The continuation of the 2021 Monthly Wackys, but with sketch cards randomly inserted this time.  The March set is available for order on the Topps site until noonish next Wednesday.

Hey! Thanks for doing sketches of modern Wackys! It seems like the originals get all the love. I got a kick out of seeing your rendition of my Gravy Brain! Thanks! - Pete

I never tire of the classics...but thought this would be a nice break from them.

Looks like a lot of people are still waiting for their February sets to arrive.
My order arrived at Ellenwood, GA on Wednesday, aka the hellhole of Fedex inefficiency.
I won’t receive them until next Friday, even though the ‘expected delivery’ date is today.

Mine shows it left Florida this morning, even though I now have it in my hands in Terre Haute, Indiana. Go figure.

Any idea of the chances of getting a sketch card? Does one come with every set ordered?

Looks like the Wonkys have evolved into something more like a Wacky Mash-Up, where elements of a second vintage Wacky become part of the new spoof.  I think most would agree these are even better than the Wonkys made for the weekly sets.

Why not do Wonkys mashing up any 1970's Wacky Package entries with 1985 and 1991 Wacky Packages entries?

Glad you like them! Sometimes, combining two wackys does make the idea better (but not always). Depending on the Wonky, I think some characters seem to fly better solo.

But then the countdown timer says expires in 2 days...haha.

Which is it?

I ordered 10 sets.  The collation was good and I amassed a full set of everything in the first 7 sets.  However, one of the 7 sets was wrongly packed by a Topps employee and contained only the basic set of 20 and no Wonky, playing cards, or coupons. Given how much of a nuisance it is to complain to Topps, I don't plan to, so that set is available.  And I still have three fully unwrapped sets that I can make available for sale if anyone wants one - hopefully they include all the bonus cards (which I can check).

Mine arrived a day earlier than FedUp said it would, which was nice.  I also appreciated the good collation of this set, as I bought 6 sets and received all the coupons and Wonkys (and playing cards).  I can only hope that Topps will continue this distribution of the extras....but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

I am truly hoping that the good collation continues, too.  They obviously CAN do it, so they should always do it.

March sales of 625.

Glad to see the sales numbers were up this month I guess due to the sketches, but wth was up with all those website shenanigans?  I can't help but picture some web admin with a beer just making random changes.   :] :]  (it's not true, but hey)

Are they really going to ship in 3-5 days?  N.O. W.A.Y.  :]
