear they sold all 600 sets. So I guess there are 200 each of the bios , GITD and masks. They should not be too hard to acquire. The Orange variant cards will be another story.

Hopefully everyone here will post how many orange postcards they pull.  Just guessing here, but I'd be surprised if the 3 orange cards aren't all in the same pack, replacing the 3 regular white cards.  The listing said to look out for orange variation "sets," and besides, I think it would make the packaging simpler.

I agree Pat. All or nothing on the orange cards.

Neil,

Did Wacky Halloween Postcards 2020 sell well, or is this the end?

And how goes it with the possible Halloween 2021 card set I think I may have heard about somewhere?

The 2020 set sold out, so in my book, that would warrant a follow up set in 2021, but we'll see.  Some of that will depend on what other projects are scheduled around October. Over the years, I've learned taht the golden rule with Wacky Packages is "never say never"!

That's something Topps doesn't make clear on their site - they use "Sold Out" for items that were available in essentially unlimited quantities, but only during a specified window of time, such as a day or a week, which is different from a set that had limited quantities and literally sold out before the time window expired.

Neil, I think you may have misunderstood me. The Halloween 2021 set, from what I may have seen on here somewhere (I think), is the possible follow-up to the Halloween 2019 set you did before.

You asked about the "Wacky Halloween Postcards 2020" set, which is what this thread is all about; that was a Topps product, and it sold out about 45 minutes before the 1 week sale window closed.  There were 600 sets produced.

Perhaps you meant to ask about privately produced sets?  That isn't in this thread.  And, although I can't speak for Neil, if Topps is doing an official Wacky Halloween set, I would be very surprised if there was also a privately produced set.
