Pee Wee's Playhouse Topps - 1989
Notes: The complete set is very, very difficult to complete because the activity cards were distributed with only a few different ones per case, and are suspected to have had numerous short-prints. (Though, it's hard to tell for sure because the short-prints might all be in the unopened cases.) Even if collation were perfect, it is not possible to complete a set from a single display box - There were more 1:pack stickers than there were packs in a box. Picture cards have two variations per number, based on what items are shown in the blue background; a set is often considered "complete" with a 33-card numbered set instead of the 66-card variation set. The three mask/disguise activity cards also also had mirror-image variations that are not considered necessary for a basic set of 123 items; a complete variation set consists of 123+33+3 or 159 items. A lot of collectors will satisfy themselves with the basic card set plus wiggle toys and tattoos before pursuing the really difficult items required for a complete master set. Many thanks to Richard Law Orloski for all lists except for the base cards and copious details on the variations!
