Anyone know anything about this set of 133 from 2015 ? Did these come in packs ? There appear to have been other Weird Al cards since.

According to a post, they were sold in packs through his official website and were either sold or given out at his in-person shows.

If I'm remembering correctly, they were distributed in silver foil 10(?) card packs with a sticker on them and also in 50 count lots which came in a 100 count hard plastic Ultra Pro holders that had a "Weird Al" logo sticker.

I bought enough of both to finish the set if collation was good.

Collation was not good.

I bought a set of these at his show in Nashville roughly 8 or 10 years ago.

I was asked to link a photo of a pack and cards.

There are at least two different "Weird Al" sets.

The one that Tommy C is asking about in the original post:

https://www.tcdb.com/ViewSet.cfm/sid/151199/2010-15-

There are almost always some singles from this set available on ebay. I picked up the whole set earlier this year.

You used to could buy them on Weird Al's webpage:

The ones that Catskilleagle pictured:

These are new to me -- thanks for posting, catskilleagle! They came with the Deluxe and (sold out) Super Deluxe editions of this book.

Yeah, looks like the standard edition book for $ 30 does not have the cards

Bill, that Web Archive link does not seem to work

Hmm. Strange, it works for me.

Try right-clicking on it and "Open in new tab".
